Flashback: Eagles Chiefs 2005

This was a great game. In a season full of turmoil, the week 4 game against the Kansas City Chiefs was an all time classic. It is a very enjoyable game to watch despite the fact that TO was still an Eagle.

Hollis Thomas was starting at DT, Keith Adams was the WILL Linebacker, Michael Lewis was the SS, Artis Hicks was the starting LG, Hank Fraley was the Center, Dhani Jones was the SAM LinebackerTodd France was the kicker, and Andy Reid took his love for passing the football to an all time high.

It’s sad to see Paul Grasmanis in this game, because it would be the last of his career. He leaves the field on a cart with a ruptured Achilles tendon.

One play that really stands out is where Jared Allen had a sure sack, but was unable to bring McNabb down. With Allen hanging at McNabb’s ankles, Donovan throws a strike to long snapper Mike Bartrum for a touchdown.

When L.J. Smith pretending to shoot an arrow into the stands I lost it. That was probably the coolest thing Smith has done as an Eagle. It was hilarious.

Shawn Barber had some interesting comments about the Eagles conditioning habits. By the end of the game his comments just looked stupid.

    I took Adam to this game for hist birthday. It was a great game, too bad we lost. (The Loudest Stadium in the NFL). Loved seeing that Chiefs bar in Philly!

    I was a manager at the Hyatt during that time and lets just say there where a ton of Eagles fans that got arrested or noise complaints, lol.

    TO said it the best:

    “Because I love some me”

    That should be a quote that Eagles fans should remember…

    I watched the replay, mostly just to see LJ do his arrow celebration. Sucked they did not show it in the replay on nfl network.
