Did McNabb say that to divert the media

Did McNabb say that he didn't know about the overtime rule to divert the media from the bad play of the eagles?I just read this, and thought maybe he is thinking of the team and putting the game even more on his shoulders to keep the locker room positive?

Hard to keep the focus off mcnabb after throwing 3 picks and losing a fumble. but a real leader would throw himself under the bus rather than alow the team to be picked apart. I want to like McNabb but games like this just piss me off, although I'd much rather have mcnabb and his 1-2 bad games a year than Rivers the loud mouth asshole that thinks he's the team and blames everyone after every play.
