August 12 Philadelphia Daily News

“Many people think the Eagles will rue the day they put Donovan McNabb in an Easter basket and shipped him down I-95 to the Redskins. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones isn’t one of those people.

He thinks the Eagles will be just fine without McNabb. More than fine. He thinks that with Kevin Kolb at quarterback, they won’t be quite the Jekyll-and-Hyde bunch they were with the streaky McNabb behind center. At least against his team.

When McNabb played well against the Cowboys, the Eagles usually won. When he didn’t, they usually lost. The problem was, the six-time Pro Bowler’s good performances against the Cowboys had become more and more infrequent.

In McNabb’s last 10 starts against the Cowboys dating back to 2005, the Eagles were 3-7. In the Eagles’ three wins, McNabb had a passer rating of 98.4. Threw five touchdown passes and no interceptions.

In their seven losses, his passer rating was 70.2. In just one of those seven games was it higher than 69.0. Just four TD passes and six interceptions in those seven defeats.”
