Brian Dawkins, Kurt Warner, and Matt Birk, are the three players up for Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award. Dawkins says, "That's huge. Take a look
at the list of guys who have won that award, and you're going to see
some very upstanding and great character people. They are all very
caring individuals, and the guy who the award is named after is the
embodiment of that. It would be a great honor that I would really
cherish if I'm able to win that."
Jim Johnson's back is hurting and whether he'll coach again from up high on Sunday is a game time decision. Johnson also mentions the likelihood of seeing more Mike Patterson and Brodrick Bunkley than we saw on Turkey Day due to Edgerin James reemergence.
On the crowd noise and whether the roof will be open: "We don't know if the roof is going to be open or closed right now, and
we really don't care," Mornhinweg said. "I think Jamaal [Jackson, the
center] does a good job, and I think Donovan changes it up pretty well,
and so we've been pretty good that way. I think we're one of the top
offenses with lack of penalties . . . Now, all that doesn't matter for
this game; we have to get it done in this game."
On The DL Podcast catches up with Ed Rendell and talks politics but sneaks in a few Eagles/Steelers questions. Listen here. I believe the Gov even discussing that Mayor's Bet crap is premature and stupid. $.02
Jordan Sparks, some American Idol chick I've never heard of, will sing the national anthem on Sunday.
Why would any Philadelphian be a fan of the Cardinals? Tom Tupa and Tecmo Super Bowl, of course.
The Iggles aren't taking the Cards lightly. You can tell many of the players on this team have been here before and know the right things to say. "There is no time for looking past anybody," Brian Dawkins said. "We're
on the road, in hostile environment. We're not looking at that last
game and thinking the same thing is going to happen again. We
understand it's going to be tough to win and we will have to have our
A-game to do it."
