The Donovan We All Remember

At some point in the second half of today's Eagles-Redskins game, when Donovan McNabb threw an incompletion that hit the ground, one of my Eagle-fan Facebook friends posted "There's the McNabb we all know!"

"Which one," I wrote back, "the one who's winning?"

And that's what happened Sunday- McNabb came back into the Linc with Washington and beat the Eagles. Sure, Donovan didn't have a great second half, and the 'Skins ran the ball a hell of a lot more than the Eagles ever did, but Donovan got a measure of revenge, as both teams are now 2-2.

Not to mention, after a week of huge hype, Michael Vick went out with a ribs/collarbone injury that may knock him out for weeks, while Kevin Kolb looked atrocious once again, putting together an even worse crunch time drive than Donovan ever did.

At least Donovan was cheered as he was introduced before the game, showing once again that the sports radio idiots represent a small, small percentage of the Eagles fanbase.
