Wonder if Donovan McNabb will get the same treatment upon his return to Philly on October 3rd
The relationship between former Philadelphia Eagles and current Washington Redskins QB Donovan McNabb all began on April 17, 1999. On that date, the Birds selected McNabb to be their quarterback of the future and 30 knuckleheads led “Boos” that will forever haunt Eagles fans and their former franchsie passer.
Now after 11 years as the Eagles starter and a April 2010 trade, Big 5 will return to the “Linc” as a member of the division rival, Washington Redskins and everyone wants to know how the Philly faithful will receive their former hero.
But to me it is a “No-Brainer” as fans should rise to their feet to salute McNabb before rooting for their hometown Eagles to beat the Redskins. No. 5’s value as a leader and his passing numbers of 2801-4746, 59.0% completion rate, 32,873 yards, 216 TDs, and 100 INTs – NFL record for touchdown-to-interception ratio — with an additional 3249 yards and 28 touchdowns rushing, should all speak for themselves.
There also is his Eagles’ starting records of 92-49-1 in the regular season and 9-7 in the playoffs.
Give this man, the respect that he deserves. And remember the Eagles and McNabb’s good times together in Philadelphia.
