Brian Westbrook’s five greatest plays

Now that he’s no longer an Eagle, Philly.com put together a list of Brian Westbrook’s five greatest plays.

I personally like #2, even though the play cost my fantasy football team win.

2. The game: Dec. 16, 2007, vs. Dallas Cowboys at Texas Stadium
The setup: The Eagles led, 10-6, with 2:19 left and had the ball on the Dallas 25-yard line.
The play: Westbrook took a handoff and went off right tackle to the 1-yard line, where he took a knee.
What it meant: Dallas was out of timeouts and the Eagles took three kneeldowns to close out the victory.
What he said: “I got a stern talking-to by Jon Runyan right before that play. He said, ‘Listen, if you get down to the 1, take a knee.’ I was like, ‘Ahhh … ‘ He said, ‘Take a knee, Westbrook, take a knee.’ ”

That play was frustrating from a fantasy football point of view, but the right thing to do.
