Philly Gets Impatient

No, I did not write this Onion article, even though it encapsulates 100% my attitude about the Eagles, McNabb, and their fan base:

Eagles Fans Give McNabb Three-Week Deadline To Win Super Bowl
PHILADELPHIA—Frustrated with the Eagles' last-second 16-13 loss to the Green Bay Packers last Sunday, and with quarterback Donovan McNabb's failure to single-handedly score three touchdowns, prevent two of his teammates from muffing punts, or block any of Green Bay's field goals, thousands of Philadelphia fans demanded that McNabb win an NFL championship for Philadelphia sometime within the next three weeks.

"For the last time: How much longer do we have to wait for McNabb to get off his ass?" Eagles fan Jacob Wilkerson said of the five-time Pro Bowler in one of over 1,500 messages addressed to the quarterback left on the Eagles' voicemail Monday. "Come on McNabb, it's time to finish the job. We've been really lenient up to this point, but it's time to hunker down and throw the ball. If you think you need to take the whole three weeks, that's fine, but we would really like it by next Wednesday."

The same paper, last year, reported that "Eagles Fans Fully Expect Donovan McNabb To Play With Torn ACL."

I think my wife's uncle was one of the fans making this demand.
