McNabb Wants Playmakers January 9, 2008Posted by Marquis Chapman in Football, NFL, Sports.
On his blog yardbarker.com, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb made it known that he wants some changes made to the Eagles roster next season. McNabb wants more playmakers on an Eagles team that finished the season with an 8-8 record.
“Now that the season is over and we are concentrating on 2008, I hope we are able to secure some playmakers in all three phases of the game. Maybe some of those playmakers are already on the roster but have struggled with injuries, myself included, that have held us back a little.”
McNabb added, “I’m surprised that anyone would have a problem with me, or anyone else in the organization, expressing a desire to bring in more quality players. We were 8-8. There is room for improvement. This is a competitive sport. It’s about putting together the best players, the best team, and giving yourself the best chance to win.”
I know there are people out there that think McNabb should be traded, but McNabb is right. While he wants playmakers in all three phases of the game, the Eagles definitely need a playmaker at the wide receiver position. Brady has Moss, Manning has Harrison/Wayne, Favre has Driver, Romo has Owens, and even Eli has Burress. McNabb has… Kevin Curtis.
Having a playmaker at the wide receiver position would definitely take the load off of McNabb and the “do everything” Brian Westbrook. While I admit, McNabb hasn’t looked that great the last couple years, every quarterback should have that guy on the team that can go deep and make plays.
