Although the Eagles' most controversial player was only inserted for six plays during last night's preseason contest, is animosity developing on the part of it's franchise quarterback?

Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer covered the post-game interviews, and when Donovan McNabb was asked if the "WildVick" offense disrupted the rhythm of the regular offense, and if he thought the team needed to play a more fundamental strategy, he responded,

"Absolutely, Absolutely. I did. In that situation, it's needed. I know what we were trying to do [with Vick] and we were able to get that done. And I thought it was time for us to kind of get our offense going."

So will McNabb be equally unhappy during the regular season when he is spelled by No. 7?

That question remains, but there are already seeds of unrest in the fanbase. According to a game recap from Clifton Brown of The Sporting News, there was already a "We want Vick" chant during Thursday's game.
