McNabb: Jackson's comments don't make him a "bigger man"

Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson doesn’t miss ex-quarterback Donovan McNabb. And now that McNabb is with the Redskins, he’d prefer that Jackson not talk about him.

Jackson told Sporting News he was “very happy with the decision” by the Eagles to trade McNabb and make Kevin Kolb the starter.

And Jackson wasn’t done there, saying that he doesn’t view the Eagles as having suffered much of a loss, even if their quarterback for the last 11 seasons is no longer with the franchise.

“I don’t think we lost anything, even with McNabb being gone,” Jackson said.

When McNabb learned of those comments, he wasn’t pleased.

“It’s so wild when people get to talking when you’re not there, but when you’re there everybody loves you,” McNabb said. “So I guess people will go deeper into it than I will. I’m a Redskin, no longer an Eagle. I had 11 great years and I’m moving on with my life, so whoever may say things when I’m gone, more power to them, but it’s not making you look like a bigger man.”

    Oh get off the cross McNabb, he’s just saying they’ll be fine without you. This is always said in one form or another when a key player leaves. If you really wanted to move on you would have kept your big mouth shut you drama queen.

  2. mann1976 says: May 9, 2010 9:23 AM

    Jackson didn’t say anything out of line, he put he confidence with the new guy. what was he suppose to say he 5 if gone now we will suck until i retire? Mcnabb is has and will always be a little sensitive bitch.

  3. .RebaTe says: May 9, 2010 9:27 AM

    “It’s so wild when people get to talking when you’re not there, but when you’re there everybody loves you,” McNabb said.
    Not true. We thought you were an asshole when you were here too.
    – DeSean

  4. dirk_diggler says: May 9, 2010 9:27 AM

    snap!

  5. jdblya says: May 9, 2010 9:28 AM

    All I can say is that I love to watch DeSean play, and think is an awesome weapon. However, the guy has been in the league for two years. Had a great year last year, but really is in no position to talk down on an 11 year veteran with the 3rd highest win percentage behind Peyton and Brady. Nah, you are missing anything but losing McNabb.
    This guy is a little (no pun intended) bit to cocky for his experience. Even though much more talent, I see hints of FredEx when I hear DeSean talk…

  6. last starfighter says: May 9, 2010 9:29 AM

    Jackson is really a douche nozzel. He is TO II in philly.

  7. Krow says: May 9, 2010 9:32 AM

    McNabb has class… Jackson doesn’t. That about sums it up.

  8. Art Vandalay says: May 9, 2010 9:38 AM

    Always felt over the last few years that McNabb’s best chance for a SB would be somewhere else than Philly. Oddly enough, I think the Eagles will have a better chance of winning a SB without McNabb. Weird but that’s how I see it.

  9. Igottz5onit says: May 9, 2010 9:40 AM

    Mcnabb was such a class act and all Philly did was crap on him his whole time there, whereas roethlisberger has been nothing but a turd yet has always been defended by steelers fans. Just goes to show Pittsburgh fans know loyalty, Philly fans no class.

  10. GaryClark says: May 9, 2010 9:40 AM

    Word…McNabb…We will not sell you out. We love you…You are home now…Shhhhh….Hail!

  11. BaltimoreSports says: May 9, 2010 9:42 AM

    If I was on the Eagles I wouldn’t run my mouth until Kolb proves he’s an “upgrade” over McNabb.

  12. Smitty2K3 says: May 9, 2010 9:43 AM

    Kudos to you MDS for only reporting the quotes and not twisting them like a pretzel and translating them into something they’re not.
    I appreciate true reporting like this, minus the opinions. You’re colleagues (cough cough Florio cough) would’ve twisted this to say that Jackson wished McNabb would die in a burning puddle of gasoline.

  13. Youngone says: May 9, 2010 9:43 AM

    Well Desean hasn’t had to carry the franchise on his back before. I’d love to see Kolb implode next year.

  14. Auz says: May 9, 2010 9:44 AM

    Good remarks left by McNabb. DeSean shouldn’t be talking bad about McNabb. DeSean is very good, but McNabb was also the one throwing him the ball. DeSean should remember that time keeps on going by, and one day, DeSean could find himself in his mid 30’s looking for a team to play for. Comments like this do not help promote a player later in their careers.

  15. rmac says: May 9, 2010 9:44 AM

    Watch Jackson’s numbers this year with a Rookie QB running the offense. No more 50 plus yards TDs. Little man will get lost in the offense. The TE will be Kolb’s friend and the RB out of the backfield.

  16. JMClarkent says: May 9, 2010 9:44 AM

    “Keep my name out ‘cha mouth!”
    I wonder if Donnie felt the same way when he was throwing the young players on the team under the bus after the Dallas mauling…

  17. jerseykingpin says: May 9, 2010 9:48 AM

    And if Kolb falls or Jackson don’t get as many passes He will be saying they should of never trade McNabb . He just trying to get in with the new QB lets see if Kolb picks it up . Jackson should of just droped to his knees in front of Kolb and said wip it out then talking shit

  18. StevieG says: May 9, 2010 9:48 AM

    Donovan has always done the right thing when it comes to punks running their mouth. He is a stand up guy who has given his all to his team and his city. He doesn’t deserve this type of talk; however, when it happens he still shruggs it off and does the right thing. Here’s to you Donovan! I hope you end your career on a high note and get the respect you deserve from here on out. The grass isn’t always greener on the other side Philly, and when I say this I do not mean all fans and players, just punks like Jackson and a few unruly fans that have a hard time apprieciating anything. Good luck next year DeSean when you get a high one over the middle from Kolb and get met by that SS.

  19. mmcnulty says: May 9, 2010 9:51 AM

    Why wouldn’t Jackson be happy? McNabb spent years blaming everyone else on the team at every opportunity rather than face up to the fact that he is what was holding the team back.
    Whatever, I’m sure his mom is there to comfort him and tell him he’s special.

  20. wild_eagle says: May 9, 2010 9:54 AM

    Look, Its not so much of djax taking a shot at mcnabb as it was a vote of confidence for kolb.
    BTW this Guy took deseans comments out of context and in an interview later the same day desean made sure he specified his earlier comments weren’t a shot at mcnappy
    Deseans Just happy he has a qb who can hit him in stride… good riddens mcchoke, your Washington’s problem now

  21. promin1 says: May 9, 2010 9:55 AM

    Desean Jackson is one of the biggest jackasses in the NFL. I am no Eagles fan by any means….in fact I hate the Eagles. But for Jackson to say they didn’t loose a thing when McNabb left? Your on another planet. Mcnabb made that team. Jackson is typical moron all about the flash and endzone dancing. Stick to what you know best ghetto trash and leave the commentary to ESPN.

