Super Bowl MVP Foles shares message
February 14, 2018
By STATS LLC Editorial
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles had seen plenty of successes as he guided his team to a victory in Super Bowl LII.
Despite his triumphs, Foles elected to deliver a message on failure during his appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on Tuesday.
"As athletes, we have an opportunity to speak about it, because athletes, we try to be perfect, and we're not," the Super Bowl MVP said. "We fail just like anyone else. We have issues just like everyone else. We have life. Life happens. It's OK to share those things because I think that's what makes us strong is overcoming those failures."
Foles shared a letter his wife, Tori, wrote to him when he was pondering retirement after the 2015 season. She said he "wasn't finished yet."
As for what his future holds with the Eagles and his role as fellow quarterback Carson Wentz rehabs from a torn ACL injury, Foles wasn't too interested in sorting that out at the moment.
"All that stuff will take care of itself," the 29-year-old Foles said. "We'll see what happens with my career."
Foles' career has seen plenty of ups and downs as he threw for 27 touchdowns against two interceptions during the 2013 season. He was traded to the then-St. Louis Rams in 2015, but released after one season. Foles then headed to Kansas City and was released before returning to Philadelphia as Wentz's backup.
