Hey! You got a MLB team in a NFL article!
 
2012-12-28 03:56:53 PM  
I'm bias as a McNabb mark and Vick hater (he's a rubbish QB), I just wonder how the Don is going to be viewed in a few years. If you count Reggie White as more of a GB guy, then Donovan is arguably (with some of the old old hats) the best player in the history of the franchise.  You can't say that he is a crap QB and Reid sucks as a coach and then turn your back on their record.  Mind you, you could say that Jim Johnson was some sort of Posedian like god who was put on this earth only to coach defenses (and was taken too early).

Will Donovan make the HOF?  No, he's going to be group in that very good, just a step below group (because he didn't get a title; 1 title in Philly->he's in).  He just gets an unfair amount of the blame for their failures.  Heck, of their NFC title game losses, the one that was his fault was the Bucs game, the Rams/Cardinals games, the D played like crap and he lead them back for a shot to win at the end, and the Panthers game featured and half a D that got suspended for roids the following year; the NE super bowl was at the height of spygate/watching SB walkthroughs and NE guessed their D perfectly in the first half.  But what do people remember from that game, not McNabb leading them back, but TO's comments ripping him. No one ever takes TO's side, accept in this one case.

Also, one curious thing: 3 coaches have been fired/quit at the end of Vick's run: Mora, the snake, and now Reid.  My guess is if someone picks Vick up for a one year flyer, the year Vick is done, that coach gets fired.

Rubbish.  Complete and utter rubbish.  Nobody sided with TO.  Hugh Douglas almost came to blows with TO because of his antics.

BTW... McNabb is and will always be overrated.  As someone who actually attended most of the home games McNabb has played in, you must not have watched the same guy I did.  The only things that were in danger at the Vet and the Linc were the worms.  (for as many worm burners McNabb threw over his career)  His stats are skewed running the offense Andy Reid ran since the screen pass was used more or less like the running game.

I used to be a defender of his until the time where he accepted responsibility for a loss and then promptly layed blamed on seemingly every player around him.  (the O-line, his receivers, etc...)

5 won exactly zero titles.  He doesn't deserve to be in the HOF.

They did make it seem easy, I have to admit.

McNabb may have been frustrating sometimes, but he was competant, and he made pedestrian receivers look good (I'm looking at you, Fred-Ex).
Still, all that good play, and no championship to show for it, its frustrating.


But at least I'm not a Jets fan, so thats a plus.

If Reid goes, we're going to be rebuilding for a while. We will not get lucky like the Colts did by jettisoning Peyton. It won't happen.

Not to be the stats nazi in the group, but TFA said he led them to 4 NFC championship games. I thought it was 5...the four in a row which culminated in the Super Bowl trip vs. New England, and then the fluky one a few years later vs. Arizona. Or am I wrong?

Good point, but I was happy to see him go. He had no gameplan. And no backup plan. "Throw it up to Moss. No one needs a solid running back." Decent drafting though. Way better than Tice and Childress although... Peterson... Loadholt... Eh, I'm torn. I think we're better off now without him, but I don't know that we have a better coach. I would have preferred Dungy or Tomlin.

Yes I am serious. When those losing seasons are his Boobies Super Bowl season, the 8-8 last year and this years clusterfark (after the death of his son), and in the time in between we were perennial playoff teams garnering 5 NFC championship appearances and a Super Bowl appearance, then yes I'm serious.

We owned the NFC East during this run and were constantly touted as one of the benchmarks in the NFC.

Buddy Ryan and Dick Vermile are beloved coaches and they did dick compared to Reid.

I get change for the same of change, I'm just hoping everyone from Laurie down to the casual fan knows that we have personnel issues to overcome and we are not going to win the Super Bowl next year or even the year after that unless we get colossally lucky.

Dawkins should have been mentioned. They immediately retired his number upon his official retirement (after signing a 1 day contract with the eagles)

Donovan won't get that respect and neither will Westbrook.

Hell before that, the last eagle to get his number retired was Reggie White and that was done in 2005

Allen was very good. I chose Brown because he would interrupt game plans before the game even started. That guy was just brutal, mean, and people feared him.

See, now that whole "have no RB" thing, that's Robert Smith being a complete pussy for the first 4 or 5 years of his career. Green stuck with him long enough to see him become the guy most Vikings fans choose to remember. Green putup with 4 years of the wind blowing and Smith going down for a few weeks. I remember he got like chickenpox or an ear infection at one point that kept him out for a few games.

*googles it*

Nevermind, he had BOTH.

2012-12-28 06:02:13 PM  
McNabb greatly ruined his legacy after leaving the Eagles. From his failures in Washington and Minnesota, to the claims he wasn't in shape and couldn't grasp the playbooks, and his terrible analysis after his career was over (remember when he said Shanahan would ruin RG3?)

That said, I thought he was pretty good in Philly. Outside of the year and a half with TO, he didn't have many weapons on the outside. And I think there is something to be said for consistency in the playoffs, even though he couldn't win the big one. And while this doesn't get mentioned much with him, he did a great job carrying the torch for the 'black quarterback'. A classy guy in dealing with the media, generally played well under pressure, and stayed out of trouble off the field. A 7/10 on the Rob Parker Cornball Brother scale.

As a Bucs fan, I have much respect for the Eagles teams they fielded in the late 90s and early 2000s. They were excellent. They sent Tony Dung out of town after two consecutive playoff losses. Not many sustain play at that high level for so long. That defensive line was lights out.

The Eagles really were not that good in the late 90s. From the best of my memory they were 6-9-1 in 1997, 3-13 in 1998, and 5-11 in 1999. In 2000 they got real good for a period of time.

I don't understand why no one gives Randal Cunningham any credit. The guy was fun to watch and seemed to have 1 weapon- his tight end or full back - for most of his career. Buddy Ryan once quipped that if he had 11 Cunningham's on offense, he'd win all his games 99-0. Hyperbole, but even Buddy (anyone remember how he set the Cardinals O against their D?) saw him as a good offensive player.

It seems like people liked him a lot more if he didn't play for a team they liked. I loved watching him play, but I'm not an Eagles fan.

I doubt you would hear this kind of comment from Marino, Esiason, Moon, Kelly, or even Pat Haden or Danny White (both lost multiple NFC championship games).

He is the most butt-hurt athlete in the history of sports. Wasnt he crying about how Shanahan was going to ruin RG3?

Yeah...about that...

You were favored in 3 of 5 NFC championships. You lost 4 of them. You didnt win the Championship, the reason you play. The reason you dont understand is because you were ok with not winning it all. Eagle fans were not. Go away.

If Randall had ever had an O-line that didn't suck, I think he would've had a great career, instead of a pretty good one.
And competent wideouts wouldn't have hurt either.

Does anyone remember the sheer mediocrity of the time between Buddy Ryan and Andy Reid? That 10 winning seasons out of 14 is something that any franchise would take in a heartbeat.

McNabb's got a good point. Eagle's fans are kind of dicks. I'm hoping Matt Barkley falls to them in the draft. Chief and Jags fans have suffered enough and I'd like to see then turn it around.

Most NFL fans: I'd be happy to see my team make the playoffs just once in a while.

Eagle's fans: Booooooo
