November 26th Winner: RICHFROMPHILLY


In Response to: Is McNabb Being Unfairly Blamed?

Being from Philly, we have had a lot of Andy Reid. Right now he picks the players in the draft; has major input on free agents, coaches the team and calls the offensive plays. He has way too much on his plate and the roles have inherent conflicts. He seems to be blind to how bad some of his personnel choices have been. If the Eagles had a real GM, then Reid could come back to him/her on player selection. Right now, he sticks up for his own choices. We don't know how much the owner [Jeffrey Laurie] has a tight rein on spending for talent. However, we have had one first team wide out for just over one season in the last 10 years. We are extremely short of talent at tight end, especially in blocking for the run. The Eagles could have had Tony Gonzalez for a 3rd or 4th round draft pick. It would have filled a big hole. Last year we started the season without a kickoff or punt returner and lost two games because of the ones who were learning via OJT. We don't have a real fullback--again a key for run blocking. Yesterday, the score was 10-7 at the half--a 3 point margin. Yes Donovan was miserable, but over the years he has had bad spells and good ones and can turn it around on a dime. But, Mr. Brains decides this is the time to bring the rookie in--think Kevin K. has had less than 20 regular season snaps. He was not prepared to come in on short notice; if you want to play the rookie, then let him start the game. While Donovan was bad, KK had no chance. Time for Andy to go--let's get a coach who will use McNabb's talent which is not the West coast offense that Andy won't move away from even though he doesn't have the players that can execute it.
