Bleeding Purple Podcast, Episode 47 - The Super Bowl dream is over

Beyond a game, the Super Bowl offers fans a 10-day festival

Beyond a game, the Super Bowl offers fans a 10-day festival

With a win in the Super Bowl, Pederson will cement his legacy in Eagles and sports history for decades by being the first to bring a Lombardi Trophy to the City of Brotherly Love. And it's all true.

Bad quarterbacks have won Super Bowls before. "But we have a quarterback that was advancing by leaps and bounds, and a team that was playing great, great defense, and an offensive line that was really good".

I understand the Eagles being underdogs in the two playoff games.

"But on top of that, seeing photos and videos of some Eagles fans bombarding Vikings fans with beer cans, insults and being told by police to leave the game for their protection, that was even more heartbreaking". Maybe a Vikings running back would lose an untimely fumble.

Twenty-seven years ago, it was Hostetler who was thrust into action for the New York Giants when starting QB Phil Simms got hurt during the 1990 season.

There's not much you can do about Tom Brady because no one else has a Tom Brady. Tomorrow is a new day, next year is a new year, and we will NEVER stop loving our team!

Keenum congratulated Foles in the tunnel after the game.

Foles completed 26 of his 33 passes en route to victory, throwing for 352 yards, three touchdowns, and no interceptions.

This is just the most recent time a visiting player has experienced the wrath of Philadelphia's finest. Just look at the below pie charts showing orders on Tickpick by state: the left side was before the NFC Championship Game, the right side was on Monday morning. The Cowboys were able to do it in 2016 when they lost Tony Romo in the preseason and had all year to adjust.

The Vikings were down 24 points, but the optimist in me felt three touchdowns and three 2-point conversions and we are tied. They'll face the New England Patriots on February 4 in Minneapolis. The Patriots signed him November 7. He bounced to the Eagles' practice squad and the Rams' roster before landing in New England as Wes Welker's slot replacement in 2013. He fired a 49-yard TD pass to Torrey Smith off a flea flicker to start the second half and tossed a 5-yard TD to Jeffery early in the fourth to make it 38-7. Long recovered a fumble in that game, while Blount rushed six times for 21 yards and a touchdown.

And thanks to online sports retailers Fanatics and FansEdge, you can now get the newest Philadelphia NFC Champions gear, including shirts, hats, hoodies, and more.

They've been consistently winning for so long, I played on two different National Football League teams that lost to Brady and Bellichick in the postseason.

It's been a bit more than 10 days since the exhilaration of the "Minnesota Miracle", not quite four since the debacle in Philadelphia - and soon comes a week of leadup to the Minneapolis Super Bowl that Vikings fans had become convinced was destined to be colored purple.
