Donovan McNabb and Eagles Fans' Five Stages of Grief

It has taken me quite a bit of time to come to grips with the Donovan McNabb trade. I followed him when he was the star quarterback for Syracuse. Contrary to other Eagles fans, I was thrilled when he was drafted second overall in 1999.

I loved him for the NFC Championship games and Super Bowl XXXIX. I loved that he could do things with his feet that, with the exception of Michael Vick, were virtually unheard of from the quarterback position.

I loved that he was honest and well-spoken. I hated Terrell Owens for his sake.

I stuck with him through the injuries, the interceptions and the jitters.

And then, on April 4, he was lost to me.

What follows is an obituary, a tribute, and a fond farewell. These are the five stages of grief for Eagles fans.
