You're right, I didn't think they were going to show the replay because they didn't show it before teh commercial break. That was a correct call.

Gimme a break. His knee was down for a fraction of a second and was easily confused with his next football move which was skirting off and away from the blitz.

this game has been sooo defensive. punt after punt after punt. I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up being 3-0 in the end. each team is doing great at stopping the run, esp the pats. the eagles have been forced to pass a lot.

On the play where PInkston caught the 40 yard pass, which essentially got Philly's first TD, Tra Thomas blatantly blocked Richard Seymour in the back. Seymour was breathing down McNabb's neck, so Tra Thomas simply blocked him in teh back. No call. Result of the play: 40 yard pass to Pinkston, setting the Eagles up to score their first TD.

Don't believe me, rewind the game when it's over. It was at roughly 11:20 in the 2nd quarter.

Why are the refs so quick to award Philly with the fumble recovery just because Darwin Walker came up with it after 30 minutes of fighting under the pile? If anything, Tom Brady had more possession of it than anyone else when the first Eagle touched him.

And why are the refs so quick to not see McNabb's knee down when he was sacked, and then fumbled?

And why are the refs so quick to not see Givens' knee down on Givens' fumble?

You're trolling.

I'm considering locking this tread. Keep it up.

What's trolling? I'm not trying to be smart, I honestly don't know what that is. Let me know what it is and I'll stop, honestly.

Wikipedia.com wrote:
An internet troll is a person who sends duplicitous messages hoping to get angry responses, or a message sent by such a person. The term derives from the phrase "trolling for newbies" and ultimately from trolling for fish. Its use, refering to unwanted internet posts, originated on usenet. The term is frequently abused to slander opponents in heated debates and is frequently misapplied to those who are ignorant of etiquette.

Trolling is often described as an online version of the breaching experiment, where social boundaries and rules of etiquette are broken. Self-proclaimed trolls often style themselves as Devil's Advocates or gadflies or culture jammers, challenging the dominant discourse and assumptions of the forum they are trolling in an attempt to subvert and introduce different ways of thinking. Detractors who value etiquette claim that true Devil's Advocates generally identify themselves as such for the sake of etiquette, whereas trolls often consider etiquette to be something worth trolling in order to fight groupthink.

Trolls are sometimes caricatured as socially inept. This is often due to the fundamental attribution error, as it is impossible to know the real traits of an individual solely from their online discourse. Indeed, since intentional trolls are alleged to knowingly flout social boundaries, it is difficult to typecast them as socially inept since they have arguably proven adept at their goal.

To take a page from The Cuna, "Methinks aww is correct." :-/
