I wish I was going to be wearing an Eagles uniform in Miami and not just an Eagles helmet. As a Pro Bowl alternate behind Brett Favre, Drew Brees, and Aaron Rodgers, I was made aware - although unofficially - I’m able to go since either Brett or Drew will be playing the following week in the Super Bowl. I’d gladly trade places with that guy.
I’m excited about playing in the Pro Bowl at the end of the month. I enjoyed the game in Hawaii each time I was fortunate to go. We have a nice representation of Eagles there and I look forward to being with my Philadelphia teammates. I like the camaraderie with many guys from around the league and the many events that the NFL puts on. Personally, I’d like to see how having the game a week before the Super Bowl and in the same city affects the game. I was a fan of the way it used to be.
Following the game I’ll stay in Miami for a few days and do some work at Super Bowl. After that, I’ll take a short break before getting ready for the 2010 season.
I know there is a lot of talk in Philadelphia about my future but please know one thing - when I came to Philadelphia it was to win a championship for the Eagles. Given the opportunity, I’d like to finish the job.
