McNabb is more prepared this time around

No player has more pressure on him this week than Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb. His failures in the NFC championship game have been well-documented, as have the changes the Eagles have made to their roster over the last year.

That being said, I think the biggest reason the Eagles will finally break through against Atlanta this weekend is that their quarterback is a totally different player from past years.

I know Terrell Owens is out for this week and the other Philly wide receivers, although they played well against Minnesota, can't carry his car keys. Despite this, one thing hasn't changed – the onus is still on McNabb to carry his team to Jacksonville and I think he will do just that.
