Donovan returns to Philly for standing ovation, leads Redskins to lead over Eagles

Sunday Donovan McNabb led the Washington Redskins to a 17-12 victory over his former teammates the Philadelphia Eagles.

When McNabb’s name was announced he received a standing ovation.

“You realize you spent 11 years here and I knew it was coming,” McNabb said of the greeting, which he said made him happy.

“I didn’t expect them to cheer the whole game, that wouldn’t be right. I put on the uniform and I knew I was an opponent today.”

McNabb raised his right arm to salute the folks in the stands and, soon after, embraced his successor, Michael Vick, near the 40-yard line. McNabb supported the Eagles’ signing of Vick as his backup a year ago. (Black America Web)
