So we once again come across the Eagles BYE week, unofficially the mid-point of the Eagles season, despite only being six games in so far. This is where, historically, fans and analysts (and hopefully coaches) assess the team, what has gone well, what has gone wrong and where things are going. We are no different, and as has been tradition, we invited our friend Jason Brewer from Bleeding Green Nation to join in on the Eagles conversation. We talk the season so far, the Cowboys game this week, and even dip into the Donovan McNabb pool for a bit.
What we discussed:
Eagles grade at the BYE week has to be an ‘F’
We talk how the Eagles played against the Redskins
The Eagles have three straight Home games coming up against the Dallas Cowboys, Chicago Bears and Arizona Cardinals
Sunday Night Football… which Dallas team will show up?
The Eagles need to beat Dallas to instill confidence in us
Out-think, not out-stink! (quote from Todd)
We talk a bit about Terrell Owens and Donov...

In response to a report questioning his work ethic, Donovan McNabb said he has been doing everything coaches ask of him to be prepared and said he hasn’t been late to meetings.

Things got ugly last season in Washington when Mike Shanahan benched QB Donovan McNabb. Now the veteran's been demoted in Minnesota, and while he's not happy, he says he's not a distraction.
Donovan McNabb stood alone on the sideline Sunday, hands on his hips, a headset in his ear. For the second year in a row, one of the most talented quarterbacks in a generation again was a backup, this time replaced by an unproven rookie for the punchless Minnesota Vikings.
Replacing McNabb was Christian Ponder, representing all the talent and potential that, 13 years ago, McNabb...
The Minnesota Vikings gave 2011 first round draft pick Christian Ponder his first start against the defending Super Bowl champs last weekend and, all things considered, he played fairly well. Ponder completed 13 of his 32 passes for 219 yards with 2 TD’s and 2 INT’s. This was his first pass attempt of the [...]
Although Donovan McNabb is only two years removed from the Philadelphia Eagles organization, it seems like a lifetime has passed since he was an effective NFL quarterback. McNabb’s fall from grace has been rapid, and as we all know his short stay with the Redskins went horribly to say the least. At this point, there [...]

In one game, Christian Ponder managed to spark the Vikings offense in a way that Donovan McNabb never really did through six games. Despite being less “accurate” from a completion percentage standpoint (Ponder was 13-32, McNabb is at 60% this season), Ponder helped Minnesota go 9-16 on third downs, hit a 72-yarder to Michael Jenkins, and threw two touchdown passes.Third downs...
By PackerChatters.com guest writer Jon Meerdink, Games very rarely end in ties in the modern NFL. In fact, it happens so rarely that some players don’t even know it can happen at all (we’re looking at you, Donovan McNabb). There was a time, though, when a 0-0 tie prevented the Green Bay Packers from securing [...]
