McNabb: Who knew?

18 Nov

dmac.jpgPhiladelphia Eagles fans have reason to be concerned this morning. After Sunday’s 13-13 tie against the listless Cincinnati Bengals, Donovan McNabb told reporters that he didn’t even know ties were an option in the NFL (full story). With that startling revelation, we decided to educate the veteran quarterback on a few other football rules that he may not be aware of:

  • Extra points, which occur after scoring a touchdown, count for one (1) point.
  • 6+1=7, also known as a touchdown plus extra point.
  • When it’s 1st and 10, your team needs 10 yards for a first down (new set of downs).
  • The team with the most points at the end of the game is declared the winner.
  • The Super Bowl is the championship game. Its intensity can cause a quarterback to choke under pressure… oh wait, he already knows that.

    I think you forgot:

    1. The QB should only throw the ball to guys wearing the same shirt as he.

    2. The guys wearing the striped shirts are not on prison work release program.

    3. What the rest of the world calls football, we in America call soccer.

    Good ones, Julia. We won’t hold it against you that you’re a Red Sox fan, either. We’re equal-opportunity bloggers here at The Max.

    Well thank you. I might not like the Yankees on the field but some of their fans can write pretty good blogs! Hope you “Hal” era will be good to the Yankees; but not too good!

    I see that McNabb had such a stellar game today that the Eagles benched him after the first half. I guess in addition to not knowing that regular season NFL games can end in a tie, Mr. McNabb has apparently forgotten how to throw the ball also. But that’s okay by me – I had Baltimore in my pool!

    We had Baltimore too. So we’re pretty happy. Looks like the McNabb era is finally over in Philly… hopefully.
