Eagles vs Carolina: Donovan McNabb Breaks Rib | Player Rankings

Philadelphia Eagles v Carolina Panthers

The Panthers and Eagles faced off in week one, and this figured to be a close game. In the end, the Eagles blew out their opponent as Donovan McNabb broke a rib.

Jake Delhomme has Four Interceptions

In watching the highlights of this game it was clear that the Eagles had strong pressure on Jake Delhomme. While Delhomme had a horrible game, I do believe he will come back and play respectable football.

This veteran quarterback is a fighter, and just when you think he’s down for the count he bounces back. Look for Delhomme to have a much better game next week against the Falcons.

For fantasy owners with Steve Smith and DeAngelo Williams, go ahead and keep starting your studs. I would not be worried about this, unless this bad play continues into October.

Donovan McNabb Breaks Rib

Today we found out that McNabb broke a rib on his three yard touchdown run. This injury has left McNabb’s status up in the air for week two.

The Eagles also took action today by signing veteran quarterback Jeff Garcia. Garcia who once played for the Eagles had just recently asked for his release from the Raiders.

If McNabb can’t go this weekend against the Saints than Garcia should get the nod.

Just like the Panthers situation, I wouldn’t pull any of your fantasy football starters from this team. Garcia is very capable of running this offense as he did in 2006.

Eagles Defense a Surprise

I was very surprised by the play of the Eagles defense this week. For a team that has lost key players and coordinator Jim Johnson, they didn’t skip a beat.

Let’s see how they perform against Drew Brees this Sunday.
