We all thought no way it can happen again, there’s absolutely no way Nick Foles can step in and lead the Eagles on another magical run to the Superbowl again. As a Patriots fan I just couldn’t fathom it.
When I think of Nick Foles my eye starts to twitch a little bit and I have PTSD flashbacks to Philly Specials and BDN swinging that thing all over my face last year in the SB.
After Wentz went down earlier this season and Nick Foles stepped in, I jokingly told one of my friends that’s an unbearable Eagles fan that Foles was going to lead the Eagles to another Super Bowl and beat my Patriots again. It was a funny joke at the time, but now it appears that my nightmare may be coming true.

I mean this guy just cannot lose, he is now 7-0 in win or go home games. He didn’t even play all that great tonight, but when the game was on the line and he had to get a touchdown against the best defense in the NFL did anyone really doubt he would do it? I certainly didn’t. This guy just get’s the job done when it counts, simple as that. Yeah Cody Parkey blew it, but Foles won that game. Kickers miss kicks, legends make game winning drives.
There’s this part of me that wants the Patriots and Eagles to have a rematch so my Pat’s can get revenge and I can talk shit to every obnoxious Eagles fans that has let me hear it for the past year. But then there is this other part of me that would rather rip my fingernails off than endure two weeks of sleepless nights leading up to another Super Bowl with Nick Foles.
What would he do this time? Replace the Eagles kicker Jake Elliot and drill and 65 yard game-winning field goal in my face? Start returning kickoffs and run back a 99 yard return for a touchdown? You just never know. It seems like this guy can do anything.
With the Eagles players putting up shrines like Helga Pataki in “Hey Arnold” I don’t know how we can stop this.
It seems like my only option may be to take a play out of the Voodoo playbook from Pedro Cerrano in Major League and start my own type of shrine like this.
And yes I know Cerrano used Voodoo to actually help him but I need to try something, anything. I can’t have this happen again, it will literally ruin my life. I have to takes any steps necessary to take this man down. No more taking him lightly.
Obviously both the Patriots and Eagles have to win some huge games for this to happen again. But you’d be lying to yourself if you said it didn’t feel like fate that these two would end up facing each other in the Super Bowl again. It’s like Foles is the Night King in Game of Thrones and last year he killed my dragon but this year he’s coming to kill me and everyone I know. I can’t live in a world where Eagles fans beat my team twice in a Super Bowl. I already deal with Giants fans but they’ve been irrelevant for so long that it’s almost an afterthought at this point.
The Eagles looked to be on that path to irrelevancy earlier this season, but what do you know, here comes “BD” Nick F’n Foles all over again. Ready to swing that thing all over the place and ready to crush my dreams all over again.
