09:27 AM ET 10.02 | It's been awhile since Freddie Mitchell ripped Donovan McNabb, but he sounded off this week, explaining why he has always had a problem with the former Eagles quarterback. "I really didn't like him because he wasn't going down the progressions. He wasn't going one, two, three and then four," Mitchell said. "I was the third progression off the offensive playbook so it was like I'm running my routes as hard as possible and he's not looking at that. He's going from one to the safety valve, which was Brian Westbrook, which isn't a bad safety valve, but a lot of the great quarterbacks, they'll read down the progression and that's how the west-coast offense is supposed to be ran."

Sounds like someone is grumpy because he didn't get the ball as often as he would have liked. Moving on!

I find it a bit difficult to take anything Freddie Mitchell says very seriously.

That said - Skins are in for a dogfight tomorrow.

McNabb is worthy of some criticism but not from a tool like Mitchell.

I would like to see McNabb get revenge on his former team, but I'm not sure it will happen this year. I do think, however, the Pack will whoop all over Minnesota when they play.

So what does this mean, that he is progressionly challenged?

Actually... with Mitchell third in the progression I think it's safe to say that the Iggles were very progressionally challenged at the time.

Freddie claimed to be Filet Mignon but he really is just a meat head.

Hasn't this bum been teaching as a substitute teacher the past 5 years?

Freddie Mitchell was just glad someone asked him a football related question.

White women? I want to see one of those black white women. Are they striped like a zebra?
