The report was that McNabb missed practice yesterday. I instantly thought, "Good for the Eagles, again thinking outside the box."
First there was the touchdown pass to Todd Herremans in the Seattle game. Then on Sunday night there was DeSean Jackson in the wildcat formation, taking it in for six. Big Andy, getting all creative on us.
Is such creativity continuing for the Bengals' game? Was McNabb absent from practice so he could fly early to Cincinnati?
An early arrival would allow No. 5 to begin throwing days early, allow him to sort out his throwing mechanics. And when the first quarter rolls around, Donovan will actually be ready to roll, not having to waiting one-and-a-half quarters to find his rhythm. Passes would hit the WRs in the hands, not sail over their heads or land 10 yards short.
Oh wait, it turns out that McNabb is still in Philly and missed practice because of personal reasons. Damn.
