So I asked him why after the game.

"Ah man,” Sanders said. “I had a plan to yell like the Waterboy because I was mic’d up today and I hope y’all hear it. That’s exactly what went on."
OK, fair enough.

The 1998 Adam Sandler flick is a classic and Sanders sounded a lot like Bobby Boucher when he landed his block for Mr. Coach Klein … err … Nick Sirianni.
We know this because the Eagles released the video on Monday evening. … And even Sandler himself had to give Sanders a shoutout.
Just the latest fun moment in the Eagles’ 12-1 season. Sanders, by the way, is up to 1,068 yards and 11 touchdowns and counting in his career year. And he’s also improved quite a bit as a blocker as he showed in this big win.
