As Tim and I wondered around aimlessly in Arlington, Texas at 2 a.m. last year, we just wanted to find our rental car. It was hours after the Eagles topped the Cowboys in overtime in the beginning of November, and only lamp posts lit the dark, empty streets.

After a random man pulled up in a silver Chevy, rolled down his front passenger window and yelled at us (“I’m Uber, get in!”), we realized our car had probably been towed.

I have a lot of faith in them. Obviously I love Evan, I wish he was here, but at the same time we’re focused on the guys that are here.

“At the beginning of the offseason guys would talk about it, but now that the grind is going ,and we’re running our butts off each and every day. We’re focused on the guys that are out here.” Read more »
