No lost love to Andy Reid and Mcnabb

I am never one to hope a guy gets injured, but when you are up 31-10 and you continually attempt to score someone is going to get hurt.  We broke Mcnabbs rib on a TD run that meant absolutely nothing at the time he ran it it.  I really hope that Mcnabb misses as many weeks as possible and the eagles lose every freaking game between know and then, and honestly how about a little courtesy from the eagles.  Is it really that important to continue to blitz the hell out of us?!?  Seriously, every time they had the ball they were going all out to score.  Whats the point on a 30 y/o QB running in a TD when you are up 31-10.  All I'm saying is you get what you deserve and Andy Reid deserves to lose his QB for a couple of weeks after that idiotic play calling.

Why should they stop if we couldn't stop them?

Because you end up losing your starting QB for several weeks on a play that means nothing.  Never said they had to, but when you play like that someone is bound to get hurt.  I would hope that we would have most of our guys off the filed and just run the clock down if we were up by 21 pts and the other team could not stop us.

It should not matter who is in the game and what the score is. I would never want a team to "take it easy" or not put their best team/game on the field. This is the NFL, if it wass pop warner and the kids are 10 years old and you are afraid of hurting their feelings then I understand. These guys are making alot of money to compete. It was 31-10 with almost 7 minutes left in the 3rd quarter when McNabb went down. I know it would of taken alot but the game was by no means over when McNabb got hurt. I am really hoping that this emberrassment wakes this team up and we see a different outcome this week. I am sure that Atlanta is not going to let up or pull players out no matter what the score is.

Amen. Its called professional football for a reason.  It isn't Pop Warner or Flag football.  These guys get paid a king's ransom to perform and not take it easy on the opposition or worry about their feelings.

I thought that the Eagles showed a complete lack of class and sportsmanship by putting their first string defense back in on Carolina's final drive. The game was won, why do it? That is not the way to treat others. I have put the Eagles on my Hate list, along with the Cowboys and New England.

Re: No lost love to Andy Reid and Mcnabb

For me it wasn't so much that their starters were on the field, but that they continued to ruthlessly blitzing us once the game numerically over.  At that point they were basically kicking us in the face when we were already dead.  At that point they were doing nothing more than attempting to embarass us.  I know a lot of you guys talk like its no big deal, but sometimes you need to know when to show mercy.  Its okay to beat someone handidly, but I don't think it is ever okay to playing to embarass another team.  Would you guys really enjoy the Panthers doing that to another team?  Honestly?
