Default McNabb Not Happy, Making Noise in Philly

Donovan McNabb Interview Adds Some Noise to a Quiet Offseason


Quote:
Donovan McNabb called into the local ESPN radio station this afternoon. In short, McNabb does not appear too happy with the current makeup of the team or his standing in the community.

Fans and coaches have been high on rookie wide receiver DeSean Jackson. Coaches have called him a natural and fans drool over his potential big play ability.

McNabb appears to have zero hope of Jackson making an impact this year. Donovan repeatedly stated that Eagles rookies don’t make plays and do not start. Would it have hurt to have thrown Jackson a compliment? I guess we shouldn’t expect many passes thrown in Jackson’s direction this year.

McNabb, who had screamed for the Eagles to bring in playmakers this offseason, noted the big name additions to the defensive unit. Does McNabb think Asante Samuel was a good signing? “We didn’t need to address the secondary.” I guess not.

Does Donovan feel as strongly as Reid with the current makeup of the Eagles' receivers? Donovan repeatedly mentioned his requests for playmakers to be brought in. It does not take a genius to figure out playmakers equal receivers.

Despite his dysfunctional relationship with Terrell Owens, Donovan would welcome Chad Johnson coming to the Eagles.

So much for building chemistry with your receivers during the offseason. Eli Manning begs for his receivers to be at camps to establish report. Donovan begs for any one but his current group of receivers.

Wonder why Eli has a ring and Donovan does not?

And no McNabb interview would be complete without a few minutes of Donovan whining about his poor treatment by fans. McNabb repeatedly mentioned how heavily scrutinized he is. McNabb even went as far as saying that nobody in the NFL over the past 10 years has been scrutinized as much as him.

When you are the quarterback of a high profile team in a high profile city, of course scrutiny will follow. Just look at the criticism that was thrown at Eli Manning prior to the Giants' Super Bowl run. Did Manning complain how unfairly he was being treated? No he did not.

Wonder why Eli has a ring and Donovan does not?

[Events like today make it hard to fully stand behind McNabb. Yes, he is a great quarterback and without him recent Eagles' success would have been unattainable. But the "whoa is me" act makes you wonder if it is time to turn the page.

i think that follows any qb in any city. they are the ones that under the microscope the most and take the most heat when things dont go right.

I have to agree, eli didnt complain when he was thrown under the bus in NY... you didnt hear ben complain when he was thrown under the bus for a bad decision he made that gave us a crappy season...maybe eli and ben are more mature than donavan??did i just say that..lol

Obviously he's never played for the Steelers. We were spoiled by the likes of Bradshaw and not until Big Ben did fans curtail their hostilities towards the QB - but even now Ben is made known when the 75,000+ in the stands don't prove!

If he don't like it then he should go elsewhere.

Yeah, I lost my respect for the guy a while ago when he tried to play racial-card, & kinda blamed discrimination for his unsuccessful career.
