Donovan McNabb (1 Viewer)

This guy is a lightning rod for criticism and he always takes it on the chin. The way he brought his team back today has been special. Good for him.

 
To be fair with my last post, I like McNabb and never really understood the level of criticism leveled his way, I think the Eagle fans/Philly media are the ones to blame here, not the national public/media.

 
He threw for 375 yards and 3 TD's. His 4th down pass at the end of the game was on the money - only for Curtis to drop it. Yet he will still be the lightning rod for criticism that the Eagles lost. I just dont get it. They had no running game to speak of today (again) and a pedestrian group of WR's. Some players are just like that I guess.

 
oh, and he's not going anywhere. No way they hand it over to kolb. sorry vikings and bears fans, enjoy you're craptacular QB play

if he doesnt throw 3 yds behind baskett the play before, then they're not even in that 4th down. get a clue, apologist
 
Guy has probably put up with more BS than anyone in the NFL that I can think of. That said, fans want a winner. And unfortunately, he may never be able to get it done.

 
I'm a huge McNabb supporter, but I have to laugh at those who are congratulating him. Do you realize how many points we left on the table because of his errant throws in the 1st half? Sure, the defense couldn't stop the Cards and that's on them. But to say McNabb didn't play his part just isn't seeing the forest for the trees.

Either way, I hope he and Reid are both back for at least one more go around. Although with at least one new tackle, Dawkins a year older, etc...I'm not sure we didn't just blow our last and best shot at a title.

 
From my perspective, Joe Buck and Troy Aikman threw McNabb under the bus the entire game.

The average fan takes what these guys and their counterparts say like it is the Gospel.

For example, on the Greg Lewis dropped pass, they said that it was a missed opportunity for McNabb because it was a bad throw. Incorrect AikBuck. McNabb put the ball over the outside shoulder in a spot where the defender could not get it. Great throw for McNabb, bad drop for Greg Lewis.

:thumbdown: for the Ambiguously Gay Duo of AikBuck.

 
375 yards passing and 3 TDs. Another 31 yards rushing.

The defense, Westbrook's 40 rushing yards, and Akers were all way more to blame than McNabb today. He played very well. If people want to analysize his 40+ passes one-by-one and point out every one that missed its mark, then feel free. I don't remember too many quarterbacks going 46-46. I do know that he put a 4th and 10, game-on-the-line pass on Kevin Curtis' shoulder pad. That's pretty clutch in my book.

:lmao: only when there is safety help. otherwise, you need to lead the WR. not, spin him around and break his stride.i hate those guys, and i dont listen to them (merrill and mike for me). but if thats what they said, they were spot on

Quit exaggerating the other side of the argument just to make your point. no one is sayin he has to be perfect. What we are saying is that he needs to actually lead his WRs. That is what the WCO is built on. You need to lead the crossing route, not throw into the dirt of behind the WR.

Negative sir. Greg Lewis isn't known for being the greatest route runner and yes, there was no safety help but if McNabb puts the ball where you imply, Lewis doesn't get a chance to catch the ball because it will easily be batted down. And as far as Lewis having a stride, the only stride he should have is the one with his head down when he walks out of Philadelphia without a contract.

well, i can agree on that. Lewis still should have caught it and i have no idea why he is on this team. but, he had the corner beat by two steps. If he is led down the field, he ctaches in stride and walks into the end zone. by spinning around and to the outside, the CB has a chance to catch up and make a play
 
Last time i was this impressed by a McNabb bounce back like this was a regular season game at Tampa. Threw 2 or 3 picks, at least one for a td. Led them back in the second half. Matt Bryant hit a 61 or 63 yarder at end to win it after a 15 yard personal foul penalty.

So 2 games I've been most proud of McNabb, they loss. That's the way the cookie crumbles.

Yeah, he was brilliant. HOF material. :goodposting:

:deadhorse: I was surprised at how critical they were of McNabb. Its like they were trying the rile up the Eagles fans with the lower IQs to run him out of town in the offseason. What McNabb haters don't realize is that while he has weaknesses, he also has a lot of positives that outweigh them. He is not perfect, but he is a heck of a lot better than most QBs out there.

406 total yards and 3 TDs. Not to shabby, I'd say. Maybe not an all-time great game, but certainly not worthy of a choker-label.
 
For those of you hammering Philly fans for not embracing McNabb, try watching a few more Philly games. Todays game was a microcosm of every game McNabb has played the last 5 years. First half you suck, second half youre brilliant.

McNabb piles up some good stats but he is terrible if his team needs him in the last 5 minutes to win a game.

