Here’s 6 Seconds of Donovan McNabb Getting a Huge Ovation from Philly Crowd [UPDATED w/ McNabb's Thoughts]

Jul 28, 2013, 2:36 PM EDT

The Eagles held their first full-pads training camp practice of the Chip Kelly era this afternoon in front of a healthy crowd at the Linc in South Philadelphia; although it was nothing near a 65,000 person sellout. Nobody has torn an ACL yet today (that we know of), so that’s good. The most talked about moment from this afternoon seems to be when all of the former players in attendance were introduced to the fans.

Not surprisingly, Brian Dawkins got a fantastic response from the crowd, as did former backup extraordinaire A.J. Feeley. But what about Donovan McNabb?

No. 5 got quite the ovation according to those at the Linc. You can get a quick idea of it in the vine clip below.

McNabb will officially retire as a member of the Eagles tomorrow. Hopefully he can stop talking about the past so we can just enjoy some of those positive memories.

More from Sunday’s practice to come…

UPDATE: McNabb called the reception “warm.”

    He will still keep the victim role going strong on a national level.

    I’d have cheered for him, too. He was a very good player despite some folks’ perception of him.

      Agreed. This team hasn’t done anything since he left and they arguably have more weapons.
