I'm going to have to disagree with you there. I think it's time they move in a new direction with the QB. Whether it's keep Vick, or move on with Kolb, I think it's time. They have two very young receivers. The more time those receivers get with Kolb or Vick, the better. Let them build their trust, their rhythym, etc. Otherwise, they'll likely suffer a setback (could be big or small), when they do move on with a new QB. Why not go ahead and let them get their reps in now?
Donovan does have a great win record, but he's never won the big one. Just let it go and move on already. I think it's time, personally.
Just because the season ended the way it did doesn't mean it's McNabb's fault. This Eagles team set a FRANCHISE record for points scored this year. The team was dessimated with injuries and still managed 11 wins, and during their 6 game win streak McNabb lead 3 4th quarter drives to win the games.
The week before the Boys games, Eagles starting Center went down with an ACL tear. It caused a huge shakeup in the line right before the Dallas games. A line already down 2 starters. No matter how good your backups are, that is very tough to overcome, especially against a team with a pass rush like Dallas.
I understand football is a TEAM game. It takes 53 men with a great coaching staff to win year in and year out. the Eagles o line stunk it up at the end and their Defense was TERRIBLE. No matter who the hell you put under center in those games, the eagels were not going to win. Did they miss chances, hell yes they did, but is that all McNabb's fault, hell no. Peyton Manning under center has no chance if he's getting hit and rushed all game long and his receivers can't catch passes thrown to them.
Not to mention teh Eagles lost their HOF D coordinator prior to the season starting. RIP JJ.
This team needs to fix their Guys in the trenches and get healthy, their report of guys on IR this year is ridiculous.
QB is not an interchangeable position in the NFL. You can't have a top QB go down and expect the team to keep on trucking successfully. Granted I don't like Romo at all, but if he went down so would the Boys chances realistically.
I love the Eagles, and know this offseason McNabb may be gone. At least 6 other teams are already expressing interest in trying to get him. If that happens the Eagles young talent will not grow with Kevin Kolb in there. The Eagles FO usually does the right thing, usually. I have faith they will again this time around.
