Skins98Orakpo Posted September 3, 2010 Share Posted September 3, 2010 Found this on ESPN.com. Bill Simmons asks, "Which QB would you go to war with?" Donovan McNabb is ranked 7th best QB. One ahead of Eli Manning and one behind Tony Romo sits to pee. Here is what he said about them: COURAGE UNDER FIRE8. Eli Manning, Giants He'd be six spots lower if not for the Helmet Catch. That play continues to kill me. Super Bowl XLII randomly came on the NFL Network this summer; I hadn't watched it since I saw it live. Totally forgot that, for four straight plays, the Pats could have ended the game. Fourth-and-1, NYG 37, 1:34 left: Handoff up the middle to Brandon Jacobs. Vince Wilfork slides over to plug the hole and would have … but he slips and falls down. Jacobs gets 2 yards. First-and-10, NYG 39, 1:28 left: Heavy pressure on Eli, slips out of the pocket, scrambles right with Adalius Thomas chasing him, and even as it's happening, you're thinking, "I have seen this play happen 2,500 times, and every time it happens, the linebacker karate-chops the QB's right arm from behind, causes a fumble and falls on it," but in this case, of course, Thomas' chop fails to totally dislodge the ball and Eli juggles it before falling on it. Timeout, Giants. Second-and-5, NYG 44, 1:20 left: Manning sails a deep out over David Tyree's head to All-Pro cornerback Asante Samuel, who screws up his jump and lets the title-clinching pick go through his hands. Third-and-5, NYG 44, 1:15 left: The Helmet Catch. Made by a player who never caught another pass during a professional football game. (I'll be right back. Just going to pour a shot of scotch.) 7. Donovan McNabb, Redskins Put it this way: If the ignominy of getting traded within his division doesn't inspire one of his greatest seasons, then maybe he wasn't so great to begin with. 6. Tony Romo sits to pee, Cowboys Put it this way: I'd rather have him as my fantasy QB than my real QB.
