Quintin Mikell, like Donovan McNabb, did not make the trip to Foxboro with the team on Sunday night. Instead, Mikell watched the game at his home where he could hear what Tom Brady was calling at the line of scrimage.
Mikell said he could tell from what Tom Brady was barking
out from behind center that the Patriots quarterback was fooled by the
Eagles' blitz package. "I wanted to get on the phone and tell somebody,
but you can't do that," Mikell said.
He found himself yelling at his television. "I scared my son a
couple times and he started crying," Mikell said. "I had to calm down."
Hilarious. An amazing tidbit that shows that Mikell is both passionate and just like the rest of us when it comes to watching games (screaming at A.J. Feeley after his 2nd pick).
Mikell and McNabb's status for Sunday against the Seahawks is still up in the air.
