FA quarterback--McMahon

Eagles | McMahon released
Mon, 20 Mar 2006 11:16:56 -0800

The Philadelphia Eagles have announced the release of QB Mike McMahon.
Might be worth picking up as a replacement for Bouman. Payton should be able to do something with him and he and McPherson would get plenty of reps in camp.

I've always liked the guy and felt like he's never been put in a situation to succeed.

RE: FA quarterback--McMahon

Great idea BMG, I was just about to post this. I always liked him, especially when he was in Detroit. I always liked seeing him go in if Harrington got hurt or pulled or something. He's fast, smart, and has a decent arm. I wouldn't mind seeing him as our backup instead of Bouman.

Brees, McPherson and McMahon would be a nice combo, once thing is for sure, Bouman has to get packing, I feel McPherson will make a good QB one day soon, as said, he needs reps and lots of them to help him to develop as a QB in the NFL.

Seems like every Eagle game I watched last year, he was throwing INTs, which were in turn being run back for TDs. I liked him too, last year, b4 the Eagles signed him. He's "spunky", "leader", "fighter", ect, is what I said. He is definitely not much of an upgrade over Bouman.

Sure he is, he had a bad year with the Eagles in a new scheme with ABSOLUTELY NO TARGETS to throw to. He came in after T.O. was gone, and the team as a whole was at an all-time low in morale. I think his play with Detroit shows that he is a good QB.

I'd rather see us pick up Joey Harrington as a backup.

I say we loose Bouman, and sign Mike and then let him and AMAC fight it out for the #2 spot.

TheDeuce, it's interesting that you can use the low morale and no talent around him excuse for McMahon. The Saints lose Deuce, Horn's on/off injured, and oh yeah they didn't play a home game all year. But you can't use those excuses for Bouman? It makes no sense, either a player can or can't use the surrounding circumstances or not. Don't say it's OK for one and not for another.
