I must say, it's really too bad that a) that hit was helmet to helmet and b) McGahee got hurt and was carted off - because barring those two things, that might have been the hit of the century. Was it dirty? I don't think so, Clark just ducked his head to hit McGahee. But was it illegal? Hoo boy, you better it believe it. Despite what Phil Simms thinks, I'm 100% certain that you can't hit a player helmet-to-helmet anywhere on the field. I think Clark has to at least get fined for it, no?
And while we're on the subject, I think this pretty much confirms what I've suspected all along - Phil Simms is functionally retarded. He's clearly graduated from the broadcasting school of "Just Saying Random Words While Trying to Prove a Point." Say what you will about guys like Kornheiser, Aikman and Baldinger but Simms is far and away the worst broadcaster in football.
But how about those Cardinals of Arizona? That was quite a game, it certainly made up for the late game being mostly a snoozer. And it's obviously been a long time since I've watched an Eagles game because I forgot that Donovan McNabb really isn't very good. Not sure how I forgot that. It's a good thing the Cardinals pulled that one out in the end, at least we have a shot at a decent Super Bowl now. If the Eagles had somehow stolen that game they would have been wiped off the face of the Earth by the Steelers.
And now we only have two weeks of completely manufactured media stories before we actually get a football game.
