Donovan McNabb On the Hot Seat?

FoxSports.com ranks the top 10 players on the hot seat entering the 2008 season.

And of course Donovan McNabb makes an appearance. And somehow Philadelphia fans and Santa Claus is mentioned in the breif blurb about McNabb!
"In a town whose fans would ask Santa Claus, 'What have you done for us lately?' the guy suiting up at quarterback never feels comfortable sitting down in Philly. With understudy Kevin Kolb learning more of the playbook every day, the pressure on McNabb will intensify. But he could keep Philly happy by handing the ball to Brian Westbrook and flipping it to rookie DeSean Jackson. Here's some good news: the offensive line returns intact. Here's some bad news: Eagles quarterbacks were sacked 49 times last season."

It is difficult to argue McNabb not belonging on the list. The success of the Eagles in 2008 does hinge on the health of McNabb. McNabb's play in 2008 could also determine if he is back with Eagles in 2009 or playing elsewhere.

Others making the list are Reggie Bush, Matt Leinart, Matt Ryan, Jake Long, Matt Forte, LaDainian Tomlinson, Chad Johnson, Roy Williams, and Aaron Rodgers.
