It’s a sad week for the Philadelphia Eagles. As many of you know Donovan McNabb tore the ACL in his right knee last week and could be sidelined between 8-12 months after surgery. Well, if that wasn’t bad enough, Mike Bartrum will be out for the rest of the season because of a herniated disk in his neck which might threaten his 13-year career. There has been some speculation that Bartrum might retire at the end of the season. Let’s hope he takes Doctor’s advice before he ends up in a wheelchair.

We couldn’t make it through the rest of the game against the Tennessee Titans, after Dononan McNabb tore a knee ligament during the second quarter and had to leave. Jeff Garcia filled his spot, even managed a little toss that added a touchdown for us, but #3 draft pick Vince Young and the otherwise generally pathetic Titans were not going to let their opportunity for a win against the Philadelphia Eagles pass them by.
This NFL season has seen a lot of injured quarterbacks, not to mention some shuffling around of healthy ones, for instance, Romo swapped in for Bledsoe by the Cowboys, but I was really hoping to see McNabb leading the Eagles through a complete season. He has had mid-year injuries that left him benched for the season twice before in five years. Donovan’s got to be totally frustrated–I hope Eagles fans won’t end up that way as well.
