For those of you who are too young to remember Duck Hunt, you should have watched Thursday night’s NFL game.
It was all the bit-rate thrill of that single-digit bit game for the (original) Nintendo and, when it was over, one team resembled the duck that got away and the other was stripped and shredded limb-from-limb, feather-from-feather.
Without Michael Vick, the Philadelphia Eagles are so bad that they lost to the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday night. With Vick, they… well, they would have probably lost, too.
Vick wouldn’t have thrown the four interceptions that his replacement Vince Young did. STILL, the Seahawks clearly outplayed an Eagles team that is battered, bittered, and – to be perfectly honest, and we can – brutal. And, of course, Vince Young has been called many things, but he has never been called a loser. Even as this throwing yards have remained stagnant and low for his entire career, Young has won games and many of them have been with an “okay-to-mediocre-to-sometimes-great” Tennessee Titans team, where he started his career during the 2006 season.
The Seahawks, meanwhile, improved to 5-7, one game better than the Eagles, and nobody expected that. They were having fun, while the Eagles were worrying about their image and worried about being embarassed. So, as Vince Young was throwing four picks, Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch was running for 148 yards and two touchdowns.
And, that’s how you win and lose football games.
