Believe it or not, the question was proposed to Eagles head coach Andy Reid at the NFL owners meetings yesterday.
Here’s how Reid responded:
“I’m surprised by the fact that he didn’t have the success after leaving Philly. I wasn’t there. I’m not sure how that worked. I still felt when he left here that he had 2 or 3 years of great football. It didn’t work out that way for him. I haven’t entertained that last part of the question. I haven’t gone there. I think it’s tough for a guy that’s been the guy for that long to come back.”
I doubt he will return, but the Eagles (meaning Andy Reid) love Mcnabb.

Donovan McNabb is no stranger to playing the victim. Like any other superstar athlete, he has faced his fair share of unfair criticism. Unlike many others who have been placed in similar situations, McNabb always lets us hear about it. In other words, he’s a complainer. Since Skip Bayless is the ideal candidate to bring out the whiner in anyone, he got McNabb to do a little more...

Will Andy Reid and the Philadelphia Eagles select a quarterback early in the 2012 NFL draft? That is a popular question right now and one I’ve been back and forth on in my head since the end of last season.
As the Eagles’ torturous 8-8 season finally came to an end, it was clear that Vince Young was not the answer as Michael Vick’s primary backup...
Donovan McNabb believes he’s the most unfairly criticized quarterback in NFL history.
Everyone else believes he’s losing his mind.
In fact, I wish I could go back in time and swallow my swig of water before I saw the news.
The former Eagles, Vikings and Redskins quarterback appeared on ESPN First Take on Friday (just as he did on Thursday when he questioned whether Robert Griffin...
Is Andy Reid ready to step down over a disagreement with the Eagles?
Eagles coach Andy Reid, who last week shot down an L.A. Times report that his personnel leadership was in dispute, says he 'goofed' on staffing his defense. Specifically, the linebacker and safety positions, points of weakness in the early going of 2011. "We had young guys there, and so I knew that going in," Reid said Wednesday at the NFL owners meetings. "...

star quarterback Robert Griffin III's success in Washington.

Oh, Donovan. Why do you keep doing this?
It’s gotten to the point that every time I see Donovan McNabb’s name in a headline, I cringe. First, he urged Peyton Manning not to go to the Redskins (on second thought, I won’t hold that one against him). Now, McNabb has taken to the airwaves (you can watch it here) to unleash his most pointed attack on the Washington...

Ah, the news cycle. It can’t be controlled or predicted, but things seem to absolutely kick up when my real world time is most limited.
I will survive.
A lot is happening in Eagles news, and hopefully I will have more time to reflect, comment and dissect this weekend. But until then, a rundown of the news.