  22. Opie says: May 9, 2010 9:57 AM

    Not exactly Jackson’s full quoted answer, but I wouldn’t expect anything else from you.
    His following sentence explains his, and the organization’s point of view. “Somebody steps out, the next person just has to step in and do a good job.”
    Futhermore, the answer was in response to the question of whether or not the Eagles were rebuilding due to the fact of having so many players 25 and younger.
    Now, I don’t know if DNabb knew the full context of the abbreviated quote given to him, but he did stay classy. Something you have given him crap for since day 1.
    Conclusion: another abbreviated quote not displayed in full context by you to drum the beat of drama.

  23. Shrodin says: May 9, 2010 10:00 AM

    I think what Jackson meant is that even with McNabb gone, the Eagles will still win. It’s about confidence, not about attacking McNabb. This is classic McNabb though… Always taking every little thing said about him so personal. That’s why he always chokes.

  24. CHECK!ONE) says: May 9, 2010 10:00 AM

    Someone needs to put a hat on that ghetto ass punk. He has not earned the right to run smack about an elite player like Donovan.
    Mcnabb is all class!

  25. MrHumble says: May 9, 2010 10:01 AM

    Jackson should play for the packers or da’ boys, two teams who excel at talkin’ trash. McNabb has always been a class act and given 110% on the field…..i say the eagles will miss him bigtime.

  26. medic406 says: May 9, 2010 10:02 AM

    DJack sounds just like Phillyfan. That town doesn’t deserve a good QB. They would boo Unitas, if he had the unfortunate luck of being stuck in that Shitt hole. I don’t care for McNabb myself, but I have to admit he has been one of the better QBs over the last 10 years and has been a class act in the face of much adversity. You idiot Philly brethren deserve the Michael Vicks of the world, not the Kolbs (if he is any good you’ll run him out too). The Eagles are the Raiders without Al Davis. You make me ill.

  27. virtueandvice says: May 9, 2010 10:02 AM

    Can’t wait for McNabb to beat the Eagles. Classless for Jackson and any other player on that team to say anything negative about McNabb. Kolb is going to suck.

  28. FNGS says: May 9, 2010 10:03 AM

    Good response by McNabb

  29. phillyfinsfan says: May 9, 2010 10:03 AM

    DeSean is optimistically waiting for a big contract from the Eagles so he’s going to love every decision they make, especially the one that makes him one of the highest paid wide receivers in the league.

  30. Westport Johnny says: May 9, 2010 10:05 AM

    Jackson is correct. No worse off without Low Throw McNabb.
    People will soon see the benefit of a QB is who is capable of hitting receivers with chest-high passes in stride, rather than 2 feet behind them, a foot off the ground.

  31. penguininbondage says: May 9, 2010 10:05 AM

    Another shot across the bow. Snippy comments from a spinless so called leader.
    What did he expect him to say? ” Oh with Donnie in the Dirt gone we’re gonna suck cause that cracker can’t replace the Raja of Regurgitation!”

  32. SirSuperSouthern says: May 9, 2010 10:06 AM

    DeSean just knows what every other pro fantasy football player knows: Kevin Kolb will put up better numbers than McNabb in 2010. Count it baby!

  33. Tim says: May 9, 2010 10:08 AM

    I hope Jackson gets his monster contract then follows the career path of ‘First Down’ Freddie.
    Give McNabb some respect. Although he wasn’t always great or the fan favorite, he took the Eagles to the playoffs 7 or 8 times out of the 11 seasons he played for them. In the salary cap era (until this year) that is an accomplishment in and of itself. I wish him the best and hope that, with a coach that spends more time offensively game planning than worrying about where his next meal is coming from, he will succeed.

  34. habibfromnewdehli says: May 9, 2010 10:08 AM

    See, I was expecting a story like this to come out…
    But I thought it would happen much closer to the first game between these two teams so they could amp up the television ratings.
    Oh well.

  35. brownsfn says: May 9, 2010 10:09 AM

    Always liked McNabb…besides that Jackson is a “thug” in the making…

  36. Richard says: May 9, 2010 10:12 AM

    Well said Donovan…

  37. EaglesFootball says: May 9, 2010 10:14 AM

    Donovan McNabb needs to keep his mouth shut. He will be lucky to make it 5 games into the season behind that redskins offensive line and the compare the redskins wide receivers to the Eagles. Malcolm Kelly and Devin Thomas are draft busts compared to DeSean Jackson who is one of the best wide receivers in the NFL and Jeremy Maclin who is only going to get better. Good Luck McNabb with the Deadskins because you will NOT be winning alot of games next year with them and i cant wait to see you get injured because you are injury prone and cant play a full football season. McNabb has alot of flaws and accuracy is the biggest one. It is going to be nice to see the Eagles blowout the Redskins twice next year with your buddy DeSean Jackson celebrating in the Endzone and rubbing it in McNabb’s face.

  38. ItalianArmyGuy says: May 9, 2010 10:17 AM

    @McNabb – getting upset when your former teammates show support for the new guy doesn’t make you “a bigger man” either.
    As we have seen many times over the years – T.O. was absolutely right about McNabb. Dude just is not made of championship stuff.

  39. EaglesFootball says: May 9, 2010 10:19 AM

    Donovan McNabb will get injured this year and everyone will see that this was a good trade for the Eagles and bad trade for the Redskins. This guy has not played a full football season in 6 years and he is stuck behind a redskins offensive line that gave up 46 sacks last year and you can not tell me that trent williams is the answer because this guy is not NFL ready and we all know how rookie tackles struggle in there first season in the NFL. Redskins will be LUCKY to win 8 games this year.

  40. leaguemvp says: May 9, 2010 10:21 AM

    They’re all still playing for second place so what difference does it makes what these skins and eagles say?
    The skins are playing for last place, the eagles for third, actually.

  41. GumboFilledEaglesDrunk says: May 9, 2010 10:21 AM

    Donovan is just mad cause now he’s got nobody to throw the ball to.

  42. dklein82 says: May 9, 2010 10:22 AM

    being neither a fan nor a hater of the nfc east, i’m still looking forward to philly/washington twice next year. should be fun to watch.

  43. Hooby says: May 9, 2010 10:23 AM

    theres a reason they dont want you here, donny. YOU ARE AWFUL. kolb has what qbs call accuracy. i love it how everyone except philadelphia doesnt realize that mcnabb is terrible, and by the transitive, everyone except philadelphia thinks it was the wrong idea.
    jackson probly loves the guy but hes 100% right. even if kolb sucks, hes still an improvement.

