Go Get Ohco-Cinco!!!

                                                                                                                                                                           

The math is simple here for Andy Reid and the Eagles brass, you wiffed on Randy Moss, Larry Fitzgerald re-signs with the Cards, Roy Williams is going to be locked up by the Lions, and Anquan Boldin may be in Fitzgerald’s teammate for another season so who’s left?

Sports Apparel – Current Cincinnatti Bengals wide reciever Chad Johnson is one of the top three at his position in the NFL, there is no question of his talent or his character. On a team full of repeat offenders Ocho-Cinco is dying to get out of those stripes. Continue reading ‘Go Get Ohco-Cinco!!!’

Return of The Mac.

                             mcnabb.jpg
Today Donovan McNabb returns to try and salvage the Philadelphia Eagles season against the N.Y football Giants. For the past two weeks backup A.J. Feeley has been at the helm while McNabb nursed ankle and thumb injuries. McNabb was sacked 12 times in the first meeting of these two teams, the Eagles will have tackle Williams Thomas and running back Brian Westbrook who did not play in the first meeting.

The game plan is simple for the Eagles today – win and your still alive for the postseason, lose – and it’s a wrap. Prepare to see rookie Kevin Kolb.

Desperate times call for desperate measures – and no team has killed the Giants more in the past 3-4 years than Westbrook, the plan is simple – get it to Westbrook as much and as often  as possible, including special teams – if last week’s near game-winning return wasn’t an indication that Andy Reid needs to stop playing him like he’s made of glass, nothing will. He’s been relatively healthy all season and he’s more rested at this point of the season than he’s ever been. Too much is at stake for him not to see about 30-35 total touches today, especially since the G-Men will be without linebacker Antonio Pierce.

Donovan McNabb Auditions Underway

                                                             5be7ee92-cddc-4504-8ae1-cb5498d730f4.jpg

Whether I want to believe it or not; barring a miracle, Donovan McNabb will not be back as quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles next season. Since his “it’s not just me” press conference last week, #5 has been under the gun on talk radio and blogs across the city. I look at these last seven games in the Eagles 4-5 disappointment of a season as an open audition for anyone in need of a top 7 or 8 quarterback in the league.

Looking at McNabb’s numbers the only stat that is down seems to be touchdowns, his passer rating is around 85-90 his completion percentage is at 60 percent. He hasn’t turned the ball over but his pass selection has not improved and his accuracy seems to have taken a step back. With all of that being said I still can’t name 5 quarterbacks that I would take ahead of him.

I’ve been through it with Randall Cunninghan, Charles Barkley and most recently Allen Iverson. Philadelphia ownership always gets rid of it’s notable Black athletes and more often than not it’s a move that comes back to haunt them.
