*Hmmm, so what did Michael Vick eat or drink or smoke before Monday night’s game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Washington Redskins. That’s the question. All we can say is good grief Charlie Brown! Bruhman took his game to a whole ‘nother level.
If you didn’t see it, on the very first play of the game, Vick threw an 88-yard touchdown pass to DeSean Jackson and he was just getting started.
(Scroll down to watch AP’s game recap.)
So, given all of Vick’s brilliance throughout the Eagles’ 59-28 smackdown of the Redskins on Monday night – four TD passes, two TD runs, plenty in between – it seemed reasonable to ask him whether he’s ever played a better game.
Vick paused, then delivered an honest answer.
“I’ve had some great games in my day,” the quarterback said. “But I don’t think I’ve had one quite like this one.”
In fact, in the 90 year history of the NFL, before last night, no player had ever done what Vick did, accumulating at least 300 yards passing, 50 yards rushing, four passing TDs and two rushing TDs in one game.
It comes down to this. In the wake of former Eagles quarterback, Donovan McNabb’s $78 million dollar, 5 year extension with the Redskins, we’re thinking hey, the wrong guy got the money.
McNabb, by the way, was 17 for 31 for 295 yards, with two touchdown passes and three interceptions, including one returned 40 yards for a score by Dimitri Patterson.
Speaking of McNabb, he refused to tie his feelings about his hefty extension and the 59-28 pounding together:
“At this point, no, because my focus is just on the game. It’s a question I won’t have to answer anymore. But this game — I’m embarrassed. With everything that was tied into it, the way it just snowballed in the wrong direction — it’s embarrassing.”
Wait, the pounding isn’t over for McNabb. His chief hater, Bengals receiver Terrell Owens, couldn’t wait to get in a lick, tweeting:
“How do u justify a 78 million dollar contract w/this type of performance?”
Wow, that’s a very interesting question, even from a loser like Owens.