 
Yea he's good, not great. That's the problem. It's been ten years. He's 1-4 in the NFCCG. 0-1 in the Super Bowl. He will not win a ring. We've seen enough.

mcnabb certainly had help today, but he choked on the last drive like he always does.
I like McNabb but I have to agree, McNabb made some great throws to get his team back in the game, then missed wide open guys down the stretch.

If you honestly think that McNabb played very well today, you are either really dumb or a total homer. You cannot just look at the numbers and say, "He played very well." He was terrible in the first half, and not good on the final drive, either. Playing well for a little over a quarter does not mean you played very well as a whole.

;) The defender got a hand on the ball before Lewis had full control.

you guys crack me up. Have the Eagles not been in big games for the last 7-8 weeks? Is not winning twice in NY worth anything? Saying he chokes in big games in just dumb. Give us Fitz and we have smooth sailing to the Super Bowl, and most of the QB's in the league do not even get the chance to see if they are good in big games because they can't even get their teams there

Championship games are much bigger than games at the Meadowlands, and today makes him 1-4 in the Championship game. I wouldn't exactly call him clutch.

funny, i think it is the exact opposite. Besides the 15-20 guys that booed the Eagles (not McNabb) at his draft, and the sports radio guy in Philly (and their fans/followers), most of the Eagles fans realize McNabb is not the anti-christ. I think the national media loves to blow it out of proportion that the Eagles fans hate McNabb, but these boneheads don't know a thing. Deion Sanders was always dumb as a rock, so when he becomes an analyst people start to beliueve what he says? Same with half of these NFL analysts

this year he had the best WR's in the playoffs he has ever had. The other years he was throwing to Todd Pinkston, Freddie Mitchell, James Thrash, etc. Give him 1 quality WR in any of those games and he looks a lot better. Would you say Warner is that much better? No, Fitz adjusts better to the ball and frankly you throw it within 5 yards and he'll catch it. Sure McNabb could have played better, but he played better then i would say most of the QB's in the NFL could have done

nah, McNabb always makes it further, with a lot less talent on the team
 
At my 115th birthday I want McNabb by my side to help me with the all those candles...... Cuz this guy really blows!

 
97.4 passer rating. 375 yards. 3 Tds. 31 rushing yards.

If McNabb had a weakness today, it was his inability to cover Fitzgerald.

 
If I was stranded on a desert island and I built a raft and fashioned a sail out of shirts and blankets... I would definitely want McNabb on that raft. Cuz this guy really blows.

 
Listening to Joe Buck and Troy Aikmen rip McNabb apart made me sick. Aikmen especially.....i thought he was classier than that.

But really.......that was absolutly ridiculous.

A BIG F*** you to Troy Aikmen for embarassing Donovan.

Holy sh$@#%A pass 45 yards downfield is on the wrong shoulder and we're calling him out for it?Never mind that it was in the receiver's hands and he dropped it. And never mind that he realized he had to turn the other way a full 1.5 seconds before the ball arrived, in PLENTY of tme to regain his track on the ball.Sorry....that was TERRIBLE announcing, and all on Lewis.

He was inconsistant in the first half...not terrible. Terrible would be multiple interceptions and zero points. He missed a couple chances, but he made no bad plays, and actually made a few nice plays. FLACCO was terrible.For some reason I've never quite understood, the bar just seems higher for McNabb then it does for most QB's.

Completely agree .... the entire Eagles team seemed to sleepwalk through the first half but McNabb was the only one Aikbuck seemed to single out. The Eagles didn't lose today because of Donovan McNabb. If anything, they found themselves with a lead in the 4th quarter thanks to the guy's efforts. Still most Philly fans I know we'll be rooting for his departure. I'm an Eagles hater and nothing would make me happier than to see the guy leave in the offseason. Simply put, I like the opposition's chances to beat the Eagles far better if McNabb isn't the QB.Pin the loss on the Eagles inability to defend Larry Fitz. Pin it on the complete lack of a running game. Blame it on Akers missed XP, FG and kickoff out of bounds. All these guys seem far more responsible for Philly's exit than Donovan. No way you could watch that game and say that McNabb didn't play well enough for the Eagles to win.

You don't spend much time in the eagles thread , do you? There's a ton of Eagles fans who bash McNabb every chance they get.I've seriously considered switching loyalties because of my fellow Eagles fans, but couldn't decide who else to root for.
 
McNabb should go to New Orleans.... Every time there is a hurricane they can avert disaster by pointing McNabb at the oncoming hurricane..... Because this guy really blows.
