Now that's a good one there; a WR who did nothing at PR in Pop Warner, middle school, high school, or college, returning punts. In fact, the guy that year who was doing all the returns in camp and preseason was a late cut. It's a learned skill, not just something you throw someone into and hope for the best. But, this was obvious to everyone but Reid, until it had already cost us. THEN the change came.

That was it for me, too.

We didn't lose that game.

That whole process from beginning to end was amazing.
They drafted Jeremy Bloom who specialized in nothing BUT punt returns (and skiing). They they put him on fake IR for a year to get his body in shape for the NFL. Then they put him through training camp and preseason as THE guy.
...then after all that, they cut him and determined that you don't need anyone who specializes in PR and anyone can do it. So, let's just toss Greg Lewis out there.
....and then they re-signed Reno Mahe.

that and andy's brilliant drafting skills. bryan smith anyone ? yeah, lets use a second round pick on some guy from Nosepicker State because he has "great upside". That and drafting that cb from wisconsin (i think) jack igwanu... something or other. guy tore his knee up but we draft him anyways because we "think" he'll come back from it.
good riddance andy

My top 3.
3. The carousel of horrendus WR before TO. Johnson, Small, Stinkston, Trash, Na Brown, F Michell.
2. Playing not to lose in the NFC championship game vs Tampa...
1. After the loosing superbowl. The best the Andy could do in the offseason was resign J trotter and alienate TO.
1. Drafting...Mcdougle, Mitchell, Bunkley, Watkins...
2. Time management
3. Jaun Castidiot

Thats when you knew that Reid thought he was smarter then the game. He thought he didnt need talent because he could scheme them open.

TO showed up in the Super Bowl and had a better game than anyone else on the team.(WITH PINS AND SCREWS IN HIS ANKLE) McNabb upchucked his way to another close but no cigar finish.
I bet it went something like this:
TO said: Hey I showed up and he upchucked.
Can I have some of that personal security that he has because my contract is way back loaded and I wont even see much of my money for a while?
Eagles - NO we like McNAbb better than you because he is not a diva and he tows the company line.
TO - Fine I'll play for Dallas and go nowhere but neither will you because I was the missing piece that got you where you wanted to be.
McNabb had his BEST SEASON EVER with TO. Did the FO and AR really believe this wasnt because of TO?
The reality was that TO deserved the money and we refused to pay him. Bad judgement. TO had like 4 great years in Dal.
