Donovan's gonna find his way into your living room… whether you like it or not.
No, not that kind of job.
Former Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb could be hired soon, but it wouldn't be a football team doing the hiring.
Via Sports Business Journal's Liz Mullen:
SBJ: Veteran #NFL QB Donovan McNabb has signed with agent Mark Lepselter for broadcast work & is close to agreeing to a network job.
— Liz Mullen (@SBJLizMullen) September 3, 2012
McNabb said earlier this summer on NBC SportsTalk that he had "about three teams that I'm looking at", but no team at any point identified themselves as a team interested in McNabb…
…and we're still waiting.
The Inquirer's Peter Mucha makes an interesting observation that could mean McNabb is headed to the NFL Network.
Indeed, MAXX Sports & Entertainment, founded by Lepselter, not only lists McNabb as a client under "broadcasters" but IDs him as "Analyst – NFL Network."
McNabb does have a background in communications from Syracuse and has appeared multiple times as a guest analyst on assorted television shows. Perhaps his most notable appearance occurred on ESPN's First Take earlier this year. Fast forward to the 3:30 mark for an instant classic.
No word on how much Donovan would talk about himself if he actually does get a television gig.
Kevin Frandsen is the fuckin truth
EZ Beez – You were probably shouting the same thing about John Mayberry Jr. last season. And I guess you missed the huge fielding blunder he made in the ninth Sunday night that bsaically cost them the game.
I like the way he plays and he is swinging a good stick right now but you need to do this for a full season plus some before you can be considered legit.
Alex, I can’t believe I failed to come up with that when making the post, haha.
Thought you were gonna say in a midget football league so at least his passes would appear to be a little more accurate when he hits their feet.
His segment could be called McMartyr’s Musings. He can critique QB play to his own and how much criticism he would have received on the same play.
Joe Theismann ” Back when I played….” zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
csn post game live should hire him
Michael Smith’s celebrity backups comment is so full of win
Dunavan Macnabb was the greatest qb this city ever saw. HOF coming soon.
I don’t think any other team’s all time best qb gets as much universal hate from his home city as McNabb. Maybe Favre in Green Bay.
Meh! Another reason NOT to watch NFL Network.
Funny to hear Philly fans are the most insecure thin skinned, clueless morons on this planet
slow last couple of weeks on cb
So Donavan, what would you do in that situation?
“I’d throw the ball into the dirt”
Somebody should hire McNabb and TO to debate. I’d watch that.
His first segment should be a detailed analysis on the thrill of Nfl overtime games. And then he can break down thmane new OT rules. Just kidding, you man D-Mac!
How long will it take for him to run interviews into the dirt the same way he does a football?
Are there timeouts in TV?
Mcnabb said if he does not get hired means a black on black crime occurred
What? No Jeff Carter posts you homo?
