Donovan McNabb

  1. The five best/worst tweets about Donovan McNabb’s mugshot

    Apr 17, 2014, 3:47 PM EDT


    The Maricopa County (Arizona) sheriff’s office released a mugshot of former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb on Thursday afternoon but it was initially unclear what alleged crime was committed. Deadspin then tracked down a criminal traffic citation from back in January, and PFT says the two are likely related. It’s still not really clear what…

    Donovan McNabb responded yesterday to Shawn Andrews’ claims that the Eagles quarterback was degrading towards him and spread rumors that really affected his time in Philadelphia. McNabb was speaking on NBC Sports Radio and dismissed Andrews’ claims as outlandish more so than actually responding substantively to any of the claims: “For everything that I’ve been…

  3. Shawn Andrews: Donovan McNabb was degrading, spread rumors

    Nov 20, 2013, 11:37 AM EDT


    Former All-Pro offensive lineman Shawn Andrews was back in the news a couple weeks ago claiming he was bullied by Donovan McNabb while a member of the Eagles. Andrews declined to get too deep into specifics at the time, but he assured us McNabb rolled his eyes a few times. What Andrews wouldn’t tell Mike…

    Fresh off the heels of the Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin situation, former Eagles offensive lineman Shawn Andrews is accusing his ex-teammates of mistreating him during his time in Philadelphia. Of all people, Andrews had plenty to say about Donovan McNabb — albeit without ever saying much of anything. Andrews went on 97.5 The Fanatic Friday afternoon…

    A not-so-great former athlete with an outlandish sense of self who can’t seem to stay out of trouble, on social media and otherwise. Where have I heard this before? Like, really recently? Freddie Mitchell — best known for his great hands, but most recently known for a tax fraud scheme and having seven pounds of…

  6. Donovan Loves You, Eagles Fans

    Sep 20, 2013, 3:32 PM EDT

    Donovan McNabb, Brian Dawkins

    We’ve all probably wasted more words on Donovan McNabb over the years than we all care to admit. The guy elicits emotions. All kinds of them. And the same can be said of his speech and number retiring ceremony during halftime last night at the Linc. I’ll note one part about the whole thing that…

  7. On the Legacy of Andy Reid and Donovan McNabb in Philadelphia

    Sep 19, 2013, 3:02 PM EDT


    Andy Reid and Donovan McNabb probably aren’t as polarizing in Philadelphia as they often seem. There is just this extremely vocal minority that refuses to display any appreciation—or even a modicum of respect in some cases—for the two men who were the faces of the Eagles’ franchise during the greatest era in the organization’s history.…

  8. Donovan McNabb will return to Philly tonight: do you think he’ll get a reaction from the crowd? Your Thoughts?

    Sep 19, 2013, 11:49 AM EDT


    No, that post title is not a @DonovanJMcNabb tweet. But it probably could be. McNabb is back in town and he’s still the same old Donovan as demonstrated by some fantastic tweets by CSN Eagles scribe Reuben Frank last night. Let’s start with the soft stuff: Donovan: “I think Brent Celek learned from a guy…

  9. Photos/Videos: A Tribute to Donovan and Andy

    Sep 19, 2013, 9:26 AM EDT


    Fourteen seasons after Andy and Donovan’s first with the Eagles, it’s easy to remember the key moments. But sometimes, you just forget how young everybody looked, which reminds you just how long it’s been. Sure, Andy is coming back tonight as a coach of a different team — strange enough — but Donovan McNabb is…

  10. Andy Reid Wants Donovan McNabb for Protection in Return to Philly?

    Sep 18, 2013, 12:57 PM EDT


    Did you hear? The Kansas City Chiefs and their new head coach Andy Reid are playing in Philadelphia tomorrow night and the game will be televised for a national audience. Some of you may remember that guy. Liked mesh shorts and Hawaiian shirts, took the Eagles to a Super Bowl, liked fat jokes. Plenty has/will…

    Michael Vick

    For all those years, every true Eagles fan prayed that one day, we’d at last be rid of Joe Banner, Donovan McNabb, and Andy Reid. One by one, we got our wish. So why does being an Eagles fan still suck? Here are ten reasons why, counting down: 10. Michael Vick, whose last playoff win…

