Quote of the Day

Rich Hofmann, making sense on McNabb:

DONOVAN McNABB has done this before, happy and joking on the eve of the NFC Championship Game. It was true in 2002 and it was true in 2005 and it is true in 2009. It is not all that predictive about how things will turn out.

He will play well or not, and the Eagles will win the game or not, and it will not be about demeanor. It will not be about smiling through a bad moment or picking up a sideline telephone or jokes on the Wednesday before. We're all past that at this point, right?

Mind reading with this guy is pointless. Sentence parsing is a total waste of time. There is no predicting. The past is not prologue. The future is not destined. Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals will be 3 hours in isolation.

I can't tell you how much I'm rooting for McNabb to steamroll through these last two games and shut all the idiots up, from Limbaugh on down. Imagine the smile then.