  44. CKL says: May 9, 2010 10:24 AM

    Should Jackson have said some of what he did? No. Though I wonder if DM also heard Jackson give him a bunch of credit for his development and is simply choosing to whine in the “poor me” vein as per usual. To me, Mc Waaaaaahhhhhb is being his usual sensitive self with his response. There have been far too many stories over the years about his relationships with teammates for me to think he is even a good leader. The proper response would be something along the lines of “DJ is a great young player who’s entitled to his opinion. We had some success together. But I am focusing on my career with Washington now, not the past.”

  45. wwwmattcom says: May 9, 2010 10:29 AM

    Media has to feed the fire. 37 comments in an hour? I would say Michael David Smith did a fine job twisting Eagle/Redskin nipples.

  46. tombrookshire says: May 9, 2010 10:30 AM

    There are a helluva lotta fans that are happy that McNubb is gone, too. Not a hater, but when your time is over, it’s time to move on. And, it was his time to go. I think Shanahan will try to use McNabb’s talent more effectively than Reid ever did. You might even see a renaissance for McNabb, possibly in the way Warner’s career was resurrected with a coach that will play to his strengths and use the running game with a bit more frequency and effectiveness that Reid did. Reid made an old man out of McNabb at 33 by making him 90% of the offense for 8 of 11 seasons.

  47. BlondBlueDevils says: May 9, 2010 10:35 AM

    We will see how happy Jackson is when he doesn’t make sportscenter like he did in 2009.
    He will see that his shelf life is not very good when he is making those short slants in the Westcoast offense, when those safeties and linebackers are keying in on that 165lb frame.
    He can forget about catching those 65 yard bombs, unless of course from Vick’s passes, because Kolb has the arm strength of a fairy.
    Even in the NFL power polls, they have gone from number 7 to number 13 since McNabb has left.
    Some people don’t know how good they have it until they don’t have it anymore. All Kolb has on his resume is 4 tds and 7 picks. Quite impressive I tell you :)
    Personally, I think Maclin is going to be the true number 1 receiver on the team and he runs better and more disciplined routes and has a body that can take more hits.
    You don’t see Maclin running his big mouth.

  48. Viper2000 says: May 9, 2010 10:37 AM

    DeSean is a douche! CANNOT wait to hear philly fans BOO kolb off the field. LoL

  49. mandracchia says: May 9, 2010 10:38 AM

    Hey McNabb is gone, Kolb is here. Kolb will hit the our receivers over the middle and not throw at their feet. Kolb will get us to the SB. McNabb will be lucky to win 4 games. Andy will adjust to the short game and will be learn a short gain turns into a big play. Eagles win 11 games we have a smart offense a speed defense. Their QB can’t throw on his back

  50. .RebaTe says: May 9, 2010 10:48 AM

    It’s just because I’m black, isn’t it?
    – Donovan McNabb

    Mcnabb was such a class act and all Philly did was crap on him his whole time there, whereas roethlisberger has been nothing but a turd yet has always been defended by steelers fans. Just goes to show Pittsburgh fans know loyalty, Philly fans no class.
    ___________________________________
    You really have no clue what the hell you’re talking about. Sure, McNabb was a class act and still is. To say that Philly fans crapped on him his whole time in Philly is both ignorant and moronic, much like yourself.
    Every town realizes when what they have going on isn’t working anymore. In Philly, McNabb’s time was up. He proved over the last few years that he couldn’t carry the team. His inability to complete a 10-yard pass to a wide-open receiver or run three yards for a first down helped solidify this notion.
    Go back to playing lawn darts with your inbred family while the rest of us educated fans comment intelligently.

  52. saturn111 says: May 9, 2010 10:52 AM

    Jackson’s comments hardly warrant the reaction their getting from McNabb, or his supporters. All he did was endorse his FO’s decision and express confidence in his current teammates.
    Normally, comments like that would go unnoticed. But McNabb is just thin-skinned enough to feel the need to respond by making it seem like Jackson’s comments *are* inflammatory while portraying himself as the “class act” who “takes the high road.”
    The true high road would be to say “DeSean’s a great player. And Kevin’s gonna be a good QB in this league. Can’t wait ’til we face each other later this year.”
    I agree with Duck Fallas. McNabb needs to get down off the cross.

  53. BlondBlueDevils says: May 9, 2010 10:53 AM

    For years Kolb thought McNabb was keeping him off the field and as the starter.
    Ironically, McNabb was not his problem. With McNabb on the team, Vick was kept off the field, except for a few wildcat plays a game.
    Now that McNabb is gone, and Vick’s speed and quickness has returned, Kolb cannot be very confident about his longevity as the starter.
    When Vick comes in and throws the 50-60 yard bombs to Maclin, it will not take long for the fans to turn on Kolb.
    Kolb is going to wish McNabb was still on the team. Vick was not even in shape last season and made the highlight reels.
    Kolb will be so nervous and the pressure will be off the roof, especially if he gets off to a slow start. Having Aaron Rodgers and the high octane Packers is not the ideal opener.
    Look for the boo birds very early on.

  54. Highway703 says: May 9, 2010 10:56 AM

    If you would rather have kolb as a qb then mcnabb then you have serious issues and need to get checked out

  55. RedOokies says: May 9, 2010 10:57 AM

    Jackson was just relieved that the off season surgery to implant an extra pair of hands on his hands on his feet is no longer necessary.

  56. meatball13 says: May 9, 2010 10:57 AM

    I cannot seem to find the whole story where djax said this,which usually means it was taken out of context.Besides,what should he say?”Well i guess we are gonna suck this year,because you know McInaccurate’s not here anymore.”….Any of McLovers wanna buy an autographed McCrybaby football ? I can’t stand listening to it cry anymore!!

  57. EaglesFootball says: May 9, 2010 10:58 AM

    Eagles can win 12 to 13 games with Kolb this year and Shanahan is not going to play to Donovan McNabb strength because he is going to get INJURED People. This guy is injury prone and has not played a full season in 6 years and he is behind the worst offensive line in the NFL with a rookie left tackle, no receivers to throw to and slow running backs. Donovan McNabb sucks and he will never win again now that he is with the Redskins. Kolb now has Celek, Maclin, Jackson and LeSean McCoy to throw to. Cant wait to see Trent Cole or Demarcus Ware end Donovan McNabb’s carrer and then everyone will see what kind of bum this guy is and that it was a good trade for the Philadelphia Eagles.

