There was Nick Foles, the week of the Super Bowl, sharing stories about how he contemplated quitting playing football at one point because he had nearly lost faith in himself.

As a reporter for the NFL Network covering the Philadelphia Eagles, I spent much of the week leading up to Super Bowl LII listening to Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles answer hundreds of questions.

The 29-year-old had been a third-round draft pick of the Eagles in 2012 and, at one point, had been their starter. But a six-year NFL journey saw him traded from the Eagles, cut by the Rams and re-signed by Philadelphia as a backup quarterback in 2017.
