McNabb apologizes for not delivering Super Bowl title

Maybe DeSean Jackson didn’t say the right things after Donovan McNabb exited Philadelphia, but the former Eagles quarterback is saying all the right things now that he’s settled into his new home.

In his first radio interview in Philadelphia since the Eagles traded him to the NFC East rival Washington Redskins, McNabb told 97.5 The Fanatic multiple times that he was sorry he didn’t help bring a Super Bowl championship to town. He spoke highly of Kevin Kolb, the man who will replace him, and had nothing but warm words for former coach Andy Reid.

Heck, it came off as a love fest for all things Philly, something Joe Fortenbaugh can relish in once he’s recovered from the Flyers Game 7 party he hosted Friday night.

“What happened was I’ve been traded, and that was the decision of the organization,” McNabb said, per Sportsradiointerviews.com. “I’ve always said I wanted to end my career there, but things happen in this game, and I went along with it and ended up in Washington. I’m very excited about the opportunity of playing Washington and really trying to change that program around like we did in Philadelphia.

“I love the fans in Philadelphia, and love the things that they presented to me, of giving me that opportunity to come out of that tunnel, and giving me the opportunity to bring a Super Bowl home. I’m sorry it didn’t happen. I’m more crushed than anything, but again, I’m looking forward to bringing it to D.C. and hopefully bringing a Super Bowl to the D.C. area and displaying my talents which they’ve seen over the last 11 years. I know it’s a different color that I’ll be wearing, but it will be the same player and one that’s a little bit more polished, and one that will hopefully uplift the spirits of the ballclub, and will hopefully change the 4-12 season into something bigger and better.”

McNabb said he believes Kolb will do well and said he remains in touch with Reid.

“Andy and I still have a great relationship, and we’re going to continue to talk throughout this whole process and push each other, and wish for nothing but the best for one another,” he said. “In this situation, it’s one that happened, and again, one that I look back on – the things that I set out wanting to accomplish and bring back to Philadelphia, I wasn’t able to, and I apologize more than anything to the people of Philadelphia for not bringing that Super Bowl to them. But it didn’t happen, and I look forward to trying to achieve that goal here in Washington.”
