Reid says McNabb will be back

The new contract (i.e., the “financial apology”) that Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb received in the offseason included a lot more money but no more years, prompting some to think that McNabb perhaps won’t be back for 2010, the final year of his deal.

Not so, coach Andy Reid said after Saturday night’s deflating loss to the Cowboys, via Sheil Kapadia of philly.com.

McNabb, per Kapadia, even said he’s like to sign another new deal, one that would extend the eleven-year quarterback’s stay beyond 2010.

Still, McNabb has presided over bookend defeats in Texas that resulted in a combined score of 58-14, with McNabb leading the team to only half of those points.  And Eagles fans surely will be clamoring for Kevin Kolb to be the quarterback not only of the future, but also of the present.

For a while on Saturday night, it appeared that Philly faithful would want Mike Vick.  But after that 76-yard touchdown pass-and-run to Jeremy Maclin, a fumble on a fake handoff to Leonard Weaver took some steam out of the suddenly renewed fascination with Vick.

So, as it now stands, Vick likely will be gone but McNabb and Kolb apparently will be back.

Unless Reid was simply trying to build some leverage for the trade talks that could be in the offing for both Vick and McNabb.

    This is the same conversation that happens every-year. He will be back, Reid will be back. Why do people even bother asking???? They have both signed contract extensions

  2. slipkid says: Jan 10, 2010 10:16 AM

    how about bringing back yer running game, jackass…

  3. hayward giablommi says: Jan 10, 2010 10:18 AM

    Of course he’ll be back.
    And then we’ll go through this same song and dance next year after they finish 8-8 and fall further and further away from ever winning a ring under this regime.

  4. clemenza says: Jan 10, 2010 10:22 AM

    Kolb is less mobile than a wooden Indian and would have gotten destroyed in that game

  5. Richm2256 says: Jan 10, 2010 10:22 AM

    What in God’s name do these people see in Donovan McNabb ….. can somebody PLEASE explain that to me?????

  6. Favre On HGH says: Jan 10, 2010 10:22 AM

    76-yard touchdown pass-and-run to Jeremy Maclin
    _______________
    15 yard throw when defender fell down, it was all Maclin. Don’t see Vick going to another team as talented as the Eagles offense next year. Will be great to watch him struggle even more.

  7. twinsanity says: Jan 10, 2010 10:23 AM

    Philly needs to stop the nonsense. They have no better options than McNabb and they know it. Kevin Kolb is not the long term answer.

  8. Fan_Of_ Four says: Jan 10, 2010 10:27 AM

    And Coaches never ever say things they don’t mean. It’s all just speculation so why even bring it up ? The only reason they say anything is because of you dolts in the press some how convinced the League to make it mandatory that they talk to you.

  9. NCEaglesFan says: Jan 10, 2010 10:30 AM

    That’s bad news for Eagles Fans.
    McNabb has never cut it. I question his leadership skills, ability to read defenses, and his judgment. Accuracy is always spotty. He holds onto the ball to long. He seems to have a fear of running the ball when it’s his only option. After 11 years, you’d think the guy had a clue.
    The entire offense follows his lead. He lacks emotion and will never be able to motivate his team.
    I want someone with some fire. He’s cooked and the Eagles will never do anything with him leading the offense. All he does is put the defense in a position to fail.
    End the fans suffering. Take your clown routine to Seattle, Cleveland, Carolina, Oakland, Buffalo. Anyware but Philly. I’ve seen enough.
    Bring on the Kolb. I accept the change.

  10. Real Vikings fans wouldn't cheer for Favre says: Jan 10, 2010 10:32 AM

    McNabb in, Favre out.

  11. ampats says: Jan 10, 2010 10:32 AM

    Eagle fans, be careful what you wish for. Its not all on McNabb why they lost.

  12. KingJoe! says: Jan 10, 2010 10:32 AM

    Well glad to see he spent time evaluating the situation. The Eagles need a fresh start. The core is very young, and they need to get a QB on the same cycle as the rest of the team. With Kolb at QB and a draft focused on defense, linebackers and safeties, the next tens years could exceed the great success of the last ten. If Reid goes into next season with McNabb as the QB, he has said to everyone that he is a one trick pony and the two of them[McNabb adn Reid] will retire together.

