Guess what? Donovan McNabb has opinions. What a jerk. I know, right?

Guess what else? McNabb gets paid to express those opinions by the NFL Network. What a jerk. I know, right?

Yeah, but seeing as it is his job and all, we as Eagles fans or members of the media who cover the team probably don’t need to have a reaction to every time the man complains about Tony Romo’s contract, or Matt Stafford’s contract, or wow this dude has a lot of beef with other quarterbacks who happened to get paid. And we definitely should not care the slightest bit if he wants to have a heart-to-heart with Robert Griffin about life in the national spotlight or on a boat or anywhere else.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not pretending everything McNabb says or Tweets is off limits, and could never be worth picking apart for our own amusement ever again. We still don’t have all 53 teammates’ takes on whether or not the guy puked during the Super Bowl – that topic never gets old!

Heck, we can even debate his Hall-of-Fame credentials until the end of time (Get it? Because he’ll never get in!) and if his number five should be retired or not until it eventually happens two three decades from now.

But we’re all long past interested in most of what Donovan has to say, which funny enough is in part due to the fact that he’s supposed to be commenting on Stafford’s new contract or participate in awkward angles where he meddles in Griffin’s personal life. That’s what media folks do I’m told.

In other words, if you can’t stand hearing what Donovan McNabb has to say, you better bury your head in the sand. He’s not going away – unless somebody decides to change the channel or unfollow.

    Guy’s gotta make a buck somehow.

    Wasn’t this guy the first $100 Million QB? Don’t players talk all the time about how the NFL is a fraternity? I’m struggling to figure out where he gets off taking shots at these guys. Also, his analysis of Stafford includes “too many turnovers late in games”. I mean, I guess 5 would know since he pretty much wrote the book on that.

    McNabb has joined Schilling among the ranks of ex Philly athletes who won’t shut up & leave us alone already.

      But… it’s his literal job.

      At least Schilling knows what he’s talking about and was one of the best pitchers of his generation.Disagree,look at his stats even after he left Philly.He can be opinionated,but #5 is just a jackass.

    Hey, Kulp. Remember how we haven’t won a playoff game since McNabb left? And how Kolb plays for the Bills now?

      I like McNabb. I was just having a little fun.

    I never thought I’d ever hate anyone on NFL Network more than Deion Sanders and Michael Irvin.

    I was wrong…

    Never understood all the hate and snark by jerk writers towards Mcnabb.

  7. Truthteller - Jul 11, 2013 at 8:52 PM

    One other thing, Kulp, besides being a blogger (HUGE accomplishment btw), what have you ever accomplished to give you the right to be such a D-bag? Right, exactly.
