Donovan McNabb No Longer Face of Lincoln Financial Field

Donovan McNabb No Longer Face of Lincoln Financial Field

Number 5 was officially traded to the Redskins months ago, and while Kevin Kolb and Donovan McNabb may still be texting buddies, McNabb is no longer the face of the franchise's building to motorists passing the South Philadelphia sporting complex while cruising down I-95.

Remember the above giant McNabb visage that hung on the side of Lincoln Financial Field facing I-95? It has finally been removed. [photo below]

You may not be able to tell exactly from this photo, but the large screen printed images are no longer adorning the home of the Eagles. Incredible photo taken today by @sbaicker.

The giant image of Brian Westbrook has also been removed. Face it, Birds fans, when giant billboard like images of your former favorite player are torn down, it's time to move on. And that's okay with me.

UPDATE: A few commenters are saying the below image is of Brian Mitchell and not Brian Westbrook?

In case you haven’t heard, the Sixers traded big man Nerlens Noel to the Dallas Mavericks before Thursday's deadline (see story).

While Noel's former teammates were saddened by the trade, including Joel Embiid, the rookie big man is already looking forward to squaring off against his friend.

The Sixers face Noel and the Mavericks on March 17 at the Wells Fargo Center.

Those seeds meet in the first round, with the winner facing the No. 2 seed in the second round.

Sammy Mojica hit a 3-pointer with :32 left to get the Dragons within four, 66-62, but Shakir Brown and Joey McLean each hit a pair of free throws to seal the victory.

Kurk Lee and Mojica both scored 18 points off the Dragons' bench.
