So we likely saw the nails officially getting smacked into this season's coffin yesterday, and it sure was an ugly turnoverfest. Some fans are wondering why Andy Reid didn't change up the gameplan to do anything to keep the ball out of Lofa Tatupu's hands (mostly by first keeping it out of A.J. Feeley's). Big Red's inability to make adjustments has been one of the biggest areas of criticism directed at him this season. But at least he didn't call back-to-back timeouts. Misterirrelevant.com kicks off our Monday Extras with another Joe Gibbs senior moment:
Joe Gibbs didn’t know that you can’t call back-to-back timeouts.
So, instead of attempting a 51 yarder, Lindell knocked in a chip shot
to beat the Skins with four seconds left in a game they were winning
from the opening possession.
