NFL: Super Bowl LIII-New England Patriots vs Los Angeles Rams Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

The New England Patriots defeated the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LIII by a final score of 13 to 3. Here are some hot takes on the big game, with a Philadelphia Eagles slant.

  • What an incredibly boring and unmemorable Super Bowl. It’s a good thing this game didn’t matter.
  • Philadelphia’s win over the Patriots in Super Bowl LII only continues to look impressive. The Eagles are the only team to beat the Patriots in New England’s last four trips to the Super Bowl. The Eagles could potentially be the last team to ever beat Tom Brady and Bill Belichick in the Super Bowl.
  • Don’t you feel like the Eagles could’ve beaten the Pats for a second year in a row if they just made it here? What if Alshon Jeffery never drops that pass in New Orleans?! The Pats are fortunate the Eagles didn’t make it back to see them.
  • Sean McVay is a fraud. Offensive genius my ass. No other team in Super Bowl history has only managed to score three points. I’ve been saying forever now that it was such a joke that he won Coach of the Year over Doug Pederson in 2017. The voters continue to look really, really foolish on that one. Pederson is 2-0 against McVay. Pederson also scored 41 points in a Super Bowl WIN over the Patriots. A big reason why the Eagles were able to beat the Pats is because Pederson was truly fearless. McVay, on the other hand, was a coward in this game. He opted to punt on 4th-and-3 in Patriots territory. He ran a coward’s draw on a 3rd-and-long before punting the ball to the Patriots, who then scored their only touchdown of the game. The truth is McVay didn’t even deserve to be in the Super Bowl. His incredibly weak decision to kick a red zone field goal against the Saints in the 2019 NFC Championship Game was bailed out by one of the worst missed calls in the history of the NFL playoffs. Thankfully, the Football Gods decided it was time to stop rewarding McVay’s cowardice on the biggest stage of the season.
  • Give me egotistical Carson Wentz over milquetoast Jared Goff any day of the week. Goff’s updated career playoff stats: 55% completion, 6.4 yards per attempt, 2 TD, 2 INT, 73.6 passer rating, 2 fumbles. Carson Wentz > Jared Goff. Also, Nick Foles > Jared Goff. Rams should’ve kept Foles!
  • All teams are now 0-0 once again. Here’s to the Eagles climbing back to the top of the mountain for their second Super Bowl win next year.
