Former Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb is not optimistic about the direction his old team is heading in.
Asked on CSN Philadelphia about the Eagles’ Sunday night game with the Cowboys, McNabb said he thinks quarterback Nick Foles, playing behind a beat-up offensive line, is going to have a miserable night.
“I think this will be a nightmare game,” McNabb said. “And now, when you’re makeshifting different guys, there’s no chemistry, there’s no continuity, there’s an identity problem with this team, and I think it’s only going to get worse before it gets better.”
McNabb said the Cowboys must be thrilled at the prospect of facing a rookie quarterback behind a bad line.
“You’re playing against guys who are probably chomping at the bit at this particular point watching this offensive line,” McNabb said. “It’s really bad for Nick Foles because this being his first year, and his first couple games getting under his belt, he’s not really able to gain that confidence that he needs.”
At the rate the 3-8 Eagles are going, they may not win another game this season. Which would mean they’d finish with their worst record since another 3-13 season, in 1998. When they earned the second overall pick in the 1999 NFL draft, which they used to draft McNabb.
