LeGarrette Blount: Eagles Super Bowl Ring better than TWO Patriots Rings
In a single season, LeGarrette Blount cemented himself in Eagles history.
In 2017, Blount rushed for 776 yards and two touchdowns. He added 130 yards and three touchdowns in the playoffs which led the running back committee to a beautiful Super Bowl LII win against the Patriots 41-33.
As we know, that was the Eagles first ring in franchise history. For Blount, it was his third ring of his 10-year professional career. He won two with the Patriots in 2014 and 2016.
Yesterday, the retired running back hopped on Good Morning Football to talk post-NFL life and to revisit his career.
Here’s what he had to say about those three Super Bowl rings:
“I would say the Eagles, man. Because originally I had just won a Super Bowl with a team that I felt had a lot of love for me, and unfortunately it didn’t work out on the contractual part, so when I went to Philly I – I’ve always had a chip on my shoulder my entire career, but I went over to Philly and I played against [the Patriots], I had a good game, I scored a touchdown, and I’m telling [Patriots] dudes, ‘Hey man, let me get 100 yards!’ So that was by far – well not by far, but it was definitely my favorite. It was bittersweet, but more sweet than bitter because it was New England. It was a really, really, really fun Super Bowl. I enjoyed every moment of that season.”
A Chip on his shoulder and the love from Philly fans. Stop me if you heard those sentiments before across the city of Philadelphia.
It was just one year, Blount turned himself into a Philadelphia legend. We are forever grateful.
