  1. I’ve heard enough of NFL people and media people talking about how McNabb was mistreated and shouldn’t have been benched.
    While it was true that benching him for Rex G wasn’t going to win the game, NOBODY is talking about his poor decision making and performance.
    Shanahan gives lots of reasons to be criticized, but McNabb is making bad decisions, not thinking, and inaccurate every week. Makes a good play, then kills ya the next drive. Every week.
    All this time later, Rush, they STILL won’t criticize McNabb. You were right.

  2. I realize you got this mistake from the article you linked, but the Ravens current sack leader is Haloti Ngata with 4, not Suggs.
    Far be it from The Sun to worry about things like fact-checking.

  3. jeeeeez Eli is having a baby,,,
    I hope that mongoloid, half asleep, half drooling look on his face isnt hereditary… at least they can take the same small yellow bus to school and work.

  4. You know I notice that also how come everyone is afraid to criticize McDud. I personally have never thought he was that good. I don’t care if he is white, green, yellow, or black as a QB he is not in the top 10.

  5. The reality is both McNabb and Shanahan are bad. People forgot that Shanahan’s teams quit on him the second halves of virtually all his seasons after Elway retired, and they also forgot that McNabb alienated his Eagles teammates to where they always played harder for his backups (particularly Jeff Garcia) than for him.

  6. Considering that Belichick doesn’t even refer to Mangini by name, why would anyone believe that there is a relationship?
