I think wasting a time out here is so stupid. Just make a choice and go with it Philly. You might need that TO later. Desperately.

Eagles burn the TO. They have to go for it now, don't they?


What the hell?

Straight up coaching malpractice to use a timeout there when a TD puts you behind with little time left.

Pederson just shat himself there. The only way you consider going for that 4th down is in a 38-36 game or something of the sort. Not when your defense has played well all game.

Drew Brees is 72-47 with a 102.6 QB rating indoors in his career.
He's 65-56 with a 90.9 outdoors.
Which is why I mentioned the gameplan would be less focused on the passing game? I think their two-headed rushing attack is potent enough to beat a really limited Philadelphia offense, even in poor weather conditions, in an ugly game of more poor execution than good defense.

Game in hands of Eagles defense now. That's where they would want it. Keep them out of end zone and host NFC Championship.

Plus, if you're even thinking about being a little aggressive why does your QB throw short of the sticks on third down? Why not go for it with a fade or something to the end zone on third down?

If you want a great trip, open some booze, and play the OST from The Rock while watching curling.

I’m not even a little bit kidding.
I want to know the story on what led to this discovery.

I think I would have had Foles try to bootleg for a 1st down rather than that pass he threw.
