Re: Donovan McNabb sounds skeptical of Chip Kelly’s offense

I do think he has a poinr as running the amount of plays they are will wear down players and lead to fatigue and injuries later in the season.I can see them being great sep-nov but falking away in December and a first round playoff exit.

McNabb does come across as a bitter old man these days in general.

The more I see him, the more it appears to be true. He has a real negative/critical manner about him that just doesn't mesh with his marginal success as a player.

Anybody catch Ray Lewis in the MNF pregame with Steve Young and, who I thought because I wasn't paying that close attention, Rob Rubick? It seemed to me he was trying too hard to appear intelligent/engaging while searching for those hard-hitting, pertinent questions all investigative reporters search for, .

Hey, give him a chance I guess, but I don't think he's gonna' make it.

What exactly is the benefit of aiming at running 90 plays a game in the NFL?
What is the benefit of only using half the clock on every snap?

If you are losing in the latter part of the 4th quarter by more than 7, ok, but otherwise, aiming at 80-90 offensive snaps, seems to me Vick is going to be hurt and in IR by week 4 instead of his usual week 8-9.
Their is no benefit.

Saints are even dialing back more and playing ball control to keep the defense off the field more than ever.

Its called Complimentary football, something the Eagles refuse to do.

McNabb never has anything positive to say about anything. Ever.

Was Rush right when he was briefly on ESPN in stating he was not as good as he was being touted at the time?

Re: Donovan McNabb sounds skeptical of Chip Kelly’s offense

McNabb is right for once... After that first game defenses have already caught up to his option offense and that's why they sit at 1 - 2...

Re: Donovan McNabb sounds skeptical of Chip Kelly’s offense

Just going off my own two eyes, the Eagles were clearly gassed and dinged up at the end, in their game I watched against the Redskins. It says a lot, that the Redskins were methodically able to come back from such a huge 26-7 deficit, and make it so close at the end. That's basically an Achilles Heel type thing right there. Hate to say it, but it is a lot like a college game, where a 21 point lead at halftime, is basically nothing, it's worthless.