  12. 2013 Philadelphia Eagles: Predictions for All 16 Games

    Sep 5, 2013, 7:30 PM EDT


    Week 1 at Washington – Win, 37-27 Chip Kelly shocks the world with his offense – by coming out and running the triple option out of the Flexbone on Monday Night Football. Michael Vick, LeSean McCoy, and Bryce Brown combine to rush for over 300 yards against the Redskins, who are caught completely off-guard by…

  13. Is RG3 Ready for Week 1 Against the Eagles?

    Sep 3, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT


    Two situations spring to mind when I think about Robert Griffin III under center for the Washington Redskins just eight months removed from a torn ACL, not to mention without attempting so much as a single pass in a preseason game this summer. First, I think of Donovan McNabb in 2007, less than one year…

  14. VIDEO: RGIII Doesn’t Think Donovan McNabb Is An Idiot So McNabb Thinks RGIII Is Brainwashed

    Aug 14, 2013, 11:33 AM EDT


    I’m not going to dig to deep into this one, mostly because I simply don’t care all that much about what Donovan McNabb has to say about anything, but also because our friends over at CSN already laid out all the basics of this story. Quick summary: RGIII told GQ the following: “I don’t think…

  15. Donovan McNabb Pick Could Have Been Edgerrin James

    Jul 30, 2013, 11:10 AM EDT


    Imagine if Donovan McNabb had been chosen first overall by the Cleveland Browns in the 1999 NFL Draft instead Tim Couch. Say what you want about Five, but in hindsight that’s definitely what should have happened. Well, where would that have left the Eagles? Probably not where you would expect. Team owner Jeffrey Lurie shared…

  16. Donovan McNabb to Have His No. 5 Retired by Eagles, Gives Emotional Speech

    Jul 29, 2013, 10:38 AM EDT


    It was nothing but love for Donovan McNabb in South Philadelphia on Monday morning at the NovaCare Complex as No. 5 officially retired as a member of the Eagles. When a press conference starts out with a video montage featuring plays like the 14-second scramble against the Cowboys, the juke against the Redskins, and 4th…

  17. 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…

  18. Donovan McNabb Finds a Way to Throw Michael Jordan Under the Bus

    Jul 25, 2013, 11:41 AM EDT


    The latest in Donovan McNabb’s media rounds appears in the September issue of Philadelphia Magazine and was made available to read online this morning. [Check out our post yesterday on Five's odd comments about Jim Thome] It’s another wide-ranging Q&A that goes from being booed on draft day to not puking in the Super Bowl…

  19. Donovan McNabb Says Jim Thome Had a Rough Time Dealing with Philly Fans

    Jul 24, 2013, 4:45 PM EDT


    In an interview with Paul Domowitch that’s set to run in full inside Thursday’s edition of the Daily News, Donovan McNabb touches on a number of topics related to his Eagles career – his opinion of Philly fans, whether or not he’ll be booed at his retirement ceremony at the Linc this September, and some…

    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…

    May 16, 2013, 1:19 PM EDT

    Image (1) mcnabb.jpg for post 485279

    Donovan McNabb was a guest on 97.5 the Fanatic this morning to talk about the news that he’ll be coming back to Philadelphia this fall to retire as an Eagle. He throws some cold water on the idea that the ceremony will take place the week Andy Reid and the Chiefs are in town, pointing…

  23. No, Donovan McNabb Should Not Have His Number Retired

    May 16, 2013, 9:40 AM EDT


    Most of us were happy if not downright enthusiastic about the news Donovan McNabb would officially retire a member of the Philadelphia Eagles in September. There are a few Angelo Cataldi types out there who still believe the greatest quarterback in franchise history should be booed some more, but thankfully they seem to be part…

    Image (4) mcnabb_runs_for_his_life_2.jpg for post 485902

    Donovan McNabb has taken the brunt of many jokes since his departure from Philadelphia on that weird Easter Sunday a couple of years ago. Much of that criticism has been warranted while much of it has not. What no Eagles fans should do, however, is attempt to look back on the McNabb era in Philadelphia…
