    Fun little collection of play calls of the Nick Foles TD reception from various locals.

    My take on the officiating

    I thought both of the touchdown calls were the correct call.

    - The first one he catches the ball, gets one foot down, then he gets the other foot down, THEN he bobbles the ball slightly.

    - The second one was explained on the air.

    i happen to like Foles and was happy to see him get a ring. I can't imagine him leaving Philli, but bet he gets some offers.... the only thing i don't like about Foles is how long he holds on to the ball ... if he does go somewhere else, they would have to have a very good offensive line to protect him and give him time or he would struggle i think. Awesome that the Eagles got their ring, what was better was to see the Patriots lose.

    I was reading through this thread...didn't see that Brady didn't shake hands or anything ... kind of a sore loser ..... i remember before the game he said they knew exactly what to expect from the Eagles... haha apparently they didn't or they wouldn't have let them put up so many points.

    Great game though ...... my only complaint is that I can't stand Chris and Al... felt like muting them half the time.... they both irritate me. If only Romo could have been in the booth ... so much prefer that he doesn't seem to be going for or against any one team the whole time he announces.
    And he got shredded for not shaking hands on Good Morning Football.

    At first Peter Schrager said he was giving him the benefit of the doubt but his co-hosts said why? Why does he deserve the benefit of the doubt? We call everyone else out? Cam Newton got blasted, Brady's been to the SB many times. He knows the etiquette. He does not deserve any benefit of the doubt.

    I had a Pats fan tell me before the game that they usually win close games and that they were gonna win in a blowout and deserved a blowout win.

    I said why do you DESERVE a blowout? He said because we just do. We've never had one. I said you DESERVE nothing. You earn it. Or are you talking about the gifts you get from the refs that usually swing the game in your favor. Is that what you think you DESERVE?

    I walked away.

    J....I missed that....Brady not shaking hands. If so he is the biggest baby of all time. He is a diva, and needs to be loved. And after all his success he does not stop to show respect to Foles and all the other good Eagles...what a baby!! It's no wonder so many of us do not like him or his grumpy boss!!

    Contrast that with Pederson telling his players after the game that they played a great team and when interviewed, they are to be complimentary. Pure class.

    It's not the first time he's done that.

    Without a doubt. What a great story.
    After Carson Wentz was injured at L.A. and put on IR, Foles wasn't that impressive. In the last game of the season, against the Cowboys, he played so badly he was benched, and Nate Sudfeld had a better performance.

    In the Wild Card Round, the Falcons travelled to the West Coast and decisively defeated the Rams. They looked like a legitimate threat to return to the Super Bowl. They lost in Philly to the Eagles who overcame two giveaways in a weird game in which their rookie PK missed an XPA, but connected on three FGA including a 53 yarder.

    In the NFCCG, Philly dominated the Vikings and routed them 38-7 while the Pats had to eke out a win over the Jags in the AFCCG by coming back in the 4th quarter to score with 2:56 left.

    Who would have thought that the Eagles, with their backup QB, would defeat NE in a shootout by outscoring the Pats 41-33, a game in which Brady passed for 500 yards and three TDs?

    The New England Patriots were outcoached and outplayed. Nice work, Philly. Is the party still going on? I bet it is.

    Bl, time to turn that frown upside down!

    Malcolm Butler played only one ST snap and didn't play a single defensive snap yet the deserving Patriots' defense was gashed time and again. How about try some other personnel to see if that help.... nah, we "made the decisions that give us the best chance to win." Un-hunh. Butler, no doubt, has raised a few glasses in BB's honor.

    Then the delicious part, BB and Brady were defeated by the up and coming, former 1st round (2nd overall) from North Dakota... oh, wait, that's right... Nick Foles the backup who bounced around the league the past number of seasons, almost quitting at one time - that Nick Foles, the now SB MVP Nick Foles, whom Belichick and Patricia canonized last night as St. Nick.

    Belichick: On to retirement!



    Still though, it was a great game, right up there with the '99 Rams / Titans in SB 34 - both teams hanging in there, down to the wire. But this time the team that should have won did.

    I don't understand why Brady did that. He had an amazing game. 505 yards, 3TDs, 0 INTs. I get he's disappointed his team lost. I get that he hates losing. I get that it might have been his last SB, particularly with McD and MP leaving, and possibly also BB calling it a day. But Foles and the Eagles deserved better.

    I recall Brady and BB saluting Peyton after we beat them in the AFCCG in 2015. Congratulating Manning and ignoring Foles suggests the Pats thought the Eagles and their "reserve" QB to be beneath them. Your conversation with Pats' fans suggests the same. That's really dispiriting.

    Really an awesome game and I'm glad the refs didn't "fix" it. Congrats to the Eagles. I saw nothing wrong with the two TD calls, especially the second. How many steps does a receiver have to take after the catch before he's a runner? Holy smokes. And not a whiff of a mention of DPI on that interception? I mean, just because you're looking back for the ball it doesn't mean you hold the receiver's arm down.
