How will Reid/McNabb Play in Philly?

by Christopher Leomporra

Philadelphia (September 19, 2013)  Well we all know the big return of Andy Reid and Donovan McNabb to Philadelphia is going to happen today.  You can hear the buzz around Philly about Reid’s first appearance here since he was let go from the Eagles.  It’s going to be an emotional comeback for Andy, do you think he has something to prove to the Eagles fans?

Andy still has many close ties to the team he coached for 14 seasons and which included 6 Division titles, 5 NFC Championship games and a Super Bowl appearance.  In Reid’s first year as head coach for the Kansa City Chiefs, he has got off to a good start with a 2-0 record and looks to make it 3-0 today.  The Eagles bring in a 1-1 record under Chip Kelly and are under pressure to deliver a win for the Eagles today.  The current line for the game has the Eagles favored by 3, you can check out the NFL odds here for the lines on the other games this week.

To make the day even more interesting, the Eagles will welcome back Donavan McNabb to retire his number (5) during the halftime ceremonies.  McNabb has a love/hate relationship with the Eagles fans and controversy still follows him over the Super Bowl loss.  McNabb had a record of 92-49-1 as QB for the Eagles.
