NFL News Update: McNabb Retires, Hall of Fame Game

The official start of the preseason is only one week away, and we are ready for some football.  There are some news bits floating around that are worthy of looking at so here is a quick news update for the week.

McNabb Retires as an Eagle

Donovan McNabb has often gotten booed when he takes the field in Philadelphia.  However, there is no question of the huge contribution he made to the Philadelphia Eagles.   That is why when he formally retired as an Eagle he got a huge send off, a send off worth of the franchises best quarterback in history.

Yesterday, McNabb made his retirement speech to the press.  He was also inducted into the team’s hall of fame and had his number retired.  The Eagles had only retired seven numbers up until this point with McNabb’s being number eight.  So it is a huge honor, and he rightly deserves it.

McNabb may have hit a rough patch in his age and the fans would often turn on him in the heat of the moment, but make no mistake that everyone in Philadelphia understand how important McNabb was to the Eagle in his time leading the team.

Pro Football Hall of Fame Game

This Sunday a group of former NFL player will get inducted into the Hall of Fame and the first preseaon game will take place between the Dallas Cowboys and the Miami Dolphins.

Last year, the Dolphins were the most improved teams of the year.  The Cowboys, on the other hand, were one of the most disappointing teams, failing to even make the playoffs despite all their talent.  This game could clear up a lot of the question marks surrounding both these squads.

The game is scheduled to start at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
