Hey, remember when Donovan McNabb went from the laughingstock of the NFL after admitting not knowing the rules of overtime to the Eagles’ bench - replaced by Kevin Kolb! - after a horrible first half against the Ravens. And when Andy Reid was practically a dead man walking in Philadelphia, with the only questions being who would replace him and where he would eventually land.
(Kendra Wilkinson, fiance of Eagles WR Hank Baskett, enjoyed the win)
Well, who is laughing now? (Actually, I still am about the overtime tie thing, because that’s still ridiculous.) At the least, the Vikings have to deal with the realization that they lost to a team quarterbacked by a guy who doesn’t know the basic rules of football, after the Eagles marched into Minnesota and promptly manhandled the Vikings in a 26-14 victory.
The NFL season kicks off in New York tonight, but even though the games count, it’s not officially the NFL season until Drew Rosenhaus does something to piss somebody off. Thankfully we have Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Sheldon Brown, who isn’t a very big fan of Drew’s, and has no problem letting the world know about it.
Sheldon didn’t take to kindly to the video Rosenhaus put up on YouTube recently detailing the status of his new client Lito Sheppard’s attempts to get a new contract from the Eagles. He not only feels that Drew insulted him in the video, but he thinks that by hiring Rosenhaus, Sheppard just might kill his career.
