    Wow, it's gotten to the point where you STILL talk trash, even after losing the game, doing nothing on the field, and having the guy you called out play the best game of the SUper Bowl. And this time, he goes after Jacksonville, coach Belicheck, and even his own teammate, Terrell Owens, who actually showed some guts and played pretty well. Amazing how 1 catch for 11 yards gives you carte blanche to call out everyone, including the best player on your team and the team that just knocked you around in the *** le game. He also complained about the price of a hotel room for the SUper Bowl. Hey, ass-stick, what about the price of your salary for making one catch? I'll take Owens over this assclown any day...at least he can play.

    Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Freddie Mitchell was muzzled pretty well by the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XXXIX. But Mitchell is still trying to get in the last word.

    </td> <td width="225">[font=Times,serif][/font][font=Times,serif]Freddie Mitchell on Terrell Owens in Super Bowl XXXIX[/font]</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <!---------------------PULL-QUOTE TABLE (END)--------------------> On Wednesday, Mitchell sounded off on ESPN Radio's AllNight with Todd Wright, not only defending the disparaging remarks he made about the Patriots' defensive backs prior to the Super Bowl, but taking it a step further and calling out the Patriots again.

    Mitchell had admitted to ESPN anchor Dan Patrick days before the game that he knew only the numbers of the Patriots' defensive backs (he then listed them incorrectly). Mitchell also managed to call out safety Rodney Harrison, saying, "I got something for you, Harrison."

    Mitchell was later reprimanded by Eagles coach Andy Reid and was not granted a podium for media interviews in Jacksonville.

    On Wednesday, Mitchell need no such podium to take more shots at the NFL champions.

    "It was kind of like me being facetious and kidding around. They blew it way out of proportion," Mitchell said of his pregame comments. "[Their reactions] reminded me of little girls. They're sensitive. Real, real sensitive.

    "Now the thing that bothers me the most is you've got everybody talking now. ... I've got [Patriots coach Bill] Belichick even throwing remarks about me. It's like, 'Man, did I hurt you that bad that you have to go out and shout my name?' Troy Brown saying something, Mr. Belichick saying a little something. It's funny how I got under their skin."

    Mitchell wasn't able to get "under their skin" on the field, however, with just one reception for 11 yards. He had one fewer catch than Harrison, who intercepted Donovan McNabb twice.

    But to hear Mitchell on Wednesday, even that wasn't his fault. Mitchell argued that the surprising play of Terrell Owens contributed to his own minimal contribution.

    "T.O., he came and did an excellent job ... but that really took away from my play time and my opportunities," Mitchell said. "I couldn't shut a lot of people up that I wanted to shut up. That really hurt the situation."

    <!---------------------INLINE TABLE (BEGIN)-------------------->

    <table id="inlinetable" align="right" border="0" cellpadding="3" cellspacing="1" width="200"> <tbody><tr><th colspan="1" style="background-color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">FedEx eyes "FredEx" wear</th> </tr><tr style="background-color: rgb(236, 236, 236);" valign="top"> <td width="184"> Freddie Mitchell has been selling shirts and caps with a "FredEx" logo on his Freddiemitchell.com Web site, and FedEx has noticed. The delivery service will approach the matter "in a courteous manner," FedEx spokesman Jim McCluskey told the Philadelphia Inquirer, noting that FedEx is the official shipper of the NFL. McCluskey added, however, "If we do find a violation of our brand, we'll ask that it stop."

    At least to the untrained eye, the "FredEx" logo looks as though someone simply added an "r" to the trademarked FedEx logo, even including the subtle arrow in the "Ex" portion -- a detail that caught the design world's eye when Lindon Leader created the logo in 1994, according to the Inquirer.



    </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <!---------------------INLINE TABLE (END)--------------------> Owens had nine catches for 122 yards in his first game since undergoing surgery six weeks ago for his severely injured ankle. Still, Mitchell is confident he'll get his chance to be "in the position to make a play or ... to be the marquee guy." Despite Owens' unexpected production -- he was the Eagles' leading receiver in the loss -- Mitchell believes it was the television analysts who placed too much emphasis on Owens.

    "[The analysts] think they know it all. ... T.O. is just on a pedestal, and everybody else is pretty much peasants.

    "I think when they get to the realization that one player cannot beat a whole team and we won [in the playoffs] without T.O. We got to the Super Bowl without T.O. We can win without T.O. I think that they'll educate themselves more and they'll know that could happen."

    In the days since the Eagles loss, much of the media attention has shifted to McNabb and his teammates' claims he was sick to his stomach during the fourth quarter of the game.

    Center Hank Fraley, in a TV interview, said that McNabb nearly puked in the huddle in the final minutes of the game and had trouble calling plays to the team. Fraley said at one point Mitchell had to call the play for McNabb.

    Mitchell offered his take on what happened.

    "Donovan, he dry heaves a lot when he gets under certain situations. It's happened before. It's happened in the NFC Championship game.

    "He was dry heaving and he couldn't get the words out in the play, so he gave me hand signals. ... I basically called the play and knew what the coaches were thinking in that situation. I called the play out and went on from there."

    Mitchell added, with a laugh, that if he were in that situation again, he'd have called a different play, one in which he was the intended receiver.

    Mitchell also had some choice remarks about the Super Bowl itself and where it was played.

The whole Super Bowl has become such a monopoly to make money rather than the game. I think they've gotten away from the game ... It's basically all about making money than anything else. I don't think nobody cares about the game anymore."

    As for the host city, Mitchell said: "Jacksonville had five years to prepare for this, and even with the preparing is it was a bad situation, and I can't believe the NFL handled it like that."

    He added: "What really annoyed me was Jacksonville, the city, taking advantage of it. The Comfort Inn suites were $500 a night for a regular room. Just the players' families -- everybody really got taken advantage of."

    Maybe he should thank his foot for tasting so good when he shoved it in his mouth?



    The sad thing is that he may have an actual valid argument about the host city rapping people by charging 500 bones a night for a plain room at a comfort in...:susp:

    After trashing Owens, they'd better cut him outright. Can't wait to see him catch 18 balls for 228 yards for a different team next year :lol:

    I think Bill Belichick summed up Freddy nicely afterwards: (from this week's SI)

    "All he does is talk. He's terrible. I was glad when he was in the game."

    STFU, Freddy.

    Jaxbuck I hate tsun ‘18 Fantasy Baseball Champ

    Man I thought his pre game smack was funny to tell the truth, he seemed to be almost saying it tounge in cheek. This is just bullshit.

    I'd say he's close to being as big a headcase as Moss after all this, too bad he has about 1/1000000th of Moss's talent.

    Maybe they can both get traded to Baltimore and the NFL can just go ahead and make that team the official ex-con/punk team to make it easier for the rest of us to focus our hate and loathing.

    Throw Pvt Winslow in, make Leon from Budweiser the team mascot and you've pretty much got the dickhead Dream Team.

    I'm all for that. They already have 3/4 of the scum of the earth anyway. If they could somehow trade Ed Reed to pick up Moss and Mitchell, they would officially be the Baltimore Asstowels (Deion, Ray Lewis, Jamaal Lewis, etc., etc., etc....)

    Hey, we already know all about that. Half their team was on the bench when they came to the 'Shoe in '99. :lol: Those guys associating themselves with the handicapped is an insult to the handicapped. UCLA did the impossible: they made Steve Bellisari look like a good QB.
