Take away Donovan McNabb and what does Philly have? Not much, as it
demonstrated in his absence last year. In seven games sans McNabb, the Eagles
never scored more than 23 points, and the fill-in QBs threw only five TD
passes. They also tossed 11 picks, fumbled nine times and were sacked 23 times.
Any D can work with that.
IS HE FOR
For the second
time in three weeks New Orleans was without one of its top receivers, and for
the second time in three weeks Devery Henderson came up big. He had only 110
receiving yards on the year before his 111-yard, two-TD day in Week 9 while
filling in for an injured Joe Horn. On Sunday, Marques Colston went down on the
opening series, and Henderson had a career-high 169 yards. Although he has been
all-or-nothing this year (he has two games with no catches), Henderson's recent
hot spell is too good to ignore.
