What Would Buddy Do?
Quintin Demps, that was the lamest attempt at a KillShot ™ we’ve ever seen

While it’s certainly old news at this point, as we deal with the altogether unpleasant realities of No More Eagles Football, it would be a dereliction of duties if we did not address an as-yet-unexplored aspect of Sunday’s game: Quintin Demps’ personal foul penalty.

It has been suggested that Demps’ after-the-play shot to Kurt Warner’s chest was intended to rattle the veteran QB, and even that this maneuver might have even been authorized by the Eagles’ coaching staff.  While I don’t believe that anyone called in a hit from the sideline, I’d still like to question Demps’ judgment.

That is, if you’re going to take the fifteen-yard penalty, why not make it worth it?!?!?!?  If you’re going to hit him, really hit him.  Make it a KillShot ™ and win the game.  Quintin, in the heat of the moment, you need to ask yourself: What Would Tony Siragusa do?  Why, he would pummel Rich Gannon (Kurt Warner), take the penalty, and make plans for the Super Bowl.

For shame, Quintin.  For shame.

Nobody but QDemps made that awful decision. Are there actually people who believe that it was authorized? What?

That was a move by a rookie in a big game possibly born of the fact that the old sage, Jim Johnson was not on the sideline. It was a dumb one. If you are gonna do that, make it look good…like on a blitz or something.

THat, I think, was the most emblamatic play of an afternoon wrought with mistakes and lack of discipline.

I think “Make it a Killshot” may soon replace “Give ‘em snot bubbles” in all pre-game, mid-game, and late-game pep talks from defensive captains throughout the league.

WWTSD? LOL - That was truly a personal fool penalty. Quintin looks to have been caught in that nexus between the moment being too big for him and not understanding how big the moment was. Stupid penalty but hopefully he can stuff that in his bag ‘o experience and pull it out at a later his career to hook us up in a big game.

As for the kill shot, whatever. You definitely want to make your penalties count but I’m not sure I want to see the Eagles have to knock the starting QB out to be able to beat the Cards. We can save that for Eli and Tony.
