06:37 AM ET 05.02 | Down 27-24 with little more than a half-minute to play against the Eagles, Keyshawn Johnson ran one of his favorite routes, a fade to the right corner. But Lito Sheppard got in his way and Johnson cut his route short. Jake Delhomme's pass went about where it was supposed to, but Johnson did not. Sheppard picked off the pass to preserve the three-point victory. Delhomme took responsibility for the interception. Some teammates, as well as the gentlemen who employ them, waited for Johnson to acknowledge his role. But he would not say the fault was his. Rather than share the criticism from the media and fans, Keyshawn let Delhomme absorb all of it. The interception probably ended any opportunity Johnson had to remain a Panther.
