Whether he plays or not, i think this helps the RBs and TEs the most. The Saints will blitz McNabb and try to put pressure on him and his ribs which will mean quick throws, ie short throws. I think westbrooks value goes up. I don't think McNabb plays personally, too early in the season to lose you star QB for even more time. Even if they start Kolb, I still think he throws more to the RBs and TEs since he is still learning the Offense and can't make all the reads and again, he will be getting a lot of pressure from the Saints and have to dump the ball short.
"He's pretty sore," coach Andy Reid said Monday. "He's going to try and battle through it. He'll struggle to practice. He's going to do everything he possibly can to try to play. We'll see how that goes. He's staying optimistic about that."
McNabb is not ruling himself out for the Eagles' game against New Orleans next Sunday.
