Garcia rallies from mistakes, leads Eagles to third straight win
By LES BOWEN
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Marty Mornhinweg wouldn't divulge what he said to Jeff Garcia after the Eagles' quarterback took an unfortunate taunting penalty, then threw an even more unfortunate interception two plays later. The pick led to a touchdown that gave the New York Giants a one-point lead, along with what seemed to be control of the game midway through the fourth quarter yesterday.
Mornhinweg said he knew what to expect from Garcia the next time he got the ball, though.
'He's a tough man. He's got great strength mentally and physically... he's pretty good in those situations,' the offensive coordinator said after Garcia led the Eagles on an eight-play, 80-yard drive that restored their lead, Garcia hitting Reggie Brown with a 19-yard, game-winning touchdown pass with 2 minutes, 57 seconds remaining.
Had a great day yesterday after all. Eagles won and so did I.
Got to see a friend of mine this afternoon and pick up a cool 200 clams!
Dallas Chowboyz next week! And, yes, I'll be wearing the shirt!
