Off the field, Freddie Mitchell did everything he could to bring as much attention to himself as possible. On the field, the 25th overall pick was one of the biggest busts in Eagles history.
His problems started in 2001 when he had difficulty learning the Eagles playbook and barely played as a rookie. He caught just 90 passes for 1,263 yards and five touchdowns in four seasons, and instead chose to sit down at interviews and thank his hands for "being so great."
Leading up to Super Bowl XXXIX against the New England Patriots, he stated that he didn't know the names of the Patriots secondary, just the numbers. He then intentionally stated each of their numbers incorrectly. After the Super Bowl, he said that the Eagles would have won if McNabb had gotten the ball to him more (and Owens less) and the Eagles would beat the Patriots eight out of 10 times. He also said that the Patriots reminded him of little girls.
He is remembered (and loved) for catching 4th-and-26. He also caught LJ Smith's fumble in the end zone in the 2004 divisional playoffs. And he was on the receiving end of a 60-yard pass play after Donovan McNabb scrambled around for 14.1 seconds against the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football in 2004.
