McNabb & Dawkins On Hall of Fame Ballots – Podcast

84105815DH0727_eagle_vikingEagles greats Donovan McNabb and Brian Dawkins were nominated to the Hall of Fame, so they are on the ballot for the next induction ceremony.

McNabb who led the Eagles to five NFC Championship games and one Super Bowl, had a very successful run here in Philadelphia, but he’s also blamed for not beating the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl.  There are many Eagles fans, who see him as a great player, who is very close to being a Hall of Famer, but not quite there.  There are others who believe he is a Hall of Famer because of the way he led the Eagles to so many victories.

Although McNabb is criticized by local fans and sports talk show hosts, none of the balls he threw into the ground were ever intercepted.  Just like a baseball pitcher, a quarterback is much better missing low than missing high.  McNabb did a great job of avoiding turnovers during his career,   Statistically, McNabb has 4th best all-time ratio of touchdowns to interceptions.  He trails only Aaron Rodgers, Neil O’Donnell and Tom Brady in that statistic.

In his career, McNabb completed 59% of his pass attempts for 234 touchdowns with 117 interceptions.   He was able to be productive, but keep the turnovers to a minimum.

Dawkins, who is a fan favorite in Philadelphia, was a safety who could do it all.  He could come up and make big hits on ball carriers, but he was just as adept at defending receivers on pass plays.  The Clemson standout, who was drafted in the second round in 1996, also had the ability to cover wide receivers man-to-man if that’s what was needed. Dawkins was an eight-time Pro Bowler.  He is tied with Eric Allen for the most interceptions (34) in Eagles history.   During his career, Dawkins had 37 interceptions, 16 fumble recoveries, 36 forced fumbles and 31 sacks.  Weapon X is a member of the NFL All-Decade Team for the 2000’s.  He has also played in more games for the Eagles (183) than any other Eagles players.

Eagles fans would put Dawkins in the Hall of Fame immediately, but we’ll have to wait as see if the football fans nationally and the sports media people nationally decide to put him in.

It will probably be difficult for either of them to get into the Hall of Fame on their first time, but it’s not impossible.  We’ll just have to wait and see what happens.  There are sure to be a lot of arguments about who should get into the Hall of Fame.

Both Great Eagles Players and are worthy of getting their Jersey #’s Retired and Inducted into the Eagles Hall of Fame, Ring of Honor, Wall of Fame, etc…But In Terms of being Inducted into the NFL HOF wearing the Gold Blazer and among the Top 2% of all NFL Football Players and my answer is no….Both were Very Good NFL Players but not among the Best of the Best …

In the NFC Championship game Panthers QB threw a bad pass which should have been intercepted by Dawkins, the EAGLES win the game. Not only did Dawkins not intercept it, knock it down, Panthers WR caught it for a TD. Mcnabb missed alot of games and was below ave at the end of his career especially with the skins.

I think Dawkins ultimately has the better chance even tho safety is not a high value position. He kind of changed the way that position is played. 5 is a QB and he is without a SB…. That’s a negative whether it’s fair or not.

The way McNabb finished his NFL Career which was a crash and burn Performance with both the Redskins & Vikings and maybe more importantly, McNabb’s 2 Arrests and some Strange Comments Post-Career will knock him out of serious contention.. In the end, McNabb was just not very likeable where Dawkins inspires people and attracted others to his vibe, energy & his commitment to Win…. McNabb had very little of this!!

Everyone in the universe knows Cleveland is going to blow their lead..

Cam Newton and the boys still rocking the 15 yrd celebration penalties for their stupid dances.

What a front running puss. Dance it up playing a shitty west-coast team, travelling to the east coast for a 1:00 game after playing a Monday nighter.

LOL.

Should be embarrassed they’re not winning by more and struggles all first half.

Kelly’s 49ers with 3 and out for 1:22, 3 and out for 0:22, 3 and out for 1:31, 3 and out for 0:48. LOL That’s weird!

Fuckin’ Patriots. Brissett comes in and its no biggie…4 of 6 on his first drive for a TD.

NFL refereeing is pathetic…I saw an Ebron TD taken away with a tiny brush of “illegal contact”. I saw a gorgeous Hopkins TD taken away because replay was “unsure” (I was sure), I saw Benjamin awarded a TD though he caught the ball and was touched at the 1/2 yard line.

How hard is this? How come everyone knows what a “try” is in Rugby without any replay??

I can;t believe Andy Reid still has all 3 timeouts in a close game mid-way through the 4th.

Agreed. She’s no Eagle fan.

She’s a player fan. And her favourite is Cam “I am a front-running showboat who points to myself when we’re playing shitty teams, but cry and point at everyone else when we play difficult teams” Newton.

Playing a shitty west-coast team, on a short week after a MNF game and playing at 1:00 on the east coast??? That’s a freebie.

And still they were struggling till they scored 9 points in the final 3 mins after the 49ers had given up.

And yet her hero was standing at centre field arms outstretched and nodding.

LOL.

He’ll be sucking his thumb with a towel on his head next time they face another good team on the road.

Cannot win with “look at me” clowns like that. She still hasn’t accepted this fact yet.

I think Colt fan just might be getting a little nervous about Andrew Luck.

In a 3 pt game on the road. Can’t do that.

Terrible.

Shit throw.

But you “missed” that.

You are too funny. Agenda laden pretender fan.

I rip Newton and its a five alarm fire in the TS household. Rip Luck and and its crickets.

BTW – what the fuck have the Panthers won in the past few years??

Nothing. (much to your apparent chagrin)

And they aren’t going to as long as they’re led by a “look at me” always pining for the camera because he has the most fragile sports psyche I’ve ever seen loser.

