McNabb: 'This is a down day'

Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb expressed his thoughts on a smart-phone video this afternoon:

McNabbMcNabb"A great player, a great leader and a hard worker," McNabb said. "[I hope] for nothing but good things for him for the rest of his life. I’ve talked to him on many occasions and he can continue to play this game and play it at a high level, so good luck to Brian. I know this is a down day for all of us because he is a great friend of mine, but I know things will work out for him."

When the Eagles released linebacker Jeremiah Trotter a few years ago, McNabb used the occasion to grouse about management. But given his present contract situation, I don't think McNabb will go that route this time around. And by the way, it's hard for me to imagine LaDainian Tomlinson and Westbrook in different uniforms. It's almost like seeing Emmitt Smith in a Cardinals jersey.
