McNabb, Just Being One of Us

If I recall correctly one of the reasons that Reid benched McNabb against the Ravens was to allow McNabb to take a step back and see things from a different perspective.

Well, mission accomplished. What McNabb saw was what we fans have seen for years. I commend McNabb for finally stepping up and voicing his displeasure with his so-called weapons.

In case you missed it, there is an ESPN report claiming that McNabb and the Eagles did have their highly anticipated off-season talk and the outcome was McNabb refusing to move forward with contract talks until he sees what upgrades are made to the team.

Who knew...McNabb is just like us fans. No longer can McNabb be labeled as a management man. We fans too are tired of the garbage that the Eagles assemble at the skill positions. It is time to change ways. Make the big moves, make a serious run at the title.

There are no excuses for the Eagles this off-season. There is an abundance of cap room money, there are high draft picks to package in a trade for a star or to move-up in the draft, and there are some current players that would net value in return.

Give McNabb what he wants. McNabb has earned to the right to speak out after too many seasons of carrying offensive garbage to the brink of a title.

And if the Eagles front office doesn't agree, well it's time to say goodbye to #5.
