Strahan Wonders Why Eagles Fans Don’t Value McNabb More

From: Philadelphia Daily News

Michael Strahan cannot believe how little Philadelphia seems to appreciate the best quarterback in franchise history. “Everybody in Philly – when he’s gone, they’re going to miss him,” Strahan told the Daily News yesterday. “Even if they’d won the Super Bowl, I don’t know if they’d be happy. It’s like he can’t do enough.” Strahan’s perspective this season has come from a studio. He’s an analyst on “Fox NFL Sunday,” in his first year of retirement after helping the Giants win the Super Bowl a year ago.

He admires what he considered to be McNabb’s high-road fortitude in 2008. McNabb had been derided by the press and fans. He even got benched seven games ago. He accepted it all without excessive protests and returned to the form that sent him to five Pro Bowls. “I think he’s handled it about as well as you could handle it. A lot of guys would have complained about, ‘How dare you bench me?’ ” Strahan said. “They’d have tried to get the coach fired. Donovan said, ‘I’ll accept it like a man.’ “
