WASHINGTON -- The delirium over the Philadelphia Eagles’ victory over the New England Patriots seems to have been matched by delight in Tom Brady’s defeat and the phantom throw of the century. There he was, arguably the greatest quarterback ever to caress the pigskin, about to throw a crucial pass in the final few minutes -- and the ball disappeared. Knocked out of his hand by the Eagles’ Brandon Graham, the loose ball was then covered by Eagles lineman Derek Barnett while Brady, his mind and shoulder already melded in forward motion, continued with the pass anyway.
