Frinklin Football Follow Up

I know, enough with the alliteration.

The Patriots are the NFL’s newest dynasty with their third Super Bowl win in the last four years. The game was exciting, if not as well-played as you might expect from these two teams. Donovan McNabb ended with great stats, but seemed to make just as many big plays for the Patriots as he did the Eagles. Philly took this game down to the wire, but stumbled at the end. Richard asks if anyone has ever seen a team play with less urgency during a two-minute drill. The answer is no, certainly not a team in this kind of situation. The Eagles never seemed to handle the clock at all.

Lastly, I think people have to be impressed with Terrell Owens. Whether you like him-I certainly don’t-TO was one of the few Eagles who played with real intensity the last few minutes. Finishing with over 100 yards receiving was really quite impressive for a one-legged man.

Now, we just need to get March Madness done with, and its on to the important stuff: Baseball. Pitchers and catchers report in less than two weeks.

Update 2.7.05 Peter King nailed it in his column for SI.com today I mean, it's like Reid didn't trust McNabb to run the hurry-up offense. That certainly seems to be the case.
