Philadelphia Eagles, Meet Irony

These items were too much to pass up:



1) For all of the inane flapping of their arms they do, the Eagles could have moved with a bit more alacrity in the fourth quarter as they were trying to come back from 10 points down.



2) Before the game, Freddie Mitchell was talking trash about Rodney Harrison and the rest of the Patriots' secondary. By the end of the game, Harrison caught more passes (2) thrown by Eagles' quarterback Donovan McNabb than did Mitchell (1). And he also made 7 solo tackles and one sack.



Mr. Mitchell would do well to remember the adage, "Keep your words soft and sweet. One day, you might have to eat them."



UPDATE: Wizbang picks up the irony, too, giving Mitchell's original statement its "Quote of the Day."



Congratulations to the Patriots!

They were in their 18-minute drill.

All Jets fans think Herm Edwards has got to be the worst ever at clock management ("Why didn't you just take a knee?" "I was thinking there are 100 seconds in a minute.") but fans of two-thirds of the teams in the league believe the same of theirs, and half of them have a case.

Think how bad the coaches who don't make the playoffs must be.
