Sometimes, we forget this is a sport and some things are more than football. Foles has a reason to play and it is for his daughter. There comes a point in life when you are a parent and you get this new motivation from your kids, you want to set an example. On Sunday when Foles takes the field, he has the support of not just the team and coaching staff, but his wife and his daughter.
“Now to be a father, that changes everything. It takes the pressure away. I get to go home to her every night. No matter what happens, she’s going to love me. To have her here at this game with my wife is the greatest thing ever.”
This is without a doubt the biggest game in his career, but the nerves are not there, He knows what he needs to do and has the confidence and ability to do it. The journey Foles has been on is incredible and having the people in his life to support him makes it a lot easier.
