Nick Foles still isn't sweating Tom Brady's post-Super Bowl handshake snub
Matt Stone | Boston Herald
The New England Patriots will once again face off with the Philadelphia Eagles tonight at Gillette Stadium – this time, on a much smaller scale.
The matchup is sure to bring back some memories of the Eagles’ Super Bowl LII victory over the Patriots back in February - namely after the game when Tom Brady did not meet quarterback Nick Foles on the field for the traditional handshake.
But Foles says he isn’t sweating the snub. Even though the Eagles’ quarterback says he hasn’t heard from Brady since the big game, Foles knows “it will happen when it happens” and that he has “all the respect in the world for him.”
“I think everyone’s making a really big deal out of this and it’s not a big deal at all,” Foles said. “I’ve already talked to him before, he’s a guy I’ve always looked up to. You’ve got to admire someone who is probably the greatest ever and still going strong. I mean, even at his age he seems to get better and better. I’ve already had a conversation with him before when we practiced, so if we have one in the future, we’ll have one and it will be cool.”
So, it seems as if there’s no bad blood there, but the two quarterbacks’ moves are sure to be closely observed when the Patriots and the Eagles meet tonight for Week 2 of preseason action.
