the finger at everyone but himself. It's always the Defense's fault. Whether it
was the Superbowl loss to the Pats, the NFC Championship loss to the Rams, or
this years NFC Championship. Here's what Mcnabb had to say about his teammates...
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."
So let's see, falling behind 24-6 had nothing to do with the loss. Said Quarterback going 13-23, 129yds, 0 TD's, 1 INT, and 1 fumble played no roll in the deficit. And of course, how could you not expect a Defense to hold a 1 point lead with 11 minutes to go in the game.
This guy is a leader! Philly should give him the extension he wants right now and continue to hitch their wagon to this loser. One things for sure, if the wagon is like his passes, it's going to be a bouncy ride!
Cheers and Hail
