News Flash: The Donovan McNabb era --11 years of winning football and controversy--came to an end this past Easter Sunday. Yet he still remains a lightning rod for criticism and debate in Philly.
I admit to being an unabashed fan, although I won't kill the Eagles for trading him and ushering in the Kevin Kolb era. Hey, maybe Kolb will even lead them to their first-ever Lombardi Trophy.
My goal for this slide show is to take on 10 common McNabb myths, or pieces of conventional wisdom held by many, and examine them. I vehemently disagree with some and give the slightest credence to others, and, well, you'll see.
I find that a lot of McNabb fans make the mistake of getting on the defensive when it comes to Donovan, as it somehow became either very difficult, or very unpopular, for fans in this town to embrace him after awhile. As a lifelong Eagles fan, this has always mystified and disturbed me. That's also why I did not title this "Defending Donovan."
Was McNabb guilty of "never hitting a receiver in stride" and "never winning a big game?"
Conversely, was he the "greatest QB in franchise history" despite having "nobody to throw to?"
