A Few Words for Freddie Mitchell

First, a quick intro for those of you who do not watch PTI or listen to sports talk radio. Freddie Mitchell is a wide receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles. He was once a first round pick out of UCLA, but has barely cracked the starting lineup in his pro career. Nonetheless, he has managed to make a name for himself through his flambouyant clothes and ridiculous on-field antics.

Ever since star wideout, Terrell Owens got injured seven weeks ago, Mitchell has not been able to keep his yap shut. After one playoff game, Fred Ex told reporters that he "had to thank his hands for being so great." Mitchell, aka The People's Champ, continued to run his mouth in the weeks leading up to the Super Bowl. When asked by an ESPN reporter to name the Patriots secondary, he was unable to and wasn't the slightest bit embarassed about that. The only name he could come up with was Rodney Harrison. After pulling this name from the deep recesses of his mind, Mitchell added, "Harrison, I got something for you."

Yeah, right! My grandfather once said that it ain't braggin' if you can back it up. Somebody should have told that to Fred Ex. When the final gun sounded at the Super Bowl, Rodney Harrison had actually caught twice as many of Donovan McNabb's passes than Mitchell. Nicely done, Fred.
