Well folks, it appears that it is no longer a matter of if, but only a matter of when and where Donovan McNabb will be shipped out of town. I for one am pretty pumped. Though the Eagles have been very successful over the past 10 years with Dirty Don at the helm, he has become the embodiment of the Eagles failure to win the big one. With guys like Westbrook and Dawkins leaving the nest over the past few years, it is time to get rid of Donovan McNabb and get a fresh start at quarterback for this franchise.
It is time to turn over a new leaf ladies and germs. Donovan McNabb has been given 10 years to take this team to the promised land. The Eagles have signed key free agents like T.O. and Jevon Kearse, drafted very well, and given McNabb time to get over his constant injuries to no avail as he has not brought us a Super Bowl. 10 years on one team is quite a long time, but clearly McNabb is entering the twilight of his career on a team making a youth movement. He was given his chance to win it all, but ultimately the failure of the team falls on his shoulders. McNabb's redeeming qualities now are that he is a veteran that could help sustain a team and mentor a young quarterback. Enter the Raiders, Rams, Bills and Browns.
While I have been awfully critical of Donovan McNabb during his tenure in Philly; the passes into the ground, the constant injuries, smiling when he makes a terrible play, I also know that he is a good player. McNabb would be a great addition to a struggling team without a face to its franchise. He's still got some fire left in the furnace and could put some butts in the seats for a struggling team. He just has no value left in Philadelphia.
In Philly, it is time to start the Kolb administration. Kevin Kolb is the future of this team. He is young, talented and how do you say, Caucasian? I hate to come off as a racist, but it is a known fact that only one black quarterback has ever won the Super Bowl. Kevin Kolb is just the guy to take the Iggs and their new cast of young stars to new heights.
If the Eagles were to get a second round pick for McNabb, that would be a steal. They could use it to help improve either their secondary or either line, thus strengthening their team overall. Not to mention that the Eagles still have Michael Vick if Kevin Kolb doesn't work out or gets injured. It will be difficult to replace a guy that has been the leader of this team for 10 years, but it is a necessary move in order to move forward with the franchise. The Eagles should have everything they need to compete in place in the next few years, and I foresee no drop off in competitiveness with Kevin Kolb as the full time starter. If there is, you better believe that the other fat man who has been around for 10 years will be the next to go. I for one will be celebrating the ushering in of the Kolb administration with the adding of chocolate to milk.
