Post-Game Quotes: Eagles Locker Room

Eagles WR Riley Cooper

On the key to the chemistry between he and Nick [Foles]:

COOPER: "We have a great chemistry, for sure, but he spreads the ball around. He has confidence in our offense and all of our guys, and when you spread the ball around and use the whole field the defense has to cover everyone. It opens things up, and he [Nick Foles] played remarkable."

On what it feels like to be on the other side of history; catching three of the seven touchdowns passes:

COOPER:"He [Nick Foles] had an unreal game. I'm extremely proud of him. He's a great friend of mine; a great teammate, and I'm proud of him."

On how Foles looked leading up to this week:

COOPER:"He looked great. He has so much confidence, and that's something you need in a quarterback. So he handled it great; he's a real winner."

On the keys to success today:

COOPER:"I don't know. I was just out there playing my game; playing for the ball…and the quarterback helped. The quarterback put the ball right where it needed to be and I give all the credit to him."

On how much more fun it is when you're playing this way:

COOPER:"It's definitely fun. When you feel like you're contributing, that's the biggest thing. I don't want to get 1,000 yards every game. I don't want multiple touchdowns or touchdowns every game. I just want to contribute."

Eagles SS Nate Allen

On what went well for the Eagles today that allowed you to get the win:

ALLEN: "I just thought that we executed well today. Guys made plays when we needed to and got off the field on some big third downs. Yeah, main thing is we executed well and played well as a defense."

On how important was it just to get a win:

ALLEN:"It was big. It was big, and you get back on the winning side of things and everybody's confidence is high right now. It's a good feeling going into Green Bay next week."

On Nick Foles today:

ALLEN: "Big day for Nick. Guy works hard, does everything right, on and off the field. Couldn't be happier for somebody to have a great day like that. He's a heck of a quarterback and it showed today."

Eagles TE Brent Celek

On Nick Foles' performance today:

CELEK: "He played unbelievable. I think the stats speak for themselves. He was great; we knew he has it in him."

On how big it is for him to respond that way after the Dallas game:

CELEK:"When you play football long enough, you're going to have some bad games here and there, but he responded and he played really well. He's a great quarterback. He's always going to be a great quarterback; that's just who he is."

On if this is the best quarterback performance you've ever been a part of:

CELEK:"Yeah. That's one of the best performances I've ever seen, for sure."

On what's it like to be on the field when a guy is that locked-in:

CELEK: "It's fun. You're putting up points; you're winning. But you've still got your job to do. It's easy to talk about afterwards, but during the game you've got to keep going, keep going, keep going."

On how important it was it just to get a win:

CELEK: "It was important. We needed that win. Listen, we've got to take it week-by-week and keep going through. We've got a tough week next week against Green Bay."

Eagles TE Zach Ertz

On how you were able to get involved in the passing game:

ERTZ: "Fortunately, today we were in a lot of two tight ends. I think the offense did very well with that."

On how jacked up you were to play here, being from the area:

ERTZ: "It was a lot of fun. This is the first time I've been back in the Bay since I left for camp at the end of July, so it was a lot of fun to be out there. I've got a lot of family waiting for me right now that I'm going to go see."

On if he imagined getting a touchdown:

ERTZ: "I was hoping. Every game I kind of hope, but scoring here was really special." 

Eagles RB LeSean McCoy

* *

On catching the pass from Nick Foles that tied the NFL record:

McCOY: "Well, I would definitely say that he [Nick Foles] has it in him. Just the way he prepares for these games; he comes out there ready to dominate, and we showed that today…We looked good, and if we play like this we can do this every game."

On why the offense has not scored a touchdown in the last two games and then scores seven today:

McCOY: "I think we've just been focusing. All week long we've just been focusing and also trying to help out the defense; the defense really prepares and helps the team and we're just trying to help out the defense and the team. And that's what we did."

On what it feels like to be rolling like that on offense:

McCOY: "It feels good. Every drive out there we put some points up. We feel like no defense can stop us, so since we've been bottled up lately we've been trying to release everything. It's tough when you're not winning; it's tough when you're not putting points up, but we're not overly positive about this because we know we can put points up; we showed it the first six weeks."

On if it is important to not get too high after a game like this?

McCOY: "Nothing is perfect. I think a lot of the balls we got deep; the guys up top were in the box and didn't really expect it. We didn't need to run the ball as much, but we didn't put too much pressure on our offense."
