Baldinger slams McNabb

It's not unusual to hear an analyst criticize Donovan McNabb.

While many in the national media seem to think that Eagles fans have been too hard on him, most will concede that he has his faults (inaccuracy, never won a Super Bowl, etc.).

But NFL Network's Brian Baldinger recently took aim at McNabb in a way I don't remember seeing during his 11-year career.

Multiple analysts weighed in on the McNabb situation on after McNabb was traded to the Redskins. But none had stronger words than Baldinger:

The Eagles should be ecstatic. I view McNabb as a flawed player, and it was never more apparent than in the back-to-back losses to the Cowboys last season. His flaws will never go away. Now, the Eagles get at least two chances to expose the same flaws they've been covering up for 11 years. It works against the Redskins that McNabb is still in the division. Andy Reid can finally stop covering up for one of the most overrated quarterbacks in the history of the game. The Eagles will go to the playoffs. The Redskins will be watching from the golf course.


It's unclear from the article whether his words were part of a TV discussion or whether the site simply was rounding up the opinions of several of its personalities.

Baldinger serves as an analyst for NFL Network and Fox. He played with the Eagles from 1992-93.

Thoughts? Has Reid been covering up for McNabb over the last decade?
