Jimmy over at Blogging The Beast put up a post on the 5 dumbest NFC East plays of the last 20 years.
His list is solid. It got me to wondering if he missed any good ones. Here’s a couple I came up with.
1999 Bucs at Eagles – The Eagles got into position to try a FG, I think it was late in the half. Everything looked good except one thing. There were only 10 players on the field. The guy missing? PK Norm Johnson. That made for an odd moment.
1997 Giants / Skins – QB Gus Frerotte got excited after running for a short TD. Frerotte celebrated by head-butting the stadium wall. He injured his neck and had to go to the hosptial at halftime. The game ended in a 7-7 tie.
2006 Bucs at Eagles – Donovan McNabb completed a short pass to TE L.J. Smith in the Red Zone late in the 1st half. The problem, the Eagles were out of timeouts and Smith was stopped short of the endzone. The Eagles gave up 3 free points in a game that they lost on a last second 62-yard FG.
We certainly could nominate Felix Jones for his bonehead play last week. He caught a pass late in the game on 4th/20 and stepped out of bounds after about 10 yards. Apparently he forgot what down it was.
You guys got some other nominations?
