Mike Pereira: Eagles were in illegal formation on Philly Special

Mike Pereira: Eagles were in illegal formation on Philly Special

The Hollywood star, who hails from Austin, Texas like the 29-year-old National Football League player, wrote: 'From one local to another, congratulations Nick Foles'.

The Eagles were only able to muster a field goal out of the good field position, however, leaving the door open for Tom Brady to mount another last minute drive.

On Friday, Eagles right tackle Lane Johnson blasted the "Patriot Way" during an interview on Barstool Sports' "Pardon My Take" podcast, claiming there is no joy that comes with playing in New England.

What makes this play particularly fascinating from a chess-match perspective is just how long the Eagles allowed it to marinate.

It was a motion the Eagles used in Week 2 against the Chiefs, this time involving Darren Sproles, which the Eagles coaches showed to King on film.

If the Eagles were penalized for an illegal formation, they would have received a five-yard penalty and been pushed back to the 6-yard line.

Obviously, it took a serious group of men to overcome the loss of MVP candidate Carson Wentz and win it all behind Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles.

"One time it went to Sproles". "We hit three different areas of the field with the same motion". There were so many times that we would speak out in meetings, the entire team would erupt out in laughter, we're playing music on the team plane.

Bruschi pushed back at the idea that New England's players didn't have fun while chasing the Lombardi Trophy.

"We're like, yeah, they could be having a problem here", Reich said.

"Here's the problem: The game is over". The Eagles did not line up correctly - according to Pereira - so the play shouldn't have counted. Similar to every Super Bowl the Patriots have played in, the game came down to the wire, the last play and the final whistle. Considering how much the refs came under fire for the poorly-officiated AFC Championship Game and Wild Card Round between Tennessee and Kansas City, Gene Steratore and his crew did a great job of letting the teams play. "This play is a result of what we did all season, and what the coaches researched, taking different things from different plays". Finally, the defense made a play.

You may have heard of this story in the days after the Super Bowl, but if you have not, then I thought this might be of interest to many readers here, given that there is a certain level of obsession with the New England Patriots as it is.
