For Eagles fans, this clarification might be even better.
During Thursday night's 2018 season opener, when Nick Foles reeled in a pass almost identical to the iconic play from the 41-33 Super Bowl LII victory, just about everyone dubbed it Philly Special 2.0 (see story).
But Lane Johnson made sure to specify it was different.
“It was the same play the Patriots used. The one that Tom dropped.” — Lane Johnson to WIP on the Philly Special 2.0 #Eagles
While "Philly Philly" and "Philly Special" are awfully similar, there is a difference.
On Thursday night, Foles took the snap, whereas in Super Bowl LII, there was a bit more trickery as running back Corey Clement took the snap while Foles acted like he was calling an audible by stepping up to the line of scrimmage.
So, the Eagles are 1-0 in 2018 and Foles is 2 for 2 on his catching attempts.
The Eagles have been quite the disappointment this season, with the latest being their atrocious 37-31 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday in South Florida. And with disappointments come possible troll jobs?
As the clock wound down and fans became increasingly exasperated with the team, social media anger started to build and it looks like one fellow Philadelphia team may have added just an oh-so-subtle jab in there.
As the 37-31 score went final, the Flyers sent out quite the interesting reminder of their impressive record this November. It seems like they don’t want fans to forget that they are NOT part of the teams that have been disappointing this city.
Things have gotten wild over in the Eagles' world today, beginning with former Eagles cornerback Orlando Scandrick torching almost everyone on his old team on FS1’s “Undisputed” this morning (see story).
Then, Malcolm Jenkins clapped back at Scandrick in NSFW fashion to essentially dismiss the claims by Scandrick, to which Scandrick then responded on Colin Cowherd’s show that he essentially “wasn’t attacking anyone personally”(see story).
And so, after a morning of ping-ponging back and forth, we have the ultimate response, from the team itself.
The Eagles social media account offically weighed in in the most brilliant way. Actions speak louder than words, Scandrick, and you can't run from history.
