McNabb facing familiar foe
For the first 11 years of his career, quarterback Donovan McNabb led the Philadelphia Eagles against the New York Giants in very intense NFC East battles.
McNabb will guide Washington against their divisional rival on Sunday at New Meadowlands Stadium, and the sight of McNabb in a Redskins jersey will be different for the Giants. "We're used to seeing Donovan in one color jersey," Giants Coach Tom Coughlin said. "We are going to see him this week in a different one."
McNabb has struggled in his first season with the Redskins, but he has been effective against the Giants throughout his career.
"He has a tremendous arm and can throw the ball about as far as he has to throw it," Coughlin said. "He's also pulled it down and ran against us."
Giants quarterback Eli Manning has a lot of respect for McNabb.
"We have had some great matchups," Manning said. "I have a lot of respect for Donovan - just the way he competes and the way he handles his business. Everything he has ever been through, he has done it with a smile.
"He is a great role model for a young quarterback coming into this league and watching how he dealt with his first years. I love his competitiveness and I am looking forward to having another matchup."
