McNabb: Not the most situationally aware fellow...

By Doug Farrar

He caught a lot of heat last year for not knowing how NFL ties work, though he's not the only one -- heck, even intelligent ex-quarterbacks-turned-announcers get it wrong from time to time. But Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb (notes) must carry the grief alone for his clock-butchering boo-boo in his team's 13-9 loss to the Oakland Raiders.

Down 10-3 with 27 seconds left in the first half, McNabb went to the line and called a time out after deciding that he didn't like what he saw on the Raiders' side of the ball. Problem was, the Eagles had already used their customary three time-outs in the half, and no amount of bargaining could get them another one. Philly was busted for delay of game, the ball was pushed back from the Oakland 15 to the Oakland 20, McNabb took a Richard Seymour(notes) sack on the next play, and the Eagles had to settle for a field goal. Had the Eagles scored a touchdown and kicked the extra point in that drive, they would have had the points needed to tie the Raiders.

Of course, McNabb wasn't the only one at fault. He might have had a few other things going on, what with left tackle Jason Peters(notes) suffering a knee injury and giving way to King Dunlap(notes) (who???). And he might have expected that Andy Reid, his beloved head coach, would have left Mac5 a time out late in the half instead of calling two on the previous drive -- both after incomplete passes (which kill the clock, anyway). Of course, when it comes to clock management, Reid won't make anyone's top ten list.

Whatever bedeviled McNabb on that particular occasion, he'd best get over it -- Peters is scheduled for an MRI today, and Reid isn't going to get any more prudent with the clock. The Eagles have an extra day this week before they face the Redskins on Monday Night Football, and they certainly don't want to be the team with the least amount of preparation and awareness in THAT particular matchup. After all, the Redskins have their own history with timeouts.

McNabb is one of the worst QB's to ever run a 2 minute offense.

He was simply doing his best Tony Romo impersonation.

And Redskins/Eagles next Monday night? Good for me. Finally a Tuesday morning where I'm not going to be a walking zombie in work.

I think Philly's playcalling is questionable. They rarely ever try to run the ball, it's just pass and pass and pass all game, even when against teams that don't stop the run all that well. This has been a problem the last few years. They either abandon the run too quickly or don't even try to run the ball so often.

Their (Eagle coaches, not McNabb) clock management at the end of the game will not be taught at the next head-coaches seminar either.
Calling their last time out with 2:02 left in the game and the Raiders facing 3rd and long meant the Raiders can call a pass play not worried about stopping the clock if the pass is incomplete (2min warning).
Result: quick pass to the flat, 10 yard gain, game over.

as to the OP's subject: um no. Rush was a douche for even going there and I think he regrets it. Would be like going after Jerome Iginla in hockeyspeak IMHO. All that being said, Rush (a big fat liar) does have to fill a ton of air time day in and day out and I am sure he's said lots of things he'd like back. Just the law of probabilities. He made a mistake a long time ago and I don't think that should have DQed him from NFL team ownership. Was sorry to see that happen to him.

Did I mention that he's still a douche?

Dude, it was more than one thing a long time ago.

Back to the Eagles:

Andy Reid should be fired at the end of the season.

That is far from all that got him DQed from ownership.

He's just about the most venomously anti-unionization voice in this country. The players just so happen to be a union group, one who's collective bargaining agreement is due for a renegotiation. He can try and spin it like the union didn't want him, but in reality the other owners didn't want him because of those kinds of conflicts.

The chances he'd say something highly problematic are far too high for ownership to want him in the club.

In other news Mike Vick has completed 1 pass in 5 attempts for a grand total of 1 yard. Oh and 6 rushes for 13 yards, 2.2 avg if you are doing the math.
