Would the Eagles be interested in signing Donovan McNabb? This question has popped up and immediately should be followed with why?McNabb, believes he has a 80-90% chance of playing this season in the NFL. The short-list of teams, ARIZONA, OAKLAND and GREEN BAY, no Eagles. For that I am grateful!

The Eagles had some good seasons with McNabb under center. I say good, because as we all know we did not win a Super Bowl and that is all that really matters doesn’t it? To bring back McNabb as a reserve would be a distraction. If McNabb actually got into a game would also mean Vick has gotten hurt again and the season would be in jeopardy. If that was the case, Vick getting hurt, we might as well look at Mike Kafka and see now if he is of NFL caliber. We don’t need to roll out an aged but thinner Donovan McNabb.

The Eagles offense is a timing offense that throws a lot of screens and short passes. McNabb who found it difficult not to throw those at the receivers shoelaces when he was in his prime is not a fine wine, age has not made him better. I wish Donovan luck on his search for a job, maybe he could give the AFL a look.
