Rules expert says Philadelphia Eagles' trick play was illegal

"I just think that the "Patriot Way" is a fear-based organization", said Johnson.

Obviously, it took a serious group of men to overcome the loss of MVP candidate Carson Wentz and win it all behind Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles. Hell yes, they win.

Nick led the Eagles to their 41-33 win over the Patriots, the first time ever the team has won the Super Bowl. That's just the God honest truth.

"When they go to interviews, they act like f-king robots". We can be cordial for a little bit.

"So, if you think it's gonna be all fun to win another championship next year, you got it all wrong", Bruschi said. But what separates this Super Bowl loss from the previous two lies in the fact that the Patriots did not have a defensive meltdown or squander an opportunity to win the game. "But hey, it is what it is".

On Monday, former Patriots linebacker and three-time Super Bowl victor Tedy Brushci took exception to Johnson's remarks during an appearance on ESPN's "First Take". While on the team plane, Bruschi said that the Patriots were playing music. We've been trying to get in as much inventory as possible to keep the excitement going. "In the ones that I was there, I can not understand what he was saying there". The former linebacker said if you want to have a double-date with your coach, play with Tomlin or Pederson, but if you want to consistently win, you go play for Belichick.

"Here's the problem: The game is over".

Whatever the case may be, the Eagles emerged from Super Bowl LII as world champions, so clearly they were doing something right.

"This is the first time you've won one, and this is a sign when people just don't know how to regularly win football games". The thing that Bruschi is missing is the team knows how to increase the intensity when the time calls for it.

The play in question was the trick play the Eagles ran near the end of the second quarter of the Super Bowl in which Foles caught a touchdown one-yard pass from Trey Burton on a fourth down situation, putting Philadelphia ahead 21-15 before Jake Elliot scored a point off a kick to make it 22-15 heading into the halftime. He will learn that when they try to repeat.

If you're wondering who owns the New England Patriots and happen to be using Google you may be surprised what results you come across.
