Philadelphia, Where Amazing Happens

D_jac_run_back
That may have been the single greatest play in Eagles history.  A 65 yard punt return by DeSean Jackson to cap a 21 point comeback.

Before the play, D-Jac spent a good 60 seconds getting himself pumped up, upping the cocky scale to near dangerous levels.

Instead of kicking the ball out of bounds, Matt Dodge kicked a line drive directly to Jackson.  He fumbled it, picked it up, ran backwards, then… go time.

He was aided by one of the greatest blocks of all-time by Jason Avant.

Then, instead of just taking to the ball into the endzone for the win (after the clock was already at zero), he ran across the goal line to show boat the shit out of that play make sure time had expired.

"I just wanted to run it along the goal line.  I knew nobody was going to catch me.  I just like to do some things for excitement.  That's what the fans and all the crowd… they pay for that."  

 

Yep.  About 80,000 New Yorkers.

The Eagles just capped the biggest "F you, New York" week of all-time.  And THAT is another beautiful thing. A Cliffmas Miracle at the Meadowlands, if you will (thanks to @cerenz for the mixing of metaphors).

  1. Never underestimate Philadelphia sports teams! As I watched DeSean Jackson pumping himself up, I knew at that point that something great was gonna happnen. Baseball is my game but it sure was a thrill to watch the Eagle’s come from behind vic. Go EAGLES!

  2. As an eagles fan, I think less of this blog for two reasons:
    That was far from the best play in birds history
    And despite the importance of that block, you’re telling me few are more important than it?
    Great win, but get off the the eagles dick and make an attempt at real journalism.

  3. Really? “As an Eagles fan, you think less of this blog?” That was an amazing play. Get off your high horse and enjoy the win.

  4. So in the opening statement, you say you think less of this blog, but your closing statement is to make an attempt at real journalism? Are you not familiar with the definition of a blog? Maybe you should voice your complaint to the journalists who’ve been saying the same thing on tv since the game ended. Jackass.

    Try reading the title of this Philly Sports Blog.
    “Crossing Broad”
    Scott and crew have and will always be biased towards Philly. It’s what makes it more enjoyable to read than the bare bones facts for us Philly fans.
    Also, he states that MAY have been. Obviously it’s open for discussion and discenting opinions.

  6. @ captidontsucklikethisblog wishes he had a blog like CrossingBroad. haha, JACKASS!
    Another fucked up individual, this country is full of em. Let him talk, no one cares.
