Donovan Mcnabb’s Profession & Career
The “Eagles” selected Donovan Mcnabb in the first round of the 1999 NFL Draft. He was the second of five quarterbacks recruited. On November 14, 1999, he made his professional debut against “Washington” on his home ground. He threw 21 passes for 60 yards and led his team to a 35-28 victory. After this victory, he became the third “Eagles” quarterback rookie to win his first NFL start, after Mike Boryla and Ty Detmer. He was also the second rookie among the “Eagles” to start as quarterback, following Brad Goebel.
After Daunte Culpepper, Jeff Garcia, and Kurt Warner, Donovan was chosen as the first alternate for the NFC Pro Bowl squad in 2000. When Warner was forced to leave the game due to an injury, Donovan stepped in and performed admirably. He fractured his right ankle in a game against the “Arizona Cardinals” in the 11th week of the 2002 season. He guided his squad to the NFC championship in 2003.
Donovan’s injuries in 2005-07 were very upsetting for him. On October 26, 2009, he guided his squad to another victory over the “Washington Redskins.” Donovan was acquired by the “Washington Redskins” on April 4, 2010, and the “Minnesota Vikings” on July 27, 2011. Donovan announced his retirement from football on July 29, 2013.
