The Post Mortem: That was an ass kicking
Redskins QB Donovan McNabb started sweating just by watching Eagles QB Michael Vick.
Was McNabb channeling his inner-Bobby Layne by drinking before the game? Perhaps earning his undeserved contract extension?
Former Eagles WR Terrell Owens put it best when he sent out this Tweet:
How do u justify a 78 million dollar contract w/this type of performance?
But not quite sure what Owens was getting at here. McNabb was at least in the game. Not standing on the sidelines burning $100 million like DT Albert Haynesworth.
I wonder what it would be like to spend all of that money on tickets to a Monday night game, wait around for the 9 p.m. tipoff and then before the first quarter even ends, your team is down 28-0? How many people were still tailgating in the parking lot when this game was over.
But here is the most charming story. Not sure if you caught the squabble before the game. But Redskins S LeRon Landry and CB DeAngelo Hall were jawing with Eagles WR DeSean Jackson.
Turns out that they were taunting Jackson because of his concussion problems. Classy. Looks like Jackson was the one delivering the knockout blow, moments into the game.
Now it makes sense why Vick dialed up a long bomb to open the game. Old Andy Reid was sticking it to the idiot Redskins.
I don't believe in karma, but this just might convince me.
NOBODY REALLY looked impressive at the top of the polls in NCAA football. Auburn mailed in its game against Georgia like they were doing the latest edition of the Weak Ender. Oregon was sleep walking. Boise State was doing what it does. And then there was Texas Christian.
Let's be honest, San Diego State has shown it can hang with tough teams on the road. Just ask Missouri. But here is the problem with the current system. The Aztecs were better off looking strong, then ultimately losing like they did. Because the Mountain West Conference could use the infusion of money stemming from a BCS appearance.
And the really sad thing about the BCS is that Pittsburgh is likely in.
BY THE numbers: Gomer had seven fantasy points on Sunday. Vick had 28 in the first quarter.
AND FINALLY ...
That 24 hour college basketball marathon is awesome. I am going to plan it better next year so I can spend that day in Las Vegas.
