I really enjoyed it. It was what we were all thinking/screaming after all. It was genuine excitement so it's good by me.
Personally, I loved the "make a man miss" line during the run.

Forney needed to be talked over. The guy was horrible.
im sure eli had a problem with it..........but i didnt. not a BIG eli fan (no pun intended). he seems to measure himself before he calls a play which i think puts him more behind the play than he should be.
I love the call.
Not at all. I want guys in the booth that care.
And for that matter i find it particularly irritating that anyone would imply that Eli would or should be offended by Phil "ruining" Elis "historical call".
Yes, i understand that play by play callers for sports are often defined and remembered for their great calls, but that moment is for the teams and the fans. Not some play by play guy. That wasn't Elis moment ; that was our moment and i appreciate phil... as well as Eli.... sharing it with us.
But i find it insulting when i hear about play by play guys having rehearsed or predetermined how they are going to call a big moment (ie that happens a TON in MLB). The best call is an honest spontaneous call. True emotion is what makes it so great to hear. And that's what Phil's was. . Honest spontaneous emotion
Jerry Duncan was in the booth. Layton was on his way to locker room.
No problem a all. I think years down the road I will appreciate it more knowing he captured my same emotion when the td happened. I wouldn't want just another td call. it needed some crazy character, cause it was a game and drive that was crazy

I believe I recall Snake getting a little excited on a few plays over the years.
No I loved his excitement!!!!
Absolutely no problem at all.
Eli's call sounded just like every other touchdown he calls. Savages two inputs MADE that a good, unique call.
I miss Stabler. His voice and accent were hilarious and he was a perfect guy to work with Eli. I wish he hadn't been a drunk so much so we could still hear him.
loved it and i guarantee eli has no problem with it
IMHO Paul Kennedy was the best Bama play-by-play announcer in my life time, dating back to
Maury Farrell, Dick Reid and Leland Childs. I always thought Forney was not too good, and he
wasn't, until Eli came along. Now Forney seems like Mel Allen/Lindsey Nelson
Thats why I choose to listen to the radio broadcast instead of tv. I'm in Afghanistan and just listening to Eli and the radio makes it more meaningful.,brings back so many great memories Thankful I heard this one as it happened. Love it. RTR

and that's exactly what you want from the team broadcast. That's also one of the reasons I like to listen to Chris Stewart...the passion for the home team is obvious.
I loved the call, myself.
Best part for me as well
