Hey, Donovan McNabb Is an NFL Network Analyst Now

Hey, Donovan McNabb Is an NFL Network Analyst Now

Guess what? Donovan McNabb has opinions. What a jerk. I know, right?

Guess what else? McNabb gets paid to express those opinions by the NFL Network. What a jerk. I know, right?

Yeah, but seeing as it is his job and all, we as Eagles fans or members of the media who cover the team probably don’t need to have a reaction to every time the man complains about Tony Romo’s contract, or Matt Stafford’s contract, or wow this dude has a lot of beef with other quarterbacks who happened to get paid. And we definitely should not care the slightest bit if he wants to have a heart-to-heart with Robert Griffin about life in the national spotlight or on a boat or anywhere else.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not pretending everything McNabb says or Tweets is off limits, and could never be worth picking apart for our own amusement ever again. We still don’t have all 53 teammates’ takes on whether or not the guy puked during the Super Bowl – that topic never gets old!

Heck, we can even debate his Hall-of-Fame credentials until the end of time (Get it? Because he’ll never get in!) and if his number five should be retired or not until it eventually happens two three decades from now.

But we’re all long past interested in most of what Donovan has to say, which funny enough is in part due to the fact that he’s supposed to be commenting on Stafford’s new contract or participate in awkward angles where he meddles in Griffin’s personal life. That’s what media folks do I'm told.

In other words, if you can’t stand hearing what Donovan McNabb has to say, you better bury your head in the sand. He’s not going away – unless somebody decides to change the channel or unfollow.

Eagles Inactives: Rodney McLeod is out against the Giants

Rodney McLeod is inactive on Sunday. That's a big loss for the Eagles, who were hoping McLeod would be able to play against the Giants. 

McLeod entered the weekend listed as questionable with a hamstring injury he suffered against Kansas City last week. Chris Maragos will start in his place. 

The Eagles are without several key members of their secondary against Eli Manning and the Giants. 

Early before the game, McLeod worked out in front of head trainer Chris Peduzzi and then had a pow-wow with Peduzzi, head coach Doug Pederson, Howie Roseman, DBs coach Cory Undlin and others. After the meeting, he continued to work out on his own. 

McLeod missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday before he was a limited participant on Friday. He said he felt better throughout the week as he recovered from the Grade 1 strain. 

The Eagles are down to just Malcolm Jenkins, Maragos and recently claimed Trae Elston at safety. Linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill could also play safety in a pinch. 

Torrey Smith (illness) is playing on Sunday. He was listed as questionable. 

Here are are the Eagles' other inactive players for Sunday: Ronald Darby (ankle), Corey Graham (hamstring), Jaylen Watkins (hamstring), Destiny Vaeao (wrist), Shelton Gibson, Steven Means. 

Graham and Watkins missed practice all week with their own hamstring injuries and were ruled out on Friday. Darby is still out with his dislocated ankle. Newcomer Elston, who was claimed this week, is active. 

All eight offensive linemen are active for the first time this season. Chance Warmack will start in place of Isaac Seumalo at left guard. 

For the Giants, corner Janoris Jenkins is active. That's a big boost for New York. 

Here are their inactives: RB Wayne Gallman, TE Matt LaCosse, QB Davis Webb, LB B.J. Goodson, OL Bobby Hart, LB J.T. Thomas, DE Avery Moss.
