Eagles training camp is less than 3 weeks away. The regular-season is 9 weeks and 3 days away. It’s Sept. 13 at Carolina at 1 p.m.
By the 10th game, when the Eagles are at the Bears, Eagles fans likely will know where there team stands in the NFC East race and playoffs chase. It likely will be a pivotal game as the Eagles’ playoffs hopes unfold.
It will be a huge game for Chicago native Donovan McNabb.
McNabb will oppose new Bears quarterback Jay Cutler in the Nov. 22 game at Soldier Field. Cutler came to Chicago from the Denver Broncos in the offseason.
And according to the Chicago Tribune, the McNabb family can't wait.
“Both sides are really going to have a great time,” Sam McNabb, Donovan’s father, said to the Tribune. “It’s going to be an opportunity to see two good teams go at it and entertain the people probably more than they anticipated."
Sam McNabb, who lives in the Chicago suburbs with his wife, Wilma, will host his fifth annual football minicamp July 17 and 18 at Mt. Carmel High for high school juniors and seniors, according to the Tribune. Donovan McNabb played at Mt. Carmel before moving onto Syracuse.
"I am a pretty avid Bears fan, up until the time they play the Eagles," Sam McNabb told the Tribune. "That's when I have to switch my allegiance and go with Philadelphia."
