Billboards featuring Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles are appearing in the city again to celebrate the team’s playoff run, writes Jacob Bogage for The Washington Post.
The billboards first appeared a year ago, when Foles led the Eagles to their first Super Bowl championship after starting quarterback Carson Wentz got injured. Now, Dave Peacock, the general manager of Lamar Advertising, has brought back his roadside good luck charms.
Peacock is beaming pro-Eagles messages on billboards at 30 locations throughout the Philadelphia area, including one of the most popular, “St. Nick always delivers!”
The Eagles were in a dire situation this season, when Foles again replaced the injured Wentz. They needed to win their final three games and receive some additional help from other teams to clinch a playoff berth.
Foles has again delivered, as the Birds beat the Chicago Bears, 16-15, last Sunday and will take on the New Orleans Saints this Sunday.
Now, Peacock will keep posting billboards for as long as the Eagles keep winning.
“It’s déjà vu all over again,” he said. “There’s some magic in there somehow.”
