At the end of each Super Bowl, the winning team gets to hoist the Lombardi Trophy, which is named after former Green Bay Packers head coach Vince Lombardi.
Lombardi was the first coach to win a Super Bowl in January 1967. However, during that time, the championship game was referred to as the AFL-NFL World Championship Game.
The league changed the name to the Super Bowl in 1969, but Lombardi went down in the history books as the first coach to win a Super Bowl after the merger.
Tevin Coleman Authentic Jersey Come on. Nobody but the Eagles themselves and maybe Andre Dawson Youth jersey their immediate families thought a Nick Foles-led team could accomplish what this squad did after losing Carson Wentz to a torn ACL at the tail end of his MVP campaign. They were the underdogs of all underdogs, and they pulled off a hard-fought and well-deserved win. I respect the hell out of all of it.
But the 2016 Falcons? They had last year’s league MVP, Matt Ryan. They had one of the best receivers in the league in Julio Jones and a dynamic one-two punch in the backfield with Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman. Atlanta led the entire NFL in scoring with almost 34 points per game and were second in the league in total offense. Kyle Shanahan was always two steps ahead, picking apart virtually every single defense the Falcons faced.
To be fair, most people did. The Eagles were big-time underdogs after Carson Wentz went down, but hey 锟斤拷 Philly used that as fuel and prevailed. Jeffery, to his credit, was a huge reason the Eagles were able to get over the hump and was great in the Super Bowl, catching three passes for 73 yards and a touchdown.
So Jeffery and the Eagles got one last opportunity to take a shot at the Pats on the way out of town. The eagle emojis on the video were a nice touch.
When the team arrived home, they found a hero’s welcome.
The best thing about close Super Bowl games is that you get that one play, that defining play that becomes the image of the game. The play that wraps up all the narratives of the season and can be easily packaged as a cliche for the spirit of the NFL. That picture of the triumphant individual. We’ve had the Malcolm Butler interception, the David Tyree and Santonio Holmes catches, the Marcus Allen reverse run, and the Mike Jones tackle. It’s the moment that keeps us watching the games, the moment that every athlete dreams of growing up.
