The "Philly Special" Statue is the Greatest Super Bowl Tribute of All-Time

When your team wins the Super Bowl, you can do whatever you want. Philadelphia Eagles fans have proven that to the football-watching world after their beloved team beat the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII to hoist the Lombardi Trophy. And now, thanks to Bud Light, a bronze statue depicting the moment Nick Foles asked head coach Dog Pederson "You want Philly Philly?" has been erected outside of Lincoln Financial Field.

If Philly's whole Super Bowl celebration wasn't already out of hand, the legendary "Philly Special" conversation between then-quarterback Nick Foles and former head coach Doug Pederson is now in the form of a statue inside the Headhouse Plaza at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Initially, the statue was not meant to become a permanent fixture, according to NBC Sports Philadelphia.

The Philly Special statue, created by Raymond Gibby, is another reminder of that trick play call that gave the Eagles a touchdown on fourth down, giving Philly a double-digit halftime lead and capture their first-ever NFL championship.

The Patriots were coming off their insane Super Bowl win against the Atlanta Falcons and showed no signs of stopping. Also showing no signs of stopping? Bud Light's "Dilly Dilly" ad campaign swept the nation, eventually seeping its way into the Eagles game planning.

After defeating the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship matchup, the Eagles knew they had to pull out all the stops to beat Tom Brady and the Patriots and that meant potentially ending up on ESPN's "Not Top Ten" list.

The trick play required Foles to get the ball to tight end Trey Burton and then take off on a receiving route. The hope was that Burton could hit Foles with a pass for a touchdown, something made easier by Burton's high school days as a quarterback.

As you can tell by the fact that there's a literal statue of the play call, Burton was able to connect with Foles for the score.

Carson Wentz, Foles and Doug Pederson, who now coaches the Jacksonville Jaguars, have since left Philadelphia, handing the keys to Nick Sirianni and Jalen Hurts as they head towards another playoff game at the Linc. But no matter where they end up, Nick Foles and Doug Pederson will always be Philly Sports giants.
