Donovan McNabb was at Saturday's Villanova-Syracuse game and he was asked about the criticism aimed at him by former teammates.
Ike Reese, Jeremiah Trotter and Hugh Douglas have been on 610-WIP and taken their turns tearing into McNabb's comments about the NFC Championship game. They all accused McNabb of pointing the finger of blame at the defense after the NFC Championship game.
McNabb had emphasized the fact that the Eagles had a 25-24 lead in the fourth quarter. Many took this to mean that it was the Eagles defense that couldn't hold the lead.
McNabb was approached about the controversy at the game yesterday.
"As long as the guys in the locker room understand what I was saying, and they do, that's all that matters", McNabb said.
"They know (referring to his current teammates), I don't throw people under the bus, never did and never will. They understand exactly what I'm saying."
"Guys know it doesn't matter at this particular point. What was said was said, they know exactly what I was saying. We move on."
Reporter: Are you happy in Philadelphia? "I am.
Reporter: You want to stay here in Philadelphia. Forever? That sounds great I want to retire here if that's what you're saying.
“It's unfortunate you know that they would say that, but you know everybody has their own judgment, I guess,” McNabb told Comcast Sportsnet . “The only people I truly care about at this particular point are the people that are putting on the uniform, who’s been in the locker room, who’s been through the ups and downs. That’s all that matters to me. Anyone else I don’t care about."
McNabb was also asked about what would be on the agenda for his upcoming meeting with the Eagles front office.
“A lot,” he said. “Conversations that we have stay indoors from my end. We’ll communicate, get some things ironed out, ask some questions, get some answers and we’ll go from there.”
That "from my end" comment is because last year some of the details of their conversations became public.
