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

How did Westbrook, the WR's and TE do when McNabb was out with the broken leg in 02-03 (I don't have the data off hand)? I think that might be a good starting point for how this will affect things this year.

In the '02 season it was Westbrooks rookie season so we can't really show Westbrook's numbers when McNabb went down in '02 with a broken leg.
A win next week and all is forgotten.

Check how Westbrook's touches went up in the past when McNabb was injured.

He is their only real weapon now, believe me, they'll use him until his legs fall off

LOL

I have a feeling that AJ Feely will be starting very soon.

They brought Garcia in when Detmer was still the back up, then AJ was cut and the Eagles grabbed him back. Andy Reid likes Feely and he has had success in the past running this offense.

LJ had only 1 catch for 5 yards with McNabb, then caught 4 other passes for 52 yards and a TD with Garcia... I think Garcia will be throwing to him a lot more and I think Westy will see a lot of action.

I think Reggie Brown and Stallworth will be most affected- I dont think Garcia will be able to get the ball downfield.

Reggie Brown and Stallworth take big hits, because Garcia can't throw down the field very well.

I would trade them if possible.

Westbrook's numbers will be fine.

Anyone think Garcia will be benched for Feely? How will that affect everything?

Do you think that if the Eagles run the wheels off of Westy, it would be a good idea to pickup C-Buck? The probability of Westy getting hurt just went up.

I think that Feeley will end up the starter. He filled in adequately in 2002. He can throw it down better than garcia, and Reid trusts him ok.

I think brown takes a hit stallworth still might have some big games, or more to the point, okay games. This has to be run, run, run now.
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.
