Pathetic: The Eagles TIE the 1-win Bengals

One word describes the effort the Eagles put forth today in their tie with the lowly Cincinnati Bengals: pathetic.

Here is my list of everything pathetic from this game:

Donovan McNabb: 3 picks, a completion percentage below 50%, terrible over- and under-throws and a myriad of bad decisions. It's time for the Kevin Kolb era to begin.

McNabb's smile: Stop smiling when you play like crap! Don't you understand how frustrating that is for the fans?

The playcalling: It's time for Andy Reid to hand over the playcalls to someone else. Anyone else.

The running game: Wait, what running game?

Sav Rocca: The experiment has failed. It's time to get a real punter.

Discipline: Too many penalties, all seemingly at the wrong time.

Reggie Brown: 1 catch, 0 yards. Nice game, buddy. What a waste of a 2nd round pick.

The refs: Thank goodness the B.S. roughing the passer call against Sheldon Brown didn't cost the Eagles their precious tie.

The fact that the Eagles can't win a game when their defense has 8 sacks: None of the blame for this game goes to the defense. They held up their end and basically shut down the Bengals.

Got any more pathetic things to add to the list? I am sure there are more, I'm just too annoyed to bother to write about this team right now.

Isn't there a stat about how dismal the Iggles' record is when McNabb attempts over 45 passes? Seeing Westbrook go 4.3 yrds/carry and still attempt 58 passes... way to use your tools. Even Buck has had 2 good games in a row...
