I think they proved that already. He got hurt in the 1st game. After that game, here are his stats:
Game 2: 23/29 for 342 yards and 5 TDs
Game 3: 30/52 for 365 yards and 2 TDs, 1 INT
Game 4: 33/48 for 369 yards and 3 TDs, 1 INT
Game 5: 13/26 for 131 yards
Even including Game 5, he averaged over 300 yards passing, 2.5 TDs, and 0.5 INTs and the team was 3-1. Include Game 1, McNabb has averaged 292 yards.
What else does he have to prove? Play on a broken ankle? Oh yeah, he did that a few years ago and won the game. Threw for 4 TDs too. Stay classy!
Hey BH, he doesn't have to prove it to me, I could care less! I'm just saying that the Eagles have to prove that they can continue to be a powerhouse in the NFC East. After losing to Dallas, a lot of eyebrows were raised regarding the prowess of the Eagles. Whether it's McNabb's injury or not, they have to remain dominant if they hope to win that division. To be blown out by DAL and barely eke out a win in KC and against OAK...a win is a win, but it's easy fodder for the critics. That's why it's an important game for them (which was the original point of my post and this thread).
