Even though the clubs are about to embark on a new season, the Eagles’ players and supporters’ hearts grew heavy as they thought back on their narrow loss in the playoff game. The Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert recently cited the field conditions as the cause of their defeat.

“I think I’m almost over it,” Goedert said on Barstool Sports’ Pardon My Take podcast of the 38-35 loss the Kansas City Chiefs handed the Eagles. “Man, the Sodfather did not do good, but he knew what he was doing. All I can say is it was a great game until the end.”

Dallas recorded six passes for 60 yards that night and he felt he would be able to contribute more if the field conditions were better.

“If the field was better, if we were playing on turf, you know I’d take us 10 (times) out of 10,” Goedert said. “But I have to say that.”

Though the close defeat is not easy to forget, the Eagles’ TE hope to learn a great lesson from it and utilize it in their upcoming season.

“I just hope we get back and play on good turf next year.”
