csnphilly – “To me, it’s just a fad,” McNabb said. “I enjoyed the West Coast offense, I enjoyed the no-huddle and two-minute drill we ran, but I’m not trying to run 90 plays in a game,” he said Wednesday night after arriving in Philly. “I don’t know if any offensive player would want to run 90 plays in a game. If you’re running 90 plays in a game, that means your defense is pretty awful and you’re running entirely too many plays. “At Oregon, [Kelly] may have ran 75 plays in a game, but you’re not going to run 85, 90, not in the NFL, and teams and defensive coordinators are a lot better than what you’re going to see in college.” “I tip my hat off to what they’ve been doing the first two weeks, but there comes a time if you’re up by 14, up by 21, maybe with about 11, 10 minutes to go, it’s time to go into a mode where you’re trying eat up some clock,” McNabb said. “You can’t continue to run that fast-paced offense because it continues to run down not only their defense, but it wears your offense down, too.”
It certainly says something about how a city feels about the greatest quarterback in team history when they have to get Brian Dawkins to introduce the guy getting his number retired just to ensure he isn’t booed out of the stadium. And the reason why the Eagles have to take precautions like this is because of quotes like the one above. Nobody exaggerates his own NFL achievements more than Donovan McNabb. In his head he’s the greatest QB of all time. It’s baffling how out of touch with reality he is and how little problem he has talking about things he doesn’t understand. How much research did you do on Chip Kelly and his offense and his philosophy yourself, Donovan? Did you talk to the man personally or talk to any sources close to him or watch game film and tape of Chip explaining his thought process or did you just rehash the same shit everyone else has said? Exactly.
McNabb deserves to be cheered tonight for what he did for Philadelphia in his career, but this should probably be the last time. And the cheers for him shouldn’t be as loud as the ones for Andy. I’m so sick of this fat dork. I’m sick of his face and his voice and his soup and his lame opinions. Let’s hope Fox Sports 1 collapses just so this joke is out of a job.
