What Would Buddy Do?
Searching my desk for a panic button

Right right, it’s June 9, and we hate to overreact, but still — this is straight from Spuds hisownself:

The Eagles, coincidentally enough, spent a portion of Monday’s practice working against the Giants offensive and defensive schemes, and it was Kevin Kolb, not McNabb, who took many of the reps at quarterback.

That led to speculation that McNabb’s arm is hurting. McNabb was asked after practice if he is concerned about his arm.

“No,” he said. “I know it will get better.”

Exactly what “it” is was not made clear. McNabb didn’t want to answer questions on the subject, but he did answer when asked if he expected more or fewer practice reps for the remainder of this camp, which lasts through Thursday.

“We’ll see. We’ll see,” said McNabb. “We’re just taking it slow.”

Um, what exactly are we taking slow again?  Are we broken already, in a heretofore unbroken realm of our frequently broken body?  Also, how long is Soviet Central Media going to pretend that everything is totally cool, nothing to see here?  Not much longer, it seems, if Spuds is publishing stories like this.

This is me gritting my teeth and pretending to be more excited about the Phillies (I’m not unexcited, but it just isn’t the same).

C’mon, man. It’s June. JUNE. It’s hot as hell, it’s not like McNabb is going to learn a whole lot in minicamp, and the #2 QB has as many professional starts as you and I. So let the man rest. If his arm still hurts in three months, THEN you can get excited.

Sure, we shouldn’t get too too worried here…but it isn’t like this is GOOD news either.

Also, I just can’t get past the fact that he’s working with Kerry Wood’s trainer. Does Dunavin not read the papers? This man is a butcher!
