NFL: Eagles coach Reid says McNabb will be back next year
PHILADELPHIA — Eagles coach Andy Reid says Donovan McNabb will be the team’s quarterback next season.
McNabb’s status was questioned because he has one year left on his contract and he’s failed to lead Philadelphia to a Super Bowl victory in 11 seasons.
“That’s my call,” Reid said Monday when asked who will make the decision to bring McNabb back. “I think he’s a great player. His work over the last 11 years has proven that. I truly believe it’s a team sport; it’s not one guy.”
McNabb had one of his finest seasons, but struggled badly in consecutive losses to Dallas. The Cowboys beat the Eagles 34-14 Saturday night in an NFC wild-card playoff game.
After the loss, McNabb said he wanted to return to Philadelphia.
