    why the hell is it that every media source keeps listing Shanle as the guy who blocked McNabb at the end. Shanle is white, James is black, how hard is that to see?

    Not Shanle, It was Bradie James #56 who pancaked Donovan Mcnabb and the Cowboy who was closest to James was Demarcus Ware, who was about to throw a block but Williams was already across the goalline.

    I haven't been reading too many articles lately. Have there really been a lot of places saying it was Shanle?

    I saw a couple posters here who thought it was Shanle but that's been it. There was also some confusion first thing Tuesday on if it was Shanle or Dat that "called" the screen pass-- of course it was Dat.

    It was Madden during the game that kept saying "Shanle".
    Michaels finally said "James" a little later during one of the replays.
    I thought it was pretty obvious who it was if you were watching the game. James had him in his sights and then seemed to take it easy on DM.

    The problem is that their numbers are so similar. Dat is 59, Bradie's 56, Shanle s/b 58. Too close to see even tho they all have different skin tones..

    Some of the initial reports said Shanle... but they were pretty quickly corrected.

    Yes - I watched the game. Madden said repeatedly it was Shanle who made the block. He was wrong. He's old - forgive him. He also confused Aaron and Terry Glenn a bunch.

    Great block by James - nice to see a young player emerge as a starter and play solid. Kudo's to patience with him.

    I made this very point here the night of the game.
    Pretty obvious... if you have eyes.

    Shanle and Dat are hard to tell apart though. Especially when Dat's jersey rolls up in the back. Looks just like 58.

    I always get James and Shanle mixed up. They look so much alike.

    Get used to it - our ILB's are going to get better and better as we go along.

    This is a great season. I have not felt so much upbeat Dallas love since 1991....

    True professionalism from the young kid. No need to crush McNabb to get the job done. He did exactly what was necessary and nothing less.
