Eagles Fans Should Give Thanks for a Decade of Donovan McNabb

Filed under: AZ Cardinals, Eagles, NFC East, NFC WestDonovan McNabb’s play over the last few weeks was so bad that it allowed Andy Reid, a traditionally ardent supporter of his star player, to bench him in place of the young Kevin Kolb. The youngster’s performance somehow actually managed to be worse than McNabb’s and the Eagles limped to a pathetic defeat at the hands of the Ravens. Life has been rough for the Eagles coming into this Thanksgiving day.

And so it is for Eagles fans, that they find a team who was at the top of most experts’ power rankings coming into the season, on the brink of a new football era in Philadelphia. Many believe the final six games of this season will be the last we see of Andy on the sideline and Donovan behind center in an Eagles uniform. As a huge McNabb fan in the past, I find it both sad but a necessary reality. Andy Reid has lost this team coupled with Donovan’s gigantic cap number next season make a fresh start, and likely rebuilding period, that much easier to swallow. (a Phillies World Championship doesn’t hurt either)

The strength of the Arizona Cardinals is in their impressive receiving corp so the absence of Eagles star corner in today’s game could prove costly. This game is more about pride for the Eagles than reaching any playoff dream. The Eagles are coming home on Thanksgiving to play in front of a loyal fan base that has been embarrassed the past few weeks.

There’s been a lot of speculation in Philly about the kind of reaction McNabb will receive on this chilly Thanksgiving evening following his mid-game benching last week. In my opinion, the McNabb era is coming to a close in Philadelphia, we all realize this, but instead of booing the man who has given us a decade of wonderful football memories in Philadelphia, I believe the faithful at Lincoln Financial Field should cheer and support the man and give thanks for a career in which he brought us “to the appetizer but didn’t get [us] to the entree.”

It was a pretty enjoyable appetizer.
