Here's some transparency. One of our favorite times of the year comes when NFL Films releases those Philadelphia Eagles team yearbooks that they drop every offseason. You know the ones. They are about 30 minutes long, and they have all of those highlights and cool music. They make you feel like the Birds are going to win the Super Bowl every year if they make an adjustment or two.
Here's the best part of all of that. Philly has a real shot at representing the NFC in football's biggest game again. It's too early to book those plane tickets to Las Vegas though. We'll continue to take things a week at a time and hope things play out as we hope.
Time will tell the tale as it always does. We'll see how Philly's story turns out. Here's where we'd like to throw in our two cents. Next offseason's yearbook MUST contain one play.
Jalen Hurts' fourth-quarter toss to Olamide Zaccheaus belongs on a list of QB1's best plays of his Eagles career.
Picture it. The Eagles are down in the fourth quarter. It's third and 15 from the Bills' 29-yard line. James Bradberry has just picked off a pass three plays earlier. Philly is looking to cash in with six points.
Jalen rolls left, directs traffic, and tosses one deep. Hometown product Olamide Zaccheaus is on the other end. The result is one of the prettiest tosses and catches that you'll ever see.
Place that one on your hearts ladies and gents! If Philly goes on another deep playoff run and seals the deal in Vegas, this is one of the plays we'll talk about as being one of the moments that lit the fuse.
It appears the feedback on this one has been extraordinary. Some of our favorite media voices approve.
NFL media posted an insane look at the work Olamide Zaccheaus put in to help make this one happen. Alabama Crimson Tide fans... Eat your hearts out.
Based on the timing of the game and the situation, this is without question, one of the best plays of Jalen Hurts' young career so far. Philly improves to 10-1 on the season. They're the first NFL team to reach ten wins in the 2023-2024 NFL campaign.
Next up on the slate is a game versus the hated San Francisco 49ers. Buckle up. That one should be a war as well. Hopefully QB1, Olamide Zaccheaus, and the Eagles bring their A-game for that one as well.
