Eagles' Chris Long and LeGarrette Blount are chasing a rare feat

So, with a week to go and tons of hype to go before the big game, our Samsonite Make Your Case question of the week is: What are you most concerned about heading into Super Bowl LII, the Eagles offense or defense? They have battled adversity and lost several key starters, yet they continue to win.

If so, it may be time to stop as, according to Tom E. Curran of NBC Sports Boston, the New England Patriots actually test players for PED use independently of the NFL. At the beginning of the season, I don't think anyone would have been surprised to see the Patriots in this game, but I don't think many fans expected the Eagles to be here. There's a complete buy-in ... He's like 'it's awesome, you're going to love it, you're going to be a great fit.' And we traded notes on LA and Philly.

Blount didn't even get a carry in a loss at Kansas City in Week 2. It was the only 100-yard rushing performance by Philadelphia this season.

Blount played 2 1/2 seasons for the Patriots, leading the National Football League with 18 touchdowns and rushing for 1,161 yards in 2016. "Ain't nothing for us to talk about", Blount said (per PhiladelphiaEagles.com).

You might be asking yourself, "All right, if they're getting the same amount of money, then how is Garoppolo making more than Brady!?" No matter who's in front of us, we've got somewhere to go.

Ajayi came to Philadelphia with a reputation for selfishness, but it hasn't been an issue. "It's not a role that's going away, so it doesn't define us, but it's one of those things".

"Get all the ticket requests done", said Long.

The Eagles, which were underdogs in both of their playoff against the Atlanta Falcons and Minnesota Vikings, both victories, have relished the role. Instead, Zolak believes that Brady still has two more seasons left considering his age and the projectile of his career in the NFL.

There were no "throw me the damn ball" moments in Philadelphia's locker room.

"You know me better than that", said Guerrero. "These guys are unselfish players". When the Federal Bureau of Investigation did catch up with Ortega, they also found a Brady-worn jersey from Super Bowl XLIX, when the Patriots beat the Seahawks.

But the NFC Champion Birds will gladly put those "dog" masks on again because they believe that they have the New England Patriots exactly where they want them.
