AI and it isn't even close...

The Donovan hate runs so deep in Philly some times it is sickening.

and its true. I dont understand why people dont like McNabb more. He has tried to be everything the fans say they want in a player and yet he has people almost hoping he fails so they can get rid of him

I do. Philly is a tough blue collar town that appreciates blue collar mentality in their athletes. Mcnabb is a great player undoubtedly but it's way deeper than that. The fans have a very personal intimate relationship with their sports which is why they are such a passionate group and also what enables them to want to really connect with their athletes on a deeper level. Most Philly fans feel nothing in common with Donovan. He's relaxed, he smiles when he makes bad throws, he isn't a vocal leader, he doesn't possess a lot of intensity, etc.

You take a player like B Dawk who plays with a very high level of intensity, who is willing to fight to the very end, and is extremely passionate and vocal about his love for the city and fans and he has been immortalized in this city forever. Donovan and Philly just don't mix never have never will. He'll always be underappreciated.

Passionate group, but a little over the top some of the time....

I'm still hoping AI goes back to the Sixers to finish his career. Just take less money to finish it up where he's loved and not criticized for everything he does. Plus I honestly think a team of him, Iggy, Miller, Brand and Dalembert would be pretty decent in the East.

I don't want him back bro! He burnt serious bridges in the organization too. Missing practice, being late or not showing for team functions (including charities work, etc), never displayed a team first attitude. To top all of he impeded the development of young players and although they wouldn't go on record but none of the players enjoyed playing with him. The team has been so much better since he left.

I kinda want him back.... But I do agree. Now that the team has gotten beyond the issues he brought to the team, its unrealistic to bring him back with the same group...

they dont seem totally able to carry the team without him (the way he did often by himself), but they can learn that... and he makes too much doe.

I'd just like to see it for emotional reasons i guess. Just as something like the circle being completed. Like how Pippen retired a Bull when all was said and done. Nobody expected him to come back and lead them anywhere but it just seems right for him to retire with the team that's going to retire his jersey, who he'll enter the hall of fame as a member of, etc. So he can get the ovation he deserves in his final game ever

I hear Kobe says he could suit up at WR for the Eagles if he wanted to right now,...


Now I hate Kobe as much as any self respecting Philadelphian, but I'd forget all that and welcome him here if he was serious.....

he'd be a beast for a few years
