Please stand and remove your hats…
Ok, let’s get busy…
In chronological order…
I hand MQ an autographed picture of The Nature Boy and a calendar for Green Fans The Movie. He seems to relish the picture more. Not sure what to make of that.
MQ and I put away some of Mickey D’s finest.
Efficient opening drive for the Eagles offense culminates in TD catch by Kevin Curtis.
Thanks to drop by a guy named Dinkins (who?) the Browns waste their own good opening drive and settle for 3.
I ask MQ if Reggie Brown is playing tonight. He throws me a look as if to say “like it matters.” Even his non-verbal actions are gold… pure gold.
Reading the scroll along the bottom of the screen, I see another NBA coach fired (Reggie Theus by the Kings), making him the 6th coach fired in this very young NBA season. I guess that would be call job in-security.
Eagles fail to convert a first and goal and settle for 3.
Eagles D forces a punt.
Scroll tells me Charles Barkley says race played a role in his alma mater Auburn hiring Gene Chizik to be their new head football coach and NOT former Nebraska star Turner Gill. Not sure he’s wrong. Here’s the ESPN story.
DeSean Jackson, from the Wildcat position, throws a pick in the end zone. The Eagles are letting this inferior team hang around.
Asante remembers this is Ken freakin Dorsey after all and steps in front of a poorly thrown pass; next stop the end zone.
Trent Cole exchanges pleasantries with Ken Dorsey; Brownies go 3 and out
36-year old Willie McGinest runs down Donovan… from behind
Another goal-to-go, another INT for the Birds Offense; this time a terrible throw by McNabb. Once again, letting a weaker team hang around. Half time. And almost the 3rd time the Eagles allowed a TD to be scored as the first half ended.
On the Food Network there is a gentleman identified as a “cough drop expert” which causes MQ to ponder… ‘how does one become a cough drop expert?
Mike Tirico says “the Browns are still in the game” which causes MQ to exclaim: “they’re not in the game… they don’t even score in practice!”
Reggie Brown’s name surfaces then sinks like the dead weight that he is.
Settling for a FG against the Browns is akin to lost possession.
Stewart Bradley INT follows a rare Donte Stallworth sighting.
Greg Lewis… Greg freaking Lewis scores a TD. Might be time to start revving the engines on the Browns plane.
Browns Def TD… yawn
Someone wakes up Sav Rocca, tells him he has to punt.
Santa snowball reference, just a matter of time.
Tony Kornheiser uses the word “fissure” for the 2nd time and I now use the word “pompous” for the first time
The Bottom Line…
The Eagles did what they needed to; beat a very, very bad Browns team. Move on to the Skins.
Til next time.
As always, time’s yours, food’s mine.
