Get Over it Donovan, Media

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.

Yeah, that annoyed me last night to no end, and they even mentioned Santa Claus being booed with about nine minutes left in the game (thanks, Tony, you blow).

I think any broadcaster who mentions the whole Santa Claus thing should never be allowed to broadcast a pro game ever again.

Uh, the difference is that McNabb gets his ass handed to him every day! Eagles fans don't deserve a QB like McNabb. Rollins had it right; philly fans are the biggest bandwagon fans there are.

HILARIOUS! Like the Philly faithful are as forgiving when McNabb has a bad game.

um, anonymous 1- when you accept the position of a starting NFL QB, along w the paycheck, you accept that you will be heavily scrutinized. Part of the fun of football are the fans and their passion for their teams. The fans make the sport. The players exist for the fans. And philly fans are the best. They love their teams passionately through the good times and bad times. And by love I don't mean always blowing smoke up their a$$es. They also dole out the tough love. They have high standards for their teams and when those standards are not met, they're vocal about it. That my friend is love.
