The Eagles are champs and Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles is now an eternal Philadelphia legend, but Foles’ long road to glory was paved in adversity and disappointment.
No single moment sums up the down period of his career than a scene from Hard Knocks where then Rams head coach Jeff Fisher called him to cut him after the team drafted Jared Goff with the first overall pick in the 2016 draft.
To be fair to Fisher, he wasn’t the only one who gave up on Foles, but that his inept tenure with the Rams is still producing new video evidence of bad decisions a year after he was canned is pretty funny.
Foles is on top of the world now, but this is professional rock bottom.
Nick foles could of easily given up in this moment when Jeff fisher called him to tell him he’s being released by the rams but he kept his faith didn’t give up and is now a super bowl mvp… truly amazing. pic.twitter.com/X0cMjH6dW7
