Good news that it isn't broken bones
Hope he doesn't have to miss a game
Thanks for contributing to the stereotype the media has of Eagles fans. We appreciate it. By the way, if you're going to set fire to something.....AT LEAST LEARN HOW TO USE A LIGHTER!!!
"4. Edge to McNabb, Redskins: The McNabb trade looks even worse for the Eagles because Andy Reid is four weeks into the season and his quarterback situation is a mess. As predicted, the hits finally caught up to Michael Vick, who averaged about 20 hits a game over the past couple of weeks. He was lost late in the first quarter with rib/chest injury that is going to require a Monday MRI. McNabb didn't put up great numbers, completing only 8 of 19 passes for 125 yards, but he established a running offense that was never emphasized during his Eagles days. The Redskins' 35 runs kept the Eagles off balance, and, let's face it, Mike Shanahan outwitted Reid in the first quarter. He keyed a scoring drive with a 34-yard reverse that was soon followed by a 12-yard Ryan Torain touchdown run. McNabb had only one completion before he hit tight end Chris Cooley with a 31-yard touchdown pass late in the first quarter. The 14 first-quarter points were all McNabb needed. Reid and the Eagles have to live with the fact that they are 0-2 at home and with more uncertainty at quarterback. Vick's status is uncertain, and Kevin Kolb looked shaky coming off the bench. I still contend the Eagles should have kept McNabb for at least this season." --------------------------------------------------------------------------- His last sentence says it all... I mean really? couldn't tell... Apparently Qbs can establish the run game before the even scramble once, keep other offenses from scoring 14 points, and even make a team regret trading him with a qb rating in the low 60s and almost losing to a team that repeatedly shot themselves in the foot and got screwed out of 5 points (4 for the diff of a td vs fg plus the point after our touchdown later), aka the difference in the game, not to mention the fg we could have kicked as time ran out, since the redskins might have passed a few times with the game tied, as opposed to up 5
I don't say [penalties] lead up to losses, but...ain't nobody perfect. You can look around the league today and I'm pretty sure 90% of teams that won today had a bunch of penalties.Jason Peters proves to us that this team needs a radical change in its attitude towards penalties.
You can't knock the Sports Bog's hustle, since he was actually there (like the NYT in Part I) asking for opinions. Seemed to me this showed that we're a diverse bunch and -- gasp! -- all Eagles fans don't have matching opinions. We got some nutbags down with us, but not all ... Also homie with the Akers tat is pictured here. Lol.
NYT was actually on scene, and though he went wondering if there would be trouble, he painted the picture as it happened. There's a Part II coming.
The Redskins have announced that they will introduce their offense today and that Donovan McNabb will be the last man out of the tunnel. No doubt every sports outlet in the world will be waiting with baited breath hoping for thunderous boos…
