Everyone knows the story here, it's Donovan McNabb's triumph return to the place he called home for a decade and the United States' first national capital, Philadelphia, PA.
Is it fitting that the last game Vick played in prior to his dog fighting saga was against McNabb and the Philadelphia Eagles and his first home start since then will be in Philadelphia against McNabb who is starting his first game at Lincoln Financial in a different uniform?
It's a lot to swallow but there are no statistics that can magnify the importance of this game for McNabb, Vick and Eagles head coach Andy Reid. If McNabb wins, Philly hates Reid for a week or two because he made the wrong decision, if Vick and Reid win, Vick is still the darling in the cheese steak capital of the world and Reid looks like a genius.
The outcome of this game is only a divisional pairing and the second meeting in Washington will likely mean more as far as the standings are concerned but in this era of media speculation and over-exaggeration, this game means a hell of a lot more on paper then it really should in reality. Still even with that fact looming over our heads, you have to be excited by the match-up.
There is one storyline after the other in this game and I'm sure FOX is chomping at the bit to see their ratings go through the roof.
