Fan feedback

   Who should be the 
  Eagles' starting quarterback? Can the 
  Cardinals win in Eastern time zone? 
   **What are your thoughts?**

McNabb's mental status: McNabb was benched for the first time in his career in Week 12, but coach Andy Reid moved quickly on Monday to select him as the starter. Will this move inspire the veteran quarterback, or make him spiral further?

Who is running for the Eagles: Starter Brian Westbrook and backup Correll Buckhalter missed practice on Monday. Westbrook has struggled in recent weeks, and if he or Buckhalter can't go, Lorenzo Booker would get the start for the Eagles.
