Seriously! For fantasy purposes, he's one of the best in the game. Fantasy-wise, he's had one bad game all year, the Dallas game.

If you watched yesterday's game you would not be asking that.

In the first half I think that he was 0-12 with an INT.

He finished off 12-34 283 ys 3 TD and 2 INT.
But his 91 yd TD to TO was a 5yd dump off that was all TO, same with the Westbrook TD. The TD to Smith was a good pass but so many of the misses were just inacurate. He got sacked and dumped many times but a lot of those were his own fault for not seeing the open guy, not noticing the extra man on the line or not getting rid of the ball.

McNabb is obviously hurt and the pass heavy play calling is not helping but in his last two games McNabb has played very poorly.

I am sad to see Cpepp go - this season has been a lot of fun to watch as a Queens hater. }:-)

The key word is "finished off."

We're on a fantasy football site. Fantasy points matter. I don't care if McNabb was 0 for 100 for 0 yards in the first half if he goes for 400 yards and a handful of TDs in the second half.

Arguing that McNabb "got sacked" or his "misses were just inaccurate" (what misses are accurate?) is moot on a fantasy football site.

McNabb = Fantasy Football Beast....#2 QB in standard Yahoo behind Carson Palmer.

Ask Hasselbeck about last year.

Yes, he got off to a terrific start but in his last 3 games he has been the #24, #14, #4 QB respectively and has looked awful, being bailed out by Westy and TO to even finish that high.

There is no doubt that he is hurt and that he is not the #2 QB in reality right now.

If I coached an NFL team there are many other QBs I would want over him to start for me right now. In fantasy (and I have him on one team right now - just gave Cornbread Ronnie Brown for him) I am very nervous with him as my starter because I don't think that he will last all season and he does not seem to be improving.

While I hate to agree with BH, the truth is painfully obvious. Who cares how the touchdowns came? So what if TO ran 90 yards for a TD and Westbrook barreled through 3 defenders to score? In the end, McNabb still threw for 283 yards and three touchdowns.

Don't get "real life" and fantasy football mixed up. Just look at the stats I posted, man. The Eagles could lose every game for the rest of the season but McNabb, TO, and Westbrook are still gonna be fantasy gold.
