Westbrook: "No question" McNabb will be back

In an uncharacteristically candid interview, Eagles RB Brian Westbrook said he thought there was "no question" that Donovan McNabb will be the starting QB for the Eagles next year.

"I think there is no question in my mind if Donovan will be back. After what he was able to do last year which he had a very good year of course. Everybody measures, a lot of fans measure by Super Bowls. Did you win the Super Bowl and you know? Realistically there is only going to be one team out of thirty-two to win the Super Bowl every year and it is hard to do that. I don’t think that you can measure whether a quarterback can be successful or not whether he was a Super Bowl or not. If you look at this football team with Donovan and without Donovan I think you would be hard-pressed to say that there was better quarterback in the league than Donovan McNabb for Philadelphia Eagles."

Anyone who has watched Westbrook at a press conference or read one his rare quotes to local media knows that the guy just isn't the type to speak at length. This interview was actually done by his former teammate Blaine Bishop. Westbrook also spoke at length about everything he's learned about concussions in the past year.

The interesting thing is that Westbrook himself is hardly assured of a place on the team next year. In fact, if the Eagles did decide to move on from McNabb they may very well do the same with Westbrook and complete the "youth movement" 100%.
