In Defense of Donovan

Reuben Frank makes a great point- just because Michael Vick is playing great for the Eagles and Donovan McNabb isn't playing great for Washington, doesn't mean McNabb was never good, or that the McNabb haters are now vindicated:

Before we elevate Vick over McNabb, let him lead the Eagles to the playoffs, which Donovan did seven times. Let him win a playoff game, which McNabb did nine times. Let him guide the Eagles to the NFC title game, which Donovan did five times. Let him take the Eagles to the Super Bowl, which Donovan did once.

Hey, we understand you had McNabb burnout by the end of last year. Most of us did.

But that doesn’t change the fact that for most of his career in Philly, McNabb was a winner.
