McNabb definitely choked in this game (so did his O-line for the entire 1st quarter at least), however until Manning gets to the SB McNabb can only be the 2nd biggest choker in the NFL.

btw: Props for the objective posting, I admit I expected less maturity from you, and I was wrong about that.

Hehehe! No, not quite, although I felt some small, microscopic amount of pity for them when they lost, although I still hope they never win a Super Bowl.

You're right. Philly sports radio had Runyan and Fraley on and they stated McNabb was ready to puke either due to the heat or pressure. It was stated that Mitchell was finishing up on McNabbs play calling in the huddle. They stated this was the reason why the offense wasnt hurried.

i wonder if some of the rumors are true that he was concussed. there were a couple of plays where he didn't strap in his chinstrap (he usually has the chins trap on, but doesn't clip the sides) -- which seemed odd to me.

at any rate -- The choker thing is getting absurd, they got the team to the super bowl -- and he was certainly a mixed bag in the game, but he did also put them in a position to win too -- so he had some chokes in there.

but the fact is the pats didn't impose their will ont he birds like they have with everyone else. Everyone assumed the eagles needed a "perfect game" -- which it is now obvious wasn't true. they were still in it with 4 turnovers and a weird stretch of playcalling.

"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."

well, if the one counted, the other one wouldn't have happened -- so it was the same number.

Also on the one that called back by holding -- mcnabb may not be good at checkdowns, but he is fantastic with getting the pass off when he sees a penalty. he was pointing at the guy as soon as he released the ball. He didn't "get lucky on that one" he knew to throw it, because they would get it back.
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.

McNabb isn't the biggest choker of all time. Either Tarkenton or Jim Kelly are, both losing 4! Super Bowls.

So maybe TO was justified in screaming "Relax! Relax!" to McNabb on the sidelines. If the Philly make it again to the superbowl, McNabb will be fine.

Eh, Owens got screwed out of history. The Eagles win that game, and he is the greatest warrior of all time. Better then Kirk Gibson hitting the home run, better then Willis Reed coming in against Chamberlain, etc. He played with a far worse injury and had great numbers. Instead of becoming a legend like those 2, no one will forget about his celebrations. Please.

I'm not so sure. Every year that the Eagles don't win a Super Bowl is another year that the pressure is mounting. They've been the favorites in the NFC for three years now and have no rings to show for it. I think the pressure gets even more intense from here on out.