    “a fumble on a fake handoff to Leonard Weaver took some steam out of the suddenly renewed fascination with Vick.”
    Don’t be too hard on him. Courage the Cowardly Dog Killer felt the Warewolf bearing down on him and got distracted jus’ a lil bit, jus’ a lil bit.

    11 and 5, minus 5 and 7 = 4… PLEASE, it’s time to make the change. 5 will never win a SB here.
    Take the picks you get for 5 and 7 and fix the D – PHL beat only 1 team w a winning record all year – one of the more inflated 11 win seasons of all time.
    Need a Safety, 2 LB’s (they won’t pay Witherspoon and will lose him / Gocong and Trot are gone) and maybe most importantly an impact D-End to compliment Cole
    What a sorry and PATHETIC way to finish the year, getting your rear end handed to you by the most vile and disgusting entity on the planet . I hate DAL, but you have to give credit to that defense – they are on fire.
    TURN THE PAGE – get what you can for 5 and realize that with or without him, you won’t win w the current philosophy -
    350 and 360lb lineman, and you can’t shove it down the throat of a 3-4…disgusting

  15. IFIXBMWS05 says: Jan 10, 2010 10:35 AM

    trade Mcscabb and trade Vick.

  16. ReasonableBUFanatic says: Jan 10, 2010 10:39 AM

    If Reid truly wants to stick with McNabb, and McNabb adds a few more years to that contract of his, we’ll gladly take Kolb in Buffalo so he can actually get on the field. A Cowher signing followed by a trade for Kolb sounds pretty good (extremely unlikely in both cases, yes…but pretty good). The Bills job would surely be more attractive to any head coach, including The Chin, if Buffalo had an NFL quarterback instead of the pile of crap currently residing here.

  17. promin1 says: Jan 10, 2010 10:39 AM

    AWESOME!! Mchoke sucks and will always suck. Hate him with a passion. From the phone incident against the Giants, to the antics on the sidlines, to the Dancing before the game last night against Dallas. He is nothing but a jerkoff that thinks he is better than he really is and has never won the big game. Keep him in Philly forever!! F the Eagles and their lame as fans and city.

  18. Jeff says: Jan 10, 2010 10:40 AM

    Florio,
    Are we going to see anything written about how the NFL screwed Green Bay and Arizona now that the Cowboys have officially won?
    Now the winner definitely gets a short week to play a team that was off for two weeks. But hey, the Cowboys got to play in primetime, and that’s all that matters. Welcome to the NFL.
    Money and the Cowboys’ selfish interests > competitive disadvantages for the rest of the league

  20. EskinSux says: Jan 10, 2010 10:46 AM

    And the results will be EXACTLY the same…..McNabb simply isn’t a leader. He will pad his stats against lesser teams, and when the pressure mounts, he will show his true colors. After 11 damn years, of the same results over and over again,one would think it’s time for a change, but NO, it will be the same BS again and again. Someone needs to remind him and the 3 bozo’s who run this team that they have accomplished nothing in this last decade….

  21. TheWontonMan says: Jan 10, 2010 10:47 AM

    I agree with NCEaglesFan! How many more years is Mcnabb going to be just good enough to get the Eagles in the playoffs and then let the fans down because he can’t win the big game?
    If they win last week they get a home game AND bye and he comes away with 0 points! Are you kidding me?
    If that were Brady, Rivers, Manning, Roethlisberger etc there is NO WAY they would only put up 7 points in 2 games with that explosive offense. I’m sick of everyone comparing Mcnabb to these great qb’s, These guys win Super Bowls and I have faced the reality that This isn’t going to happen with Mcnabb.
    McCoy, Maclin, Jackson, Celek, Kolb, like it or not that is the future of this team and I am more than ready for it.
    Enough of Mcnabb’s smiling face after he throws an int or loses a big game, I can’t take it anymore

  22. Hooby says: Jan 10, 2010 10:52 AM

    @twinsanity: is mcnabb? mcnabb isnt even the temporary answer.
    im all around sick of mcnabb, have been for some time. i love it when he just bombs it downfield to jackson on the fly and the whole stadium cheers, thats great. but then he goes and throws a short slant behind the receiver, throws a curl route way over the receivers head, and throws a cross into the dirt. its despicable that hes considered one of the best in the nfl. its not that he cant do it, he obviously can because he has. but he doesnt and thats the problem. people can say “well his offensive line” and i cut them off there because good ol donnie number 5, dear friends, is renowned for his ability to avoid the sack and give himself some more time. but we know he doesnt and when he does, rarely, its errant. im just sick of him, the way he cant make easy throws, the way he is overthrowing the very pass he thrives on, the way he grins like a moron when he screws up, just having him here in general.
    at this point i say not just bring in kolb, i say bring in WHOEVER YOU WANT because really anybody would fill the tiny shoes mcnabb left behind. be it draft stock, free agency, or a trade, I DONT GIVE A DAMN. anybody but donnie at this point. and anyone who says it wasnt his fault, wake up and rub your eyes, help yourself to some coffee. its flagrantly his fault.

