It wasn’t the ending we had all hoped for, but it was still a great postseason push after the Eagles had already been counted out. As reigning Super Bowl Champions, they were at least able to earn a spot in Wild Card Weekend and make a push into the Divisional Round, and didn’t look nearly as bad as they did back in November in New Orleans.
Regardless of how it ended, the brotherhood that’s developed in the locker room isn’t going to disintegrate because of a loss, and if anything, could bring even more motivation heading into the offseason.
Here’s a look at some of the player reactions to the end of their 2018 season, and their commitment to come back even stronger in 2019.
Love this team to death #FlyEaglesFly— Carson Wentz (@cj_wentz) January 14, 2019

Amidst all the doubt and hate we just kept fighting and hopefully represented you well! #flyEaglesfly pic.twitter.com/gaePo0QC9u— Malcolm Jenkins (@MalcolmJenkins) January 14, 2019

We’ll be back next year, just watch .I couldn’t be more proud of my teammates for the way they’ve fought all season through adversity. This has been an incredible journey.The worse part about the end of each season is knowing that the next season will be different. #FLYEAGLESFLY— Donnel Pumphrey Jr. (@Pumphrey6K) January 14, 2019
