McNabb's Take: Dallas game will be a 'nightmare'

During the Eagles' seven-game freefall, the 2012 season has been compared to a nightmare.

On Sunday night in Dallas, Dononvan McNabb believes that bad dream will only get worse.

"I think this will be a nightmare game," the former Eagle said on Thursday's edition of "Daily News Live."

And unfortunately for Nick Foles, this is not the ideal time to audition for the future. Why? Well, for many reasons.

"And now, when you're makeshifting different guys, there's no chemistry, there's no continuity, there's an identity problem with this team," McNabb said, "and I think it's only going to get worse before it gets better."

In two starts and three total games, Foles has a 59.6 completion percentage and a 65.3 quarterback rating. But with a patchwork offensive line, no LeSean McCoy and now no DeSean Jackson, Foles' chances at impressing have been diminished.

"You're playing against [Jay] Ratliff, you're playing against DeMarcus Ware, you're playing playing against [Anthony] Spencer," McNabb said. "You're playing against guys who are probably chomping at the bit at this particular point watching this offensive line.

"It's really bad for Nick Foles because this being his first year, and his first couple games getting under his belt, he's not really able to gain that confidence that he needs."

I like that they leave out all context ensuring that the statement is misunderstood. This statement was made with the idea of Mathis playing Center btw.

I like how they constantly harp on how he has had no TD's . Did the one he had against these same Cowboys get nullified or something? I don't recall it being wiped out due to penalty .

The only thing true about this write up is that it isn't a fair test of what Nick can be as a future starting QBwith the mess this team has become.

The only thing that would make this game worse, would be for the starting qb to do some "false bravado" move...like maybe a goofy banjo/guitar move followed by slapping the glass in the fan tunnel.

TFG they traded that bum after that. i was never more embarrassed to be an eagles fan and never more sure that they were going to lose a game before it was played.
