CHRISTINE Flowers' recent op-ed was better than any column I've ever read about Donovan McNabb. She absolutely nailed it.
McNabb is probably the most intelligent athlete to pass through Philly in the last 50 years. But he was never meant to be a West Coast offense quarterback, an offense designed for Joe Montana. McNabb was a totally different brand of QB - a runner and a gunner.
As Donovan got away from what he was meant to be, he started a gradual decline from being in tip-top shape. That's why he was throwing up in huddles and on his linemen.
