According to ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio, via ProFootballTalk.com, a senior Philadelphia Eagles official has told him that there is right now no favorite to land quarterback Donovan McNabb. That means head coach Andy Reid has lost the power struggle, which means he will most likely be gone soon.
According to earlier reports, Reid wants to keep McNabb. The reason being Reid’s contract expires in four years and McNabb would most likely retire then.
On the other hand Eagles management wants to keep quarterback Kevin Kolb. That most likely means owner Jeffery Laurie stepped in and decided McNabb is the guy that is going to be traded.
Now, don’t get me wrong the Eagles management no matter who gets traded will want to keep Reid. However, what will most likely happen is that Reid will retire sooner than anticipated.
In the end, unless Kolb turns out to be just as good as McNabb the Eagles are making a big mistake.
