McNabb’s Arizona Home Vandalized

A source with knowledge of the situation confirmed a report on Yahoo yesterday that “Go Cards” and similar messages were burned into the front lawn of Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb’s home in Chandler, Ariz., at some point last week.

The report said that McNabb’s wife, Roxie, and his three children were staying at the house, but the source said it was not clear if they were at the home at the time of the incident.

The website’s report said that McNabb took a photo of the damaged lawn and used it as a motivating factor for the NFC title game against the Cardinals.

According to the report, one of the culprits was identified after leaving a box at the scene with his mailing label attached.

Westbrook Sore but will Start

Brian Westbrook sat out Wednesday’s practice, but he’ll certainly play against the Arizona Cardinals in Sunday’s NFC Championship Game.  Expect b-west1him to take the rest of the week off from actual practice and focus more on getting his aching muscles and sore knees ready for gametime come Sunday.   According to #36 himself:

I will start.

Boldin Feels Much Better, Will Play Sunday

Arizona receiver Anquan Boldin practiced Wednesday, and says he will play in Sunday’s NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles.logocardinals

This doesn’t bode well for the Eagle secondary as they will already have their hands full trying to contain Larry Fitzgerald.   I expect to see Asante Samuel man up on Larry Fitzgerald and Sheldon Brown to take on Quan.  Look for B Dawk and the Q’s, Mikell and Demps, to be helping out all day on this explosive wide receiving corps.

As my buddy Matt said yesterday on the email chain, ‘I’m more excited for Sunday, then any Christmas as a kid.”

Sunday can’t come soon enough.

B West Resting up for G-Men

Birds running back Brian Westbrook did not practice Wednesday and might be limited for the rest of the week.  Westbrook is nursing a badly b-west1sprained right ankle and swollen left knee, said Wednesday that he probably won’t practice much this week.  Instead he will prepare for the Eagles’ divisional-round playoff game against NFC East rival, the New York Giants with an intensive regimen of weightlifting, stretching and running in a pool.

Westbrook said he will start against the Giants on Sunday, but only after taking a round of anti-inflammatory medication on Saturday night and Sunday morning to get the pain and swelling to a tolerable level.  Look for B West to torch the G-Men as he usually does.
GO BIRDS!
