“The things that I set out to accomplish and bring back to Philadelphia, I wasn’t able to, and I apologize, more than anything, to the people of Philadelphia, not bringing a Super Bowl to ’em, but it didn’t happen, and I look forward to trying to achieve that goal here in Washington,” McNabb said to the hosts and their radio audience.
That’s ultimately why he’s not still here with the Birds, but I don’t think he needs to apologize.¬† I don’t have a problem with him apologizing but he doesn’t owe anybody an apology.
All a player owes is his best effort.¬† No one can guarantee anything in sports.¬† Sports is the ultimate reality show because nobody knows what’s going to happen.
Donovan said he wants good things to happen to Kevin Kolb and the Eagles.¬† “I haven’t really been focused on what’s going on in
Philadelphia. My focus is just obviously being in D.C. I know Kevin as a person just works extremely hard and wants to be the best. As a player, he displayed a little bit of that obviously last year. So I wish nothing but the best for him.”
He said he enjoyed playing with DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin, “They’re exciting players, very excited to have an opportunity to play with them last year. Kevin’s stepping into a great situation. I’m happy for him, more importantly that he gets the opportunity being able work with them for three years. … my focus right now is just being in Washington and creating that camaraderie that we need to be successful in the D.C. area.”
McNabb says everything is still cool between he and Eagles coach Andy Reid, “Andy and I still have a great relationship.”
As for how he wants to be remembered, the Redskins quarterback answered that question just like he responded to it at the his Redskins news conference.
“I want to be remembered as a guy who provided excitement, who gave them a chance to win every time he stepped out on the field, one that they had trust, knowing that I would¬†do the right things, and most importantly, one that¬†won¬†ballgames.”
