Donovan McNabb To Retire As An EagleBREAKING NEWS, Eagles, News, Quarterbacks Tuesday, May 14th, 2013
“I will retire as an Eagle and I look forward to that opportunity and that day,” McNabb told ESPN Radio 97.7 FM in Syracuse.
It’s a good fit because Reid and McNabb had a lot of success together during their time with the Eagles. Yes they were unable to win a Super Bowl title during that period, but they went to five NFC Championship games and one Super Bowl, which isn’t an easy accomplishment.
McNabb is arguably the greatest Eagles quarterback, even though he never led the Eagles to a title because he was the quarterback, who took them to those five NFC Championship games. He has led this organization to more wins than any other quarterback. He holds most of the passing records. He has the most passing yards 32,873 in the history of the Eagles. McNabb also has the most touchdown passes, 216, in team history, as well as the most completions 2,801 and the most attempts 4,746.
There are some critics and Eagles fans who want to classify McNabb as a choker, who can’t perform under pressure, but y0u have to win a lot of big games in order to get to all of those Conference championship games. It’s going to be very interesting to see how Eagles fans react to McNabb when he is introduced and after he speaks. I expect the fans to greet him with applause.
“I have nothing but love for the Philly fans, even the ones who were highly criticizing me or opinionated in any way,” he told ESPN 97.7 FM. “I can’t get upset at them because my job is to get out on the field and be productive. That’s what quarterbacking is all about.”
We’ll see how long he’s able to keep that commitment.
