Eagles First Round Matchup?
Since it's the bye week, Mike and Todd posed the question about the Eagles first round playoff matchup. If the playoffs started today (of course they don't) the Eagles would be hosting the Carolina Panthers. Are you confident with that? Other opponents could include: Cardinals, Lions, Bears, Packers, 49ers.
FOX NFL rules analyst and former VP of officiating called in with his take on the non call against Rob Gronkowski on Monday night. Pereira said that if the referee threw the flag and that was his gut reaction then they should have stuck with the original call of pass interference. Pereira also will go on to try and clarify the definition of the word 'uncatchable.' He said the NFL defines it with one word: clearly. That's it. Pereira also goes on to talk about the penalty called against the 49ers on their hit on Drew Brees late in the game on Sunday.
