I'm really excited about my future with the Washington Redskins. I'm eager to work with Coach [Mike] Shanahan. He's been a very successful coach with a couple of Super Bowl victories on his resume. While it has been my goal to win a Super Bowl in Philadelphia, we came up short. I enjoyed my 11 years, and know we shared a lot more good times than bad.Although he made it to the playoffs multiple times, and reached the Super Bowl in 2004, McNabb was never able to deliver a championship to Philadelphia. Eagles chairman Jeffrey Lurie said:
Donovan McNabb was more than a franchise quarterback for this team. He truly embodied all of the attributes of a great quarterback and of a great person. He has been an excellent representative of this organization and the entire National Football League both on and off the field. I look forward to honoring him as one of the greatest Eagles of all-time and hopefully see him enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton one day.It is yet to be seen if Redskins fans can root for a player who they viciously rooted against for the last decade.
