So instead of beating your head against your keyboard this Monday morning following yet another trainwreck Eagles loss, enjoy this read to take your mind off things temporarily. Instead of replacing the political sign on your lawn with a "Fire Andy" one, and before you hop right onto that Nick Foles bandwagon, take a moment to enjoy that despite Donovan McNabb's ignorance to the NFL tie a few years back, he is not alone. Donovan now has a new activity to occupy his time that normally consists of him sitting at home thinking of ways to convince the football world of his relevance and deserved spot in the Hall of Fame; having a good laugh at his former coach's first 5 game losing streak of his career. Well Mr. McNabb, you can also enjoy the fact that while the football world gasped and awed when you didn't know football games could end in a tie (and here in Philadelphia, we just *FACEPALMED* and shook our heads in embarrassment), your fellow NFLers didn't take note and learn from your mistake. On Sunday, following a 24-24 tie between the St. Louis Rams and San Francisco 49ers, current Rams wideout and former Eagle Danny Amendola admitted to Peter King of Sports Illustrated that he was unaware that NFL games could end in a tie. When McNabb made the famous blunder in 2008, Amendola was on the Eagles practice squad. I am not making this up. And if it's any consolation, San Francisco safety Dashon Goldson was also unaware of the rules of his profession. "I didn't know you could tie. When I saw both sides walking onto the field, I was like 'Where's everybody going?'" I guess I should have altered my intro to this article. Commence your keyboard head banging. Because think of how your boss would react if you publically admitted to not knowing the rules of how your company operated (hint: PINK SLIP).
