It’s been an interesting sports week in Philadelphia. Last Sunday, Eagle’s coach Andy Reid benched quarterback Donovan McNabb after the first half. Donavan was playing poorly, but the Eagles were only down 10 to 7. They still had a chance to win the game and keep their slim playoffs hopes alive. Many remain perplexed by the move to yank a former Pro-Bowl quarterback, in favor of a backup with 9 professional snaps to his credit. More disturbing though is the way that Coach Reid handled the situation. McNabb has been the quarterback of the Eagles for the last 10 years. Prior to this, he had never been pulled from a game. Instead of taking Donovan aside and informing him of his decision and the reason for it, Andy had one of his assistant coaches deliver the news to him. To make matters worse, Andy didn’t tell anyone else on the team of the change. They found out when replacement, Kevin Kolb, ran out on the field instead of Donovan.
