t never fails... just when I am about to say the dreaded words
"writers block," I am invariably struck with a moment of
inspiration. My recent light bulb moment did not come from
a PBS special on Big Ben, or putting a golf ball in a tree, or even
the hilarious things my boys say. This time it came from divine
construction. Indeed, something so perfect, so awe inspiring, that it
has to be written down for all time. Of course, I am talking about
the Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl win and their famous "Philly
Special" play call.
Now, for those readers who are not Eagles fan, or simply not
a fan of sports, bear with me. When you break down the "Philly
Special," you will find that it centers around trust and teamwork
more than x's and o's.
First let's set the scene; it's Super Bowl LII, the pinnacle of the
NFL season, the biggest and certainly one of the most watched
events of the year. The underdog Philadelphia Eagles are just one
yard away from scoring a crucial touchdown only seconds left
before halftime. The New England Patriots stonewalled the Eagles

last three attempts at scoring, leading to a fourth and final down. In
this situation, the safe call would be to kick a field goal to get the
three points. The uncertain call, would be to risk coming away with
nothing by running another play for a potential touchdown. And
that is just what 2nd year head coach Doug Pederson did. He went
for it, and the "Philly Special" was born.
The Anatomy of the "Philly Special"
"Philly Special" or any designed play in football is a coordinated
plan of attack with each player assigned a position, a role, and an
objective.
The play starts off with the quarterback walking to end of the
offensive line, looking lost. The ball is then hiked to the running
back who runs left, then the ball is pitched to a streaking Tight End
who carries the ball to the right. The Tight End then THROWS the
ball to the Quarterback who hardly moved but is now wide open for
the touchdown. Simple.
