The only spark that could possibly "ignite" the Eagles is to finally dump that miserable excuse for a QB, McNabb, and then rebuild the team around a truly good QB (such as Jeff Garcia), who the Eagles fired because McNabb was afraid to have a great QB on the bench, just waiting to come in and show his sorry a$$ up again. Garcia saved last year's season and he would have done even better this year because Garcia has Brains, Courage and Team Spirit.
All McNabb has is some remaining remnants of natural ability, the multi-cultural bull$hit political correctness from the media, and his never ending phony race complaints. Rush was 100% right 4 years ago, and his comments are even more true today. The Eagles really $uck this year, and they will continue to $uck until they dump McNabb because he $ucks so bad.
Of course, should the Eagles finally have the courage to get rid of McNabb, you can expect the "certain segment" of multi-cultural society to burn down Philadelphia.

PS: McNabb really $ucks!

McNabb gave us 5 great years, all of you that are blasting him now were probably the same arm chair analysts that wanted Rick Williams in the draft, he deserves respect for what he has done for the Eagles. Yes no Superbowl win but always in the hunt. Same can be said about Andy Reid. This season is not over.

Bueford, did you watch Monday nights game???? he was horrible, now think about this, he GAVE us 5 good years or whatever, but you cant win next sunday on 5 past years, that is gone, history, and he is finished, no laughing, no team spirit and that was obvious this past Monday, Reid needs to understand that and Laurie definatly understands that therory and Reid is not a permanent object in Philly either... Time for a change and Kolb is that change, and I bet by weeks end Kolb maybe the starter next week....If I was the owner he would be...Like the announcers said Monday Sign up George Blanda for 2 years and get him before Atlanta signs him!!!
I completely agree, it may be time to go but McSlob? cmon..everyone complained about losing trotter too but they did a nice job stopping the run? I thing it is too early to pull him, they need better receivers and a healthy secondary, and of course he needs to make those passes. Give it a few more games, he did show the old Donavan a little during those last two drives. Yes I know no TD...just remember we all (Eagles fans) have those number 5 jerseys at home and did appreciate him at one time.

Five Good Years?? Are you talking about blowing 3 consecutive NFC championships with interceptions? Are you talking about blowing the Super Bowl by his stupidity, and laying down and flat out quitting in the 4th quarter? Are you talking about tearing up the team by his bad mouthing T.O. and black-mailing the Eagles into forcing T.O. out? Or are you talking about McNabb finally getting taken out last year while a loser, and Jeff Garcia coming in with the very same team and saving the season? The original Buford was a nitwit, and you are following his example.

PS: McNabb still really sucks.

McSlob is the only NFL QB to blow 3 consecutive NFC championship games by ending with an interception. McSlob is the only NFL QB to just quit during the 4th quarter of a SuperBowl. McSlob is the only NFL QB, black or white, to claim "Black on Black Crime" because T.O. answered a truthful question on ESPN. All T.O. said was that Brett Fahr is a better QB than McSlobb, a fact that is being proven more every day.

PS: T.O. did just fine last season and is doing just fine today and McSlob still $ucks.

Yeah I guess T.O. only had problems with the Eagles? and that was McNabbs fault?? He said and did many other things than that one comment on ESPN (you sure have a clouded memory)what about T.O. and Garcia in SF? As you can see in one of the other posts the stats are facts. Like it or not they are the facts, yours is opinion.
