Donovan McNabb: “Nobody Has Been Criticized As Much As I Have”

Friday March 30th, 2012

Former Vikings, Redskins and Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb already raised some eyebrows this week when he said that Robert Griffin III would not fit with Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan’s offense. On Friday, he drew some more attention by saying that he was the most criticized quarterback in history, according to Pro Football Talk.

The discussion began by ESPN’s Skip Bayless said Tim Tebow is “the most unfairly, over-criticized quarterback in the history of this league,” according to Pro Football Talk.

McNabb responded by saying, “Negative – I am. I am. Nobody has been criticized as much as I have,” according to Pro Football Talk. McNabb has faced plenty of criticism in his 13-year career, from when he was booed on draft day to his tumultuous season in Washington. The 35-year-old quarterback, however, has also been named to six Pro Bowls and was named NFL Offensive Player of the Year in 2004.
