Who is rebuilding?



In 2002, McNabb was lost for a significant amount of time at the end of the year. Could the Eagles win without him?

 

Koy Detmer 1-0

A.J. Feely 4-1

 

Total record without McNabb? 5-1

Fast forward to 2005 when we had 19 players on injured reserve and we had the most dismal season ever with Mike McMahon.

 

And then again in 2006, the Eagles were on the brink of mediocrity with the same inconsistent offense. On the surface the Eagles offense looked really good but they were either boom or bust and had trouble sustaining nice long drives.  Our record was an ugly 5-5 and then McNabb went down with a serious ACL tear.

Jeff Garcia 5- 1

Luckily, McNabb stayed relatively healthy again up until 2007 missing two games due to a thumb injury.

A.J. Feely 0-2

Feely looked impressive nearly defeating the undefeated Patriots and then followed it up with an unimpressive performance against the Hawks. Feely forced too many balls and led to way too many crucial INTs.

In 2009 we lost McNabb again for two games. We finally got to see what Kevin Kolb looked like after being able to prepare with the starters.

Kevin Kolb 1-1

Total record without McNabb (not counting the season where we had nearly 20 players on IR)? 11-5

So again, who's rebuilding and who says we can't win without McNabb? With plenty of picks in the most potent draft in 15 years, I really like our chances to build this franchise even better than when McNabb was here the last decade.

In the FO we trust.
