A Cry For Help

I guess Donnovan McNabb still thinks he has long term control of the Philadelphia Eagles. The guy has been almost boo'ed out of the city, and now he's ready to ask management for some wide recievers.

 

“Now that the season is over and we are concentrating on 2008, I hope we are able to secure some playmakers in all three phases of the game. Maybe some of those playmakers are already on the roster but have struggled with injuries, myself included, that have held us back a little.” 

You can't argue with how the Patriots went outside their locker room and stocked up on playmakers last year. It certainly helped to have Randy Moss, Donte Stallworth, Wes Welker and Adalius Thomas making plays for them all year.

I'm surprised that anyone would have a problem with me, or anyone else in the organization, expressing a desire to bring in more quality players. We were 8-8. There is room for improvement. This is a competitive sport. It's about putting together the best players, the best team, and giving yourself the best chance to win.”

 

Personally, I agree with him, but shouldn't Kevin Kolb be the one coplaining.  Eagles management doesn't draft recievers, and Kolb has nothing geared towards the future except for Brown and Avant.

Well it beats him complaining about being a "black QB."  I know there are race issues still, but if Brady was injured the last three of four seasons fans would start turning on him too?  I regress though, McNabb has a point though, and I mentioned this at the beginning of the season.  There aren't enough playmakers on the offensive side of the ball.  Though, I'd also like to point out that McNabb isn't as much of a playmaker as he used to be either.  So new WRs, give Kolb a chance to play, and keep Westbrook around as long and as happy as possible.

Then again, I am a Cowboys fan.  Keep McNabb, drop Kolb, Westbrook is washed up so force him into retirement, and those receivers, they are outstanding.  Revamp the defense by getting rid of the front four.  Oh, and encourage penalties.

Fans sure as hell do. There were some Chad Johnson rumblings the other day, but yeah right this is Philly.
