9:21- CB takes it out to about the 30. LJ Smith with a catch and Tirico brings up the Andy Reid Family Issues and I'm surprised to say the least.
Woooooo! Sean Taylor just blasts Reggie Brown and there's no replay of course. Jason Avant (from Michigan.....fuck Anon....you win) catches a first down. Another first down for the Eagles as Westbrook picks up 14.
The crew talks about the Andy Reid thing which they should have dropped 4 plays ago. Westbrook makes the Skins D look like Pee Wee Football with about 17 missed tackles on that play and the Eagles are in the Red Zone.
Skins hold on third down just like the Eagles did and we're tied.....
3-3. 10:45 left in the 2nd.
"JASON AVANT WENT TO MICHIGAN. I WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"- Anon, Yeah Yeah Yeah.....your AA bumper sticker is in the mail my friend.
9:31- Skins ball at about the 30 after the kickoff.
Damn! Clinton Portis lays one of the hardest hits I've ever seen, but to no avail James picks it off for the Eagles at the Skins 40. Jaws does yet another excellent job of showing us how late Campbell threw that ball.
Eagles ball. Pass to LJ for a few and a run for a few. And a third and short for the Eagles. Shawn Springs gives Reggie Brown about a 10 yard cushion and the Skins defense is looking tired for the first time after the turnover.
9:37- Drop by LJ Smith and the Eagles are just lucky he didn't fumble. Rocky McIntosh wraps up Greg Lewis after a short gain, and another third and long for Philly. Incomplete and the Skins luck out again. They can't keep playing with fire like this.....it'll burn them soon enough.
6-3 Eagles as Akers just sneaks the ball inside the right post.
"Good job by Tafoya. She didn't say "Randy McMichael is injured. I mean, Randy Thomas."- Anon
"Chris Mortensen says the Falcons are about to sign Byron Leftwich. I guess that means that he will be a Raven in 24 hours."- Anon, Hahahahaha. Did anyone see him backpedal earlier on Countdown when they talked to him about Eli Manning? Hilarious.
Jaws re-analyzes the interception from his previous analysis a commercial break ago.
9:43- 9 yards on a carry by Portis that should have been marked a first down. The Skins lose a half a yard and they're looking at a long 3rd and 1. Sellers buries his head for the first up the middle.
Another run to the outside and that's just not working at all. Zero yards, and Consindine is injured....RUTS is happy.
"Good job, Jaws. Eagles would be up 14-3 if McNabb was on target."- Anon, Jaws is very Danielson tonight in that regard.
Side Note: Do any of you own a Fathead? I think I would disown a friend if they did.
9:49- A telegraphed pass on 2nd down is picked up easily by the Eagles D and Campbell is sacked. Third and long and Randle-El tries a few moves but falls just a yard short. Great job by Hanson to stay with him for the tackle.
(God I hate James Trash. He let's up an easy punt downed inside the 5 go in the endzone for a touchback.)
9:53 Tony Kornheiser trashes the Skins like he normally does, and Westbrook picks up a first down. Good job by Tirico for
"And Tony gets set to join Michael Wilbon PTI at the half."- MT
"Yes, but first I'm going videotape the defensive signals for the Redskins."- TK
Riiiight. It took you 2 quarters to say that scripted joke?
"I want a Mark Mangino Fathead."- Hollywood Wags, I second that.
9:55- 3rd and 6 and Carlos Rogers was luck to not get called for a penalty on that one. He's not turning to see the ball at all. McNabb looks a bit gimpy after that rush.
Antawn Randle-El gives me a heart-attack by not calling for a fair catch.
"I call it the old snot knocker game."- Ron Jaworski, Umm Okay.
9:59- Betts for a short gain and on 2nd down Campbell shows what everyone in Washington sees on him (We also see things like that pickle earlier in the quarter) nice catch by A-Dub to help him out on that throw.
And right on cue Campbell misses a wide-open Santana Moss. (Ugh.) He comes back to Moss again and is close to a first. They're short, and it'll be third and inches. Sneak by Campbell for the first and a timeout for the Skins.
Campbell out of the gun and a beautiful throw to the outside and Moss (they should have been doing this all quarter!). First down....and Campbell shows another thing Skins fans haven't seen in a long time.......someone who can run. 20 yard run.
Randle-El gets a nice pass and proceeds to break some ankles and stays in bounds as the clock runs. They spike to stop the clock. Somehow they pull off two idiotic penalties and move them about 10 yards back!!! (Fuck me.)
Jaws points out that this was coaching error and the replay confirms it. Trust me....it was. This happened about 40 times last season. Just "Art Shell" like clock management.
And the FG unit is out....no Gibbs takes it back. The offense is back!!! And another false start!!!! (Fucking kick it!)
(DON'T FUCKING KICK IT!!!!!!)
COOLEY WITH THE TOUCHDOWN! WHAT A THROW!!!
Wow. That was a lesson in futility. How the tight end catches the ball when they have to get a TD is beyond me. Horrible Defense.
Tony left the booth early and so am I....I need a break after that half. I'll see you in a new thread for the third quarter.
Here come the boooooooooooooooooooos...........
10-6 Redskins at half.
