Donovan McNabb was all smiles before Philly’s NFC wild card playoff game with the Cowboys. That was until the game started and Dallas’ defense pressured him all night to the tune of four sacks and several hurries. Before all the harassment began, McNabb was rocking out in the tunnel as he walked with his teammates onto the field at Cowboys Stadium. He also was messing around with a Dallas fan. It was a funny spectacle, well worth a watch:
McNabb’s going to take a lot of heat for his lackluster performance in the game but it’s hard to put too much blame on him — the entire team was dominated by the Cowboys for the second straight week. Philly’s offense never got anything going and really only had one big play for about three quarters (Vick’s TD pass to Maclin). Much of the credit goes to Dallas’ defense for the pressure they apply to the quarterback. Remember, that Cowboys defense not only harassed McNabb all night, but they also were the first and really only team to stop the Saints passing attack. Philly’s defense didn’t play too badly but they gave up too many big plays and were put in bad spots by the inept offense. Dallas looks like a legit Super Bowl team the way they’re playing.
