McNabb out for the year: Effects on Eagle's offensive stars.

Postby Football Fan » Sun Nov 19, 2006 5:02 pm

It is a no brainer that R. Brown, Stallworth, LJ Smith, and Westbroook will be affected greatly with the loss of McNabb and the new QB of Jeff Garcia, but will it be enough for people to start benching those players?

Westbrook will still be himself, but I feel that Jeff Garcia will be favoring LJ Smith and be going less to the WRs due to this absence. I don't know if I should now drop R. Brown - dilemma!

I agree that Westbrook's value goes up, but I wouldn't say all the other weapons in Philadelphia are rendered worthless. Garcia is an 8-year veteran who has substantial expeience in the West Coast offense. While his stints in Cleveland and Detroit weren't great, he didn't have the talent or the schemes to succeed. If he was a rookie or a relative newcomer, I would say L.J. Smith's value would see a significant bump, but this isn't Romo, Jason Campbell or Gradkowski. This guy has been around the block (for better or worse).

LJ Smith and Westbrooks stock both go up.

It was evident he looked alot to LJ towards the end of this game.

I agree with everyone else. Westy + LJ Smith go up in value, while the WRs plummett a little.

How about this for a thought: Westbrook's value doesn't go up.

If the offense suffers with McNabb out, I think the WHOLE offense suffers. I'm particularly dubious of the argument that Westbrook's value increases because of the fact that he catches so many passes. Short passes, yes, but short passes are, sometimes, a luxury that a struggling offense doesn't have. It's run, run, and pass for 3rd and 8.

Westbrook's running may not be so effective either if opponent's don't fear the deep pass.

NBC says the Eagles haven't decided who will start at QB, Garcia or Feeley. I'd have to guess it would be Garcia, but would anyone else care to speculate?

Uhm, but McNabb got hurt in the 2nd quarter and Westy still ended up with 100 yards and 12 receptions for 46 yards, so I don't see how your argument can stand. . .
