Yea I still don't know what you're reading to be honest man...and it sounds like you're talking out of both sides but okay
You say last year was the result of a soft schedule as if McNabb has never had success against good teams. You would think he's some random QB still trying to prove himself
thats not what im saying at all. i dont know how you could see me specifically refer to last year and think that im referring to his whole career, that doesnt make to much sense. im saying people were thinking this was the same Mcnabb of yesteryear and what i was trying to tell people is that he's not and if you looked at his play last year you could tell. people were literally telling me (on this site) that we were going to be in last place because we lost this guy, like we were really losing an elite player when all you have to do its look at the games and see thats not the case. i was arguing with people as recently as last year about this guy being elite and for the life of me i couldnt understand why they thought he was STILL (meaning he was before). they would point to our record and like i said it was the product of a soft schedule.
To me it's really not that complicated. This isn't like Carson Palmer struggling with the Bengals, or Derek Anderson struggling with the Cardinals, or Alex Smith struggling with the 49ers, Sanchez with the Jets, Favre with the Vikings, or even Henne with the Dolphins. In all of those situations, you could point to the QB like
its not the same dude to the supporting cast, but it is the same in terms of the quarterbacks individual performances being bad. and they are held more accountable (in terms of the public view of them) then 5 ever has been ,all those guys you named have either gotten benched, the coach said he thought about benching him (Sanchez), or people were calling him to be bench (Favre and Palmer)
But this? No one can argue that McNabb doesn't make you go at times and has for several times this season and some moments througout his career. But most reasonable NFL analysts would look at a QB in that situation, an Accomplished QB at that and not expect him to be Superman all things considered after taking a step back. And by that I mean a.ssessing the conditions throughout the season. I've seen QBs get more breathing room when they have more than Five does. I don't think some feel it's a coincidence at this point that he's having his worst season ever
thats funny because every reasonable analyst that ive seen the last day has said that 5 should have been benched because he has been playing badly. people that have looked at the film of this guy this year see no problem with it. Why? because what they are seeing is a guy that is making decisions and mistakes that an 11 year vet should not be making. the things that he could control he was doing a very bad job of doing. and just because those guys are getting breathing room doesnt mean that they should have and it doesnt mean that 5 should either. im all for benching someone for p!ss poor play no matter who they are.
Now if he ends up in a situation like Henne, Sanchez, Alex Smith, Derek Anderson, Favre, or Palmer and the same thing happens, then I think you would have something to look at. For now, the jury's still out
how is the jury out when he was benched here too?
i said it before and ill say it again. in a span of 2 years this guy would have been
benched 3 times
denied an extension from the eagles
traded within the division
called out for endurance and lack of picking up an offense
and more then likely released at the end of this season
when are people like you going to realize the trend. talking about the jury's still out? no disrespect but thats bulls**t, but i hope he does go to one of those situations because i bet that people will blame other people for HIS poor play. like they did in philly, like they're doing in DC
