Eagles' Brent Celek doesn't care about anything but winning

Despite a huge game Sunday, the Eagles veteran tight end was pretty upset with the team's loss.

Brent Celek isn't really a flashy guy.

Typically relegated to the second tight end spot, behind the up and comingZach Ertz, Celek has been used sparingly in Chip Kelly's offense and has been utilized more as a blocker than a pass-catcher.

But Sam Bradford (and later Mark Sanchez) saw something Sunday in the Eagles 20-19 upset loss to the Dolphins.

Bradford hookedup with Celek early and often. By the 12:51 mark in the second quarter, Celek had three catches for 120 yards on receptions of 60, 40 and 20 yards respectively.

By game's end he accumulated 134 yards (in contrast to just 71yards on seven catches through eight entire games), leading the Eagles.

"Honestly it doesn't matter," Celek said of his impressive stats."I am going to go home and I won't be happy about this. This is team game. If we don't win nothing else matters. It doesn't."

The Eagles several times had opportunities to squeak out with a win, after blowing a 13-point lead. But each of those times something stopped the Birds in their tracks.

"All these games we have lost, it's just us beating ourselves," the tight end, who combined with Ertz to gain 202 of Philly's 353 yards through the air,said."Until we get ourselves fixed, nothing else matters."
