Players Thrilled With Time At Pro Bowl

HONOLULU -- Two of them played for the winning Team Rice, and two played for Team Sanders. In the end, though, all four Eagles who participated in the Pro Bowl week and in Sunday's unconferenced Pro Bowl had plenty of good things to say about the Pro Bowl experience.

While quarterback Nick Foles won the Offensive MVP award and wide receiver DeSean Jackson opened the game's scoring with a spectacular end-zone catch, all four played and saw a substantial amount of time.

How much did they enjoy the Pro Bowl experience? Here is what they had to say after the game ...

  • Evan Mathis, OG: "It was really fun. It was a much more competitive game than it had been in the past, from what I understand. It went right down to the end of the game, so the fans really enjoyed and so did we. I enjoyed it. The whole week went the way I thought it would go and we won the game, so that's good. No complaints."
  • LeSean McCoy, RB: "It was cool. We had a lot of fun. Too many mistakes out there, but we won and that's what everybody wanted on our team. It was way more intense than usual. That's cool. And the guys played smart, which was the important thing. Now I'm going to hang out with my son and then when I get home get back to work and dominate next season."
  • Nick Foles, QB: "Winning the MVP isn't what it's all about for me. It was nice and it was a blessing. but I had a chance to say hello to some friends and to meet some other guys. I really enjoyed the time I had here. I think every player would enjoy the time here with so many great players and coaches."
  • DeSean Jackson, WR: "That touchdown catch, man, I just went up after the ball and came down with it. It was a great feeling to catch the ball and make a big play for our team. That's what I wanted to do. I wanted to play with energy and do everything I could to help our team win. It was a great week. I always love being part of the Pro Bowl, no matter where I am."
