Just thought this article was pretty funny but also true in many aspects.

Making it to the NFC Championship is not easy, and I think they're starting to see that right now, that getting to the playoffs and going to the NFC Championship consistently, it's just not that easy.

We probably would have won a super bowl or two if Andy ever had a good qb.

Why has Donny Drama been such a tool since leaving Philly?

He's tarnished the marginally good image he once had with Eagle fans.

Donovan needs to shut up. Any eagle fan with half a meatball of an IQ knows winning isn't easy

I don't think most people think winning is easy, they just have a high expectation to succeed.

Donovan McNabb is better if you don't actually care about anything he says.

Seriously. I love(d?) McNabb, but it's getting harder and harder to still like this guy with the way he's been acting since his departure.

Knew this thread was coming. Rolling Eyes What he said was the absolute truth. I've said it for years. People especially in this forum were so obsessed with not winning the SB they never realized how spoiled and self entitled they had become. As though what occured in the AR/McNabb era happens all the time. I just hope we don't turn into the SF, Dal, MIA, BUF of the NFL when they too lost a true Franchise QB. Let alone be unlucky enough to join the Rams, Browns and Raiders in obscurity.

What he said may indeed be true, but let's not sit here and act like he did anything meaningful after he left Philly. We weren't going to do any better had we kept him, yet it still seems to me that he's a little hurt over being dealt. Remember when he beat us in that first game after he left, and he was in their locker room saying "the Eagles will regret this" all happy faced. Laughing

We basically are the Browns Laughing
Rich history, nothing to show for in the modern era.

Our fans just have New England-like expectations.

You don't know that for certain though. Mcnabb had led the offense to two straight Eagles scoring records with at that time Rookies (Maclin/McCoy) and 2nd year players (Desean/Celek) at all of the skilled posistions. Who's to say with certainty he wouldn't or couldn't have grown with Desean, Mac ,Celek and Shady? One thing you could never say is that Donovan didn't know AR offenses through and through. The one thing I know without a doubt and unequivocally is that a Donovan McNabb led eagle team would never had set back to back records for TO's in a season! He Damn sure wouldn't have Mark Sanchez / Mike Vick esq type TO's, that's for sure. I'm not suggesting a SB or anything crazy like that but to say we would have done nothing with him based on two dysfunctional situations in Wash/Minny is absurd. I long for the days of killing goffers instead of 3 TO's a gm on avg. over the past two.

True comments, but I can taste the bitterness through the computer.
