Donovan McNabb sounds like the old guy in your neighborhood who hates on everything the young people are doing now a days. McNabb is supposed to be returning to Philadelphia to have his jersey retired and hear Eagles fans cheer him.  I’m not sure how that’s supposed to happen if McNabb is always firing shots off. McNabb who arrived here in Philadelphia on Wednesday night, was asked about the Eagles new read option, 100 plays a game offense. Donovan as only he could, called “the offense a fad,” and then complained about the number of plays according to CSN Philly.  “To me, it’s just a fad,” McNabb said. “I enjoyed the West Coast offense, I enjoyed the no-huddle and two-minute drill we ran, but I’m not trying to run 90 plays in a game,” he said Wednesday night after arriving in Philly. “I don’t know if any offensive player would want to run 90 plays in a game. If you’re running 90 plays in a game, that means your defense is pretty awful and you’re running entirely too many plays. … “At Oregon, [Kelly] may have ran 75 plays in a game, but you’re not going to run 85, 90, not in the NFL, and teams and defensive coordinators are a lot better than what you’re going to see in college.” So because it’s not the West Coast, throw a slant every down offense, McNabb is mad.  He continued his rant from there. “I tip my hat off to what they’ve been doing the first two weeks, but there comes a time if you’re up by 14, up by 21, maybe with about 11, 10 minutes to go, it’s time to go into a mode where you’re trying eat up some clock,” McNabb said. “You can’t continue to run that fast-paced offense because it continues to run down not only their defense, but it wears your offense down, too.” Just let it go Donovan.
