McNabb Needs Westbrook

Note to Donovan...make sure B-West is at the top of your Christmas shopping list.

Donovan is a pretty special talent himself, but his performance sure does go up a notch when there is #36 to lean on. McNabb used to be the catalyst for the Eagles offense. You could give the man Charles Johnson, James Thrash, or Todd Pinkston and it wouldn't matter. McNabb in turn would give you wins and Pro Bowl stats.

But with age and injuries things change. McNabb is still a top talent at the QB position, but he is no longer the Eagles offensive stud. That title belongs to Westbrook. As Westbrook goes, so goes the Eagles and also McNabb.

The Eagles are currently winning because the have a run game. This season when B-West has 20+ carries in a game the Eagles are 4-0. In those same 4 games, McNabb has completed 64% of his passes, thrown for 1053 yards (253 per game), has 7 TDs and only 1 interception. No doubt some of his best numbers of the season.

Stats aside the most important thing is wins. Run Westbrook and the wins come. Run Westbrook and McNabb returns to Pro Bowl form. I am confident that this 1-2 punch can lead us to 3 more wins and a playoff berth!

Randomness...A Cowboys loss and a Falcons loss today and the Eagles will be sitting in the final wild card spot before their Monday night kick-off!
