06:42 AM ET 02.24 | My knee-jerk reaction? This will not end well. That is, assuming Michael Smith's ESPN.com report is accurate, that Donovan McNabb "may hold off on further extension talks until he sees how the Eagles improve themselves in the offseason via free agency and/or trades." What extension talks? Why, the ones that Smith asserts began a week ago today, citing a "source,'' who identifies that as the day McNabb and agent Fletcher Smith held McNabb's long-awaited sitdown with Eagles coach Andy Reid and president Joe Banner. It's important to remember that, whatever Eagles Nation might think of the team's approach to its offense, Reid and Banner think they've done just fine. They are not scurrying to fill the holes that talk-show callers perceive, any more than in previous offseasons. Whatever the merits of McNabb's request, it's hard to envision the Eagles offering him much beyond a general "we're working to upgrade our team every way that we can." McNabb has been here 10 years now; he knows who he's dealing with, knows, too, how they respond to attempts to muscle them, and to things being made public that they thought were going to stay private.
