Eagles over Redskins, Monday, November 15, 2010
Stud of the Week: Michael Vick. No contest. Threw for 4 TDs and over 300 yards, ran for 2 TDs and 80 yards. He was out of control good. Scary good (well, at least if you're a Redskin). If you look up "off the hook" in the dictionary, you'll see his picture.
So I've been getting emails and texts all day to the effect of "I can't wait to see your recap of the game!"
Here it is:
Redskins get whomped. Film at 11.
Seriously, what else is there to say
Eagles first series? Well, it wasn't a series -- it was one play, an 88 yard TD hookup between Vick and DeSean Jackson.
Redskins first series? Three and out.
Eagles first quarter? 4 TDs.
Redskins first quarter? No first downs.
As Cool Web Dude observed: the Redskins scored all their points in junk time. Which was pretty much the last 3 quarters of the game.
I don't know what happened, but the Eagles were ballin'.
Actually, I might know what happened (although I didn't see it, because it takes a million years to get anywhere in DC during rush hour, and it takes two million years to get to FedEx, so we just got to our seats in time to see the DJax TD) -- apparently during warmups, there was some jawing and a little fracas that got the Eagles' dander up. So I think what we learned last night is that you don't want to see these guys pissed.
The other big story of the night was, of course, McNabb's new contract. Although additional details have come out at this point that make it not quite as jaw-dropping as it initially looked (they can cut him after this year and only own him another $3M in addition to his salary for the year), it is a clear demonstration of organizational schizophrenia. Two weeks ago, Kyle Shanahan benches him for Rex f-ing Grossman, Pops Shanahan spends two weeks coming up with increasingly implausible cover for Junior, then they write DMac a $78M "I'm sorry" check. Yeah, for Dan Snyder, that amounts to the change in the sofa cushions, but still, if you manage to figure out what the Redskins are up to, do let me know, because I don't have a clue.
Get the rest at Snarkin' the NFL.
