It’s Friday and things are still buzzing on Radio Row.
Guard Ruben Brown, a nine-time Pro Bowler, stopped by to offer his opinion on Eagles QB Donovan McNabb.
Brown, who sat out last season due to injury after spending four seasons in Chicago, said he is trying to convince Chicago coach Lovie Smith that McNabb would be a good fit in the Windy City.
“I’d like to see him go to Chicago,” Brown said of McNabb. “I think it’s the perfect fit for him. The Bears are a smidgen away from getting back to the playoffs and getting into the Super Bowl and hopefully winning it. What would be greater than Donovan McNabb winning a Super Bowl with the Chicago Bears, when he’s from Chicago?”
Brown says McNabb, who is still under contract with the Eagles, deserves better than the reception he’s had in his 10 seasons in Philadelphia.
“I think for a guy like that to have to put up with all of the scrutiny that he’s put up with, being in Philadelphia — eventually, you’ve got to say enough is enough,” said Brown.
“For him, I don’t know. I don’t know how he feels. But me, personally looking at it, I’m saying enough’s enough. Give the guy a break. He’s been a very successful quarterback. There’s a bazillion teams out there that would love to have a quarterback like him. With the Eagles not treating him like he should be treated, he should go home. Go to Chicago where they’ll definitely love him.”
