McNabb: Birds will be Super next year


Donovan McNabb reiterated that he expects to remain an Eagle this coming season during his annual "SportsCenter" appearance at the Super Bowl.

He also echoed his "finish the job" comments of a few weeks ago, saying the Birds will be playing in the big game next year.

"The Colts, the Saints, it's going to be a great game on Sunday. I'll be watching it back home in Philadelphia and I will be there next year," McNabb said.


The speculation about where Michael Vick might land next season continues.

Yesterday, Jason La Canfora, of the NFL Network, said St. Louis was "definitely" the favorite to land Vick.'s John Clayton said he kept hearing Buffalo was the spot as the Bills switch to more of a hybrid college-pro style offense with new coach Chan Gailey. Clayton, however, did not expect Vick to move via trade rather the Eagles declining to pick up his option.

Meanwhile, McNabb says Vick deserves the chance to start somewhere.

"Michael Vick's done a great job," McNabb said. "He's a great guy, he's worked extremely hard to prepare himself. I think this a perfect opportunity for a ballclub to give him an opportunity to start for them., be their quarterback, and he's going to make a lot of plays for them."

McNabb said last week at the Pro Bowl that he expected Vick to stay, but it seems clear now that Vick is looking to go elsewhere, saying this week that it would be difficult to remain with the Eagles in a similar role.
