Alright, we haven't been blogging lately so I figured I'd throw out some thoughts for us to chew on. Looking at our schedule when the season began, Poplar and I discussed that the combination of the rough offseason along with a tough schedule and an improved NFC East were going to equate to a 9-7 or 10-6 record at best, and probably a miss on the playoffs (or maybe a wildcard bid). The Birds had a nice run over the last few years, and eventually the other teams catch up or inevitably a team runs out of gas, at least temporarily. Even the Patriots had an off-year a couple years ago after winning a couple Super Bowls. Now, with McNabbs' injuries and a sense that there isn't a lot of fire left when you look at the players' faces, do you guys think McNabb should just go have the surgery and call it a year? I suppose if he can suffer through the season, he'll have ups and downs and we still may have a shot at the playoffs, but he looked like he was in a lot of pain yesterday and was really ineffective. Detmer's not getting us to the playoffs, but maybe it's better than watching our star suffer all season and maybe do something damaging to his body. The Cowboys are a solid team now, but no way are they that good - we were beaten to the point of embarassment in every single aspect of the game. Another thing is that if we are going to win a Super Bowl, we still need some power in our running game - the Brook is the Man, but he can't get the tough yards when you need them. Plus, teams know that we're going to throw 50 times a game and they can key to that. Actually, my opinion is that McNabb should hold out as long as possible in hopes that we can make it to the playoffs somehow, but after yesterday....well, as Joey Lawrence used to say "Whoa."
