Everyone knows Freddie Mitchell as the shy, reserved former Eagles wide receiver now famous for his incredible 4th & 26 catch, but we managed to catch up with Mitchell and got him to open up a little for an exclusive interview (our first ever for real-real, non-made-up one) only seen here on

In the wake of the news that Brian Westbrook will have surgery to remove bone spurs from his ankle, you have to figure that would be a good place to start, but what kind of responsible news outlet would we be if we didn’t dig deeper for the story behind the story.

In honor of Freddie’s choice of music and because the world could always use a trip back to the 80s with more Journey, here are a couple selections to pass the next few minutes:

“I think it’s great that I don’t have to call guys out through the media anymore,” said Mitchell. “Twitter allows you to talk junk without the middleman. It’s so much easier, and significantly more addicting this way.”
