The Late, Great, T.O.

The man was one hour late for yesterdays game at the Linc, arriving less than an hour before kick off.

"I really didn't expect the traffic to be so hectic. I got off on the Pattison exit, saw the traffic, and ended up going on the shoulder, and I really didn't know which way to go - during preseason I always went back home and then came back instead of coming straight from the team hotel. I asked one of the policemen which way to go and he was like, 'Dude, you're not going to make it. Let me call an escort for you.' Thank goodness for that."

But he made ...

* Three touchdown catches, including the Iggles 1st, 2nd, and 4th of the season, with 2 in the first period.

* Eight receptions for 68 yards.

* An instant connection with the fans, many already wearing No. 81 game jerseys.

* The offense open up so McNabb could complete 18 other throws to six other Iggles, , kicked off the year with a 137.5 QB rating, and Brian Westbrook, the one headed monster with the other 2 monsters gone had his 1st ever 100 yard game on the ground on 17 carries.

T.0. was not fined for being late.

Wise to keep in mind we were playing the not so giant, Giant's, but tune in on next Monday night against the Viking's on their home field for the Donovan and T.O. Show.

Oh, yeah, First Down Freddie caught a pass in heavy traffic (and dropped one he called a BULLET). He had the quote of the day:

"We've got T.O. in the house now, baby."

T.O., who definitely does not have crocodile arms, said:

"That's what I'm here for. I'm always thinking about putting on a show. I was in such a zone today, I didn't even hear the crowd screaming for me during introductions. But I'm looking forward to everything. The routes I was running were deep routes, not those 10-to-15-yard-over-the-middle routes, because I had a quarterback who could get me the ball. And all of the guys were feeding off off that. So this entire situation is everything I ever dreamed about. I'm getting mine, other guys are getting theirs, and we're winning. I think everybody is happy with that, but I know I am. So let the games begin."

"Tee-Ohhh... Tee-Ohhh..."

Welcome back, Joe, and congratulations to you and your fans:
