Donovan McNabb To Philly Fans How You Like Me

Donovan McNabb gets the last laugh with Philadelphia Eagles, sort of. Remember how the fans were happy to see him go, even though he had led the team to two NFC championships? Bet they would take those days now.“Making it to the NFC Championship is not easy, and I think they’re starting to see that right now, that getting to the playoffs and going to the NFC Championship consistently, it’s just not that easy,” McNabb said to ESPN “There are teams right now who have winning records, like the Atlanta Falcons. They’ve done it for so many years, and they get to the playoffs and all of a sudden they’re one-and-done.”The Eagles have struggled this season and have been eliminated from the playoffs, with Michael Vick and Nick Foles not providing the leadership at quarterback or on-field performance to elevate the team. For all his faults, McNabb won.He and Andy Reid at coach won, and now it looks like the fans have turned on Reid, too. McNabb said it is “unfortunate” that the focus has been on the Eagles’ struggles of the past few seasons — 12-19  in the last two seasons when so much was expected.“You look at everything (Reid has) been able to accomplish, I think it outweighs what you’ve seen the last two years,” McNabb said.McNabb led the Eagles to four NFC Championship Game appearances and Super Bowl XXXIX, where Philadelphia fell to the New England Patriots. But McNabb was waved goodbye without reservation among fans in 2012, when he was traded to the Washington Redskins.“It wasn’t about how much we were going to win, it was about how much we were going to win by,” McNabb said about his time with Reid. The Eagles are 130-92-1 and 10-9 in the playoffs during Reid’s 14 seasons with the franchise.“People want to make it look like you have nothing to show for it. Well, we have a lot to show for it,” he said. read more

History unbound

first_imgHistorians and researchers should help the government in its efforts to publicise the country’s antiquities through the cyber world, even as the government wants artefacts to returned to their sites to add to their contextual significance. These were the views of Culture Secretary Ravindra Singh said when he inaugurated the 23rd Indian Art History Congress (IAHC) at the National Museum (NM) in the capital, on 11 November. The IANH will focus on facilitating scholarly exchange about India’s diverse artistic forms from ancient to modern times.
