PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Eagles produce a weekly web cartoon about the week’s game. Last week’s edition focused on Angelo Cataldi and his pie delivery. This week’s edition takes aim at the Lions.

The folks over at CBS Detroit weren’t too happy with it.

“With a league-worst passing defense, the Eagles may be hearing Lions fans saying “Touchdown!” frequently on Sunday as the Lions bring their conference-best passing offense to town,” CBS Detroit says.  “And with Calvin “Megatron” Johnson on the verge of the all-time Lions franchise receiving record, they may also hear chants of “M-V-P”, and it won’t be for one of their players.”

The league’s worst passing defense may have some fun with a quarterback who has thrown ten interceptions in the last five weeks, including four in one game two weeks ago.

That’s why they play the games.