  23. PhillyHouse says: Jan 10, 2010 10:53 AM

    NCEaglesFan: Let’s break your comments down with facts, and not girly emotional jargo-
    “McNabb has never cut it”: I could bore you with stats, but the bottom line is that he wins. Okay, he doesn’t have a SB, but it more than proves that he “cuts it”
    “I question his leadership skills”: So….are you in the locker room? Are you in the huddle? What are you basing this on? He’s played hurt, and it’s not like his teammates hate him like they hated Ryan Leaf or Rob Johnson or Jeff George. Stupid comment.
    “Accuracy is always spotty”: I love that one. McNabb has the record for most consecutive completions and he’s in the top 5 ALL TIME for lowest interception rate. And he has a higher career completion percentage than Dan Fouts. Look it up if you think I’m lying…
    Hey, I’m mad about last night’s game too. McNabb had a bad game, and he wasn’t good last week either. But if you think McNabb is the only problem the Eagles have, you’re delusional. Their issues run much deeper than that. But you seem like the typical fan who blames the QB, so keep living in the Matrix.

  25. ninerblitz says: Jan 10, 2010 11:02 AM

    Losing Jackson at Center and the lack of running game killed the Eagles. They also need to Beef up the DL. The giant has awaken in Dallas and they are playing up to their talent level. I hate to say but George W. and Jerry Jones could be doing high-fives in the Superbowl.
    To the Eagle fans: You were outmatched this year, you aren’t going to win many games if you can’t protect you QB and stop the run.

    Replace McNAbb now, rebuild the D and move on.
    Asshole is probably already in Arizona.

  28. KingJoe! says: Jan 10, 2010 11:09 AM

    The Eagles could get a 2nd form either Vikes or Panthers for McNabb and a 3rd or 4th for Vick from Buffalo. The second could be used for the development QB and the 3/4 for the power back. Take all their original picks and get LB and Safeties. Or they could simply sign a few more over-rated offensive linemen, keep McNabb and go through this same exercise next year.

    Its funny as a Redskins fan to watch all the comments about how bad McNabb is. You have been contenders pretty much since he has come to your team, yet just because he hasnt won “the big one” to you guys he sucks…laughable. Go as a true Miami fan if Marino “sucked” just because he didnt win a SB. Be happy you at least contend each year! If not I would be happy to have him behind center in D.C!

    As a Philly fan, I am tired of the Andy Reid play calling. Here you have a set of to decent RB’s in LeSean McCoy, Leonard Weaver and Brian Westbrook. Wouldn’t it make sense to, I don’t know, run the god damn ball? At one point, they were breaking off runs at 5 and 6 yards a clip. What good is it to have all of these big ass O-linemen and not let them road grate over some people. Not to mention, with as horrible as McNabb was, those incomplete passes left even more time on the clock. The Eagles “D” was just on the field for too damn long. That defensive display also showed what Brian Dawkins meant to the team.
    Congrats to Dallas for the victory. They clearly earned it and wanted it more.
    Until then……There’s always next year, right?
    Dallas, I fart in your general direction.

    Fouts was a downfield passer. McNabb, not so much. It’s easy to be “accurate” and not throw INTs and complete a high percentage of passes when you mostly throw 2 yard passes. His career passer rating is 86.5, actually pretty pedestrian for a QB that has played in the WCO his entire career. Let’s hear from who many consider to the father of the WCO, Bill Walsh, on how playing in the WCO affects a QB’s stats:
    “Although the offense will raise the completion percentage of just about any quarterback, some are better suited to running it than others. Joe Montana (career passer rating 92.3) was a master, and so is Young (96.8)”

  42. Bwa Ha Ha says: Jan 10, 2010 11:56 AM

    The biggest problem with McNabb this year was the failed attempt to rebuild the offensive line. Peters was only OK, and the Andrews double mess set them behind the eight ball for the whole season. They were competitive only with smoke and mirrors.
    The defense truly missed Dawkins and when Bradley was lost they had a hole in the middle that I could have run through.
    Mc Nabb gets squirrely when he thinks he has no time, that was a lot this season, So, the 1A solution is to try again to rebuild that O line with a 1B solution to get that Defensive middle strengthened.

