The team announced that the former All-Pro quarterback will officially retire as an Eagle tomorrow at a press conference set for 10 am. Team owner Jeffrey Lurie will be at the press conference alongside McNabb.
McNabb, 36, played 11 seasons for the Eagles leading them to a 91-62-1 record that also includes nine playoff wins. He threw for 32,873 yards with 216 touchdowns and exactly 100 interceptions while completing 59% of his passes. His 32,873 yards, 216 touchdowns, 2,801 completions, and 4,746 attempts are all franchise records while his 3,469 rushing yards are sixth-best in NFL history for a quarterback.
McNabb was, and for the most part still is, a lightning rod for criticism during his time in Philadelphia. He took the brunt of the frustration from fans who have yet to see a Super Bowl victory. Most people overlook the fact that he is only one of two quarterbacks to ever led the franchise to a Super Bowl birth. This is an honor that McNabb has certainly earned and it shouldn't be much longer that his No. 5 jersey will be hanging from the rafters.
