    Wentz wasn't good and it was still far from his worst game. The biggest issue tonight and last week as well was Doug Pederson. He has been unbelievably bad. So bad that I wouldn't be surprised if he was fired by the morning.

    Going back to your original question, only thing I can think of is if a miracle was about to happen and the eagles did recover the onside kick and get a TD in 12 seconds, Doug didnít have the confidence to win it in OT so would rather have a PAT win it in regulation

    I think there's zero chance Doug is fired in season. color me surprised if that happens

    When your down 14 late in the 4th it makes sense to go for two. Itís a analytics thing.

    It's just the same thing we've been doing 2 or 3 times this season. If you need 14 points anyway, you go for 2 on the first TD to give you chance of ending up with 15 points in the end. Converting one of two 2 point conversion and hitting two extra point kicks is roughly the same likelihood.

    You need one after the fg.

    You give them a chance.

    Lurie will wait until the season to end before cleaning house. He will not do it in season. That is just not his style.

    Down 8, get a stop.

    Go score, love it die by a two point conversion rather than 4th and 4.

    You need points there. Completely deflating.

    I mean hindsight is 20/20. if it works its praised

    truth is that play just incapsulated the eagles perfectly

    Doug making a bad decision, Carson making an equally bad decision

    its the 2020 eagles. 3 wins 11 games in because the coach and QB aren't performing

    If you take the FG, and get a TD afterward but not the 2 point conversion, you're gonna have to score again. You also give the defense the ball twice. That's just extremely unlikely to work out with the amount of time left. The odds for converting the 4th down and getting 1 TD + 2 pts + 1 FG, or even 2 TD are higher than that.

    Disagree.
