The wait is finally over. After a grueling 7 month hiatus from NFL football, all 32 teams embark on their journey to hoist the Lombardi trophy. However for Malcolm Jenkins and the Philadelphia Eagles it is much much different. Reigning champions or not, there are still major questions for this Philadelphia squad as they set out for there first defense of the Lombardi trophy.
- Foles or Fluke?
- The reigning Super Bowl MVP has not looked as such in recent outings in the preseason, sending Eagles fans and the Folesian Society into anarchy. After being named the starter for Week 1, Foles must prove his playoff performance was no fluke and disparage the naysayers about his consistency issues.
