I also read a story this week where a couple of thugs brought diesel fuel over to McNabb’s Arizona home and burned ‘Go Cards’ in his front yard and caused $2,000 in damage, not to mention the general danger involved in such a "prank.". The fact that superstar play-making machine. Or write about sports? And the Eagles' schedule was too brutal to handle thanks to a strong NFC East. The game itself hurt no question about it. Do you have a sports website? In the twenty-fourth minute the Sea Eagles' hooker Matt Ballin at close-range ran from dummy-half and crashed over the try-line. It was at the time the fourth-biggest loss in the Storm's history. In the forty-seventh minute, The Sea Eagles were within twenty metres of the Storm's try-line when Matt Orford at first receiver put a grubber kick into the left corner which bounced up perfectly for Michael Robertson racing through on the wing to grab and dive over for his second try. I found Joe Buck and Troy Aikman to be especially hard on Donovan in the first half of the telecast. In the waning moments of the game, the Cardinals had the ball on the Philadelphia 44 yard line leading by seven points, and trying to run out the clock.

Time will render this season a success, and there are many fond memories for a fan to take away from it. It’s possible that emotional leader Brian Dawkins and other fan favorites like Jon Runyan and Tra Thomas will not be Eagles next season, and very probable that all won’t be back. Placed WR Jalen Reagor on Reserve/Injured. The game was also notable for winger Michael Robertson's hat-trick and retiring legend Steve Menzies' try 10 minutes from full-time, which he scored after coming back onto the field to replace the injured Steve Matai.
