If you were irked by NBC’s broadcast booth during the Super Bowl, you’re not alone—in fact, you’re joined by one of the game’s victors, Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Chris Long.

On Monday, Long, who now has to get the face of the Eagles’ linebackers coach tattooed on his body, sat down to enjoy from our point of view the win he’d helped secure.

His next two tweets were criticisms of in-game analyst Cris Collinsworth, a Pro Bowl receiver from 1981 to 1983, who thought Zach Ertz’s touchdown catch with 2:21 remaining to put Philly up 38-33 would be called back, and who called Long out, apparently incorrectly, for his positioning on New England’s failed trick play meant to end with a  Tom Brady reception.

A day later, Long would defend Collinsworth, but admit he can’t really speak to his abilities as an analyst.

He also complimented Tony Romo’s performance on the mic. This season was the former Dallas Cowboys quarterback’s first in the analyst’s seat.

Through the broadcaster’s booth: It’s been Romo’s best shot at a Super Bowl all along.
