Today Donovan McNabb announced he wants to focus on the future and welcome his new teammates.

"I want to congratulate all the newcomers and let them know that I am excited to be working with them and taking the first step towards moving forward and getting something accomplished.”

“I was inspired by the way the Phillies won the World Series and how they were treated by the city and their fans and I want to experience that myself in the worst way.”

After discussing the possibility of a trade during this off-season, the Eagles have finally given McNabb some help and improved the team.

Last week they upgraded the offensive line with the acquisition of Jason Peters. They had also added free agent right tackle Stacy Andrews.

The Eagles signed safeties Rashad Baker and Sean Jones to improve the secondary.

During this weekend's NFL draft they were able to add wide receiver Jeremy Maclin and running back LeSean McCoy, giving McNabb more firepower to work with.

The coming season may very well turn out to be a make-or-break season for McNabb. After it's all over he will likely either get a contract extension or be moved.

After all these years, there isn't any middle ground anymore.