But hey…keep coming on to an Eagles site and rip the Eagle fan who makes fun of all the potential Eagle opponents.

You didn’t rip Luck though.

You wrote one mildly admonishing post on dude.

You wrote a treatise on the Panthers which I ONLY commented on once you were all “oh they suck” as they put up 46 points and 500+ yards on a team.

I just thought your whole they’ll NEVER win anything of the defending NFC champs was amusing. Indy might not win their own division so…shrug…

It’s like dude you *hate* watching of one of the best teams in the NFL. Saying something mildly negative about Luck…meh…but that’s typical you though.

I mean at least you didn’t go in on Arizona today. Though we both can agree that Palmer is going to fold like a cheap suit when he hits the playoffs.

Sam Bradford looking pretty damn impressive. Only been there two weeks?

Teddy didn’t lose his job.

Bortles looked like a superstar against that D last week. Better than Bradford. And see how he looked this week.

The Pack are a weak, weak team who manage to stay in games b/c of Rogers who isn’t quite the player he used to be (yeah I said it) – Bradford WILL Bradford. BUT the Minnie D is GOOD so they might do okay with Ol’ Sam.

They went to the playoffs last year with Teddy and lost ’cause of their kicker. Unless he comes back and just can’t really play anymore = one game against the weak Packers isn’t determining much.

Yes.

And did you read the part where I said they will get to the palyoffs on the strength of Rogers just like they did last year?

I’ve seen Teddy play plenty. He’s no worse than Bradford and at least has an upside ’cause he’s young. Also Zimmer only wants his QBs to essentially be game managers. Get the ball in the hands of the play-makers and don’t turn the ball over. Let the defense do the rest. Teddy does that. And runs when needed.

My overall opinion of him is “meh” until he’s asked to do more.

Bortles looked like a superstar too…

couldve had to do with bridgewater not being able to sustain drives to give the kicker more opportunities or him not being able to put up 1 td. or not doing anything but check down that game, depends on how u look at it. kids thrown 14 tds in back to back years, that dont get it done in the nfl regardless of system.

i find it hilarious you back bums that dont play for philly but say wentz sucks and never watched him play ever. and after he blows up week 1 you say nada.

That may have been Aaron Rodgers Worst Game in a long Time ..
some Bad Fumbles where he wasn’t ever aware of would be taacklers approaching and a terrible Pass on that Interception towards the end of the game where he was 2-3 Yards Short on that Pass to the outside where the Vikings CB Waynes just had to turn around to catch it… He also missed on a 3rd and Goal Pass on a fade route to the Corner of the End-Zone where he tossed it too strong with not enough air under it to give Jody Nelson a chance against the Rookie Mackensie Alexander… Usually Rogers is much more accurate and both these times in critical situations, Rogers had time and was not rushed to have to pass.. He just simply missed the throws which used to be rare

Give 4 Weeks/Games in the NFL before the Good Teams start rising to the Top and the mediocre to bad Teams get exposed to who they are…

Everyone was talking up the Jaguars who laid an egg,
The TB Bucs who also laid an egg and didn’t show up to play..
Look at Oakland Raiders & Detroit and Home Favorites lost

Big Game for Eagles tonight and it will be interesting to watch how Wentz handles the Bright Lights, a blitzing, aggressive Defense & DC in Vic Fangio
I expect a pretty High Scoring,Close Game that will come down to late in the 4th Quarter… Special Teams and Kicking will be huge … Soldier Field is one of the worst Field’s to play on in terms of Footing and Kicking so expect a Big Play, Big Return, Poor Kicks/Punts . The Forecast is Sunny and Warm today there so there’s little to no Precipitation is in the Forecast

I wanted Bradley over Chip. Probably McCoy was my second choice.

When Chip got hired I initailly bought in. Seemed interesting (though I had lingering doubts and never agreed with ‘tempo all the time’) But Chip was easy to sour on real fast.

I am still intruiged by Bradley. I mean he took over a team with absolutely nothing. I really thought he was going to turn the corner with that bunch this year…..but they went off the rails a bit.

First they got stupid in FA. Seemed like they were spending like they were “already there” when there’s clearly work to do.

This season they threw the kitchen sink at GB in week one and fought them down to the wire. But couldn’t pull it off. I wasn’t suprised that they came out completely flat this week off that loss.

He did call it correctly–
If you look at that video I referred to last week on crossing broad- it is the most amazing thing to see a coach/team so stubborn as to not change a formation, to not audible and to run the same group of plays out of certain formations– teams typically scout tendancies– chip doesn’t have tendencies he has hard rules for his offense– the defense coordinator takes about 3 hours, watches some film and says…”in this formation we run this stunt’, ‘in that formation they run these routes’ etc..

That’s a joke.

Carolina was cruising to a super simple easy win against a terrible west coast team playing on a short week in the early game on the East coast.

For all Rivera’s whining and complaining about the schedule being “unfair” he was handed a an easy free win.

And that’s what it would have been had not his players started their stupid dancing leading to the 49ers actually waking up angry for a bit and scoring 17 straight, prolonging the game.

Good for Newton’s ‘camera time’ though…instead of just ending the game respectively and easily after it got to 31-10….he got to keep himself in the spotlight.

Especially good for him, him to audible and toss a meaningless late TD to Funchess which then prompted him to stand in the centre of the field, arms outstretched like Andy Dufresne, basking in his needed adoration. “See how great I am tossing meaningless TDs against defeated opponents – see how great I am!!!!”

Another experience in the books. MNF bright lights not too much. Wentz has more work to do but coming along fine. Jordan Matthews gotta catch that TD pass though.
