Welcome to Purple Jesus Diaries' Point/Counterpoint, where we interview two experts on a hotly contested topic of interest for Minnesota Vikings fans. This week, we're tackling the news of former Eagles, Redskins, and Vikings quarterback Donovan McNabb retiring. We asked an Eagles fan and a Vikings fan to make a case in support of their own team as to why McNabb should wear their colors upon retirement ... POINT: Eagles Fan DONOVAN MCNABB SHOULD OOOBVIOUSLY RETIRE AS AN EAGLE BECAUSE HE PLAYED THE BEST YEARS OF HIS LIFE WEARING THE GREEN AND BLACK. THINK ABOUT THIS ... FROM 2000 TO 2004, MCNABB LED THE EAGLES TO FIVE STRAIGHT PLAYOFF APPEARANCES. HE WAS IN HIS SECOND YEAR WHEN THE STREAK STARTED AND WAS A WILY OLD VETERAN OF SIX YEARS BY THE TIME THE EAGLES OBLITERATED ALMOST THE ENTIRE LEAGUE BEFORE LOSING TO THOSE CHEATING PATRIOTS IN THE SUPER BOWL OF THE 2004 SEASON. OF COURSE A PLAYER OF THAT CALIBER SHOULD ONLY EVER BE RECOGNIZED AS A PHILADELPHIA EAGLE, RIGHT WHERE HE BELONGS. HEY, THEY SAY HE USE TO CHOKE AND COULDN'T WIN THE BIG GAME, BUT DID YOU EVER LOOK AT THE TALENT HE HAD TO WORK WITH AROUND HIM? TAKE AWAY BRIAN WESTBROOK AND YOU WERE LEFT WITH FREDDIE "FRED-EX" MITCHELL AND GREG LEWIS. YOU CAN'T WIN ANY GAMES WITH THOSE MORONS! MCNABB WAS, IS, AND ALWAYS WILL BE AN EAGLE AND IT'S A GOD DAMN HONOR TO HAVE HIM RETIRE AS ONE. COUNTERPOINT: Vikings Fan 7-15, 39 yards. Uh, yeah, he can retire an Eagle. Why are we even debating this? [follow]
