Anyone watching the Eagles-Redskins game Sunday night might've wondered why WR Todd Pinkston pulled up short on a long pass over the middle from Donovan McNabb. Apparently he lost it in the lights. I was watching the play in question, and unless "I lost it in the lights" is a euphemism for "I stopped running because I didn't want to get the stuffing knocked out of me by the safety," then I'm not convinced. To make matters worse, Joe Theismann spent the next few minutes accusing Pinkston of having "alligator body." Nice. (free registration/bugmenot required)
The Vikings' quarterback seemed to regress in his second season. Did that tell us more about the player, or the Minnesota offensive scheme?
