Halftime Score: Redskins 10, Eagles 7

LANDOVER, Md. -- Donovan McNabb, repeat after us: "You are not Dan Marino. Spike the ball."

This after Trent Cole took a sure three points off the board for the Redskins with a forced fumble sack. McNabb did a great job moving the Eagles into sure-fire field goal range for David Akers, but the quarterback for the second time in three weeks made a fatal error with clock management.

He pretended to spike to the ball as the clock would down ... 10, 9, 8 ... but it looked like his teammates had no clue he was trying to pull a fast one by the Skins, and the Redskins sacked a virtually defenseless McNabb.

And once again, the clock ticked down as McNabb tried to kill the clock with time left for a field goal attempt. It's going to be interesting to hear Andy Reid put the blame on himself for that snafu at tomorrow's day-after press conference.

totally agree... either McNabb spikes the ball or he gets everyone else up to speed on his fake!

FB again--how many QB's do you know -would have done such an idiotic thing--but he does it again and again and again --too damned much of that soup--he should worry? between his $115 million and lucrative soup commercials--who cares--and monday nights fiasco--there you go--
