Without a doubt, the most iconic play of the game took place in the second quarter when the Birds ran the “Philly Special”. Watch how the call went down:
I love this so much. Foles asks to run the trick play, Pederson doesn’t hesitate for a second and agrees. Total trust in his players. The trust shows on the field every week pic.twitter.com/jyYcmfh1NS— Geoff Schwartz (@geoffschwartz) February 6, 2018
Foles approaches Pederson with the idea, and within a half second, Doug says “let’s run it”.
The internet has lost its collective mind over this play.
In all seriousness, this play will go down as one of the most iconic in NFL history. Eagles fans can take solace in the fact that Doug Pederson should be around for a long time.
If you have the cajones to call that play on fourth and one, you deserve your job.
