THE QUESTION

Can the Eagles Compete Without McNabb?

With Vick waiting in the wings and Jeff Garcia just signed, are the Philadelphia Eagles still a playoff contender with McNabb not starting at quarterback?

Dumb question. I guess none of you remember when McNabb got hurt and the Eagles were 1 play (motion penalty nullified a big gain at the end) away from the NFC Championship game with Jeff Garcia. A few years before that with Koy Detmer and AJ Feeley they went to the NFC Championship game. This is pretty lame. By the way who do the Deadskins have at QB?

This is such a dumb question, but I'll bite by answering a question with a question. Have you forgotten that the Eagles have a fresh, skilled, and extremely competent Michael Vick eagerly waiting in the wings?

I don't know how long McNabb will be out, but the question should not be based upon the assumption that their offense cannot function without him, but how will it play with Vick at the helm and how will other teams adjust to however the Eagles utilize him. And then, what happens if Vick comes in and they play like Superbowl winners.

The Eagles will be fine for now, they have an early by week so they can start Garcia for 2 games and bring back Donovan in week 5 after plenty of rest.
