What might have been is drowned out by whys.

What does this mean for the Eagles quarterback's recovery?

Christian players openly expressing their faith is nothing new in the NFL: Reggie White, Kurt Warner, Tim Tebow, Ray Lewis and Russell Wilson among many others. So many opinions on Pederson as head coach have changed this season that now the question is whether or not Pederson has already eclipsed the legacy of his mentor, Andy Reid. But backup quarterback Nick Foles is also a "brother in Christ" and one of the leaders in a locker room filled with guys who have formed a strong bond due to their faith. The conference championship was a highlight video of guys that weren't in Philadelphia previous year and weren't highly sought after by other teams. Despite the Eagles experiencing much success without him, Wentz is hoping to help out in any fashion possible in hopes of the franchise's securing its first Super Bowl win, according to Tiffany Blackmon of The NFL Network. "Obviously, it looks different for me, but with team still playing now, I couldn't be happier".

Wentz threw just seven interceptions in those 13 games, and had a quarterback rating of 101.9, which was fourth best in the National Football League at the time.

The Chiefs were up 21-3, and the Eagles led 24-7 (after a hurry-up drive starting with 30 seconds left in the half led to a field goal).

In typical Eagles fashion, after injuring himself, Wentz would stand in the pocket and deliver a touchdown pass.

Trouble was rumbling, but it could have been offset or even snuffed out with an offensive answer.

The Eagles insist they never wavered even after Wentz was lost for the season.

The Chiefs were given a reprieve, though, taking over at the Tennessee 28 after a muffed punt. Physically, of course, he has a long road of grueling rehabilitation ahead of him.

However, there is no guarantee Wentz will even be ready to take the field by then. He played in the Eagles' first 13 games, and led the team to an 11-2 record. "I'm going to push and do everything I can to be ready". "Injuries happen. Injuries aren't going to change me".

Now that the streets have been swept and all the police horses are safely back in their stables, the Eagles have turned their focus from the giddy joy of simply getting into the Super Bowl to the real business of actually winning the damn thing. Seeing this team battle through these playoffs, battle all season long through adversity, injury after injury - I wasn't the only one; a lot of guys went down - just seeing the resiliency of this team, it's just such a tight brotherhood. He is coming off a possibly career-defining outing against the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship Game where he completed 26 of 33 passes for 352 yards with three touchdowns while holding a 141.4 passer rating.

Any athlete, any person, could learn something from his perspective. In fact, he did just enough late in the game to get the Eagles the home-field advantage in the playoffs.

"Just the way Carson has handeled everything has been awesome", Foles said Wednesday. "As a rookie past year coming in, you always hear about the locker room and how dysfunctional it can be and people playing for money and this and that, but when I got here, everyone was so supportive and I knew it was something special". You just want to make sure you've done everything you can to prepare yourself to be successful and let all the outside stuff, all the distractions, let them go. Because that's the lovely thing. They found it within themselves to be able to pull it together and continue.

Over the last few weeks, Wentz has progressed from walking with two crutches, to one crutch and most recently used a cane to go out to midfield for the coin toss before their two playoff games.
