McNabb was benched during the Ravens game. It's a thing of the past. Yet we are still talking about the benching!
Get over it Donovan. And will the media stop asking the man about the benching...please!
Was the benching fair or deserved? The truth is it's all a matter of opinion. McNabb's play leading up to the Ravens game and during the Ravens game certainly warranted the benching. McNabb had turned the ball over 7 times in 7 quarters and was starting off games going 0-8, 0-7, and 3-11. The flip side argument is that is was unfair to make McNabb the scapegoat for the teams' mid-season struggles. The man is an elite QB and the face of the franchise. McNabb deserved better.
But in the end who cares. Donovan, quit the bitching. You are a $100 million man and you are the QB of the Philadelphia Eagles. Of course there is going to be criticism.
Do you think that we 9-5ers don't get our asses handed to us every once in a while at work. Do you think that Manning and Favre don't take the same type of criticism up in NY (and they have Super Bowl rings). Stop painting yourself as the victim. We love you in this city. The large majority of us are wearing your jersey and always cheering you when you run out of the tunnel on game days. There are going to be rough times, deal with it.
And will the media start focusing on the present. The Eagles are as hot as any team in the NFL. We are in the mist of a playoff run, the resurrection of our 2008 season. No one wants to hear about the benching anymore. We are over it. We only care about two wins and then some help.
