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.
