Brian Westbrook Ankle Injuryby Doug
Brian The Eagle dominated Pittsburgh but may have lost a key player. Brian Westbrook twisted his ankle. and all I have to say is ouch. I how really hope he has an ankle sprain of sort that will heal easily and quickly. The Eagles and Eagles Fans will have a long season if the injury is serious. Last I heard was that he will have an MRI some time this morning. I think everyone would agree though, Correll Buckhalter did a great job when Westbrook went down.
Beside the injury to Westbrook the game was awesome. The Eagles defense owned Ben Roethlisberger. With a total of nine sacks I sure he was flinching and jumping in his sleep last night. Brian Dawkins had a flying leap to bat the ball from Roethlisberger and recovered the fumble. Go Dawk way to show the you will play football at only the highest level.
On the way in this morning I was listening to 610 sports radio. The morning crew had Ray Didinger on. Ray had talked about the Eagles defensive success yesterday against the Steelers. He talked about the possibly othe the Eaglesdefense being more aggressive in future games. Man would that be great to have a few more games this season with 5 to 10 sacks?!
A bit of Philadelphia Eagles history was also made in yesterday’s game. Donavan McNabb became the Eagles all time leading quarterback for the number of touchdown passes with 176. Way to go I love to see great Philly sports history.
