Ertz talks about the strong and valuable bond between the current teammates on the Eagles. He mentions last year when Carson Wentz asked him how he was doing during a rough time. Wentz emotionally picked Ertz up by telling him he was going to be fine. This team genuinely seems to care about each other which can be powerful in moments of doubt, high pressure, injury, and failure. In those moments of doubt, these players probably dig a little deeper because they want to succeed, not only for themself, but for the guys around them. This bond doesn't just exist between players. Based on press conferences, interviews, and post-win speeches it seems that head coach, Doug Pederson cares about his players both as performers and as people. This care contains an apparent mutual respect between players and coach. When a team has cohesion, love for each other, and mutual respect... Well, we will see Super Bowl Sunday.
*If you're interested in this concept, apply it to your own professional life. Think about how much the level of fun impacted your experience, motivation, anxiety, endurance, and overall performance. Those job we hated probably received the minimum effort and poor performance whereas fun jobs earned maximum effort and best performance.
