ALL EYES ON MCNABB
The Eagles reported for a team meeting on Friday to begin their mini-camp that will last through Monday and most of the interest will center on Donovan McNabb.
General manager Tom Heckert said that McNabb, who missed the last seven games with a sports hernia is ready to go.
With all the talk about regaining the locker room, McNabb must also regain his form after throwing nine interceptions last year, one more than he had the previous season. And Saturday will be the first time that McNabb speaks to the media, which should be even more interesting than his activity on the field.
During the Super Bowl, McNabb made some out of character comments about Terrell Owens and will likely be grilled by an expected large media gathering on Saturday.
It's only May and only a mini-camp, but McNabb has to start winning back teammates and followers. That is why his first time on the field and at the podium later Saturday afternoon will go a long way in shaping the direction of a team that is coming off a 6-10 record in arguably the deepest division in the NFL.
