As expected, the Minnesota Vikings have landed Donovan McNabb in a trade, which will allow their team not only to continue to contend for a Super Bowl, but also supplying the team with a veteran quarterback to mentor the young Chris Ponder.
Donovan McNabb played for 11 seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, and had a very forgettable one in Washington. Throughout his long and mostly incredibly successful career, McNabb led the Eagles to consistent postseason victories, although he failed to deliver a Super Bowl victory.
While McNabb’s career has not yet reached an end and he may very well still attain that elusive title with the Vikings, it is clear that McNabb is aging and his playing days are very numbered at this point.
While a Super Bowl victory would certainly guarantee McNabb a spot in Canton, without a title it is not so clear if he will join the hallowed few. Only time will tell if McNabb ultimately makes it into the Hall of Fame.
However, here are five reasons why he would or would not go down as one of the greatest to play the game at this point in his career.