  58. Maxman99 says: May 9, 2010 11:07 AM

    I am a lifelong birds fan and season ticket holder. I wholeheartedly agree with Djax and applaud him for saying it. 5 is a self-absorbed, paranoid punk who SOMEHOW has managed to weave this image of himself as a mature well adjusted man. Let me tell you, that image couldn’t be farther from the truth. I know a few players on the Eagles and they are ECSTATIC that he’s gone. And to set the record straight, anyone who watches football objectively, and not just sportscenter highlights, can plainly see that 5 didn’t “make” this team, he held them back, both with his poor decision making, and his startling LACK of real leadership. I know we are just “stupid” eagles fans, but I have a feeling that Skins fans will know soon enough what I’m talking about.

    McNabbs always a poor poor victim

  61. migp44 says: May 9, 2010 11:10 AM

    Those of you who think that DeSean will struggle with Kolb as the QB should take a quick look at his stat lines from Kolb’s two starts last year. DeSean had 10 catches for 250 yards and two TDs. The touchdowns went for 71 and 64 yards. Although neither of them were deep bombs, it shows that when DeSean is hit in stride with a short pass, he has the ability to make it into a big play.

  62. Hooby says: May 9, 2010 11:11 AM

    wow reading all these posts just shows how dumb the rest of the nfl is…
    1. desean is a thug/has no class? seriously? hes 170 pounds. hes not gonna get caught murdering someone (see; R. Lewis) or DUI (see; D. Stallworth) or raping someone (see; B. Roethlisberger) because he doesnt show that attitude. sure he likes to showboat but so does 95% of all the other WRs.
    2. mcnabb made this team. no doubting that, but any franchise qb is gonna start to suck after he gets older. and suck he did.
    3. kolb sucks? nobody can say anything. except point to his first start. 391 yards on 31 completions. pretty sure this is the very same defense that picked off peyton manning to win a superbowl. and for those of you who say the deep ball dies with mcnabb, kolbs first touchdown to jackson was a 71 yard touchdown (the actual pass went from PHI22 to NO40) and it was right on target.
    trust the people who know mcnabb jackson and kolb best. ditching mcnabb was the right move.

  63. FreeAgentPro says: May 9, 2010 11:13 AM

    I think McNAbb took the high road. THese days, I think an agent measures proper responses to the media questions. I feel sure that McNabb was asked to respond to Jackson’s comment, and his response was measured.

  64. smiley says: May 9, 2010 11:13 AM

    @ItalianArmyGuy,
    “As we have seen many times over the years – T.O. was absolutely right about McNabb. Dude just is not made of championship stuff.”
    Uhm is that to imply that this “Terrell Owens” guy is “championship stuff”. Wow, you really don’t impress me!

  67. Jethro Marx says: May 9, 2010 11:19 AM

    McNabb is the NFL’s biggest tearjerker. Someone in the media needs to start calling him out for this.
    I suggest our caped crusader, Florio, gets on that.

  68. ethan robert says: May 9, 2010 11:22 AM

    Jackson is still mad from the time Donovan stuffed him in a gym bag, drove him out to the municipal waste disposal plant, dropped him off, and made him walk back.

  69. ham1 says: May 9, 2010 11:23 AM

    Blah blah blah. STFU jackson. Who cares what you think. You can trust men with girls names.

  70. lurch's nyquil says: May 9, 2010 11:30 AM

    Can not wait to see how this ass does when Kolb can not read the field and dumps it off to Westbrook… Oh wait he is not there there also. Good luck Eagles fans……………………………..NO AT ALL.
    I am glad that he is talking smack and can not wait for McNabb to light the Eagles dbs up.
    Keep talkin, it can only help.

  71. SKINSFANTOM says: May 9, 2010 11:32 AM

    I WOULD ONCE AGAIN, IN ADVANCE, REITERATE(to philly that means tell again) MY SINCEREST THANK YOU FOR THE NEXT 5 YEARS OF McNABB PROSPERITY. I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO APOLOGIZE TO YOU FOR YOU ACTUALLY LIVING IN PHILLY. LOOKING FORWARD TO KICKING YOUR ASS(AND WHAT THE HELL THE COWGIRLS TOO- THE G-MEN FANS AT LEAST SHOW FOOTBALL KNOWLEDGE) UP/DOWN THE FIELD. HAPPY MOTHERS DAY,HAIL!!!

  72. Bruisersrevenge says: May 9, 2010 11:32 AM

    Say what u want about mcnabb. People love to trash talk him and say how he has never been a good qb, and how he cant throw the ball. Mcnabb made the eagle what they are today. Yeah he might not of won a superbowl with the eagles but he did all he could do for that team. Over the past ten years he has been a top 5 qb in the nfl

  73. oh the usual says: May 9, 2010 11:34 AM

    I think when he says “even with McNabb being gone” implies that he liked McNabb being there, and they did lose a good player, he is just showing confidence in Kolb. If he used the word “especially” well that would be a dick move.

  74. Rick Rickerickski says: May 9, 2010 11:36 AM

    Riiiight….because Kevin corn on the Kolb is the future of the NFL!!! Eagles f’d themselves in the cornhole!

  75. Herpderpin says: May 9, 2010 11:37 AM

    “If you would rather have kolb as a qb then mcnabb then you have serious issues and need to get checked out”
    McNabb doesn’t have the skillset needed to run our offense, he has NO touch, he throws balls that feel like hes throwing wrenches. Kolb has excellent touch and can throw a better slant, read up on it.

  76. EskinSux says: May 9, 2010 11:40 AM

    I agree that Jackson should keep his mouth shut, and it’s not because he’s right or wrong. It’s for the simple fact that the McNabb drama queen act is so played out. Over the years, I’ve seen McNabb, time and time again, blame everyone else but himself for failures. I’ve seen him go thru 3 or 4 game stretches where he could not hit the broad side of a barn. I’ve seen him throw teammates under the bus, I’ve seen him not know basic rules. Every year at camp, I’ve heard his leader speech, and every year he failed to lead them to a championship. I’ve seen his overzealous,over protective parents act as if God himself was the QB. He was with the skins for what….a week?…Before he started acting like the was the GM and lobbying for TO?…..I don’t know if Kolb is going to be any good, and I really don’t care, i’m just glad i don’t have to listen to his whiny little bitch act anymore. Someone should inform McNabb, that in 11 years he made over 100 million dollars as the on field CEO, and produced ZERO results…..

