Foles asked for the Philly Special, Pederson said, 'Yeah, let's do it'

Foles asked for the Philly Special, Pederson said, 'Yeah, let's do it'

The legend of the Philly Special just got another chapter to it.

Thanks to the microphones of NFL Films, we now know it was Nick Foles who first called for it when walking over to Doug Pederson prior to the insanely gutsy fourth-down play call.

"Philly, Philly?" Nick says.

Pederson's face lights up.

"Yeah, let's do it," Doug responds.

I got goosebumps hearing it.

The rest is Eagles history.

We got a sample of the full show that will air on Inside the NFL tonight at 9:00 PM on Showtime. Never set a DVR so fast in my life.

The Eagles also shared a longer version of the play with added conversation. "I was feeling it," Foles said after.

If you want to read more about the gutsy play call, we wrote about it on Sunday.

"That's just something we've been working on, and Doug and I were talking," Foles said. "I was like, 'Let's just run it.' It was a good time, and the end was a little wider than I thought so I was like, 'I really need to sell like I'm not doing anything.' And it worked. Trey made an amazing throw, right on the money. I just looked it in and yeah, we've ripped it for a while, so I was excited to get to run it in the Super Bowl."

Look for this one on newstands near you:

Joel Embiid takes shot at Aron Baynes on Twitter

With the Sixers eliminated, Joel Embiid was asked at his end-of-the-season press conference if he had a prediction for which remaining team would win the NBA championship.

His response was short and simple.

"Nah," he said, "I don't care."

However, Embiid looks like he's still keeping some tabs on the NBA postseason.

And, watching from afar, he's apparently not too impressed with Aron Baynes.

If you recall, during the Eastern Conference semifinals series in which the Sixers fell to the Celtics in five games, Embiid and Baynes had their moments.

Lots of physicality. A few minor scuffles. And this monster dunk by Embiid.

That's probably what the Sixers' big man was referring to when he tweeted Monday night during Game 4 of the Cavaliers-Celtics series.

Could this play have prompted the tweet?

Baynes probably isn't focused on Embiid or Twitter right now in the heat of the Eastern Conference Finals, but maybe he'll be asked about the tweet during media availability sessions before the series goes to Game 5 Wednesday.

The 31-year-old from New Zealand, a role player not known for tons of offense but with a championship ring, can become an unrestricted free agent in the offseason. We'll have to see where he plays next season, but let's hope some matchups with Embiid are in the near future.

Eagles teammates expose Nelson Agholor's golf swing

Fortunately for Nelson Agholor, he doesn't make a living off his golf swing.

Instead, he gets paid to make plays on the football field, something he did plenty of during a career year last season, helping the Eagles win their first-ever Super Bowl title.

But that didn't prevent his teammates from ribbing him Monday.

Zach Ertz and Wendell Smallwood exposed their buddy by posting videos of Agholor golfing not so well (to put it nicely) on their Instagram stories, which you can watch here.

It clearly looks like Agholor is a beginner at the sport of golf. Give him credit for trying. Known for being one of the hardest workers in the Eagles' locker room, it wouldn't be surprising to see, with time, Agholor develop that golf swing.

But for now, he's going to draw some comparisons to Charles Barkley.
