Having the whole RB core back together with Buckhalter healthy probably won't help either. I don't think you really have a valid point other than being all over McNabb, no offense.
I agree that McNabb probably
won't improve on his numbers last season, but the possibility still exists.
The biggest offensive problem that faced Philadelphia last year was the lack of a viable second reciever. Brian Westbrook became the outlet McNabb needed when Owens wasn't open or available on a play. Now with Ryan Moats, there will probably be more designed passes to Westbrook while they still have a good running choice behind the line of scrimmage to hand it off to. This is just an extra weapon now at McNabb's disposal. The Eagles also replaced Freddie Mitchell with Reggie Brown. Brown will definitely be a much more viable weapon than Fred-ex was last season. Now this is all speculative, but McNabb still could

Based on a 25/4, 10/6 scale.
On the season :549 attemps, 4717 yards, 39 TD = 8.59 yds/att. 294.8 yds/game. 2.44 TD/game. 21.55 FFBpts/game
With Moss playing :382 attemps, 3538 yards, 30 TD = 9.26 yds/att. 321.6 yds/game. 2.73 TD/game. 23.78 FFBpts/game
Without Moss :167 attemps, 1179 yards, 9 TD = 7.06 yds/att. 235.8 yds/game. 1.80 TD/game. 16.63 FFBpts/game
On the season :89 carries, 406 yards, 2 TD - 4.56 yds/carry. 25.38 yds/game. 0.125 TD/game. 3.288 FFBpts/game
With Moss playing :62 carries, 289 yards, 2 TD - 4.66 yds/carry. 26.27 yds/game. 0.182 TD/game. 3.719 FFBpts/game
Without Moss :27 carries, 117 yards, 0 TD - 4.33 yds/carry. 23.40 yds/game. 0.000 TD/game. 2.340 FFBpts/game
FINAL FFB VALUES:
On the season : 24.84 FFBpts/game.
With Moss playing : 27.50 FFBpts/game.
Without Moss : 18.97 FFBpts/game.
Now try telling me he proved it last season. Granted Moss missed time the same time that Kleinsasser, etc. did, but it's still certainly noteworthy.
To me, Culpepper and McNabb are both big risks this season. McNabb has only had one top-three fantasy finish, last season, and before that he had back-to-back finishes at number thirteen. Culpepper is losing Moss, so his stock is going to take a hit. With the depth that there is at QB this year, I wouldn't take a stab at one of these two early.
