McNabb has very rarely been the true problem with this team. More often that not, it's been either bad breakdowns on defense or the lack of commitment to a running game and therefore not being able to run off clock that ends up hurting the Eagles.
Definitely agree there...I also think Andy Reid has a propensity to get badly out coached at times in play calling in big spots. They have a tendency to either get way too passive and timid offensively, or dumbly aggressive at other times (like the game against the Pats last year).

I think Reid is a very good Head Coach, but he should have given up play calling a while back.
