Quick personal thoughts~ thank God I didn't use my B&G glasses during this weeks picks ( gals win , skins cover ) I was right T.O. was put on lock and pinkston had a chance to score on a long pass but right before the pass got there he curled up like a sissy and turned away for the hit he DIDN'T even get.......LMAO... One ramsey's last deperation pass he really showed spurrieritis Springs was called for P.I. setting up a T.D. Which was obviously Offesive P.I. The announcer mentioned that the ref. had no business making that call because he couldn't see where T.O.'s hand was. Springs suffered a concussion and T.O. was standing next to him for a good 5 minutes.....( classy ) Mike sellers is a good blocker and special teamer but he cost the team 30 yards in penalties. ( stupid ) Dropping 1 or 2 passes at the NFL level is acceptable if you have a QB who throws rockets every time ( like favre ) Unfortunately dropping 2 passes ( 1 for a TD and the other for an INT is not acceptable....... Sean Taylor laid the wood to T.O. but probably not bad enough to get on jacked up...maybe we'll see..... The skins scored 14 points and their points scored avg WENT UP...( sad ) John hall missed a makeable field goal.....I think it was lower 40's..... Betts is the best return man on the team...... The only reason westbrook averages 5 yards a carry is because he never gets the ball...lol......It seemed like he only got the ball on 3 and long.......of course he's gonna get 10+ yards on those..... ______________________________________________ Eagles hold off Redskins 17-14 NFL.com wire reports LANDOVER, Md. (Dec. 12, 2004) -- Andy Reid moved ahead of Joe Gibbs. Just barely. In a game much tighter than form would have predicted, the Philadelphia Eagles held off the Washington Redskins 17-14, winning their fifth straight and propelling Reid past Gibbs into first place in winning percentage among active coaches. A 10-point third quarter, capped by Dorsey Levens' 1-yard touchdown run, gave the Eagles a 17-7 lead and just enough cushion to withstand a fourth-quarter Redskins comeback. Washington converted an interception from Donovan McNabb into a 2-yard TD run from Clinton Portis with 12:04 remaining, and the Redskins drove to the Eagles 27 in the final two minutes. But Brian Dawkins intercepted Patrick Ramsey's pass in the back corner of the end zone with 1:46 to play, just getting his knee down as he bobbled the ball -- a decision upheld by video review. The Eagles (12-1), who clinched the NFC East two weeks ago, secured a first-round bye earlier when Atlanta beat Oakland. Reid's career record improved to 68-34 (.667), ahead of Hall of Fame coach Gibbs' 144-74 (.661). Reid also won't have to break out his black spandex tights this week because Terrell Owens didn't catch a touchdown pass. Owens has 14 TDs on the season, and the coach has promised to wear tights if Owens gets 15. The Redskins fell to 4-9, assuring Gibbs of his second losing season in his 13 years. Philadelphia is 10-0 against the NFC this year, but Washington is the first team to lose to the Eagles by fewer than 10 points. The Redskins fell to 4-9, assuring Gibbs of his second losing season in his 13 years. Owens was held to six catches for 46 yards and lost a fumble at the Redskins 8-yard line in the first half. McNabb followed his five-TD performance last week against Green Bay by completing 21 of 38 passes for 260 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Ramsey went 29-for-42 for 251 yards for the Redskins, and Laveranues Coles caught 12 passes for 100 yards despite a chronic toe injury that kept him out of practice for most of the week. Washington was hurt by 12 penalties for 137 yards. Mike Sellers was whistled for three personals, all on special teams. The game was marred by several injuries. Eagles linebacker Jason Short was carted off the field with a broken leg, and Redskins cornerback Shawn Springs was taken off on a backboard with a concussion, the result of a clean blindside block by fullback Josh Parry. The Eagles, already without defensive linemen Derrick Burgess and Jerome McDougle, had three more injured in the first half. Jevon Kearse hurt his neck and limped off twice with an ankle injury, but at least he kept coming back. Hollis Thomas dislocated his left elbow and could be done for the season. Corey Simon hurt his back and didn't return. Even a Redskins cheerleader was hurt, knocked to the ground when Owens was shoved into her by Redskins safety Sean Taylor. She walked off under her own power. Ladell Betts returned the opening kickoff 70 yards for the Redskins, setting up Portis' 5-yard TD run. Philadelphia tied the game with the help of a 47-yard pass interference on Springs, who drew the call in a game of mutual grabbing and clutching with Owens on a fly pattern. With a first-and-goal at the 2, McNabb hit L.J. Smith for the touchdown to tie the game.
