Donovan McNabb: Bernard Hopkins Calls McNabb out on Career
Hopkins Thinks McNabb Is Not Tough Enough
Boxer Bernard Hopkins does not like Donovan McNabb, and took an opportunity this week to rip McNabb apart for his perceived failings.
Even though the event was in Philadelphia, and McNabb no longer lives or plays there, Hopkins felt like bringing the subject anyway, hinting McNabb was not black enough or tough enough to deal with someone like him.
"Why do you think McNabb felt he was betrayed? Because McNabb is the guy in the house, while everybody else is on the field. He's the one who got the extra coat. The extra servings. 'You're our boy,' " Hopkins said, according to the Daily News, and patted a member of the media on the back to illustrate his point. "He thought he was one of them."
When contacted by the Daily News, McNabb's publicist said the quarterback would not have a comment.
That is pretty heavy stuff, and for Hopkins just to take one cheap shot after another at McNabb almost seemed uncalled for.
Hopkins has a fight in Philadelphia May 21, but taking shots at McNabb now seem out of place. It's not unusual for a blogger like myself to take shots at McNabb when talking about his career, but Hopkins is not a blogger.
McNabb did always seem to get certain benefits of the doubt and protection from the media, despite what McNabb may privately think, and he got much more love in Philadelphia than any other quarterback who was as choke-happy as he was in the playoffs.
His career is winding down, but Hopkins, and bloggers, will get another year or two of cheap shots in, but it will not be at the Eagles or the Redskins expense.
