    I really don't think they'd necessarily welcome him as warmly and as quickly as you say. Following in the shoes of an all-time great is very difficult. I don't think Donnie would have as easy a time there as you think.

      If the Eagles continue their playcalling as it was during the Garcia era, McNabb will be fine and may even play out his contract. The beating he takes as a result of passing 65-70% of the time is too much and is the main reason he gets hurt so much. Now that Reid realizes Westbrook is the best playmaker in this offense and Tony Hunt can between the tackles, we could see a consistent rushing attack from the Birds.

        Trust me, most Packers fans are expecting Rodgers as their next QB so if we got McNabb people would love him.

        You also have to remember that we've watched Favre set the interception record.

        Thanks to BK for the sig

          Theres also reports from ESPN that the eagles are no longer negotiating contracts with McNabb.

            I agree on most points here. However, McNabb wasn't taking a ton of shots when he was throwing 65-70% of the time in 2006. The ACL tear occurred on a simple run out of bounds. The ACL was frayed and just snapped. It was a long time coming, I think. Regardless, using the run 45% of the time to set up the pass and to control the clock is a good strategy regardless. I think we'll see a 3-headed monster in 2007 with Westbrook, Tapeh, and Buckhalter/Hunt. It will be very interesting.

              What the heck does that mean? McNabb is signed through 2013. What kind of negotiations would the team be going through right now?

                If he suffers another serious injury and Kolb impresses during practices, I would not be suprised.

                But both of those would have to happen.

                  He just looks real stiff out there, doesn't he?

                  He's so stiff, it just looks like he can snap something at any moment. His moves are robotic, he's not that flexible anymore, and he looks like he doesn't carry his weight as well as he used to. I think regardless of how many times he throws, durability will be a concern.

                  Of course, throwing less decreases teh chances of injury. I think we'll see him run out of the pocket alot less this year.

                    If McNabb goes down or is unable to start the season, Feeley would be the starter right now. Kolb is nowhere near ready to play in the NFL. He needs 2 years of development on the sidelines to get the WCO down, then he'll need another year as a starter to begin to grasp the nuances. He is a project. McNabb is more than capable of leading this team to success for the next 2 years while Kolb prepares himself.

                      McNabb looked very stiff in 2005, when he bulked up to 255 lbs. In 2006, he was down to 230 and looked very trim and fit. He regained some of his mobility, and he looked much more athletic. I assume McNabb will come back for 2007 in the 220-225 range with a thicker leg base. You are correct that he isn't carrying his weight as well. That could be a function of age affecting his metabolism, and his body thickening up with time.

                      McNabb has stayed in the pocket more and more the last few years. With the injuries and surgeries, he has become a pure pocket passer pretty much out of necessity because he doesn't have the burst he used to. He can still move, but he isn't an explosive runner anymore.

                          Agreed.

                          If McNabb simply stays healthy this year I really doubt he's gone.

                            Who still hasn't played a meaningful down. I'll take the elite quarterback over the unproven quarterback, if he was so good, the front office wouldn't be as eager for Favre to return.

                              He would be fun down here in south florida. McNabb to Ginn and Chambers? Ronnie out of the backfield and the booker kid was compared often to westbrook in college

                                If he gets hurt again...then he will be gone.
