Did Aikman overreact to McNabb's call?

With about three minutes left in yesterday's win against the Giants, Donovan McNabb scrambled out of bounds to the Giants' sideline and picked up their phone, drawing a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.

After the game, McNabb said he was just having fun, but he apologized for costing his team the 15 yards.

However, if you were watching on TV, you probably noticed that the move really seemed to bother Fox analyst Troy Aikman.

"You know, sometimes I don't know what runs through that guy's head," Aikman said. "I mean, that's silly."

I've posted the YouTube clip below. So what do you think? Did Aikman overreact? I generally like the ex-Cowboys quarterback as an analyst but thought his reaction was kind of odd.

Personally, I think McNabb probably shouldn't have done it, but wasn't it pretty harmless?
