Yes, both McNabb's and Reid's futures in Philly seem to be bleak. What an awful past couple of weeks for McNabb. First he makes an idiot out of himself with the overtime fiasco, then he gets benched. And to think some of the "analysts" over at espn.com picked Philly to go to the Super Bowl. Nice.
Well...........maybe those "analysts" will end up being right after all. Hey, everyone gets lucky once in a while. Even those idiots at ESPN.
But it is amazing how far the Eagles have come since that game where McNabb was benched. A lot of people brought out the tombstone after that game (me included), but now they're in the playoffs and a 2 point favorite going into Minnesota.
And....they eliminated Dallas and embarrassed them in the process. Good job Eagles!
McNabb is for sure going to be a hotter commodity in free agency if he ends up taking the Eagles back to the NFC championship like he did a few years ago...4 TIMES!!! I have always been an advocate of Donovan and I think that the tumultuous relationship with the coach, fans and front office could have hindered his play a little. I think a fresh change of scenery would be great for him and whatever team that is lucky enough to get him....LIONS!
I'm not 100% certain about Donovan but Reid will be back, of that I am sure. There is no way they will get rid of him before he shows what he can do with Kolb. He has, at least, another year after Donovan is not the starter.
I believe it will free up a lot of salary cap room if they trade him this year. I may have him mixed up with another player but it either frees a lot of money up (9 million or so) or is a wash salary cap wise.
