A few nights to sleep on it wasn’t going to change Andy Reid’s feelings about Donovan McNabb.
Reid confirmed Monday in his post-mortem presser that McNabb will be his starting quarterback next year.
“That is my call,” Reid said. “Donovan is a great player. His work over the last 11 years has proven that. I truly believe it’s a team sport and it’s not all about one guy.”
McNabb alluded to a possible contract extension Saturday, but that seems unlikely.
A trade of McNabb would be a shocker because of the two-year contract he signed before last year. When the ink dried on that deal, it felt like McNabb would have two final cracks to win a championship in Philadelphia. One down.
Reid insists that McNabb will get another chance and we believe him.
