Loyalty is a quality that few of us demonstrate or care to in the real world not alone the world of the National football League.

Loyalty over the almighty dollar right? Keeping your better players and having those players want to play for you is the symbiotic relationship that wins world championships.

It would be fair to say Andy Reid is loyal to Donovan McNabb and quite frankly maybe to a fault. Reid has reiterated that Donovan is his starting quarterback for 2010.

Is this loyalty or blindness? It depends on how you measure success.

Do you measure success by being competitive over a period of time all the while generating oodles of revenue for owner Jeffrey Lurie or is success measured by winning multiple world championships at the cost of everything else including loyalty or as I should say blind loyalty.

Air guitar, slapstick comedy, sluggishness not withstanding, it is time for the Philadelphia Eagles to change their direction, change their course, and either move McNabb for this organization's overall health or Reid for the fans dream of ever winning a championship.

As it stands now it appears the city, the fans, and the entire organization may not ever enjoy the emotion of raising the Lombardi trophy.

Reid and McNabb have won many games together but never the "big game". Four NFC championship losses, a Super Bowl loss, and now the debacle in Dallas. It may be time.
