Takkarist McKinley tweets and deletes some wistful thinking about the Falcons’ last drive of the season

During the Super Bowl, no less.

Perhaps you caught the Eagles doing something supremely ballsy there at the end of the first half, electing to have tight end Trey Burton throw a touchdown pass to Nick Foles on fourth down. It was the kind of crazy, creative play that gets you killed if it fails and has people hailing you as a genius if it works, and hell, Doug Pederson looked like a genius.

Takk McKinley noticed that play, too.

Takk has subsequently deleted the tweet, but considering the Falcons ended a would-be winning drive against the Eagles with a sequence of plays pretty much everyone agreed were either ill-advised or poorly executed, it’s hard to blame him for watching that crazy play and feeling a little envious.

Please don’t give Takk a reason to do this in next year’s playoffs, Falcons.
