PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Two former Eagles made their return to Lincoln Financial Field for tonight’s Eagles game. It’s the fans’ first chance to welcome Andy Reid and Donovan McNabb back to Philadelphia.
“There’s still a lot of love and respect for Andy Reid amongst Eagles fans, but many were reluctant to show it. After all, he coaches the other team now.
“Yeah I do respect Andy Reid, but now we’re playing against him so now we have to go against him,” said an Eagles fan.
As for Donovan McNabb, the consensus seems to be that he deserves to have his number retired.
“Absolutely. I think, you look at his stats, what he’s done on the field. He’s done his time, he’s paid his respects, and he’s put up some great numbers,” said a fan.
