The media sure seems to think so. I expected this kind of talk given the fact that we live in Negadelphia... While I can't say I don't understand it, I'm still surprised to see such a consensus among the local media...
Mark Eckel says Time to say goodbye to Reid, McNabb
McNabb and Reid will forever be joined in Eagles lore. As the years pass their time will be remembered as successful, very successful, but just not successful enough. It is time to start over before the 6-10 seasons keep repeating like the answers in Reid's press conferences.
He goes on to write about how much money the Eagles would save through 2012 by trading McNabb and how Andy Reid should be bought out. He also advocates trading for PA native Matt Schaub and hiring John Gruden, who Eckel claims is looking to get out of Tampa.
Jack McCaffery writes Birds have to realize McNabb era is over
The time for the Eagles to seek their next quarterback has arrived.
It has arrived because it is official: McNabb is too prone to injury to continue to count on for Super Bowl-level production. Not five days before turning the big 3-0. Not with this injury --- a twisted, damaged right knee, the wound that has reduced so many quarterbacks to statuesque pocket-passers. Not for a team in Super Bowl retreat, on so many fronts.
Oh wait, I forgot... McCaffery is an idiot...
After all that, he then goes on to say the Eagles shouldn't give up on McNabb...
More Details On McNabb Injury
While the Eagles stuck to their 8-to-12 month timetable for the rehab, the additional findings made it seem they were leaning toward 12.
