McNabb led the Eagles to 4 consecutive conference championship games from 2001-2004 including Super Bowl XXXIX in ’04, 5 division titles, and 7 playoff appearances in 10 years. He’s the franchise’s all-time leader in wins, pass completions, pass yards and TD’s; not to mention the 5 Pro Bowl selections.
Despite all he’s accomplished during his time in Philly, McNabb has been hassled by the media and benched by coach Andy Reid in November. Who bench’s the franchise quarterback? Through it all NcNabb has the team back in a familiar spot, the NFC championship. In an unexpected meeting, the Eagles will attempt to make it back to the Super Bowl by defeating the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday afternoon in Arizona.
Regardless of what happens Sunday, McNabb is playing out his last days as an Eagle. The once rock solid relationship that he and Andy Reid shared went out the door with the benching incident and the media will continue to vilify him. McNabb has heightened the expectations of the fans of Philadelphia, and though they don’t recognize it now, they will miss him when he’s gone.
