coverage. They were pure receiver artistry.

finally took the lead at 32-31.

Not to mention the horse track.
Seadonut to place: fascinating. Super Bowl: "Like the world stopped on its axis. Omg, the Super
Bowl. Fucking morons."
I agree with your assessment of the game, but one thing that was blaringly "funny" throughout
the game that puts everything else in the background.
Foles was never even inconvenienced, never mind "pressured" once in a while; and light years away
from anything resembling roughed-up even once. How can that happen against the best team in
football? It can't.
Now, okay, the answer would "have" to be: the Eagles had an offensive line with superpowers. I
didn't hear Al Michael's or his weasel mention how the line was "making all the difference" or
praise-similar, even once.
Al Michael's weasel was saying at the beginning of the game how Foles wasn't nervous as the Patriots
thought he might be (that's why the Patriots chose to kick the ball upon winning the toss, and also
they would (the Patriots) get the ball after the half). Uh, ya, who would be nervous with being left
alone in the pocket like that on every play (any one of the cheerleaders could have managed those 80
If the offensive line was so good, that's practically all they'd be talking about; they'd be down to
telling the viewers what kind of SUV's they all owned, etc, by the end of the game.
I haven't missed a game all year, and there hasn't been a game where an opponent has come anywhere
near the pure ease with which the Eagles moved the chains, time after time; and Foles always had all
the time in the world to complete a pass.
The Eagles punter was one rested mofo.
Also, the Eagles got more than a break on both "disputed" touchdowns, and Gostkowsky missed a FG and
a PA (=4pts.).
It really did look "bagged."