  79. PackerAndDarien says: May 9, 2010 11:53 AM

    It is hysterical listening to the mental midgets lending their words of (very loosely) wisdom.
    Absolutely hysterical.
    Because it’s always from the idiots that are across the nation and not from the area where the the story originates from.
    All they see is what the national media parrots and leaves out the details that the local fans see game in and game out. And they ALWAYS have an opinion that is completely off the mark.
    Hilarious!
    DeSean Jackson talks trash. Uhh..ok. What 24 yr old NFL ALL PRO WR doesn’t? Seriously.
    By the way, “Jamal” is showing EXPLICIT class commenting on the comments of his FORMER teammates. So much he has to give a 4 sentence rebuttal to remark on harmless comments made by a player that extended his career by 2 yrs and then has the gall to show confidence in his starting QB and teammates that he has now.
    What nerve! You hurt “Jamal’s” feelings so much he HAS to get his 2 cents in AFTER he says he’s “moving on”. Really? Moving on? Gotcha.
    I think I’m speaking for everyone that is happy of the change that is taking place with this football team and a change was needed.
    Was it all “Jamal’s” fault? No. But it can be clearly be seen he’s not part of the solution. He was only part of the problem.
    But he’s moving on……after he gets his shots in…..and showing such “class”.

    @BlondeBlueDevil:
    Isn’t it amazing how anybody who thinks Kolb will be good is a moron, but anybody who is sure that he’ll fail miserably is a genius?
    Funny how that works, especially considering the fact that neither camp has seen enough of Kolb to know for sure.
    “Vick’s speed and quickness has returned?” Really? Read GCobb much?
    Why don’t you think up your own thoughts?
    Don’t be such a tool.

  81. WetHog says: May 9, 2010 12:19 PM

    Just ignore them McNabb. You might be on a team now with so/so WR’s and a so/so OL, but at least your out of Philly. Regardless of the Skins win/lose record, you playing anywhere but Philly will make you a better person. Period.

    # Art Vandalay says: May 9, 2010 9:38 AM
    Always felt over the last few years that McNabb’s best chance for a SB would be somewhere else than Philly. Oddly enough, I think the Eagles will have a better chance of winning a SB without McNabb. Weird but that’s how I see it.

  83. ethan robert says: May 9, 2010 12:23 PM

    Nothing you could put a finger on, but the whole time they played together, Jackson had the feeling that McNabb, “looked down at him”.

    “I know quarterbacks like bigger targets, but that was no excuse for Donovan to put me in that box and mail me to Uzbehkistan. No excuse at all.”.

  85. eaglelover1 says: May 9, 2010 12:33 PM

    I am a 30+ Eagles fan. Been watching the Eagles as long as I have been watching Football. To all those that think Mcnabb was the teams problem, that he hindered the team, that it was time for a QB change, or that Kolb’s first 2 games are indicators that he is a great QB here are some points to ponder.
    Kolb lost to the Saints in the 2nd half of that game. His first pass of the Second half gave the Saints an 11 point lead which they never relinquished. The score at the time of the INT…17-13. Against the Cheifs he faced the leagues second to last pass rushing defense.
    To start the 2010 season the Eagles face
    Packers 0-1
    Detroit 1-1
    Jags 2-1
    Wash 2-2
    49ers 2-3
    Atlanta 2-4
    The packers defense and passing game will beat the Eagles. The Lions is actually a ? game as we don’t know what improvment/decline the offseason moves have done to the defense. Jacksonville is a win regardless of wwht they have done. Shanahans Coaching improves the Redskins with Mcnabb at QB. San Fransisco should have beaten the Eagles last year and will beat them this year (3rd in sacks last year). Atalnts, which was decimated by injuries in last years game should be healthy and wn easily. That makes Kolb’s debut 2-4 and looking up at the rest of the NFC east.
    I don’t think Mcnabb was the problem for this team. Reid’s game plan is. Against the Raiders he chose to play right into the teeth of the defense instead of playing against it’s weakness the run game. Which resulted in multiple sacks incompletions. This is just one of the many games LAST YEAR lost by Reid’s decision making.
    I by no means believe that Mcnabb is the greatest QB of all timebut, he is the Greatest QB the Eagles have had in the modern era. Those that say he has no WR’s to throw to in Wash. must not remember Na Brown and Torrence Smalls. 6 and 10 is the Eagles record IF Kolb starts all 16 games. ( Mcnabb went 10-6 his first year a s a starter with far less talent). That offensive line has been carried by Mcnabb for 11 years and Kolb’s lack of athletiscm will show it for what it is.
    I will always be an Eagles fan but, for what the Eagles got and who they traded him to they got hosed big time. Now was not the time to rid the team of a QB that consistantly helped the Eagles to be in place for a SB win. With a better defense and better O-line last year and the year before the Eagles are playing in the SB 2 years straight. All those ” Mcchoke”, “ball in the dirt”, and “Mcwhine” Eagles fans better hope that Reid realizes the mistake he made and names Vick the starter week one or at least uses the #3 pick of the 2011 draft on Terrell Pryor.

  86. homerunharrigan says: May 9, 2010 12:35 PM

    So I guess the way to make yourself a bigger man is to get crushed twice by Dallas, and then say that the team “showed our youth”. Yeah, way to take some responsibility there, Donny. Obviously, it takes a lot of class to blame others.
    I will miss Donovan McNabb the person, but Donovan the QB?? Time will tell, but Donovan, you had your chances, and you choked pretty much everytime….. sometimes on your own vomit. Who’s going to miss a QB that folds when it matters most, and then blames everyone else?
    I’ll tell you what I wont miss, #5: the 100 MPH fastballs to wide open WRs 3 yards downfield that are inaccurate or dropped, bounce passes into the ground, and the giggling that takes place afterwards. We’ll see who’s laughing come week 4, and who the bigger man is then, won’t we? Have fun with the Deadskins.

Just because he’s a little cocky and flamboyant DOES NOT make him like those douchenozzles.

  89. buddha says: May 9, 2010 1:10 PM

    McNabb should keep Philly’s players names out of his mouth too! What a F’n hypicrite! And if you look at Phillys record when McNabb was injured, they never missed a beat. AJ Feeley and Jeff Garcia did just as good of a job as McNabb did so theres no reason why I should think that Kolb cant have success.

  90. Rocksteady says: May 9, 2010 1:36 PM

    Well I am an Eagles fan, so I guess I should hate Don now… since he is a Redskin and all. I gotta agree with the dude here though. Desean is sure to be the next diva in the league, but I’m cool with that as long as he shows up on game day.

