Deuce McAllister of the New Orleans Saints and Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb are the FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week for games played on October 8-9, the NFL announced today.

McNabb had a 112.4 passer rating in the Eagles 38-24 victory over the Dallas Cowboys, completing 18 of 33 passes for 354 yards and two touchdowns. McNabb, who scored on a one-yard TD run in the second quarter, threw second-half touchdown passes of 40 and 87 yards.

McAllister carried 15 times for 123 yards and one touchdown in the Saints' 24-21 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He scored on a 24-yard run in the second quarter.

McNabb and McAllister were selected from among finalists in air and ground categories through 191,578 fan votes. The other FedEx Express NFL Player of the Week finalists were quarterbacks Damon Huard of the Kansas City Chiefs and Eli Manning of the New York Giants, while running backs Frank Gore of the San Francisco 49ers and Fred Taylor of the Jacksonville Jaguars were the other finalists for the FedEx Ground NFL Player of the Week.

McNabb received 48 percent of the fan votes for FedEx Express NFL Player of the Week, while Manning received 46 percent and Huard received 7 percent. McAllister's 75 percent of the fan votes for FedEx Ground NFL Player of the Week beat out Gore's 15 percent and Taylor's 10 percent.

Fans voted for more than their favorite players. The weekly FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week Awards are also a win for the local community. Along with the player awards, FedEx is awarding Children's Crisis Treatment Center and Children's Hospital of New Orleans, the children's hospitals in each winning market, a check for $5,000.

The children's hospitals in the two season-long winner's markets, announced at Super Bowl XLI in South Florida, will be awarded $25,000 each. That means that FedEx will deliver nearly $250,000 to local children's hospitals around the country in recognition of the FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week Award winners.

FedEx, the premier global provider of transportation, e-commerce and supply-chain management services, is the Official Delivery Service Sponsor of the NFL, Super Bowl and Pro Bowl. Through the weekly FedEx Air and Ground awards, FedEx recognizes those NFL players who represent the same speed, precision and teamwork that their customers have come to expect from the full range of FedEx air, ground, freight and international shipping services.

RE: DEUCE WINS BY A LANDSLIDE!!!!!

I wonder how long it's going to take other teams to realize that Reggie isn't our only weapon. With defenses chasing Reggie around when he doesn't even have the ball, Deuce has been having great games. I suppose when they quit doing that we'll see how good Reggie is.

IMO, we've already seen how good Reggie is. His stats just don't reflect it cause teams are all about game planning for him. I don't need any more proof whatsoever.

I wasn't doubting him at all. I believe he is why we are winning right now, stats or no stats. It's just that we really don't know just how great he will be until other teams quit playing just him.

The thing that Reggie's stats don't show are the first downs that he picks up. Joe Horn has the same situation going for him. He doesn't have touchdowns and he has mediocre yardage. However, the plays that they make on the field are crucial plays to keep their drive going. It's not about stats, it's about winning ballgames. These guys are doing what they have to do to win.

I could care less if Reggie or Joe Horn (well....maybe Joe because I have him on my fantasy team) score another TD. As long as we keep winning ballgames, I'll take Deuce going over 100 yds. a game & Colston getting a TD or 2 a game any day. We have alot of weapons, and unlike years past with "Fumbles"..... everybody gets the ball. This makes it tough for defenses to key in on one player or another. We're spreading the ball around like New England under Brady. That's a good thing people!
