I know Donovan, this completely sucks. Two minute drill, down by seven points; this is the drive that sends you to Canton. And then a certain cornerback...cough cough Roderick Hood...is allowed to ankle-tackle Kevin Curtis on 4th-and-long. This is not the fault of our franchise quarterback or our longest tenured coach in the city. When it comes down to it, the game was completely blown by the refs.
I do not care what team you root for, Avant was being held all over on that 3rd down in the red zone, and Kevin Curtis was essentially tackled while the ball was in mid-air. If you paid attention to the sideline, Reid did the most coaching in a game he has probably ever done, even putting in some input on the defensive side of the ball.
Offseason moves NEED to include letting go of G. Lewis and LJ Smith. Please re-sign Dawkins, Runyan, and Tra. These three deserve another try at this after this bull call that cost this city its first football championship in decades. And for God's sake, do not say that Reid and/or McNabb need to go.
P.S. Keep David Akers too.