  91. KevinKolb4SB says: May 9, 2010 1:43 PM

    Eagle fans did NOT treat McNabb unfairly. I am so damn sick and tired of the media blowing Eagle fans out of porportion just because it makes for a better story. Id argue that Eagle fans are the most loyal as whether we are 13-3 or 3-13 our buts are still packed in the stands. Where as the Cardinals couldnt even sell out a wild card game untill late (pathetic). We are not fareweather fans. So nice try you philly bashers but your facts dont add up. We loved McNabb.
    Now with that said I find it very unfare that many people are not even considering the possibility that Kolb could be better then McNabb. Not even making it a possibility. Look I love McNabb but he is very over-rated in the media. He is a very unaccurate passer with bad mechanics. Holds on to the ball way to late and waits for a WR to become wide open (which is why he has low INT ratio).
    Oh and eaglelover1 you think kolbs going to suck? where is your facts to support your claim on that? He only outthrew Breese by 80 yards. And no it was “NOT” kolb that lossed us that game against the saints, blame the D who couldnt stop crap. Like McNabb hasnt thrown SBs in games that costed us? I remember 3 INTs in the superbowl. HaHa Kolb will be better then McNabb. sit back and watch. cant wait to see everyone tripping over their words when they see the results…lol Eagles going to suprise many people and DeSean Jackson and Brent Celek see that!!!

    Why didnt any players speak up if they felt it was a mistake? Why is DeSean Jackson and Brent Celek talking so much and oozing so much confidence?
    Why is all the coaches and employs and even ex defensive back coach John Harbagh (HC of the Ravens now) even speaking out about how Kolb killed them in practice?
    Point is there is a reason why this happened. Kolb is the better QB PLAIN & SIMPLE. I know the truth is hard to take! And Eagle fans loved McNabb so stop letting the media brain wash you. were the most loyal fans despite the medias crap

People like Jackson are nothing more than unappreciative lil bitches. Does he seem to think his stats would have been better with 20 other QB’s in the league? Matter of fact, you Eagles fans are a bunch of buttnut’s too. Guy takes you to the SB and to the playoffs consistently and all you do is complain. Maybe your better off with Bubby Brister behind center cause you sure as hell don’t deserve a winner! FAGS

    No disrespect to Donovan McNabb, but the Eagles didn’t win the big prize with him leading the way for 11 years. They can’t do any worse with him gone. Sure, they “could” win less games…..they “could” miss the playoffs…..but that doesn’t really matter. The Eagles are at the point where if they don’t win the Super Bowl then the season has been a failure. Maybe it is time for some new blood to take the helm. No one can predict how good or bad Kevin Kolb will be (2 starts doesn’t make a judgment), but maybe….just maybe….he’ll be the added chemistry with the young core of skill players that gets the team over the big hump. It will sure be interesting to find out, anyway!

    How any Superbowl did the Eagles win before Don? How many did they play in before Don? How many peewee, HS, or college championships has Kolb won? LOL. Mcnabb is a PROVEN winner. Yea Mcnabb has accuracy issues but more than makes up for them many ways. That’s obvious as we’ve seen him excel over a decade in a very competitive league and division. For every pass Mcnabb passed over his career, his receivers have dropped 3 passes on him lol. Dude will automatically get injured as a SKin? He got hurt last year taking a cheap shot to the ribs by a massive DT. ALl these other frail QBs wouldnt have recovered like he did. And he still put up some of the better numbers last year missing games. Dude has played and played well on broken ankles, with broken ribs whatever you name it. He’s tough as nails. He shakes LB’s off let’s see Kolb do that. Let’s see Kolb connect on 70 yard frozen lazers across his body and shit lol won’t happen. Even the superbowl which “was Mcnabbs fault” he was GETTING HAMMERED BY SOME OF THE BEST DEFENSIVE PLAYERS OF OUR ERA the entire game. Theres not to many qb’s in this league who coulda taken that beaten and still made the game competitive like that I don’t wanna hear it. Guys done nothing but win and leave it all out there. Yea we got crushed twice last year by Dallas but you all know it wasn’t just Don. Penalties..dropped passes…horrible O-line play..no pass D …not enough pressure on Romo..the play calling .. the Rush D c’mon lol. It’s a team effort. I wish Donovan the best of the luck with the skins..
    Oh and even though the Skins lack a great receiver, their corp is better than what Mcnabb has had to work with over his ENTIRE career barring a few years…lol
    Best of luck Donovan…Desean? Put up or shut up. You aint done shit yet and this is a new year like a poster said above, we’ll see how you fit in this real WCO taking shots from the LBs your facing next year on them slants B.

  105. OranjelloJones says: May 9, 2010 6:13 PM

    I gotta laugh at all the geniuses that keep telling us Kolb is the better QB. If that’s true then why did it take DM being traded for Kolb to finally win the starters job?
    The eagles being so much better at pass catching is pretty amusing too. The redskins have 2 TE’s who’s jock Celek couldn’t carry (Cooley is arguably the best), A WR in Moss who is just as electric of a playmaker if he’s got someone who can actually put it in his hands downfield, and talented youth that is easily the equal of what the Eagles have in reserve. No more Westbrook, no more mobile QB who avoids the pass rush, not much of anything at RB (certainly not better than what Washington has) an O line that is no more solid without DM avoiding the guys they let through. So at worst it’s a wash in offensive talent, at best DM actually has more options and better protection from the scheme of a Coach who is known for making no names into 1500 yard backs and resurrecting “old and over the hill, choker” QB’s. He’s also been to the show a few times and unlike Reid has won a few.
    Oh and it’s also comical to see Eagle fans try and defend their fanbase’s treatment of this guy. Your fanbase is the most loyal? Hahahahahaha! You frickin booed the guy at the draft and it pretty much never let up from some of you brainiacs the entire time he was there. The LAST thing you prize winners are is loyal, you prove that in spades by turning on the guy when he was traded to a rival. Most loyal fans and always have seats filled in the stands….Hmmmm how long is your sellout streak? Where were all those fans during the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s? And since when do loyal fans boo a guy before he even hits the field? Oh that’s right they were booing the pick and the FO…not MacNabb. Riiiiiight.
    One thing is indeed true, these two teams are going to be fun to watch play each other this year.

    Good remarks left by McNabb. DeSean shouldn’t be talking bad about McNabb. DeSean is very good, but McNabb was also the one throwing him the ball.
    OK Lets stop there!!!
    See what he said?? “McNabb was”
    Case Point. McNabb WAS…Kolb “IS”
    DJac is Praising his new QB much more then he is trying to insult his “OLD QB” IMO…McNabb has been pointing the finger of Failure for 3 years now and to Many of Eagles fans it got old…I assume it got old with the FO as well. Thats why DMac got the Boot and why I agree with DJac!

    Kolb has the arm strength of a fairy.
    Really? Granted he can’t throw as far as McNabb but his long ball isnt bad. He also throws with accuracy which is/was/will be Key to our Offense Not the Long bomb! McNabb was horrible at sustaining drives, as he could not dink and dunk unless it was a screen to westbrook. Why do you think Westy was so Key?? He could catch passes at his knees and run for another 10-15 yards. Kolb will not have that problem. he will also be able to toss the ball 30 yards down the field.

