The Eagles are at their best with McNabb under center again next season. Go ahead and find me a better option...you can't.
But what I don't agree with is the need for the Eagles to reward McNabb with a new contract. Yea it sucks that his signing bonus money is all but gone and his current deal provides him with little security...but as they say...them the brakes.
I just don't see how you reward a guy that is coming off a season that had him being benched and producing numbers take were middle of the pack QB numbers. 9+ million dollars seems more than fair for a QB that was ranked:
- QB Rating: 14th
- Passing Yards: 7th
- TD Passes: 8th
- Completion Percentage: 18th
- Average Yards Per Pass Attempt: 18th
- Yards Per game: 9th
- Interceptions: 14th
Again good numbers, but numbers that have you home and not in Hawaii this weekend. Numbers that are worthy of his current contract, but not a new deal.
If the man needs more money maybe there can be a built in incentive clause for keeping his mouth shut...like a no whining clause. It would be a win win for all.
