For those of who are like Doug Gottlieb and were wondering what type of reception Donovan McNabb would get in his return to Philadelphia, you’ve got your answer. The ovation for McNabb was overwhelming when his name was announced over the PA system at Lincoln Financial Field. So there you have it — Donovan McNabb was cheered in his return to Philadelphia.
Eagles fans certainly did the right thing. McNabb gave it his all while leading Philadelphia and was able to take the Eagles to a Super Bowl. It’s not like it’s a situation where he left to take more money somewhere else, either. He was traded and there’s nothing he could have done about it. While we kind of saw it coming, the fans were right to show their appreciation.
Side note: Looks like McNabb came to play. He currently has his Redskins on top 14-0 in the first quarter after throwing a touchdown pass to Chris Cooley.