  108. jreed says: May 9, 2010 8:46 PM

    McNabb has to face the music and realize that he was cut for a reason. I will come out and say it right now. McNabb is not as good as people think he is….”Any more”. McNabb was great Pryor to 2006. Now all he is good for is tossing a long bomb that WRs have to catch up to. He cannot his anyone in stride over the middle. He has a very “Long” Memory when it comes to mistakes (Always has). And he is getting a bit too old to scramble (Which was his Forte’ for many of years). Now that we have moved on, It is time for the team mates, not to bicker about what we lost, But to praise who we have left. That is what DJac is doing. McNabb was never good a brushing off anything. He always took things to heart and this is his biggest downfall. Washington, I wish you the best of luch with “Donnie’s Dirt balls” in the up-in-comming season!

    You are a Dumb-ass! I have known many of Redskins fans (Being that I live in the Balt-DC Area) Who have come out in spades week one of every past 10 or so seasons saying that this was the year that the Skins will win the Bowl (again)…By week 5 they refuse to wear the Burg-and-Gold and swear at their own team. I see it every year dude, plain as sight. Its not just one or two…its pretty much all of them. This year will not be any different one McNabb tosses a few of his famous Dirt balls on a 3rd and 4 on the line of scrimmage.
    Eagles Fans are harsh and will tell you that you suck (if you suck), But we show our colors and are proud to be Green….(Even if we Suck) Eagles fans will always be “Die Hard”

    How any Superbowl did the Eagles win before Don?: Zero
    How many did they play in before Don?: 1 and 1 with “Don”
    How many peewee, HS, or college championships has Kolb won?: How many did McNabb win and what does it matter? how many did Brady win..(Zero)
    Mcnabb is a PROVEN winner.:In what Sence? That he has won football games? so has Kolb…So in your Logic. Kolb is a proven winner too. Also Both Kolb and McNabb are Proven Losers too since they both have lost games as well.
    For the Rest of you comment…You pretty much stated the obvious. McNabb is a stronger QB then Kolb…and Most of the Qb’s in the League. The only other stronger QB i would say would have to be Ben Roth. However, Kolb will be fine because he has a quick release and will avoid the big hits in that aspect. Most Refs protect the smaller QB’s better then the bigger ones anyway so Kolbs “Size” could benifit us then “McNabb’s” size. We very rarely got late hit calls on Donovan.

    Dude, you make some valid points but have you “watched” any of the games in the past 3 years? McNabbs “Greatness as a QB” could be summed up in 2 drives during the opening of the game for the past 3 years. If McNabb came out throwing down the field, between coverage, over the middle…and completed the passes…we won the game. IF he came out and tossed a dirt ball, threw behind the WR, missed the longball…..chalk it up as a loss. I am a 30+ year old Ealges fan that has been watching the Birds since I was 8 years old. I noticed this right away and was wondering why it took 3 years for Andy to see this…Oh Wait….Hmmm Maybe it Didnt, But it took Kevin that long to be able to Seamlessly replace Donovan…..Ever think about that? Ever wonder why we were playing “Better” Ball without McNabb when he was hurt. The Team came out and said (multiple times) that they pulled together in is absence…Or is it just Andy’s System is better played without McNabb? always two sides to the coin…lets see which side the coin lands!

    OK Check it out, I just read every stupid comment on here (I didnt have computer Access all day today) and After talking with some friends and other Fans. It seems to me that Most of the doubters (Which are Eagles fans) are more concerned with Kolb rather then miss McNabb. IMO, I am excited to see what Kevin can do. We have all seen exactly what McNabb can do and that it squat. McNabb (As far as winning the big Game) Has been a bust. He is also been getting worse as time goes on. I see Promise in Kolb and see him getting better in the next few years. whereas Mcnabb is in his decline….To Me, Moving on with Kolb was a better Choice. Dont Fret the small stuff and just think about the obvious. Which QB Will throw more passes in 2011? in 2012? in 2013? I see Kolb as a starter for 8+ Years….McNabb will most likely be done in 2 seasons. Before anyone comes out with the Favre crap. McNabb is tough but wayyyy less tough then Favre.

    To Jreed, oooomorrisooo,
    First, Only 2 QB’s in the Eagles LLLOOOOONNNNGhistory have made it to the SB but only one gets any love from the city.
    Jreed your comment “Ever wonder why we were playing “Better” Ball without McNabb when he was hurt. The Team came out and said (multiple times) that they pulled together in is absence…Or is it just Andy’s System is better played without McNabb? ” Dude you don’t really watch or know anything about football.
    During the Feeley episode as with Garcia the RUN/PASS ratio was evened dramatically. (as it should be with Kolb) Garcia nor Feeley had to throw the ball 35-45 times a game. During Garcias stint Westbrooks carries went from 10-15 times a game to 15-25 times a game hence the 5 100 yard games in a row.
    That SB “loss” that Mcnabb earned weren’t the Eagles winning that game at the half regardless of all the sacks and hits he took during that HALF of football? On 3rd and goal at the 7 yard line was that Mcnabb playing CB cheating in the backfeild win Brady threw that laser to a WR that was just STANDING THERE WAITING FOR THE BALL?
    And since I am bringing up old games what was the score of that Saints game at half time BEFORE Kolb threw his first INT of the game? 13-17. Was that his first pass of the 2nd half? Yeah it was.
    And to that dumbass that quoted the team as saying Kolb was kicking ass in pratice last year. I quote Brent Celek ” Kolb is an INT MACHINE. That is all he does in practice is throw INT’s.
    Dirt balls and choking does not make you the 3rd winningest QB of the decade behind 2 sure fire HOF in Brady and Manning. I too hope that Kolb is everything that the FO belives he is BUT, something about him tells me they are wrong. Maybe it’s the fact that it took him 3 YEARS to unseat Mcnabb, maybe it’s because he is a University of Houston QB (we all know how the last 2 panned out), Maybe it’s because he has twice as many INT’s as he does TD’s maybe it’s because I have become accustomed to being a fan of a winning orginazation where if the QB plays the seasons games the team is REALISTICALLY vying for a SB.

    Here are a few more points….
    Kolb needs to make the playoffs his first year as starter and win a playoff game. Seeing that he has MUCH better weapons than Mcnabb did.
    Kolb needs to LEAD the team to a new franchise record for points with the same weapons Mcnabb did last year.
    Kolb needs to be the BEST QB in the CONFERENCE in his first year.
    If Kolb is so much better than Mcnabb the Eagles should be playing for a SB win in his 2nd year. Mcnabb was in the NFC conference game his 2nd year as starter and and again with FAR LESS talent.
    There are a few more things Kolb needs to do to make ME forget about #5 under center. But I don’t want to overload the young man’s plate.

