ARE simply had a bad day catching the ball, normally he's pretty sure handed so I'll give him a pass for now. He helped make up for it with that TD toss.

I agree, and he ran that play perfectly. He sold the run well, and was patient enough to wait for Cooley to get open.

A lot of times, when that play is run, players will show their hand too early by running laterally and not tucking the ball. ARE ran towards the line of scrimmage and didn't show pass until just the right time. It's a hard play to execute, and he did it very well.

On a related note, does anyone else think that McNabb throws a very uncatchable ball? I mean he sees zones very well but his completion percentage is always far below where it should be in Reid's offense. It's cliche to blame the receivers over this, but we've seen 8+ years of WR turnover and Philly, and no one can really catch his passes.

I mean, yeah Greg Lewis sucks, but at somepoint, doesn't the blame for not adjusting come back at McNabb?

They used to say the same thing in Atlanta. Vick never had any decent receivers, blah blah blah. Matt Ryan seems to be doing just fine with them. McNabb has an ugly habit of throwing the ball directly into the ground or 3 feet over his receiver's head. Always has, and at this point in his career, he probably always will.
