Welcome to another edition of Opposition Research, where I’ll be taking a look at the first Packers opponent in the 2010 regular season, the Philadelphia Eagles. As a programming note, I tried writing something for last week, but it’s awfully hard to write about a meaningless game. This week, however, IS meaningful, and I must admit…I'm pretty excited. Heck, I started looking for articles back in July. But enough about my sad life…let’s take a look at the first match-up in what looks to be a pretty spectacular season.
Donovan McNabb addressed the Washington media for the first time as the starting quarterback of the Washington Redskins.
"This is a different stage from the norm and what I'm used to," McNabb said. "There are days in life you go through change, you find a light at the end of the tunnel here with a great organization that wants to win and wants to win now. I'm surrounded by a great group of players that are willing to put in the effort to win a Super Bowl.
"For 11 years playing under a future Hall of Fame coach, and now playing under another Hall of Fame coach and the things he has accomplished with great quarterbacks like John Elway, I hope I can continue that."
"I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – victorious."
