With the 2018 NFL season set to kick off in less than two weeks, I feel just about ready to turn my attention away from the Eagles’ win in Super Bowl 52 and begin obsessing over the possibility of Doug Pederson’s squad going back-to-back.
If you are like me, you are probably at the point where you can almost recite the game’s entire drive chart, or draw up the play design of “Philly Special” from memory. In fact, I’m sure most of us have seen the play no less than 500 times, but as it turns out, we are still learning new things about it. For instance, Trey Burton misfired his first three passes to Nick Foles when the team ran the play at practice, according to Pederson during an appearance on Colin Cowherd’s show earlier today.
You can check it out after the jump.

See, guys. There’s no reason to overly worry about an ugly preseason performance against the Browns. These guys couldn’t nail down practice reps of what eventually became one of the franchise’s all-time greatest plays. Don’t sweat it.
