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."
