FredEX on the Anniversary of 4th and 26, Kills Five

Freddie_mitchell_4th_26
Timmy Mac over at Philly Sports Daily has the story.  So full of win.

First of all Donovan’s pass was behind me and it was wobbly, but I had to take advantage of the opportunity that was presented to me. Right when I caught the pill, I kind of knew I had the yardage right away. I looked at the sticks and to see where I was at and I knew I got it. I felt like Michael Jordan hitting a last-second shot or Tiger Woods sinking a 50-foot putt.

Then I had to pull out the belt…

That was for the crowd. Not a single person left that stadium when we were down, and I had to do something for them. Hugh Douglas used to say, “That’s the People’s Champ. He does it every time for the fans.” I had to put the belt on for them. I was brought up like Brian Dawkins, with a love for Philly. When he heard the Eagles fans scream that was like church music to him. That’s how I was. I was doing it for love while Donovan was doing it to prove people wrong for booing him.

 

In a way, I kind of miss this man.  Read the rest and his not-so-thinly veiled criticism of McNabb at PSD.

  1. ThE title might wanna say “rips five” or “rips mcnabb”. I read it thinking he snapped and went on a murder spree.

  2. It’s kind of funny. I just went back to watch the replay, and if McNabb doesn’t throw it behind him, Charles Woodson knocks it down or even could pick it off.

  3. You were expecting Freddie Mitchell of all people to understand the nature and reasoning for a back shoulder throw?
