Blame Reid The GM

Are you tired of saying or hearing that McNabb has to play better for the Eagles to win?

Did you ever stop to think that maybe quarterback Donovan McNabb is playing at his highest level, and that there is no more to give? If not, well maybe you should start thinking that way.

I am not taking anything away from McNabb's talents. He is still in the upper echelon of QBs in this league, but at the same time the man does have his shortcomings.

After 10 years is it really realistic to expect McNabb to improve or change his ways? At this point McNabb is who he isnaccept it and save your bitching for Andy Reid the GM.

McNabb is Reid's guy, 10 seasons together, through all the highs and lows. Reid knows the makeup of McNabb better than anyone.

Despite this season after season Reid continues to not surround McNabb with better talent to compensate for the things that McNabb can't do, and to a lesser extent Reid the coach needs to game plan better for McNabb's weaknesses.

As we enter yet another off-season without the Lombardi, Reid the GM has another opportunity to bring in the personnel and talent to maximize the QB that he has. If Reid again fails why should we as fans expect the ending to be any different for the Eagles next season.

Until the players around McNabb change, the Eagles, like their QB, will continue to be good, but in the end they will never be the greatest.
