He is also a grown man who has never registered to vote...suffice to say i dont think McNabb is the sharpest tool in the shed, hes certainly a tool though.

This isn't the first time an athlete didn't know something about his or her sport.

The amount of baseball players that know what BABIP stands for is probably minuscule.

Im not trying to make any political connotations or raise any type of political debate but it just seems that when he makes comments such as this or his earlier comments about voting it provides insight into his awareness and recognition of his surroundings and possible reasons why hes had issues with the media as well as on the field.

Watching post game interviews most of the players didn't know it would end in a tie, they all thought there were at least 2 OTs. That's why they were celebrating when the bengals missed the FG.

That's pretty damn sad. That's your business and livelyhood and they you don't know the rules to your sport you play. Not to mention, they have had to have known this. Remember come playoff time scenerio, we hear scenerios like if a team wins OR Ties. Don't they read or hear that? The leader of the team, the franchise QB, doesn't know that there is a tie and that's very sad.

Still, you have to know what happens at the end of overtime if nobody scores. If you don't know what happens, ask somebody. I'm sure he would have been a bit more concerned if he knew what happens. This hurts the Eagles playoff chances

And shouldn't maybe some coaches have mentioned it, if it seemed like the majority of the players were unaware that once the OT period ended, that was all?

Yeah they should too. But I am guessing at that point they would have assumed players would know. This isn't like some obscure rule. Hell, read the paper come playoff time, they have all the scenerios in there. Usually it says WIn or tie.. What did they think the tie meant? If you win you're in, if you wear a suit and necktie you're in?

It seems like you're just trying to find an excuse to bash the eagles, I'm sure a good number of bengals players didn't know either, they just didn't want to admit it.

Wait, did you really just defend an Eagles player? First you're rooting for Oklahoma, now this? WTF?

McNabb was probably just disappointed that he wasn't going to get a chance to set the NFL record for most pass attempts in a game. But that's another story for another day...

He said he didnt want to know what would happen if this kind of situation happened in the playoffs or super bowl. Pretty much he thinks you can tie in the post season now. ummm yeah. Mcnabb just lost his presser privileges.

Also no one should use the..."Well, the last tie was 6 years ago excuse." Maybe that would work if Mcnabb hadnt been in the league for 10 seasons.

and I hope other Eagles didnt know you couldn't tie either. That just reflects very poorly...I mean seriously.

I don't even know what to say to this. Any football fan knows that you can tie how the hell can a player not know. It's his job for christ sake. He's been playing in the NFL for 10 years and doesn't know you can tie? That's ******* ridiculous. I don't care if you're a rookie who's been playing college rules for the last 4 years, it's inexcusable not to know that.

I don't remember Atl playing Philly that year, maybe somebody can correct me but I don't believe so.


Matter of fact here is the Eagles schedule after that game:

Nov. 3 @ Chicago 1:00 (FOX )
Nov. 10 IND 1:00 (CBS )
Nov. 17 ARIZONA 1:00 (FOX )
Nov. 25 @ San Fran 9:00 (ABC )

McNabb does some weird things though.. Puking on the field, in the superbowl taking his time, saying this, and not lining up UNDER CENTER, but behind his guard, lol. Makes you wonder about him. Not saying that as a rival fan, because I respect his talent, but he certainly doesn't strike me as anywhere near smart.
