PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Earlier this week, former Philadelphia Eagle’s quarterback Donovan McNabb announced he will retire as an Eagle this fall. Most likely this will happen when his former coach, Andy Reid, comes to town with his new team, the Kansas City Chiefs, in September.

The fact that he wants to retire as an Eagle is fine, despite all the things he said about the fans once he left the city of brotherly love.

Should they retire his number?

I’m fine with that. He is the birds all-time leader in passing yards, touchdown passes and games played at the quarterback position.

Should he be in the Hall of Fame?

He thinks so. Although he was a good quarterback, I never felt he was great. To me, that is what the Hall of Fame is all about, being the best of the best, and that is not #5.
