Eagles Show 49ers the Meaning of Being Physical: Super Bowl Bound After NFC Championship Victory

The San Francisco 49ers were in a tough spot heading into their NFC Championship game against the Philadelphia Eagles. With their starting quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo, ruled out due to an injury, the 49ers had to turn to their emergency quarterback C.J. Beathard as a last resort.

However, the 49ers could have been forced to play someone who wasn’t even a quarterback in the game. According to CBS Sports, the team was considering using wide receiver Richie James as their emergency quarterback if Beathard had been injured.

The Eagles ultimately won the game, but the 49ers showed great resilience in the face of adversity. After the game, several of the team’s star players, including Nick Bosa, George Kittle, and Raheem Mostert, spoke about how they had stuck together as a team and never lost faith in one another.

The Eagles showed the 49ers the meaning of being physical in the game, according to Sports Illustrated. In the end, the Eagles were simply the better team on the day, and their victory was a testament to their hard work and dedication.

The 49ers’ loss was clouded by what-ifs and second guesses, according to The Washington Post. Despite the disappointment, 49ers fans can take solace in the fact that their team gave it their all and showed great character in the face of adversity.

The Philadelphia Inquirer proclaimed that the Eagles may have put together one of the greatest teams in franchise history. Led by their star quarterback Carson Wentz, the Eagles have had an incredible season and have earned a spot in the Super Bowl.
