Re: Enough negativity - Some bright spots...

Donovan McNabb may have had a ugly-looking stat line against the Ravens, but I think that he still played well. He extended plays and converted a lot of third and longs to extend drives. He also looked much more deliberate than JC when pressured. Besides, most of his completions were longer passes because his yards per attempt was 7.9 but his completion percentage was 42.3%. Moreover, those completions often came on third and longs, which are not converted into 1st downs very frequently, especially against a good defense like the Ravens.
Analysis using datasets (aka stats) is an attempt at reverse-engineering a player's "goodness".

Virtuosity remembered, douchebaggery forgotten.

The ideal character profile shoved down modern Western men and women's throats is Don Juan.

You're right, but he's looking like a talent now...instead of a liability that makes an occasional exciting hit.

Re: Enough negativity - Some bright spots...

We should remember that even though the Ravens have a top flight D, they are woeful at cornerbacks. (Doug Deutch ) Still I thought the line really did a decent job of giving McNabb just enough time (coupled with McNabb's poise).

I like how our pre-season schedule has played out, a big win - good for initial confidence and payoff for a hard nose off-season program, the 2nd game against a solid D- 1's on 1's played competitively, and this 3rd game against a solid D including corners, and a shaky O, we should see how well our D can impose it's will on a young qb. The Arizona game should be cancelled

Steve Smith for the Panthers (although bigger than Banks) was chosen as a special teams ace. Not that i think banks will succeed as a WR, just sayin that it happened at least once.
If "The Future is Now" why would we use our #4 Pick on a QB who will spend the 1st year on the bench?
