NFLDonovan McNabb has quickly fallen from an upper-tier NFL quarterback to a man without a job discussing his legacy. Yes, it’s time to start the McNabb Hall of Fame debate. First up in the discussion: Donovan McNabb. “What happens a lot of times is we look at what the list says, so we talk about the five NFC Championship Games, the six Pro Bowls and then we come to the end, ‘Well, he never won the big game,’ ” McNabb told Mark Kriegel of FoxSports.com, via the Philadelphia Daily News. “Well, Peyton never won the big game until he won the Super Bowl. Dan Marino never won the big game. Does that mean his career is a failure? No, not at all… First of all is his numbers. How many times has he led his team to the big game?” McNabb said “The big game still is the NFC Championship Game, the game to lead you there, and most importantly of all, did he make the players around him better? In his time, in his era, was he a top-five, top-10 quarterback in the league?” McNabb said he’d “absolutely” vote for himself to be in the Hall of Fame, which is a comment that will be mocked in Philadelphia. We don’t think it’s that crazy.

I’ve been a McNabb defender for what feels like most of my life. Defended him against critics in those NFC Championship losses (no receivers), against racists after the Rush comments, and even up until the very end in Philly. But I can no longer defend a man who constantly fishes for attention like a teenage girl. It’s as if he can’t find value in himself if other people don’t think he was good. He was good, but not nearly as fucking good as he thinks he was. The man is an egomaniac, and if he really thinks he deserves to be in the same sentence as Dan Marino or Peyton Manning, has little to no grip on reality.  Funny that it took him leaving Philadelphia for the rest of the country to realize the dude is nuts.

Hey, you guys remember when the Eagles traded Donovan at the perfect time? Didn’t Chris Cooley call it “one of the top 10 biggest bonehead trades in the history of the NFL”? Good call, Cooley. That was great.

PS – If McNabb was cooler T.O. would’ve won him a ring and he might’ve actually made the Hall of Fame.
