Donovan: Go Get Your Surgery!
My advice to Donovan McNabb: Go get your sports hernia operation done now. According to McNabb, there is a small tear in the lower abdomen which will definitely have to be repaired with surgery. When asked by Terry Bradshaw on Fox NFL Pre-game show, McNabb said if he had the surgery done now, he would be out for 4-6 weeks. Well, Donovan, you're not helping the team any right now, and if by some chance the Eagles do make it into the playoffs, don't you think you should be healthy then? It is quite obvious after yesterday's thrashing by the Dallas Cowgirls(boys), that McNabb's injury is not as easy to live with as he proclaims. Sure, the Eagles made a fantastic comeback against the Kansas City Chiefs, but that scenario is not going to play out every week to get the Eagles into the playoffs. Superbowl teams do not have comebacks each and every week. Superbowl teams do not squeak through victories. Superbowl teams are consistent week after week after week. And McNabb cannot do this as long as he has this hernia. So, my advice, for what it's worth, is that McNabb leave now and get his hernia repaired. Then, if/when the Eagles make the playoffs, McNabb will be at his best game.
