Time To Bring The Road Warrior Mentality Home

Head coach Andy Reid preached to his team this week that they need to take the same aggressive mentality that they've played with on the road and bring it to Lincoln Financial Field.

The Eagles are 3-0 on the road, but 0-2 at home. Of course, the starting quarterback was injured in each of the two home contests.

"We have to play like we're on the road every day. Honestly, we have to go to whatever stadium we're in and act like we're on the road," linebacker Moise Fokou said. "We have the attitude that we're road warriors right now. We just have to take that into the Linc."

The Eagles were within a score in each of their two home losses - to the Packers and the Redskins, respectively. In both games, the Eagles had the ball with the chance to tie or win late in the fourth quarter. This Sunday, the Eagles host the 4-1 Atlanta Falcons, who are tied with the Bears for the NFC's best record.

"We definitely get to see where we're at. We're going against a tough team with a good defense, good offense, run game, all of that good stuff," cornerback Asante Samuel said. "You have to win at home. That's the most important thing in the league. You have to be able to win at home."

Most important of all, the team wants to give its fans something to cheer about.

"I know our fans would like to see a win too because of the support we get here," wide receiver DeSean Jackson said. "We just have to put it together."
