No doubt. Hey Donovan, ever wonder why QBs like yourself get paid a LOT more than everybody else on the team? This is part of the reason. Don't want the criticism? PLAY BETTER.

Exactly. In the NFL it's never a matter of race. If you are getting booed and bugged about how you are doing, it's your fault.

I by no means am a brady fan. I think he's a big homo in all. But I would argue up and down that mcnabb has been surounded by more talent then tom brady ever was.

Hmmm... I am pretty much on the same page as a lot of folks here. I live in Allentown, PA about an hour north of Phili. In fact, Bethlehem, the city next to A-town is where Lehigh college is (Eagles' training camp). This is Eagles' country out here...Even the fans out here think this is a joke for him to be saying this...

For me, he's right...Manning and Brady don't get criticized as much...of course, that's probably because they're better.

exactly. If Mcscrub wants to be in the same tier as Manning and brady I think he needs to get a lombardi trophy or two in his trophy case

Donovan McNabb has never been surrounded by the offensive talent that Brady or Manning has. Anyone who believes otherwise is delusional. Although I think McNabb can be a little sensitive he isnt too far off with his comments.

Sorry, I think he is way off with his comments in regards to race. All QBs are subject to criticism, it comes with the territory - if their teams lose, they generally get too much of the blame across the board, and when they win, they get too much credit across the board. In the NFL, if a guy has what it takes to play the position and excel, he plays that position - regardless of whether he's white, black, yellow, red or purple. I guess McNair being named co-NFL MVP back in '03 along with Manning was racism? Like revefsreleets said in an earlier post, this would have been a legitimate argument 20 years ago. It doesn't fly now.

Ok.

How about naming some of this stellar talent that Brady has had at his disposal?

Westbrook remains one of the elite two way threats in the backfield.

Let me throw some names at you regarding Brady's 'surrounding talent' - Jabar Gaffney, Reche Caldwell, Antowain Smith, David Givens, David Patten, Troy Brown, Deion Branch, Donald Hayes.....

Not many HOFers there, right?

Some decent players -sure, but those that have left have totally failed to repeat their output elsewhere.

I think McNabb is an okay guy from what I can tell, but the enduring image I have of him from the SB was of him puking into his helmet and walking slowly to the line while the clock ticked to zero on Phily's chance of tying the game.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

great point litp. one would think the patriots would need mega doses of juice, and defensive plays constantly called into brady's headset to overcome that group of vagabonds.

....but since that isnt the case, brady is truly a great qb.

anyways, i watched the JB interview with mccnabb. no biggie. didnt someone make the point of condoleeza rice's new book "twice as good" (or whatever)?
