Default This makes me a little concerned.

from phillyburbs.


Where's Donovan?

Coach Andy Reid said he tried to call Donovan McNabb just before the Kevin Kolb pick but wasn't able to reach him and left him a voice mail. He said Sunday he still hasn't heard from McNabb.

The guy is already sensitive, imagine how sensitive he will be now. Either this will motivate him to step up or we will be talking about Kolb sooner than later..

Well, tough shit. McNabb's been coddled every since the draft debacle. He;'s 30 years old so grow up a little Donny.

That being said, he's probably on vacation in the islands, nothing to worry about.

I don't see how anyone can claim that Donnovan is overly sensitive, he has had to put up with more crap than possibly any player in the history of any sport.

It's also not very usual for Andy to just throw out a comment like that, what was the context.

What's there to tlk about. Hey Donovan, we just drafted your eventual replacement. It's up to YOU as to when that actually happens.

Well, I think the black players who integrated all pro sports had it far, far worse than Donny ever had it.

True. But, Donnie's had to deal with a lot in the modern era - including racial intolerance ( Rush Limbaugh).

Reid deserves this. The pick makes no sense unless McNabb has 2-3 years left and that's it.

For $100M I'll deal with the same problems as McNabb, like playing pro sports for a living and getting paid better than 99.9% of the populace. Outside of Limbaughs stupidity and the draft day debacle, Don's had a nice life.

They're the Philadelphia Eagles, not the McNabbs, not the Dawkinses, not the Reids.....hell, not even the Banners, Luries or Fans.

They've shown that quarterbacks not named McMahon or Detmer.......guys named Garcia and even Feeley.....can move the ball with a good offensive game plan.....whether it was a panic move, a trade bait move, or a plan for the future, no one's above the team, not even the star quarterback, RB, WR or whatever. DMac, more than anyone, knows this. I think that DMac's parents, teammates and coaches have been protective of him.....but some fans, and a certain cancer teammate who now plays in Dallas, and the hyenas in the TV and print media have done anything but coddle him. I hope that, like Dawkins, he retires as an Eagle.
