Eagles cruising in a blowout at the Linc

PHILADELPHIA -- So do we think the Giants are really this bad? They don't even belong on the field with Eagles right now. Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb and receiver DeSean Jackson have been brilliant in helping stake Philly to a 33-7 lead early in the third quarter.
This is an absolute mismatch. Giants quarterback Eli Manning has been stunningly bad. Let's take a look at some numbers from the first half:
Manning is 8-of-16 for 105 yards and two interceptions. He has a woeful 52.3 passer rating -- if you're into that sort of thing. McNabb was 11-of-15 for 201 yards and three touchdowns in the first half. He's doing pretty much anything he wants to against the Giants' secondary.
And the Giants just opened the second half with a Domenik Hixon fumble -- and the Eagles capitalized with a short field goal from David Akers. It's 33-7, Eagles on top.
