The announcers keep whining about a late hit... but for all the defender knew, McNabb could have tripped over his own man.

Philly is challenging -- they'll get the call. Mitchell caught that ball.

Better to do it now and hopefully get the 3 pts rather than maybe not needing them at all later.

They need points and badly. They can't go into the half down 7+ to 0 against this D.

That late hit is an absolute disgrace. Not only is it dirty, but for the refs to miss it is unacceptable.

Yeah I agree, he went in hard but I think the Panthers were thinking "McNabb might get up and kill us, so let's make sure he's down."

I mean down for the play, not the game of course

Waste????

That puts them in better position for 3 points. Tough FG without the yards.

I wouldn't call that a waste of challenge. They need the 3PTS and that was an obvious catch.


Still, with that said, does anyone else think the NFL needs to change the rules on the challenge? I say, if you win it, you get to keep your challegen, instead of losing it.

Well, yeah, if Akers can make the kick. Everytime I see him play he shanks them.

Well except last week.

Oh please, if a QB's lying on the ground, you touch him, you don't dive into him head-first. There's also a little thing called the whistle.

no way is it a wasted challenge for 1 reason

because his players were pleading for him to make the challenge.. and he has to show faith in them

Was it 41 or 51 yards? TV says 41, sportsline says 51.

See, now in my idea NFL, the Eagles would of not lost a challenge, due to the fact they won the challenge. Eh?!?! Brilliant, isn't it?!?!? Why punish the team that was correct? If you do it my way, it encourages coaches to challenge things they know they can win, which influences the game overall.

Damn, I'm good!

I'm certainly not saying it was acceptable. I'm just trying to figure out what the refs were thinking, not the Panthers.