  45. idrinksport.com says: Jan 10, 2010 12:09 PM

    I think it’s pretty funny hearing everyone think this is McNabb’s fault.
    No Running game and a lack of a big game type WR is how you should see it. They have the speedy slot wr’s in macklin and jackson but don’t have a fitzgerald/boldin wr who is a clear cut #1. This team is far less talented than most analysts see.
    They have a solid Tight End and QB, outside of that they have a bunch of “playmakers”. “playmakers” who consistently drop the ball and are undersized…which have trouble getting off a press coverage.

    “I think it’s pretty funny hearing everyone think this is McNabb’s fault.”
    It’s not all his fault, but he’s a big part of the problem. The biggest problem is that defense. There’s really not a consistent playmaker in the bunch. I don’t want to hear about Asante Samuel, he takes too many risks and can’t recover when he gets burned. They tried to get him to play disciplined but Roy Williams turned him inside out on more than one occasion last night. Sure he had 9 INTs this season. 0 of them came against playoff teams. Really good against the likes of Delhomme, Campbell, Jamarcus Russell, Josh Johnson, Eli Manning, Alex Smith and Kyle Orton, though.

  51. .VoxVeritas says: Jan 10, 2010 12:33 PM

    Another big problem is the fact that Desean Jackson is a one-trick pony. I think he gets scared unless he’s sprinting downfield with just one guy covering him.

  52. alexnexus says: Jan 10, 2010 12:39 PM

    What happened to the Eagles these last two games was the result of:
    a) New/Rookie Defensive Coordinator.
    b) An offense with a philosophy -a plethora of precise and constant pass attempts- that doesn’t fit McNabb’s abilities -never has.
    Or you can look it the other way around: a Pro Bowl QB (scrambles/runs well, has a strong arm) that needs a more balanced offensive philosophy from his coach -a solid running attack.
    c) Injuries/lack of personnel in key roles: LB, S, C, G, T.
    Fix these and we could talk about the Eagles wining the Super Bowl one day.

    Totally agree with you.. An often over-looked part of this was when Philly had the opportunity to bring back Jon Runyan. They could have shifted Winston Justice to RG and well then maybe. That was only the tip of the iceberg with their problems. I am ready for the Kolb era to begin.
    I will admit the Eagles got outplayed, out coached, and outmatched. The better team clearly won. Unlike Vox, I won’t crawl into a witness protection program as he did last year. I pride myself in being a professional sports fan of the Eagles. So having said that I congratulate them on a well-deserved victory.

    @phillyhouse
    you cant say hes not inaccurate when we see week in and week out inaccurate passes. theres no way to defend his passing ability anymore, mostly because it seems that he cant consistently make any throw anymore. i dont have the numbers, but lets take a look at some of the pass routes we call:
    short slant: he rarely throws a perfect slant in stride, wrs almost always have to adjust
    screen: pretty hard to mess up a screen but weve seen him dart it at the rbs knees several times
    streak: in the past 2 weeks he over threw jackson twice, underthrew maclin, and underthrew jackson. and thats supposed to be his strong suit
    comeback: almost guaranteed to put it too low or way over the wrs head
    stats dont mean anythign with mcnabb, because he manages to make the statline look pretty depsite under/over throwing open wrs. watch some replays if you dont believe me

  58. CRM0055 says: Jan 10, 2010 1:24 PM

    Did anyone here even watch the game? Blame McNabb? He had to juke 2 – 3 defenders every time he dropped back to pass, the O line was horrible. Blame the D? it is really hard to keep a team from scoring when your offense is on the sidelines for %80+ of the game. I’m not saying that if the line was able to give McNabb more than 1.5 seconds the Eagles would have won, but maybe it would have been a game, especially if the D could have gotten some rest. The line was dismantled this season. Most of our team was. This team is good, they need to put more work into the line and get back key players like Stew and J. Jackson. Jackson alone would have made this a better game.

