First, yeah the offense was stagnant but some arguments are that McNabb has returned to his inconsistency.
"Why are we still so in love with McNabb? I love him too....but ....his inconsitency is killing me, us (the fanbase) , us (the team). Yes I really think the Time for Kolb to be put in is here. We have plenty of young, fresh , TALENTED new weapons for Kolb to develop with. kolb has shown He CAN be an excellent QB, But if we dont let him get some steady consistent playing time ...hes gonna end up another Jason Campbell. A really talented QB who never got to develop to his full potential." - by northern eagle on Oct 18, 2009 4:32 PM PDT
"Hear me out on McNabb. He's always super inconsistent. Even in the championship game when he had 3 quarters of good play that 1st quarter of horrible play left a LOT of points on the board. Not to mention the other CG and SB that he played horribly in (3 or 4 turnovers in the SB). Oh, his inability to lead a WR on a simple slant, his over thrown balls, his balls thrown behind open WRs just boils my skin. Even when he did have time today WRs were getting open and he threw some of the worst balls I've ever seen. I'm sorry, he's not a GREAT Qb... Good, sure, great, no and I don't feel confident about him leading our offense, especially a WC one." - by Joe_D on Oct 18, 2009 4:39 PM PDT
The "haters" leave out a important stat. 6 sacks in today's game. Now I'm gonna throw out some numbers
|Completions 21, Attempts||39,||% 53.8,||Yards 261,||Avg. 6.7,||TD's 1,||INT 0,||Sacks 6,||Sack Yards 39,||
Now who would like Aaron Rodgers? Cannon arm, youth, lots of potential, and a top 15 QB. Guess what...those are his numbers against the Bengals. Probably one of the most raved QB's this off season. A lot of people were saying Tom Brady wasn't the same QB b/c of the pressure and fear of re injuring the leg. My point is you can't expect a QB to perform without help. Receivers droppedthe ball today when we need them to continue drives. Joe_D, if you want a QB that can scramble for his life, throw of his back foot and bullet it so that he can still lead his receiver (that not supposed to be a list, that is an action in order. I dunno it sounded like it could be a list) then you should follow Greg Lewis to the Vikes. Farve is the only guy that can do that period.
Second, yes we need to run the ball more but it isn't Andy's fault.
" AM PHYSICALLY SICK OF THIS IDIOT RUNNING MY TEAM HOW MUCH EVIDENCE DO WE NEED ...ENOUGH.... WHEN TAMPA REALIZED DUNGY COULDN`T GET IT DONE THEY BROUGHT IN A SMART NASTY MF THAT KNEW HOW TO WILL A GOOD TEAM TO VICTORY THE PIECES ARE IN PLACE IT`S TIME FOR HIM TO GO NOW! GRUDEN IS STILL OUT THERE I GUARANTEE YOU HE WON`T GIVE US GAMES LIKE THIS .LURIE PLEASE I`M BEGGING YOU GET RID OF HIM TODAY PROVED THAT HE IS NOT GOING TO GET IT DONE ,HOW CAN U LOSE TO THE WORST TEAM IN FOOTBALL AN AL DAVIS TEAM IN A GAME WHERE UR QB CALLS TO AND U DON`T HAVE ANY DID YOU HEAR THE UPROAR OF LAUGHTER AROUND THE LEAGUE ON THAT ONE GET RID OF THAT FAT F++K!!!"- hiimcarlg on Oct 18, 2009 7:38 PM PDT
"As long as the fat man stubbornly continues his over-reliance on this vertical variant of the west coast offense, ignoring all reason and refusing to take what the defense gives us from time to time, we will never have an offense that can consistently come through in the clutch." - Eagles need to run on Oct 18, 2009 9:00 PM PDT
Shut up, Dungy built that Bucs team and Dungy won a superbowl with a Colts that are still successful today. Where is Gruden? In the booth commentating. Also, yes he runs the ball to rarely, but shut up. If you look at the way our team is built, we are built to throw. Plus McCoy has had a fumble problem recently. I love McCoy but I can't risk giving him more chances to fumble every game. No hommo. We just need to give Westbrook and Weaver more plays.
But they were also right on some points
1. O-Line was crap (I think we jinxed ourselfs, the projected starters of that group haven't been together)
2. The LB's covering TE's and backs (FB and RB)
3. Time-out ussage
Last thing...Is Stacy Andrews injured? If so how long b/c I think we need to stop this rotation thing b/c it will give our O-Line some stabliltiy and also we paid him big money to start and I feel comfortable with him. Max and Cole blew it.
