Default Congrats eagles and heir fans!

Title pretty much says it. They played a great game and came up with a big play when they needed it.

My daughter (Age 7) was sad, and I explained that I was a bit sad too, but "our" team has won a lot, and we've been lucky to see that. And the Eagles haven't had a championship since before I was born, and while I didn't like seeing the Patriots lose, football teams lose sometimes. But both sides played a good game, and I'm also a bit happy for the Eagles.

As a former Hydraulic mechanic, I'll be interested in seeing how the oiling of the poles goes.

I am not even slightly happy for them, but they played an excellent game and were superbly coached.

The 1152 total yards on offense were the most in any game in NFL history. It certainly was entertaining.

Doug Pederson should have been named Coach Of The Year. The Eagles held it together when things didn't go right and made a few gutsy plays that kept New England at bay for the most part. However, they were helped by New England's notorious habit of starting slow in the first half.

I thought the game was a nail biter since the Patriots also had the habit of winning games in the last minute.

Also, why is there an avalanche of Foles RCs hitting eBay all at once?

I am an eagles fan but c'mon..

not sure how the Patriots defense is considered so bad and the patriots need to rethink everything when the eagles defense didnt cause 1 punt i dont think. Both defenses caused 1 turnover.

When you achieve a critical mass of offense, the defenses are like tecmo bowl defenses and the offense rules. Great calls on 4th down. If the eagles punt on that last 4th down the eagles 45 yard line , the eagles 'championshp defense' dont stop the patriots.

Lets just not get carried away with ourselves that the patriots need to retool the defense yet the eagles defense is great.

patriots lost a great WR in the first q......the patriots offense is good enough again for next year to say that team has not fallen off a cliff in terms of getting back to the SB again..

the patrots did have a 1 point lead late in the 4th q as well..........was a good game and back and forth.....is what it is..

Even though final stats wouldn't tell you it was the case, the Eagles defense is what secured the victory. The forced fumble ended any hope the Patriots had.

hahha..and what about giving up the lead late in the 4th q.

patriots did force an INT near the end zone..that stopped points..and that wasnt with 2 min left when the other team has to pass every time and they didnt have to forget the run..


all plays count...... forcing zero punts and only stopping 2 drives (one in obvious pass situation and other on a short fg miss ..doesnt mean they 'won' the game.

the eagles offense secured the victory

giving up 500 yards passing didnt secure squat...its the 40+ points the eagles put up that let the eagles get the one turnover....eventually patriots would of dropped the passes as well which could of credited to the eagles defense is the score got into the 60s....


Like i said you cant say the patriots need to retool their defense based on their superbowl performance and at the same time praise the great eagle defense for winning the SB..

Eagles having to go for it on own 45 on 4th and 2 with 6 mins left says a lot

All plays don't count when the game is winding down and you need to prevent the Patriots from scoring. Only those plays count if you're going to win the game.
