Every Eagles player gets to take home a Mike Trout bobblehead

Every Eagles player gets to take home a Mike Trout bobblehead

ANAHEIM, Calif. — The weather is gorgeous this week in Southern California, but the Eagles won't get too much time to enjoy it. They are on a business trip. 

At least they all got a souvenir. 

When the Eagles got into the home clubhouse at Angel Stadium, there was a present in each locker stall: a Mike Trout bobblehead. 

The bobblehead is from Trout's MVP 2016 season. He's sliding into a base face-first and the bottom lists his statistics from the season. 

Nigel Bradham, who is using Trout's locker stall for the week, showed off his new present to an NBC Sports Philadelphia camera. 

"I'll pull it out because he let me rent his spot out," Bradham said, as he slid the styrofoam protective wrapper out of the box and then Trout from the styrofoam. "He's sliding into home plate. His head doesn't bobble that much. You gotta get it pretty good." 

Trout, the Millville, New Jersey, native, has become friends with Carson Wentz and other Eagles. Trout is a huge Eagles fans and is in the stands for most home games. 

Wentz said he had been texting Trout, but the slugger is home in New Jersey "hunting it up." 

The real Trout isn't in Southern California this week, but at least every Eagle will get to take home a mini one. 

"We got a Mike Trout bobblehead," Lane Johnson said, looking at the box. "That's pretty nice. I'll have to put that up in the house somewhere."

Watch: Chris Long gets heated with Rams fan in first row

Reporters at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum pointed out the tremendous showing of Philadelphia Eagles fans on Sunday afternoon, with most saying their representation among Rams fans being guestimated at about 50-50.

So when Brandon Graham scored on a 16-yard fumble return for a touchdown as time expired, the Eagles defense attempted to do a Lambeau Leap-style celebration because there were so many Eagles fans in the front row.

Naturally, the few Rams fans nearby were understandably not down with it. NBC Sports Philadelphia's camera's captured footage of one Rams fan attempting to push Eagles defensive end Chris Long down.

Long is then seen having heated words with said fan. You may remember Long from earlier in the game when he forced Jared Goff to fumble in a game-changing play. I'd say Long likely won this battle of words.

The Eagles beat the Rams by a final of 43-35. You can watch the encounter below.

Shady McCoy calls Nick Foles a 'true baller'

Eagles fans were incredibly down Sunday night with the reports that MVP-candidate Carson Wentz could be lost for the season.

Nick Foles stepped out of the backup role and helped the Birds to a victory that clinched the NFC East championship.

Despite Foles stepping in to help the Eagles earn the win, the Philly fanbase is not sold on the former starter being able to fill Wentz's shoes.

One guy who does vouch for Foles, however, is his former teammate and perhaps the greatest running back in Eagles history, Shady McCoy.

"I played with nick he is a true baller [sic]," LeSean tweeted.

This isn't the first time McCoy has stated support of Foles. Following the 2015 season, McCoy vouched for Foles as a team leader.

"I like Nick. The person and player that everybody thought he was, he is," McCoy said. "There were a lot of injuries this year, Nick, obviously got injured. He gets all of the blame and he shouldn't. I think Nick's a good quarterback. He's the leader of our team. Just things didn't work out for him this year due to injury, but we've got his back. As a team, we didn't play well enough to win and to get into the playoffs."

McCoy obviously went on to play for the Bills and Foles departed the Eagles for the big green of the Rams.

Strange that Foles is back in Philly with a chance to lead the Eagles to a Super Bowl.

McCoy also offered congrats to his old team.
