it just sucks when you leave three points on the board like the eagles did with the first int ... then have two turnovers in enemy territory. some of that is definitely NE, but man, the first one was not new england that was just mcnabb screwing up.

tough call reid and mcnabb get you this far, tough to sell them down a river.
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.

At least WR Greg Lewis showed some flash. I'm not predicting him to be a superstar, but other than TO, the Eagles WRs stink. Freddie Mitchell? C'mon. Some people in the media pump him up like the next great thing and when asked about his stats and numbers, he falls back on the excuse of a system that spreads the ball out. Yeah, McNabb spreads the ball out to two people. TO and Westbrook. Mitchell has good hands and will go over the middle, but he has no separation ability. Freddie Mitchell. What a 1st round bust.

You cannot throw 3 ints in the superbowl, and Mcnabb is lucky the game was this close.The first int he threw to Harrison was a unbleiveable mistake, hey Donovan why didnt you just yell out before the snap you were going to Westy, come on that was a rookie mistake. Owens proved to me that he is the best in the game, the guy plays with his heart on his sleeve and now maybe all the haters will shut their mouths at least for a little while. Oh and Rodney Harrison had more receptions than Fred EX. ;-D
OLine play? I know the Pats had at least 2 false starts, maybe 3. I can't remember exactly. The single play that costs the Eagles this game is the lobbed INT that Harrison got. McNabb had a guy open coming across that would have been a good throw. Instead he threw a pick. Either they scored a TD there, and end up winning, or they kick a FG and end up tied and going into overtime.

THe O line gave Brady a ton of time to throw. Also opened some big holes for Dillon. There is no excuse for McNabb the dude choked as always, its called going through your checkdowns something McNabb never does. He locked on Westbrook from the snap, an easy pick for Harrison.

Didn't I just say the whole turning point was McNabb making that stupid decision? Sure didn't defend him. I'm just saying the Oline wasn't flawless.

What's weird about McNabb, is he threw an interception that was negated by a penalty, then on the very next play, he threw threw the first INT to Harrison.

There was also a pass that bounced off the chest of Randall Gay that should have been intercepted. That's 5 passes that should have been intercepted, McNabb's lucky only 3 of them counted.

McNabb might be the biggest choking QB of all time.

that's it. He was nervous and the big stage got the most of him. And the funny thing is that all season long and in their 2 playoff victories he kept saying how cool, calm, and confident he was in his abilities. Eagles are still the class of the NFC, and could have easily won that game yesterday had they been error free and with the help of a 100% TO. They put up more of a fight that Indy or Pittsburgh did.

Look for them to be even hungrier next year.

Next year will definitely be interesting. You wonder how long the Eagles can keep it up. This was the 4th year they have gone deep into the playoffs. Can they do it 5 years in a row? That's a rarity in today's parity driven NFL.

Who knows, they could fall off the face of the earth like the Bucs and Raiders did, or they could win it all. It's going to be torture waiting to see what happens.
