I did an interview with Cody Bejamin of the blog Bleed-Green. Check out a snippet and follow the jump for more of the interview along with your first-dtop-shop for all things Eagles.
Question: How do you think the Eagles-Redskins game this coming Monday will be different than the first time the rivals met this year?
Answer: I think it will be overshadowed with the fact that McNabb and Shanahan are on shaky terms in the media. All eyes will be on these two, and the media is totally overlooking the importance a win could be for this team–or how possibily destructive a loss would be for the season.
Q: Give us your honest prediction for this week’s showdown.
A: I will stand by my prediction from Week 4. I feel the Eagles are better and should play better. 34-17.
Q: It was big news when Donovan McNabb got benched at the end of the Redskins’ game about two weeks ago; what’s you entire take on the situation been?
A: It was big news but it didn’t have to be. McNabb threw a bad pick and Shanahan got upset; he just couldn’t admit that in front of cameras. I think this is the type of thing that fuels a large market’s media base and it has been fodder gold for reporters and journalists everywhere.
Q: In addition, do you see Donovan McNabb as a long-term option for Washington at quarterback or are you starting to wonder whether or not the Redskins’ trade to get him was a mistake?
A: Not a long-term option, but a two-three year viable option. The Eagles got Nate Allen, who has been great for them this year. As far as him being a mistake? No.
Q: Speaking of quarterbacks, a rumor has been floating that Mike Shanahan would approve of having Michael Vick come to the Redskins as a free agent after this year; do you see this as a realistic possibility and would you support such a move?
A: Anything is possible with the Redskins and any big-name star. Vick has said that he wants to stay in Philly. I believe that means he will listen to the highest bidder. He is enjoying success now, but once he hits a bump in the road, perhaps a game at home, we will see how well the home fans respond to him. He has been lights out this year for the Eagles with a QB rating over 100. But maintaining that level of play for an entire year is rare. If he maintains these numbers, he will be well sought next offseason.
