Given the recent news regarding the Philadelphia Eagles’ decision to retire Brian Dawkins’ jersey, Ike Reese of 94 WIP made a statement on Twitter the other day that I thought would be a good subject of debate. First, here is Reese’s statement: I wasn’t joking, I think McNabb’s #5 should be retired by the Eagles eventually.  Let’s wait awhile though! Time heals all wounds. Photo: fingerfood.typepad.com Donovan McNabb has yet to retire from the NFL, though he appears to be considering it.  Once he does, do you think the Eagles will do the same with him as they did with Brian Dawkins? Should they?  Is McNabb “jersey retirement” worthy? Interesting question, to say the least. The Eagles now have a total of eight jersey numbers retired, they are: 92 – Reggie White 99 – Jerome Brown 70 – Al Wistert 60 – Chuck Bednarik 44 – Pete Retzlaff 40 – Tom Brookshier 15 – Steve Van Buren 20 – Brian Dawkins My first thought is that no, McNabb will not be given the same honor as those eight
