Of course McNabb and Westbrook will increase these averages when they return from injury - but this team just won 34-14 last week. Sure it was the Chiefs, but I think these numbers are a testament to how this team has re-built itself while remaining competitive....

The Eagles organization is one of the best, no doubt about it. They seem to know when to cut older players, right before they decline, and don't overpay certain positions.

If McNabb wasn't so inconsistant in big games you would hear more about them being the model franchise, instead of the Patriots all the time.

I wouldn't say that's the reason. Our whole team has been inconsistent in big games. The Eagles are 9-6 in playoff games with McNabb at QB - and have never been one and done. I wouldn't call that terrible...
