No fluke...Carlos is ridiculously talented. Here's the goal to which I think owlhouse refers:

Daaa Scam: Say it ain't so, Ditka

Not that I'm a fan of Mariotti or Ditka, both annoy the hell out of me, but I think it's worth pointing out that Mariotti is (at least now) a columnist and not a journalist. There's a big difference. Columnists' sole job is to spout "unique" opinions and perspective, not to report facts through a journalistic process. This may seem like splitting hairs, but it is a big difference. Columnists are basically the pre-historic blogger...

Tim Hardaway, the yin to Jon Amaechi's yang:

No matter how brazen Hardaway's comments are they should not be compared to racism. Racism in this country is the unjust exercise of power (an action, not just a belief) over another people based simply on skin color. "Unjust exercise of power" is the key phrase. Hardaway has not exercised any unjust power over homosexuals.

Donovan McNabb unhappy?

Brainofdtrain: Garcia is a good QB, but not a great one...let's not get carried away. If he is so great why would he accept a number two spot behind a franchise player? Great QB's never CHOOSE to be a No. 2...You're right he did have solid numbers in the early part of this decade...but what happened in Cleveland? What happened in Detroit? You can make the argument that his team sucked also...but so did McNabb's earlier this decade, and he still made it to big games... (And maybe I am jealous of him for having the girlfriend that he has, there I said it...) Also, the whole pro bowl argument holds no water with me. Rich Gannon was pro bowl MVP twice -- Yes Rich Gannon, not exactly a great QB (look at his super bowl performance). SummersEve: Rodney Peete and Bobby Hoying can't hold Bubby Brister...

Donovan McNabb unhappy?

Anyone who has watched an Eagles game knows that their problem lies in the area of the d-line and linebackers. The offense is simply left trying to outscore the other offense - just like the announcers were saying in the Saints-Eagles game, it's a boxing match and whoever is left standing will win. Everyone knows this is never a good game plan. Garcia is not better than McNabb, actually only one or two QB's are better than McNabb at this point. Look at his numbers, and look at where he has taken his team. Remember, prior to TO, the Eagles had NO wide receivers. There number one guy was Todd frickin Pinkston, who was notorious for dropping the ball, especially when he was scared of being hit. Yet, McNabb was still able to put up the numbers and go to the big games. And if anyone wants to argue that TO made McNabb better, that's obvious - a good receiver will make a QB better (what would've Montana been without Rice, see KC Chiefs...). But Garcia also had TO in San Fran, and Garcia couldn't do anything. Garcia is a backup for a reason. He has had his chances at a starter, and couldn't make it. Sure, McNabb has confidence problems, but he's still a damn good QB.

Does it bother anyone that the second graph in the article reports his stats?

Carpe the Per Diem

Fight Fight Fight for the Cherry and the White...I'm a Temple alum, and I want to thank you SummersEve, for posting that...Sure we've won about two games in the past three or four years...but character does count for something.
