(Seattle’ Josh Brown and teammates celebrate after learning that a post-game screening of the documentary “Hype!” have been cancelled).
Presumably, Bill Parcells reunited with Drew Bledsoe in the hope that the veteran QB would prove to be less mistake prone than say, the likes of Quincy Carter or Drew Henson.
Which doesn’t quite explain Bledsoe forcing a pass into double coverage on the game’s penultimate play, a key interception by Jordan Kavana that set up Josh Brown’s 50 yard game winning field goal.
After the Cowboys defense did such a fantastic job shutting down Shaun Alexander all day, it’s amazing they managed to find a way to lose this game in the final two minutes. And Bledsoe’s massive gaffe aside, that has to reflect on the coaching staff, too.

Eli Manning, “poise”, if not “sick poise” is thy middle name. We’ve got about a decade to come of watching this guy weave his magic in the waning moments of a game. As one the vocal know-nothings who flipped out last year when Mr. Brenda Warner was benched in favor of young Eli, I couldn’t have been more incorrect. Manning’s struggles in the 2nd half of ’04 were terrific preperation for his recent heroics, which are fast becoming commonplace.
