Eagles' Donovan McNabb gets last laugh on Rush Limbaugh

Donovan McNabb hands the ball to teammate Brian Westbrook during Sunday's NFC divisional playoff game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the New York Giants. Consider ...

"The media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well. There is little hope invested in [Donovan] McNabb, and he got a lot of credit for the performance of this team that he didn't deserve."

In the five-plus years since Rush Limbaugh uttered those words, the Philadelphia Eagles' quarterback has:

-- Passed for 19,151 yards and thrown 155 touchdowns  in 77 regular season games.
-- Has a 6-3 record in the NFL playoffs.
-- Reached the NFC title game three times.
-- Gone to one Super Bowl.

His teammates must be tired of carrying him all these years. Call it another Rush to judgment.

-- Chris Foster
