It totally matters in terms of field position.

Well if he doesnt run his fat ass for the first we get the ball much close to mid...meaning when we inevitably **** up and have to punt we aren't giving them prime FG position with ~2 minutes left.

I think DJ Williams will start crying or slit his arms like that crazy guy in The Abyss when he watches the film of that chunky soup eatin' lard ball outrunning him.

without a doubt the most disappointing play of the game. They didn't get points on that drive, but it changed field position dramatically.

It proved to be the game. They gained 9 more yards after and field position was huge the second half, considering berger was god awful. They get possesion in our territory to start the final drive as a result. To say it doesn't matter is just ridiculous.

This. That play was huge in the end result. When he took off I was actually happy I didn't think he had a chance in hell of getting it

It was an all time play by an all time player.

The D did their job and got them off the field that drive. The refs stole it.

That was the turning point in the game ... causing us to get the ball inside our own 10 after a punt instead of at least our own 35 or 40.

Berger did what he had to to limit DeSean Jackson's killer returns. I'm not gonna harp on him for keeping Jackson in check.

It was painful watching DJ take a terrible angle going after Chunky. But in DJ's defense, he was running the other direction trying to keep the TE from making another back breaking play. It was a tough play, but a play I expect our highest paid LB to make.

Key, key play. DJ Williams blew the angle terribly.

McNabb made a play, and remember he gets paid too.

We wouldn't have a problem if the team had converted on 3rd down before that drive or put some puts some points up with the great starting positions that the defense had given us the entire second half.

We should have blitzed. It wouldn't have allowed a play to develop. Instead we did a 4 man rush, our DB's had to go back to cover and that left all that room for McNabb to own us with a run.

We asked for it with the playcall.

Absolutely. McNabb's scramble changed the field position at a critical time.

Seeing DJ Williams get dusted like that was pathetic, makes me question that guy big time.

Play of the game. Can't believe they dropped so many back, just a little bit of pressure would have done the job.

It sure did flip the field. McNabb is one of the best running QB's of all-time. He has rushed for 204 first downs in his career.

3rd and 25 and you want them to call a blitz? That's the absolute last thing you do in that situation.
