McNabb: ‘Love Wentz’ But Just One Win

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Carson Wentz had a strong 2017 debut for the Eagles, throwing for 307 yards and two touchdowns in a 30-17 divisional road win.

Naturally, the city is excited — as they should be. Leave it to former Eagles QB Donovan McNabb to curb our enthusiasm.

“I do have love for Carson Wentz,” McNabb told Stephen A. Smith on ESPN’s First Take. “So for all of you out there thinking I’m hating on Carson Wentz, pump your brakes a little bit.”

Here comes the but. Never listen to anything before the but. 

“But did we not see this the first four games last year when they came out 4-0 and everyone jumped on the Wentzylvania bandwagon heading into the Detroit game. And then things went wrong? Let’s just relax,” he continued. “Let’s not let that happen again. I think they are a much better team. They have some veterans that have been effective, but I need to see them get more involved in the offense.”

You knew Angelo Cataldi — Wentz’s biggest fan — wasn’t going to let McNabb get away with this.

Cataldi posted this question on Tuesday’s 94WIP Morning Show and 90-percent of fans voted that Wentz is more likable than McNabb.

McNabb is the Eagles all-time leading passer with 32,873 yards, 216 touchdowns, and 100 interceptions compiling a record of 92-49-1. Wentz just eclipsed the 4,000 yard passing mark for his career on Sunday.

He has a long way to go to surpass number five.

  1. I absolutely detest Donovan McNabb. He thinks we are dumb, huh? I think what makes it even more detestable is that he suffers from believing he is always the smartest person in the room, when it is actually the exact opposite. The city of Philadelphia saw right thru you and now the rest of the country does as well when you go on national TV and make an idiot of yourself. You were an above average QB with a completely unappealing personality and I would honestly hope I never heard from or saw you ever again.
