Trade McNabb and Westbrook?


Call me crazy, but I think the Eagles should start looking to trade Westbrook and/or McNabb [not right now, but maybe at the end of the year]. We have seen the future of our team this season; from Kolb having two 300+ yard passing games, McCoy being a solid rusher, Jeremy Maclin, Desean Jackson, and Brent Celek all excellent receiving options. McNabb is still having a great year and I am not giving up on Westbrook just yet, but right now is the time to deal them and still get top value for them. The longer we let them age and get injured, the less value we will end up getting in the trade market for them. Many teams would jump at the opportunity to get an elite NFL QB in McNabb, and a playmaker in Westbrook. Westbrook has not had much offensive success this season, and neither has the running game in general. Kolb looks like he is ready to start in the NFL, I was very impressed by him.

In return, I think the Eagles should look to get some draft picks to continue to go young, defensive linemen/linebacker who can rush the passer well, a safety, another running back to add depth to the backfield, anything. As long as they are younger players so we continue to build this team through youth. Our offense is filled with young weapons who look like they will be great together for years, so why not start that now? The Packers made a similar decision a couple years ago when Aaron Rodgers was ready to start but they still had Brett Favre. Not saying that is the same situation right now, but it could turn into it.


I have talked to plenty of Eagles fans about this topic and have not found one who agrees with me.