    I’m not apologizing for McNabb’s performance last night, but you’re talking out of your much-penetrated posterior. Montana and Young had great passer ratings, they also had Jerry Rice. He’s in the Hall of Fame. He’s pretty good. You should look him up.

    Not surprised that you missed the point. WCO = a lot of high percentage passing. That’s what McNabb does. Leads to high completion percentages, low INT percentages. Get it? They used much more than Jerry Rice in their passing. Steve Young did play one season mostly without Jerry Rice in 1997. Didn’t stop him from completing 67.7% of his passes and registering one of the highest season passer rating of his career (104.7). Of course Montana just happened to luck into a couple of Super Bowl wins before he even met Jerry Rice. You should look that stuff up before you comment on it.

    I hope Donovan AND Reid are back next year. They sure help the Cowboys chances.

    What really pisses me off about this team is that the Eagles need to listen to what the fans want sometimes. Mcnabb is past his prime. It was nice having him for 10 years but his time is up and its time to make a change. Kolb is not the answer but I feel with a little work Vick could be the playmaker he once was. He still shows a lot of promise. They could get a 2nd round pick for Mcnabb and probably a 4th for Vick. So trading Vick is not worth it. He is worth looking at for 5.2 million dollars as our starting QB. If he flops after this year they don’t have to resign him. Mcnabb leaving would free up 10 million next year to sign someone like Peppers. Also, Westbrook is due to make around 11 million I believe. He is either going to accept something around 3 million or he’s out too. In all, the Eagles are in a good situation I think. They should be targeting Taylor Mays with their 1st round pick and a LB in the 2nd round. In free agency, they must look into getting Julius Peppers and another LB.

    Surely no Eagles fans are dumb enough to want Vick on the team any longer. His “success” in yesterday’s game was an easy pass on a trick play which will probably never be usable again.
    He’s a joke, an arrogant, immature sadist who’s never been and never will be a leader. His skills are in decline, he’s over the hill for his style of play, and his contribution to the Eagles this year was basically nil.
    His salary would have been better spent on the O-line, and his snaps would have been better spent further developing their rookies.
    McNabb obviously has a lot of talent and is a good leader. But it’s pretty obvious that things aren’t working out for him and this team. They’d both be better off making a change.
    Eagles: see what Kolb can do for a year, look for a good-value QB in the draft. McNabb–go to one of the many QB-needy teams and turn them around. Browns, Seahawks, 49ers, Broncos all seem like prime opportunities to play his kind of game and have success before he retires.
    And please, let’s speak no more of Vick. He’s the most pathetic joke the NFL has seen in a generation.

    I think Eric Berry out of Tennessee is a better fit for the Eagles defense. Plus all the draft boards hold him higher than Taylor Mays. We’ll see.

    Without a running game, the QBs are at a disadvantage. Due to that fact, I think that McNabb will be back. You simply cannot be a pass-only offense and expect your QB to perform like they have some sort of relief. So McNabb will be back.
    Vick will not be back. Too many teams need a quarterback, and he has experience being a successful, every-down QB in the NFL- with playoff experience… winning on a bad team. That’s a lot of resume. Plus- with a weak quarterback class this draft, this is becoming a no-brainer.
    And Philly can seriously get a first or second-round pick for Vick. Carolina’s got it all but a quarterback. And they have a three-headed monster in the running game. If they had Vick, that attack would be deadly.
    St. Louis needs a bit of everything, but if they drafted O-linemen and kept their RB, Vick would be a great compliment. Plus, they are a dome team. It’s a track on that field.
    There are a lot of places he could go.
    But if McNabb leaves Philly, who would be his replacement? Kevin Kolb? I would absolutely LOVE to see that! Alas, only when McNabb leaves Philly would Philly finally give him the respect he deserves.

    In the past he has also stated that Deuce Staley and Brian Dawkins would be back, and look what happened with them.

    It’s interesting that Eagle fans talk about Romo choking all the time before this year when the playoff losses were not Romo’s fault…
    Karma is a bitch, isn’t it?

    pretty tired of hearing about the cowboy’s playoff short-comings. the bengals haven’t won a playoff game since 91 and no one is ripping them for it. there are plenty of teams that haven’t had playoff success for double digit years yet the cowboys are the focus?
    oh, this is an eagle post…….F the eagles. keep the reid-mcnabb marriage together as long as possible!
