And someone else feels the need to voice their opinion on Philly's love (or lack of) for McNabb. Silly me, I actually enjoyed Michael Strahan on the Fox pre-game show.
Courtesy of Strahan...
"Everybody in Philly – when he's [McNabb] gone, they're going to miss him," Strahan told the Daily News yesterday. "Even if they'd won the Super Bowl, I don't know if they'd be happy. It's like he can't do enough."
Enough people. Stop with the lies!
The city, the Eagles' fans do appreciate McNabb and everything he has meant to the city of Philadelphia and the Eagles' franchise. Sure there are going to be a few idiots who boo McNabb on draft day or as a group we might occasionally become annoyed by passes hitting the ground a bit too often.
BIG SHOCKER to the world...the overriding emotion for McNabb is that of love, respect, and appreciation from the Eagles' fans.
You don't believe me.
Let's rewind the clock back to the Steelers' game this season. It was a home game. At a point in the game McNabb left the field with an injury. McNabb remained in the locker room at the start of the second half. When the fans saw McNabb exit the tunnel early in the 3rd quarter the ENTIRE stadium got on their feet and applauded his return. That is 60,000+ screaming fans!
I wish people would stop writing and talking about what isn't true.
