Donovan McNabb obviously looked like he was all the way back throwing for 138 yards and staking the Birds to a 10-0 lead over the Panthers in one quarter of action Friday night. But don't be too quick to put 13 or 14 next to the Eagles' win total this season. Remember it was just a ridiculous preseason game against a team that didn't think enough of the contest to bring its best player in DE Julius Peppers. And remember McNabb only played a quarter; there still are four in a football game. He seemed to fatigue near the end of his shift, which is understandable. Bottom line: The Man has a long way to go. What made his performance puffy was that he still has much more talent than any QB in the NFC East, and the NFC.
