    Nobody knows what will happen with McNabb yet. We all know he hasn't been treated well by their fans and who knows if he wants to stay or not.
    They do have 2 first round draft picks this year. If they did trade him they could have 3 first rounders so that could pull the trigger if they wanted.
    Just throwing this out there. I have no inside info.

    No, McNabb stepped his game up when the coaches lit a fire under his ass. I think a good spot for Cassel would be Tampa Bay or Minnesota.

    Ye, I think the Eagles would be wise to go and get him....any team that is in need of a young, experienced, smart QB with plenty of upside potential should deal for him.

    Mcnabb is the past there, not the future.....would not surprise me at all if they do make a run for him, Eagles are pretty smart organization.

    I realize Kevin Kolb was drafted last year in 2nd round (as pointed out by Patsox below), but still feel that McNAbb at 32 going on 33 and a lot of mileage on that body, Cassel could be a better answer.

    Philly drafted a QB in the 2nd round last year. And anyway, McNabb is likely staying there.

    I really doubt it. I think McNabb is still their guy.

    The "past" was pretty close to being in THIS year's SB. To come that close suggests that they might not need to rebuild. While I'm not a huge fan of McNabb - they could do a lot worse.

    I'm with the dude who suggests Minny or even TB. What I do know for sure : he ain't goin' to Detroit ! That place is home to my man : Dante... quite possibly the grestest QB of our, or any, time ! I love you Dante.

    Had they not made the playoffs, at 9-7 with a miracle getting in......I could see them pulling the trigger. But 2 playoff wins, especially against the Giants, bought him a return. However, he is making noises about wanting an extension
    Now comes decision time for Eagles
    If they decide that they don't want to tie up that much money in an over 30 QB, and the Eagles are notorious for jettisoning over age 30 players...they could make a move. Kevin Kolb didn't get it done this year when given the chance in a limited opportunity but who knows what they'll do.

    The Igglez would be an intriguing choice, but there's another reason I'm not quite sold--they're also notoriously cheap. They, for one, will not mourn the loss of the salary floor.

    I hope this is a joke about Dante. He was ok; but certainly not anything special imo.

    Yes, yes it has been an all-day joke about Detroit. Perhaps I didn'T over-do the sarcasm enough. I'll try harder.

    I love you Dante. I want to kiss you. I want to kiss you all over without missing a cubic centimetre.

    Detroit is a joke - I doubt they have the forsight to draft a good OL with #1 and get a solid QB at #20.

    McNabb just led his team to the NFC Championship and ownership said that he is safe. Plus, the Eagles invested a good draft pick into Kevin Kolb that they may not be ready to give up on yet when McNabb finally packs it in. Minnesota, Detroit, Kansas City, and Tampa Bay are the most likely landing places for Cassel.

    It's the offseason. Who cares? It's not like there is a plethora of topics to discuss.

    Good call - it's the only topic... until they get it resolved. Then, on to the draft. Truth is : people want Casseltalk.

    Dude was hyper-distracted by complications with his wife's pregnancy with twins. Not a great excuse for sloppy work, but its certainly understandable. It's mathematically clear that he played better after they were born safely.

    Was completely unaware. Totally agreed - distractions come from everyday life in all work places. Truth remains that even if he's no Dante, he is still in top quarter in NFL.

    Doubt it but you never know with Philly. They gave Asante $9M/year when CB didn't seem to be much of a need. They could cut Mcnabb any day even after the run.

    i grew up in philly and love the iggles next to my pats...(my family disowned me when i pulled for the pats in sb xxxix)

    IMO, it's time for the eagles to move beyond the mcnabb and reid era.

    before you jump on me about how great a coach reid is (and he is great), look at one fact: under his leadership, the eagles have been to six championship games (five nfccg's and one sb) and have lost five. at some point, you have to say...this isn't getting it done and nobody is getting any younger.

    mcnabb is a great qb. if he had played for belichick, i'd be willing to bet that he'd have lived up to his full potential. but, it's over for him, as cold hearted as that sounds.

    i think matt would be a great fit and that the philly fans would welcome him, after the usual pissing and moaning at the beginning.

    I've had just about enough of all this Detroit bashing !

    On the serious side : who cares where he goes ? As long as comp is good, I could care less about matt Cassel. I'm a Patriots fan, not a player fan. Players fandom is for fantasy fb.
