McNabb: 'I don't throw people under the bus'

Hopefully there will come a day soon where we can stop writing about this, but as long as Donovan McNabb and his teammates (current and former) keep talking, we'll continue to recap what they say.

McNabb: 'I don't throw people under the bus'

Hopefully there will come a day soon where we can stop writing about this, but as long as Donovan McNabb and his teammates (current and former) keep talking, we'll continue to recap what they say.

This time McNabb was at the Wachovia Center Saturday for the Villanova-Syracuse game.

Comcast SportsNet caught up with him, and asked McNabb about the perception that he threw the defense under the bus with his comments last week on WIP.

"As long as the guys in the locker room understand what I was saying, and they do, that's all that matters," McNabb said.

"I don't throw people under the bus. I never did, never will, so they understand exactly what I'm saying."

Interviewer Kevin Walsh brought up Jeremiah Trotter's comments last week when the ex-Eagle said McNabb doesn't want to be in Philadelphia. After a big laugh, McNabb said that's not true.

"No, it's not. It's unfortunate that they would say that but everybody has their own judgment I guess," McNabb said. "The only people that I truly care about at this particular point are the people that are putting on the uniform, who's been in the locker room, who's been through the ups and downs. So that's all that matters to me. Anyone else I don't care about."

McNabb reiterated his stance that he wants to stay with the Eagles until he retires.

He was also asked what he learned from watching Ben Roethlisberger and Kurt Warner in the Super Bowl.

"Nothing," McNabb said. "I mean I watched a great Super Bowl. That's all that matters."
