McNabb To Wear Eagles Uniform Againby BigGreek24
Once Garrett Hartley’s kick sailed through the uprights on Sunday, sending the Saints to their first ever Super Bowl, Donovan McNabb’s career as an Eagle got extended for at least one more game.
Since the Pro Bowl is being played before the Super Bowl – historically it has always been played after the NFL’s biggest game – players participating in the Super Bowl, namely Saints QB Drew Brees, won’t be suiting up this weekend. McNabb was named to replace Brees on Monday. So McNabb gets to join DeSean Jackson and Leonard Weaver on the NFC’s Offense for at least one more game. Whether Sunday is the last time we’ll see McNabb with an Ealges helmet on again remains to be seen. We certainly haven’t been for a loss of opinions on the subject, that’s for sure.
As bad as McNabb played against the Cowboys, was it really that much better for Vikings fans to watch their team self destruct in just two plays, getting called for a twelve man in the huddle penalty before Favre’s fateful interception that allowed the NFC Championship Game to go to overtime while Ryan Longwell prepared for what could’ve been the game winning kick? Eagles fans certainly know alot about NFC Championship Game failure, but you have to admit Favre’s last two trips to the game have been just awful, throwing late interceptions that led to his team being eliminated. Go back to the 2003 divisional playoffs against the Eagles at Lambeau Field and its his last three playoff games. I really don’t know what’s worse – getting there and watching your Quarterback play stupid, or watching your Quarterback pretty much not show up and lose in the first round.
Here’s what I do know: McNabb is playing in the Pro Bowl this weekend and it could be the last time he represents the Eagles until the day they sign him to a one day contract so he can retire as a Philadelphia Eagle.
