Thank You, Eagles!

Joe Theismann: Redskins fans will support Donovan McNabb much better than Eagles fans

Former Washington QB Joe Theismann suggested Monday that Donovan McNabb will find an unusual element in the stadium when he dons the Redskins’ uniform in September: A supportive fan base.

Theismann, in comments on Sirius Mad Dog Radio, criticized fans in Philadelphia for what he said was poor treatment of McNabb “from the day he got drafted.”

Of McNabb’s treatment from Eagles fans, Theismann said:

“… nothing seemed to be good enough. You go to five NFC championship games, you go to a Super Bowl (in) large part because of his ability to play the position but yet nobody wanted to give him any kind of credit.”

In Washington, Theismann said McNabb will greet a fan base that welcomes and embraces him (although they once burned his Eagles uniform outside FedEx Field):

“(McNabb) will find that Opening Day in Washington, when he steps on that football field in front of those 89-90,000 fans, it’ll be like nothing he’s ever felt. It’ll be a warmth that he hasn’t been able to find in Philadelphia.”
