Things were quiet in Philadelphia for, what, three weeks? Donovan McNabb did his best to rile up the masses with some interesting comments about the Eagles' loss to the Cardinals in the NFC championship game. From Philly.com:
In the latest example of not-so-fearless leadership, McNabb hinted -- and not very subtly, either -- that the Eagles' defense was to blame for the NFC championship loss in Arizona. McNabb was on WIP-AM (610) recently when he was asked why the Birds could not score another touchdown after the Cardinals took a 32-25 lead."We were up, 25-24," McNabb said. Then, in case people missed it the first time, he repeated it for good measure.
"We were up, 25-24. [The Cardinals] drove down 72 yards by running the ball - probably, what, eight times? And it reminded me so much of [the NFC championship game in] St. Louis where, coming back in that second half, they ran the ball nine times with Marshall Faulk to keep our offense off the field. Because they were terrified of us going back out and scoring more points."
