Mike Bartrum’s Career in Jeopardy

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.

Can Philly Make It Without Donovan?

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.

Eagles Were Rested and Ready

Of course, we were not the only team able to perform well against the Washington Redskins so far this season. But it was nice to have a solid 27-3 victory over an NFC East rival. We need to remember what we did and do it again December 10th. No point in splitting with the 'Skins the way the Dallas Cowboys did.
