What Would Buddy Do?
I’ll admit it: I don’t trust the Panthers

look out for the killshot, 5After much hemming and/ or hawing, Donovan McNabb will return to the field tonight against the Carolina Panthers in the Eagles’ second preseason game. Andy Reid says that the first-team offense will play about a half, but that Dunavin might not go much more than the first quarter.

To be honest, I’m not really sure why he has to play at all, other than to prove that he can?

The Eagles offensive line will be without Shawn Andrews, and the mix-and-match squad out there on Monday night against the Ravens looked extremely confused against blitz pickups. Do we really need 5 out there in an imaginary game against another team that likes to take its shots at the quarterback?

As per a long-ago posting on my other site, the Panthers have effectively deployed The KillShot in the past, specifically against Dunavin to clinch a trip to the Super Bowl. I don’t want to point fingers, but it doesn’t not make me nervous. At the very least, I’d like to ensure that completely-useless-Pat-McCoy isn’t allowed to play right tackle while 5 is on the field. Can we hook that up?

In the meantime, I’m more than happy to return Dunavin to his bubble-tape cocoon until September 9th. Despite what some might suggest, um, there is nothing to prove in an imaginary game.
