Birds left wondering what could have been

Full story: The Morning Call

Karma is a wonderful thing. All the local sports writers noted the dropped passes. However, they failed to pick up what the TV commmentators notice: McNabb's passes were often in the dirt and uncatchable. Thus, when McNabb is on the mark, the receivers drop the ball. When the receivers are open, McNabb's passes are uncatchable.

There's plenty of blame here, but if you're going to point fingers, point toward all the flaws. McNabb just can't win the big ones.

Sure, Mcnabb is to blame for some of the mishaps. But, I believe the real problem here was Reid passing the ball 80% of the time!! Why?

Westbrook only had 12 runs...Why?

Despite the 30 mph gusts of wind, Mcnabb was still throwing "in the dirt"...Why?

Bad luck? I dont think so--just bad play calling.

Time to rebuild.

McNabb will NEVER bring a championship to Philly....NEVER..he commented that he wanted to win the Superbowl so he could get a call from Obama.....HA HA....No chance of that happening! Hes a BUM!

If McNabb was to ever have healthy running backs and in addition a veteran collection of receivers and tight ends...Their season might have been vastly different....Yes, the Eagles played magnificent against my beloved New York Giants in their last meeting - but the true fact is this: CONSISTENCY IS A MUTHA...The Eagles could not find a way to play as spirited against the Bengals (a team by all means should have had an easy time getting a victory) as they've against their NFC EAST rivals.

Wait your a converted Cardinals fan. I knew Giants fans were fair weather, but comeon. Why don't you just dust off your golf club like the rest of the Big Blue Choking Crew?
