CHANDLER, ARIZONA (TICKER) —Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb’s season was sacked in Arizona - with no help from a pair of bungling fans of the Cardinals.

Two men were arrested Sunday for vandalizing the lawn of the home of the Eagles’ quarterback on the eve of the NFC championship game.

Rex Michael Perkins, 37, and Ryan Hanlon, 28, were arrested on charges of criminal damage in the wake of the incident.

Sergeant Joe Favazzo of the Chandler Police Department confirmed to PA SportsTicker that the pair used diesel fuel to burn the words “Go Cards,” “Go Kurt” and “I (heart symbol) AZ” on McNabb’s lawn shortly after midnight on January 17.

“They thought it was funny,” Favazzo said.

What was humorous, Favazzo noted, was how the pair led police directly to them.

The use of diesel fuel was the third “prank” pulled by the pair in three days, said Favazzo, who noted that McNabb laughed off the first two incidents.

In the second incident, a cardboard box and cardboard sign were left in McNabb’s yard with the words “Go Cards” and “Beat Philly” on them.

When police arrived after McNabb discovered the messages burned into the lawn, the officer “did about a five-second investigation,” Favazzo said.

On the cardboard was a sticker with Perkins’ named and addressed affixed to it. When the officer went to his home, Perkins confessed and added that he had an accomplice - Hanlon.

Wow. Some friend. Instead of writing "go cards" why not just cut the boxes out into giant arrows pointing towards his house?

I guessed them to be Eagles fans when I first heard about this.

They should have to fix his yard while the Super Bowl is going on.

Nice. Sounds like a Ted Poe type of punishment.

And even the vandals knew that regular season games could end in a tie. :whip:

Their punishment should be: Lock them in the Eagles Locker room with Mcnabb, Dawkins and the rest of the eagles. I think they are still pretty mad about losing in the desert.

That would be sweet justice.
