Throughout this season, I’ve been fortunate enough to capture some of Merrill Reese’s best calls during Eagles games on SportsRadio 94WIP. Last week against the Atlanta Falcons, I was feeling a little superstitiousy, so I decided to listen to the radio while watching the game and not worry about capturing any sound bites.
But something happened last week. I was pretty confident all week heading into the NFC Championship Game. Whether it was the Eagles’ home-field advantage at play, the fact that I thought the defense would suffocate the Vikings’ offense enough to get the victory, or whether it was just me being so used to the Eagles losing, that I was going to do everything in my power to enjoy this ride.
So, I pulled up Merrill and Mike once again last night. And here are some of their best calls:
Patrick Robinson interception return for a touchdown:
Derek Barnett’s strip-sack on Case Keenum:
Alshon Jeffery’s first touchdown:
Flea flicker to Torrey Smith:
And just for good measure:
Can’t wait for Minnesota in two weeks.
