I hate how our beloved Eagles, for the past couple of years, ALWAYS give away a couple games. Not only did we give the Redskins one win (although, the refs helped just as much), we gift wrapped a victory to Tennessee. Now instead of being 6-1 we are a mediocre 4-3 and if we lose to Indy we are .500. We are a dominant teams at times and not one single game this season have we've been totally out played or dominated for 4 quarters. In usual Eagles fashion, we just make it tough to make the playoffs.
Secondly, Rush Limbaugh was semi-right. Just like Brett Favre, McNabb is virtually untouchable in the media. I don't think I've ever heard anyone give McNabb some legit criticism. Behind a really bad offensive line I've heard 6 start QB Kevin Kolb get BLASTED by our fans (who really don't know QBs at all) and criticism by the media. Yet, when a 11 year vet struggles behind a bad offensive line it's "McNabb doesn't have a good enough o-line /enough weapons to succeed." Why is McNabb so invincible to criticism?
Last Sunday against the Lions the Redskins took the lead with a KO return. The stopped the Lions and the Lions punted to the Skins... McNabb throws an AWFUL INT deep in the Skins side of the ball which eventually leads to the game winning TD.. And the only thing talked about is the decisiont o BENCH him and how crazy it was. OK, I admit, the call is debatable, but an alledged "HOF QB" who's thrown 7 TDs to 8 ints with a mediocre 76.00 QB rating, he sure doesn't get ANY blame. Oh, and a well below 60% completion. In comparison, Jason Campbell has tossed 6 tds to 4 Ints with a 82 rating in six games. AND HE PLAYS WITH THE OAKLAND RAIDERS!!! Now don't tell me the RAIDERS have MORE talent than the SKins.
Listen, not every team is going to have Larry Fitz, Andre Johnson, or Maclin and Jackson as their weapons. Yet why is it an excuse for McNabb?
ANd please don't tell me MOVE ON. I argued and made my points the entire off season, NOT SO ONCE I WAS PROVED RIGHT ALL THE PEOPLE WHO DISAGREED COULD JUST SAY " MOVE ON." Nope, not happening.
And my last minuscule rant is that why does EVERYONE think the AFC is so much better than the NFC? I just watched 2 of the top afc teams get unseated by the NFC.
