NFL.com is doing a tournament bracket of their own and it is to decide who is the greatest quarterback ever. Like the NCAA tournament, they are down to the Final Four and there is a very familiar face making an appearance - Donovan McNabb!
McNabb is in the running for the greatest quarterback ever along with Johnny Unitas, Joe Montana and Tom Brady. McNabb is slated to face off against Unitas for a spot in the final showdown.
Can someone explain to me how this happens? I know it is "generational" but really? McNabb beat everyone to earn a spot in the Final Four? I just don't understand it (note: I haven't been following the tournament. In fact, I just found out about this tournament this morning).
The 37-year-old McNabb 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.
