NFL Season Opener: Twitter Reacts To Falcons' Loss To The Eagles

On their second drive of the third quarter, Eagles head coach Doug Pederson dialed up a trick play on a third-and-5 from the Atlanta 41-yard line, which ended with receiver Nelson Agholor hitting quarterback Nick Foles for a key 15-yard pickup. "We were on the correct hash mark and it was the right time of the game". I reminded the guys [Thursday] night is not going to define the year in the red zone.

"I mean, it's a good play", Foles said.

That's right. Eagles fans obviously were not happy with the performance of their team, though, both squads on the field did not play an elite brand of football in the first half. If Matt Ryan could actually complete a touchdown pass in the red zone, Johnson probably would've been singing a different tune.

This offseason, Pederson said he would probably put that play call on ice, but broke out a successful variation at an opportune time to the delight of the crowd. "That's [why] we've got work to do".

"That's a total disrespect for everything we stand for", he said. "Just were looking for a big play, somebody to make a play".

To quarterback Matt Ryan's credit, he did not blame offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian. But I want them to know that one game isn't going to define how we're going to play down there.
