[editor's note, by BleedGreen] Promoted from diaries. Brian beat me to this one.
With so many rumors swirling about discontent in the locker-room and QB controversies in the not-to-distant future, I thought this was nice to hear from McNabb:
"My thoughts are about ending my career here," McNabb said. "I'm not really focusing on anything like that. I'm going to be a Philadelphia Eagle my whole career, and I expect that. If anything changes, it's not in my control, but I look forward to ending my career here."
Now, I can't believe he wouldn't want to get away from WIP, and away from some of the scrutiny and negativity that he faces as the QB of the Philadelphia Eagles. (I know he'd face scrutiny in Chicago, but I can't imagine the mindset of their fans or media is quite this negative) He'd once again be looked upon as savior in Chicago, and who wouldn't want to play in their hometown for the team they rooted for as a kid?
Still, even if McNabb is lying for the sake of "saying the right thing", I'm really glad he came out and said this -- if only hopefully to quiet the rumors till the offseason.
In the meantime, maybe the Eagles can trade Feeley to the Bears for a 2nd round pick after the game.... :-)
