According to Eagles LS Rick Lovato, Philadelphia ran a fake walk-through leading up to Super Bowl 52 against the Patriots.
Here is what Lovato told 620 WDAE:
“I believe our whole walk-through was just a complete fake walk-through,” Lovato told The Ron and JP Show. “We did it at the stadium. There were certain people walking around. I believe I overheard someone say a lot of the plays we were running weren’t even plays that was in the playbook for the Super Bowl.”
According to Lovato, the game plan was set two weeks ago:
“We already had our game plan set all week for the last two weeks,” Lovato explained. “We had two weeks to prepare for that game. A measly walk-through the day before the game, we weren’t going to show anything to anyone, especially being at the stadium.”
I guess it’s safe to say that you can never trust the Patriots.
