Trey Burton pulled off one of the most unbelievable plays in Super Bowl history with the Eagles in Super Bowl 52. 

The "Philly Special" featured Burton, who played some quarterback in college at Florida, throwing a touchdown pass to Eagles quarterback Nick Foles. The play has been used in college football and the NFL on numerous occasions since, including Sunday by the Bears against the Giants.

However, Burton did not feel comfortable running the play this time around.

“When they put it up on the board (in practice), I got crazy anxiety,” Burton said. “I was kind of freaking out a bit because a ton of unbelievable memories come back to mind from the Super Bowl. … I just remember going out and not really saying much, going out to practice and trying to do it. I just couldn’t. 

"Physically, there was some type of block, wasn't letting me do it. I told [Bears head coach Matt Nagy] 'Hey coach, I'm having crazy anxiety.' I couldn't sleep that night thinking about it.

"There were so many really good memories, but I'm not there anymore," he said. "I'm on a different team doing something different. I just didn't feel comfortable."

Kudos to Burton for both speaking up to Nagy about his anxiety and sharing it with the public, which is not the easiest thing to do. In the end, the Bears pulled off the play anyhow, with Tarik Cohen finding Anthony Miller in the end zone to force overtime.


The Giants won in overtime, but the "Chicago Special" was still cool, nonetheless.
