There’s nothing better than watching a game with a player. It sure beats the guy who thinks he played, sits next to you while you’re watching games and drives you nuts.
Here’s a perfect example. Willie McGinest was just saying, “Watch the slant, watch the slant,” as the Cardinals were driving with 3:30 to go in the first half.
What happened? QB Kurt Warner threw the slant, Eagles CB Asante Samuel wasn’t in the right place and got a “P.I.” (Willie’s term for pass interference). On the next play, Warner found WR Larry Fitzgerald on the other side of the end zone for a touchdown.
Despite what I might think about the Eagles getting tight because of the score, Willie says he doesn’t think so. His take is that since the Eagles are a passing team and now they have to pass, they’re OK.
The officials just announced that the kickoff going out of bounds, possibly off DE Victor Abiamiri‘s leg, wasn’t reviewable. Fans are still booing five minutes later.
