No, seriously. Chip Kelly ran a play against the Giants that looks exactly like the famous QB EAGLES designed run from Tecmo Super Bowl.

Here's a link to Patrick Hruby's article about the documentary on Sports on Earth, and a place to discuss. You can also watch the documentary for free on PBS's website.

Hooray! Another article about going for it on fourth down, with which to poison Mike Smith's brain!
