The Eagles To Retire Number 5

Posted July 29, 2013
In two moves that seemed to take longer than it need to happen, McNabb plans to retire an Eagle, and the Eagles plan to retire his number. No one will ever wear the number 5 for the Eagles ever again as it should be. It's a shame it took as long as it did for these two parties to come together, but now that it's happened perhaps there can be a reconciliation process as it was when BDawk came back. All in all I give credit to Jeff Lurie and the Eagles organization for working hard to bring back old Eagles back to the fold. For sometime they nest has been missing some of the old birds. This practice was very prevalent under the former tight pursed owner Norman Brahman who never spent more on the team than he had to. As such there weren't any type of events that brought the old guys back to the nest and he haggled every player on the roster (except maybe Randall) on every cent he could. His cheapness is the reason we have free agency today. Regardless, the fact 5 is back in the nest and the hard feels seem to have been healed is a good thing.
