Not at the moment, however.
It provides some hope to the Eagles heading into the February 3 title game against five-time Super Bowl victor Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. "Ain't nothing for us to talk about", Blount said (per PhiladelphiaEagles.com). "It just is what it is".
In case you haven't been paying attention or just need a refresher, here's a look at 15 moments which shaped the respective 2017 seasons of the Eagles and Patriots. The Patriots were forced to punt 8 times, and 5 of those ended up inside the 20-yard line.
"When I left, I knew certainly that New England could be in the situation [in the Super Bowl], and I'd have to live with that if I wasn't", he said. We've got the same goal in mind. He won't be traveling to Minnesota for the game - because he doesn't play for the Patriots - and will not have to be subject to the state income tax rate of 9.85%. The players, along with the fans, took that to heart on Sunday as they proved that even without their starting quarterback, Carson Wentz, they are still a great team; they beat the Vikings handily, 38-7.
Eagles fans are now in the midst of planning out their trips to Minneapolis to see their favorite team attempt to bring home its first ever Lombardi Trophy at Super Bowl 52. And it's not a discourse on the Spygate and Deflategate reputations of Patriots head coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady.

Now in his second season with the Eagles, he led the team with 19 special teams tackles this season and was named an alternate for the Pro Bowl. "We love you. Patriots out!" he shouted to raucous cheers. "It has nothing to do with history, one way or the other". Coach Belichick is more strict. He's not as bad a guy as everybody thinks.
Of course, the biggest obstacle to the Eagles winning their first Super Bowl title will be quarterback Tom Brady and the Patriots. Trent Dilfer then stepped in for Tony Banks midway through the 2000 season for Baltimore, lost his first start and then won 11 in a row behind a dominant defense.
The Minnesota Super Bowl Host Committee created its own squad to help spread "Minnesota Nice" as the locals call it.
March 10: Patriots trade for Brandin Cooks - The flashy young receiver went over 1,000 yards with seven touchdown grabs, coming in handy particularly when the team was dealt a blow in August.
However, there is something about the big stage of the playoffs that makes Amendola flip an internal switch, turning him into one of the most reliable and consistent players on the team.
"I'm not going to get into all that", Long said. "And I was like, 'I've got to get ahold of somebody and tell them I want to keep playing, and I've still got a lot in the tank'". He also converted the most important play of the game: a two-point conversion to tie the game with little time on the clock in the fourth quarter. "Ain't no friends, ain't no homies". It ain't no hard feelings.
