Turkey, Mashed potatoes, and Corn on the Kolb??!!

By Kevin Trainham: Well, another week has passed and the Eagles have once again fallen. They fell very hard and lost not only the game, but quite possibly the man who has been the face of the franchise for ten years.

Far be it from me to say whether or not it was the right call to bench him, I will however say that Andy Reid's decision making has gone from "huh?" to "WTF?" in a matter of weeks. I never thought I would see the day when Andy would bench Donovan for poor performance, NEVER!

Also, benching him in the most important game of the season for a guy who has no experience whatsoever? An AJ Feeley sighting would have made a lot more sense to me and would have made it a lot easier to go back to McNabb if AJ failed to deliver.

Throwing Kolb in the middle of a three point game against a PUNISHING defense to start the second half is a lot to ask, to say the least. All of this said, now another game on Thursday night(Thanksgiving) and for all intensive purposes your season, you have to either send a bitter and might a say SUPER SENSITIVE number five, or a young, inexperienced number four.

The always enjoyable in the city of brotherly shove quarterback controversy is alive and running! If it were up to me I would go with McNabb and that's coming from one of his biggest critics. If for anything else, out of respect.

Kevin Kolb does a lot of things that Mcnabb just cannot do or refuses to do. Such as, throw to spots, throw into tight coverage, fast release, and will throw the ball away. One thing Kolb has not proven yet though is to be on the winning side of a regular season game as a starter.

McNabb has and at this point with a 5-5-1 record you need to win against Arizona. So as much as I would enjoy some buttered up corn on the Kolb with my Thanksgiving dinner, I believe the best thing would be to give ol Donnie Mc one last shot and hey maybe just maybe RUN THE DAMN BALL!!

Well, McNabb will be the QB on Thanksgiving against Arizona. Reid announced it at his press conference. At least he will be the QB until something else happens to panic Reid and once again flap around like a beached whale (pun and comparison intended).

Despite anything he might say, Andy's move (I'm not going to call it a decision, because I think it was plain and simple gut reaction) was panic to try and save his own butt. He didn't have any idea what else to do, just like he didn't have any idea what to do or how to really fix the problems in the other games! At least he finally stopped saying that he just needs a little tweek here and a little tweek there to fix things!
