I'm confused, was the play changed at the line? If not, how does Tate miss the play when a TO was called right before.


This confused me too. Was he on field for 2pt?
On a scale of 1 to Chris Brown, how pissed is he?

Here's the extended "Turning Point" video of the play

I didn't notice until now Sproles whiffed on the chip. Shows how quick Tate is to make that adjustment

Nick Foles says loss to Saints brought Eagles closer together. I asked Michael Bennett if he agreed

A few years ago none of us would believed these were quotes about the same Nick Foles

This is weird. Merrill doesn't know the numbers of the eagles players? The whole thing looks like a chaotic mess.

You crucify Merrill and Lee Corso all the time. Brantt hates non stick figure women on TV, you hate old people.

every NFL radio team has a spotter in the booth next to the pbp guy. merrill certainly can be rough these days but there's nothing in that video that is out of the ordinary. his calls were kind of low-key actually, surprisingly.

w Antonio Brown on the outs, plus the Le'veon Bell situation - who are the Eagles with Carson back healthy and those two in the arsenal with the two Tight Ends, and Alshon :shock:

We sure could run with Saints, Chiefs, Rams, etc... in terms of studs at all positions and scoring. Our D just has to b good, not great.

yes, yes, the cap the cap the money - blah blah... let Howie figure that out. Would those two like uniting across the state with a SB aspirational team? Just sayin...

Why do you hate Merrill? If I am listening to a football game on the radio, all I am hoping from the PBP guy is to give me down and distance, time, and outcome of each play. And it doesn't hurt if he can sprinkle in some formation/pre-snap motion stuff like Merill does. Information overload on the radio is the worst.

Merrill has a familiar/likable voice and seems to genuinely love the Eagles. What else are you looking for?

Merrill has a spotter like every other radio guy. That video posted contains nothing but the biggest plays of the game. Those calls are going to be used on the postgame highlite show and on various other platforms. It's critical that he does not have to correct himself on those plays, which is why the spotter is there.

Guy is a legend. Let him be.

Eight teams have a chance to win the Super Bowl. The Eagles are one of them. Why are you fantasizing over next season's starting offense? Let's live in the moment here.

And no, the Eagles will not be adding Brown and Bell in the offseason.

Objectively, Merrill hasn’t been good for at least a year. The SB last year was not good.

I like Merrill but I thought his call on the 4th down go ahead TD to Tate was lame.
