The Eagles were well represented in the 2010 Pro Bowl in terms of numbers, but how about performance?
It’s easy to see who stood out most for the Eagles. You probably could have guessed who it was going to be before the game even started. It was the same guy that stood out all season for the Eagles and he didn’t let anyone down in his last performance in an Eagles helmet for the season. DeSean Jackson recorded six catches on the night for 101 yards and scored twice for the NFC. He showed the explosiveness he has all season and you could tell he was having a good time. Anyone see the tackle he had on James Harrison?
Donovan McNabb failed to impress anyone. He only completed three passes on the night and was intercepted by Brian Dawkins (how bout that). McNabb did throw for a touchdown but it was only because of the effort Jackson made on the play. I was disappointed by the way McNabb performed. If he does end up staying in Philly, he better have his best offseason ever out in Arizona.
Staying on the offensive side of the ball, Jason Peters and Leonard Weaver didn’t accumulate any stats (Weaver did have one tackle). However, this was expected. The Pro Bowl is more about flash so you didn’t expect Weaver to get a bunch of carries and pound the middle. The line gave up three sacks on the night and I don’t think any came from Peters’ side.
Defensively, the highlight of the night was definitely the interception by Asante Samuel which he returned 35 yards. Surprisingly, he did not record any tackles. Quintin Mikell recorded three tackles on the day and Trent Cole recorded one as well.
I don’t believe Jon Dorenbos screwed up any snaps, and David Akers hit two field goals and four extra points on the evening.
The NFC lost, but it was a pretty good night for the Eagles.
