Default D Mac

Donovan McNabb did a hell of a lot for the Eagles. Donovan McNabb was a great pleasure to watch (worm burners aside). But Donovan McNabb stepped on his d*** in a few games and Donovan McNabb never won a Lombardi so maybe Donovan McNabb should steer clear of opening his mouth about Carson Wentz.
No one disputes that Wentz has had some injuries but seems to me after tearing his ACL he stood in there and finished the series. Seems to me that he has played at a high level almost every time he stepped onto the field. He, nor the team, needs anyone to throw any more pressure his way. McNabb of all people should know that

Since his retirement, Dmac has been busted for DUI and sexual harassment.

Default You are right ND

I took down my other post after reading this. I don't know if McNabb is jealous or just plain dumb because his statements are full of contradictions. At least to me they are. Here is the New Jersey News article that I think that you are talking about concerning his comments on a radio show.



Donovan McNabb had some strong opinions on Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz.

On a CBS Sports Radio show with Zach Gelb Saturday morning, McNabb said Wentz needs to deliver, and quickly, to keep his job as Eagles quarterback.


“I think in the next two years or so, he needs to find a way to get out of the second round of the playoffs,” McNabb said. "What Nick Foles was able to do, take them to a Super Bowl and then possibly take them back to the NFC Championship proves that, hey, some people can get into that offense and be very successful. [Wentz] hasn’t been healthy. He hasn’t really proven to me, besides the year before he got hurt, in his first year, of really the MVP candidate. He needs to get back to that mode.

“I think, personally, if he can’t get out of the second round in the next two, maybe three, years, but really two years, to be honest with you. If he can’t get out of the second round, they should look to possibly draft another quarterback because you just don’t know about his durability. Staying healthy is very key in this league. The team only goes as far as their quarterback takes them. And they put so many eggs in the basket with Carson Wentz and he has to prove that in the next two years.”

Lane Johnson defends Carson Wentz by calling Donovan McNabb a snake

Surprisingly, Sunday eveningís most savage moment did not occur on Game of Thrones. Rather, it happened when Philadelphia Eagles right tackle Lane Johnson called out Donovan McNabb on Twitter. Take a look:

Damn. Thatís pretty intense.

Johnson is clearly responding to McNabbís comments from Saturday about how the Eagles need to consider moving on from Carson Wentz if he fails to take Philadelphia to the NFC Championship Game within the next two seasons.

Johnson, who quite literally protects Wentz on the football field, was also quick to defend his quarterback shortly after the PhillyVoice report emerged earlier this offseason.

Lane admittedly isnít one to mince words. Here, heís taking a pretty big shot at one of the more accomplished players in franchise history. McNabb obviously holds a lot of team records and his jersey number was even officially retired.

But McNabbís legacy didnít do anything to prevent Johnson from calling him a snake (six emojis!) and saying that nobody respects him.

Just your normal, quiet Sunday evening.

Yep that is cold but most of the time you earn your reputation. As I said DMac gave me some great football moments but my opinions of him have dropped since he went to Washington.

Poor Donovan, struggling to remain relevant for some reason. Enjoy your retirement and stop being a dickhead.

McNabb played some great football for the Birds. It's fair to say he carried the offense at times in spite of some unimpressive receivers. But going back, even to his days at the 'Cuse, he has a history of feeling slighted without cause and talking too much, especially when he feels unappreciated.

Exceptional physical skills but kind of a baby man and certainly no a threat to join Mensa.

OMG Vet you just took the thought right out of my head! I've often (and maybe unfairly) questioned the motives of a lot of these guys who become ministers when they retire. It really makes me wonder if they just need the constant attention that they are used to. I immediately go to Randall Cunningham in my mind. It turned out that Irving Fryer was just a crook LOL. I would sure would hate to be wrong about the majority of them, especially at this time of the year.

DMac’s got a bad habit of saying dumb things in interviews. The Eagles have seen what Wentz is capable of, and they just aren’t going to quit on him if he keeps doing what he’s doing. NFCCG or bust? I don’t see that. Good quarterbacks don’t grow on trees, and they’ve got a keeper in Wentz.

Wentz’s ability isn’t the question. It’s his knee and his back, and I’m keeping my fingers crossed on that.

Know what bugs me the most about all this? Knowing that Freddie f’ing Mitchell and Terrell f’ing Owens are going to get air time after this.
