    I didn't watch the game, so I can't say whether or not he was effective. I'll take your word for it.

    I was just surprised that he threw for more yards than McNabb, but had 35 less points.

    I ask this question a lot, but has that ever happened before? Losing by 35 or more points, but having more passing yards than your opponent?
    I'm sure it has, but it must be very rare.

    i think the 440 yards was a Lion single game QB record. The reason for the point differential is because eagles got over 150 yards on the ground to go with McNabb's passing yardage and the Liars got less than 40.

    To add to the misery the lions made it to the red zone on at least four occassions where they came up empty due to a missed field goal, two fumbles and an interception. That's 12 to 28 points that they missed out on. I think there may have been another op in the red zone too that was not converted.

    Finally the way the way the Eagle uniforms looked, I can see why the Lions purposely missed tackling them.:)

    I heard their unis looked horrible. But those are the state colours.
    Huge, HUGE losse by Lions. Makes that 5 turnover win over Vikes look wonderful.
    I agree with some of that high risk stuff if you're borderline awlful. But turnovers sway momemtum.

    The Eagles aren't doing as well this week.

    They're down 16-3 against the 1 and 2 Giants in the 4th Quarter.

    McNabb is 11 of 24 for 95 yards, 4.0 average, with no TDs or INTs. He has 2 fumbles and has been sacked NINE times.

    Kevin "Lion Killer" Curtis has 2 catches for 21 yards.

    Brian "Broken Tackle" Westbrook is out.
