"We know that we're going to have to be on top of our game to stay on top of him". I know what my goals are and what our team's goals are.
"You're so focused that you don't worry about all that", said Eagles linebacker Dannell Ellerbe, who also played on the Ravens in the Super Bowl. At the time, it was a crushing blow for the Patriots' offense to lose Gronkowski the way they did against the Jaguars since it's no secret he's arguably the most unsafe pass-catching tight end the National Football League has to offer, but also is just another example of how risky the unit can still be without him.
Brady admits that earlier in his career, he didn't think he would get married or have kids until after his playing days were over. I think everyone should be honored that they have the opportunity to watch this happen. "I'm thinking about the Super Bowl and how to win it". Come Sunday, the Philadelphia Eagles will look to hand Belichick and Brady their third Super Bowl loss.
Smith said after the adjustments that are made, players might spend the time listening to music, watching film on their iPads or even playing games on their phones.
Pederson's connection to the Dolphins is one of several reasons why I'd like nothing more than to pick the Eagles in this game. He added that the star quarterback, who was drafted to the team almost two decades ago in 2000, can play for the team for as long as he wants.
Yet Belichick's legendary laser-like focus and attention to detail is squarely on the Philadelphia Eagles as he hunts his sixth Super Bowl title in eight appearances in his 18 years as the Patriots' head coach.
- Philadelphia has allowed just 17 points this postseason, the fewest of any team that has played multiple playoff games.
Said Pederson: "Why I did the break - obviously it was to put us in that situation, now we understand it". (Defensive coordinator) Jim (Schwartz) is going to have a good game plan for us.
"Just try to deal with what we got". If you are not in a place of balance things can affect you if you are too high or too low.
"Being onstage in New York City and being drafted by the Patriots, it was one of the best moments of my life", Gronkowski said.
Brady believes that meditating through the course of the day helps give him sustain his reality.
Given that the Eagles are a bit under the weather, it might be helpful that the Super Bowl's halftime has been extended, giving players a longer chance to rest. That's named for the light poles Philadelphia police covered with Crisco before the championship game to prevent fans from climbing them.
