Here are some thoughts about the telecast of the Eagles’ thrilling victory over Minnesota to advance to the Super Bowl.
Best celebrities – Mike Trout, Charles Barkley, Bradley Cooper
Best non-celebrity – The 99-year-old fan in the owner’s box
Doing the Dougie – Just as the announcers were singing the praises of Doug Pederson’s play-calling, the Eagles pulled off the flea flicker.
Instant Replay – Loved the slo-mo instant replay of Zack Ertz smiling after one of his many big plays.
Blount Talk – Great shot of Eagles running back coach Duce Staley congratulating LeGarrette Blount after his touchdown.
We Are Family – Three generations of the Long family – Howie, Chris, and new media darling Jaylon Long
Fox promo machine – The Resident, 911, Baskets
Movie Trailers – Deathwish, Tomb Raider
Basket Case – How about the play when Fletcher Cox literally threw Case Keenum to the ground like a rag doll?
Unsung hero – Is it a coincidence that Nick Foles has been playing better with Carson Wentz by his side on the sideline the last two weeks?
Everything is coming up Roseman – Eagles’ GM Howie Roseman got plenty of love from the announcers. Chip who?
Worst glasses – Mike Zimmer
The Yikes – After the pick-6 by Patrick Robinson, the Vikings were done.
The Magic 8 Ball – The Phillies won in 2008, can the Eagles win in 2018?
Super Bowl bound!
