As far as desperation calls, the Eagles trick play on a kick return on Monday Night Football against the Saints proved to be kind of clever. It was the execution that was severely lacking.
Riley Cooper hiding in the Saints end zone, for as ridiculous as it looked, may have thrown New Orleans off a bit. Cooper was able to take the pass from Brandon Boykin to the house and some Eagles fans were going nuts at the craziness of it all.
Alas, the pass was clearly a forward one, negating any feeling of hope.
At least we'll always have its ridiculousness to look back on.
"I gotta do a better job teaching them which way backward and forward is," Reid said.
