I really cant answer that at this particular point, but if I had to give a take, I would say no. I think what he will do, he wont do what he did last year, that just wont happen. I see him more being a 25 touchdown, maybe 8, maybe 10 interception guy.


Shots fired... The way he worded it, it's really not that much of an insult but given the history of his comments, he still comes off as a bitter old man. He's the media equivalent of Tiki Barber.

He was my 2nd favorite player on the Eagles after Brian Dawkins.

But what he has to say is completely irrelevant to me.

Well in the limited evidence we have he is one of the greatest qbs of all time.


So yeah this makes sense.

It was a very soft opinion with no conviction. At the end of the article, he also lists Foles as the best QB in the division. I thought the better quote was Foles' response. I'm on phone, too much work to go find it.

The funniest part about that is that in his own words Donovan said Foles is a 25 TD and 8-10 INT guy. McNabb only accomplished >25 TDs and <8 INTs once in his career.

I can completely understand him not wanting to crown Foles after a couple of partial seasons but he just comes off as bitter when he talks about other QBs. I guess we just need his definition of a franchise QB.

This was my first thought as well, guess old Donny Mac doesn't consider himself a former franchise QB Laughing.

Don't care about his opinions. It doesn't matter.

McNabb said Foles is better than RG3, Eli Manning, and Tony Romo in the same interview. Also, he has a weird definition of what a franchise QB is.. I'm not overreacting to this.

Foles technically isn't a franchise qb and won't be one until he has a long term contract.

Franchise qbs are the kind of guys you build a team around, eagles didn't even draft any starters this year.