    Eaglelover1,
    Of course McNabb was a great QB for Philly. I was a HUGE supporter of his. But there are three reasons why I wanted him to go…and a fourth reason why I said I will never watch a game again if he is our QB.
    First Reason.
    Once he lost the ability to change the game with his running skills he became a pocket passer. As a pocket passer he was too inaccurate to sustain drives. Dont get me wrong, he was a very good pocket passer, but when he lost the run ability he also fell out of the league of the top 5 QBs and landed more in the middle of the pack.
    Second Reason.
    He doesn’t take it personally. A QB should live and die with wins and losses. If his team loses he should feel and say that HE lost…if they win he should feel that HE won but SAY that the team won. McNabb blamed everyone else for losses…not all the time, but enough to irritate me.
    Third Reason.
    After 11 years I was just growing tired of seeing the same faces….kinda like when your wife gets a new and very different haircut…or even dyes her hair a different color. In bed its nice to see something different. This is not McNabbs fault that he was here too long…its to his credit and shows that he belongs in the HOF (if he can lead the Redskins to a playoff win before he’s done IMHO).
    Fourth Reason
    I said I will never watch a game with him under center again because he called last season successfull because we won 11 games. Despite the fact that Dallas humiliated us twice to end our season.
    I will not watch a Philly QB play who is satisfied with anything less than a superbowl win.

  118. mateagle2 says: May 10, 2010 9:30 AM

    I have been right in the Mac5 corner for his entire Philly career… until that last lost to Dallas. That loss was just too much to watch, as I screamed at the TV “hit the Hot route!”. When he did attempt to hit the Hot route, almost without exception he made an uncatchable throw to the intended reciever. He made long throw after long throw as he was falling to the turf and left the Eagles fan base scratching thier heads wondering what he was thinking. Where was the screen pass? Bottom line was that he fell in love with the long ball and became way too predictable. This year we will have the upper hand against all opponents, because the previous years game tape will show nothing of what to expect. This is a new team with a new approach at the line of scrimmage. So all you Dallas fags come into the game expecting to see the same old Eagles and you will be the ones left scratching your heads in wonder.

    Exactly, WetHog, but he couldn’t. McNabb had to take the bait and respond.

  121. G-Lew says: May 10, 2010 12:02 PM

    It’s funny that McNabb doesn’t like Desean’s comments when McNabbsaid similar things right after TO got hurt.
    Anyone remember when he was asked by reporters how the Eagles would fare with TO injured, and McNabb responded that they would be fine, that they wouldn’t miss a beat and that McNabb is the captain of the team?
    It had been widely reported that those comments were the beginning of the end of the McNabb-TO relationship.

    Eaglelover1: “Dude you don’t really watch or know anything about football. ”
    Seriously? Its Obvious that you need to ask yourself that question. What will it take for you to realize that McNabb is a Declining QB? I am soooo happy that he was traded this year. I would hate to see the team hang onto him like they did other players that were noticeably getting worse and then 90% of the Fan base is screaming at the FO to cut him. If we hung onto McNabb it would have cost the team $$ and Kolb would have most likely walked to become the next Sunny Jerg for some other Lucky Franchise.
    The “TEAM” Has been carrying McNabb since 2006 and all he can do is point fingers when the “TEAM” Loses a game. Kolb is a TEAM Player and the TEAM will do much better with him under center regardless of the Interceptions he throws.
    I assume that Kolb (This Year) will put up numbers like Favre did his first start. It wont be pretty but there will be wins. I can see us losing Division but getting a WC Seed into the playoffs. We will have a harder sched then last year. McNabb as the almighty QB could not beat a team that was over .500 last year, Lost 3 times to a Sorry looking Cowboys team. (Before any cowboys fans chime in, You guys looked horrible in almost every game you played but were able to squeak it out in the end) Kolb will be a better all around QB by year 2012 then McNabb was since 2006. I dont expect McNabb to be playing in 2012 due to the frequency of his injuries and lack of Passing consistency under center.

    “And to that dumbass that quoted the team as saying Kolb was kicking ass in pratice last year. I quote Brent Celek ” Kolb is an INT MACHINE. That is all he does in practice is throw INT’s. ”
    I’d like to see where you got this quote from Celek on Kolb, because I think you are full of crap. In case you don’t know Celek is Kolb’s best friend on the team and has been one of the most out spoken people for Kolb to take over as QB smart guy. Now I did read the John Harbaugh quote about Kolb being almost unstoppable in the redzone in practice when he was with the Eagles, But I can’t seem to find that Celek quote anywhere that you speak of but maybe that’s because you pulled it out of your ass huh.

    i always thought d-mc was a great qb….kolb could pan out but there is no way losing 11 yrs experience is a good thing. its going to fun watching the birds vs the skins. cannot wait. as a bonus we get to see the always sexy, always foxy, always leggy pam oliver….she is a goddess!

  128. jibfest says: May 10, 2010 5:50 PM

    Eagles fan here, always been a McNabb fan. I will say he is a whiny little girl who can’t let anything go without a response. Simply lacks the heart to win a Superbowl. McNabb was also never a guy you could look at think that he would lead you back. Just a different make-up.

    I love how the bEagle apologists try to interpret Jacksons statements with “Uh, I think he was merely trying to say…”
    The laughable irony is that one group of illiterate, crystal meth smoking jackasses are trying to speak for another illiterate diva.

    Your right Donovan Deseans comments didnt make him the bigger man your comments made him the bigger man.
    You were just waiting for any excuse to say something about the Eagles. So you tried to turn Deseans comments that were only about supporting Kolb into an attack on you. That is pathetic.
    I have always been 1 of the biggest Mcnabb supporters in the league and was pissed when they let him go but him acting like this really makes me question all the times I took his side.
    Maybe T.O. Bernard Freddie and the countless others were right about you.

  131. Surfer Dude says: May 12, 2010 11:53 AM

    All McNabb had to do was say “I didn’t read the whole article” (which he likely didn’t). Heck, he likely didn’t even read the whole quote. He just ASSUMED he was getting dissed.
    That should tell you something about Don.
    Perhaps Don needs his blankee.

  132. The Hogster says: May 18, 2010 12:19 AM

    Dear Delusional Eagles Fans:
    McNabb was your best player for a decade. He is not the reason you didn’t win a Superbowl. Your teams just weren’t good enough.
    Thanks,
    Reality
