Philly's always been a very competitive team and a friggin thorn in the Giants back! Every year it seems your one or two "bad" calls away from winning the big one. Coach Reids fault? Maybe/Maybe not??? If #5 does go and as a GMEN fan, I'll be one happy camper! Anytime a fierce competitor loses one of their leaders.....Ima smilin'.....And Cali > Nice Win yesterday!

So which is it? The lack of talent or the lack of coaching. You can't have it both ways. IMO Reid has done more with less talent than any coach in the NFL. All they had was Westbrook and McNabb for awhile and they were still winning their conference.

You'd have a case except for one problem: ANDY REID IS THE GUY PICKING THE TALENT! If the Eagles had bad players, it was the fault of Andy Reid, who as general manager, brought in the players. Reid is a bad strategist, a bad game-day coach and a bad evaluator of talent. As for McNabb, he is a good QB, even a very good QB, but great he is not. He is inaccurate and has never come through in a big game.


Quote:
103-56 in the last 10 seasons with a Conference Championship and Coach of The Year honors isn't "the bigger problem" in Philly. You don't average more than 10 wins a season for ten straight years in the NFL if you are a "bad coach", not even close.
Have they won a Super Bowl? No. Why? Mediocrity. 10 wins a season doesn't mean **** if titles don't come along with it. I'm tired of being the second-or third-best team in the NFC every year.


Quote:
Eagles fans are delusional if they think that they are going to be better off next year with anyone other than McNabb running that offense.
McNabb might be good in the right offense, but Reid's offense is not it. I think it's Andy that should go, not Donovan.

The other teams still in the running are the Rams and the Vikes...

I don't care who takes him--Just get rid of him!
Wait until he is traded before creating threads like this. Why set yourself for disappointment?

I know, they are too STUPID to realize how bad the team was on April 2, 1999.

For once I agree with TVSG. These morons have hijacked our fanbase.
Anyone want to talk with a modest tempered, intelligent Eagle fan that went through the decades of misery feel free to hit me up.
The op and his types are what Osama bin Laden is to Islam or Tim McVeigh is to Christianity.

If you think Kolb or Vick is going to lead you to the SB, you have another thing coming.
I agree. While I've never been a red hot fan of McNabb (I think he's slightly overrated), he's brought Philly to the post season several times inculding a Superbowl. If nothing else he's been consistent. I don't think there is a future in this franchise for Vick or Kolb. Eagles fans will be booing them off the field before mid-season.

Twista's an old man? I had you pegged as younger dude.

You are talking about the 60's and 70's right?

I think Philly should get what it asks for. Trade McNabb and watch the Eagles fall apart. McNabb still has some good years left in him. Why should he spend them in Philly, which apparently doesn't want him? There are very few GOOD starting QBs in the NFL right now and McNabb is definitely one of them.

Not all of us think like that. These types are an extremely loud minority I was an Eagles fan way before these fairweathered spoiled punks hijacked our fanbase.
