Brett Favre is Old, Donovan McNabb is Not as Old
I think the national media, and even the Philly media, is playing the McNabb against Favre storyline out almost as badly as a Terrell Owens suicide attempt. Sure, Andy Reid had a good relationship with Favre back in the last millennium. Sure, Andy Reid has tried to build a west coast offense similar to what they once had in Green Bay during their prime. Sure, Donovan McNabb of 2006 still has the legs which made Favre dangerous back in his prime. Other than that, I'm not seeing much of a storyline.
The Eagles should destroy the Packers tonight on Monday Night Football. As the Packers Fanhouse points out in his nice game preview, the Birds offense should light up the Packers secondary.
I'm looking for a big win from the Birds over the Packers giving them some momentum heading into the October 8th matchup with Terrell Owens.
