It is a moment that will never be forgotten by any Philadelphia Eagles fan, and it has now been voted the best play in NFL history on NFL.com. Picture it: a game against the hated New York Giants, on their home turf, and the Birds were being beaten. Badly.

  • It was agreat play, really clutch. Too bad he ruined it by proving what a classless little piece of shiit he is by not getting his ass in the end zone right away. Instead he ran along the goal line before crossing the line. But hey, what can you expect from an eagle. The team has no class just like the fans have no class. Bad Karma Baby!!!! No Super Bowl EVER for this franchise, and I Love that.
