Default This has a "won the battle, lost the war" feeling with the Wentz injury...

Heartbreaking.

Great season however it ends. The team's ahead of schedule. Got a home playoff game for sure.

Dont give up on Wentz and dont underestimate Foles.

I mean, I'm optimistic. Just heartbroken in this moment.

What a ride! Worst case, we trust in Fooles and we hope for Wentz in November next year.

this is exactly what happened.

maniac is right but this really sucks because this team felt special.

i'm not counting out the possibility of a playoff victory with foles, but anything else...defense would have to play 5x better than they did today or last week.

No one is going to beat the Eagles at the Linc in January. This team is Super Bowl bound and then it is anyone's game in Minneapolis.

Default The battle looked lost

The Rams had all the momentum, were moving the ball at will, and we lost the NFL MVP.

The fact that they fought like hell to win this battle tells me they can win the war.

Foles has caught lightning in a bottle before. If it's his team the rest of the way, he just stepped into a dream-come-true scenario. No way I'm giving up on this season now... no fucking way.

unbeatable if they play their game. but if they get down early against a team like, say, NO...i'm not holding my breath.

won't be anyone's game if foles if throwing floaters against pittsburgh or new england. i hope i'm wrong. i doubt it.

Ajayi will likely need to go Beast Mode in the Super Bowl. He has 200+ yard upside every game.

Exactly. This is an excellent take. This team has been overcoming adversity all season and they could've easily folded when Wentz left. They had a built in excuse but they pulled out a tough win.

This season has been great on many levels. This just makes it even more interesting.

Pretty much where I'm at this morning. They haven't been in position for a bye in over a decade. Time to sit back and enjoy the ride. Meaningful December football shouldn't be taken for granted.

We all needed a night to sleep on this. Itís devastating to lose Wentz but felt like odds were gonna catch up eventually.

I highly doubt they can win a SB without Wentz though. May be able to make it but doubt they can pull it off. We will see I guess.

This fucking blows though. No 2 ways about it.
