Eagles Had A Fake Walk-Through Practice Before Super Bowl Because The Patriots Cheat

Eagles coach Doug Pederson is the man, this comes to us via our friends at TotalProSports. “We may have found the reason the Patriots defense couldn’t stop the Eagles. Days before Super Bowl 52, the Philadelphia Eagles held a walk-through at the stadium and Eagles long snapper Rick Lovato told 620 WDAE that he believes the entire thing was fake. The reason? Just in case the New England Patriots were watching them. “We had run that play during a walk-through like two weeks ago,” Lovato said, according to Mike Florio of Pro Football TalkI believe our whole walkthrough was just a complete fake walkthrough,” Lovato said on 620 WDAE in Tampa (h/t Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk). “We did it at the stadium. There were certain people walking around…I believe I overheard someone say a lot of the plays we were running weren’t even in the playbook for the Super Bowl.” Pretty smart stuff right there.-TO
