Donovan McNabb to retire as an Philadelphia Eagle on Monday. He holds just about every passing record in Philly, he was a great player for the Eagles and he should retire as an Eagle. McNabb wasn’t always a hero when he played for the Eagles.
He had a rough couple of seasons before he was able to turn things around and lead the team to the play-offs. He spent 11 season with the Eagles and was an out-standing player. He passed for over 32 thousand yards, he had 91 victories and threw 216 touchdown passes.
Those aren’t numbers to laugh at. McNabb was a great player for the Eagles and the fans loved him once he got things going. McNabb once played the super bowl with a broken ankle. He couldn’t get the win and fans were disappointed but playing an entire game at the quarterback position with a broken ankle isn’t an easy thing to do.
McNabb is scheduled to retire from the NFL with the Eagles Monday at 10:00a.m. The team and McNabb will hold a press conference before the best quarterback the Eagles ever had hangs up his cleats and heads to the broadcast booth.
It is a fitting send off for him. It shows the Eagles and McNabb are a class act.
