McNabb's advice: 'Don't look past this game'
For young players in the Super Bowl, Donovan McNabb wants them to realize how hard it is to get there.
Eric Donovan McNabb and I just wanna ask about your Super Bowl experience Super Bowl 39 Jacksonville I know it didn't go. Win loss the way you wanted to what was the experience like the experience without spared him. You know week you try to prepare ourselves leading up two weeks before the gave up. -- what to expect in the -- playing -- And maybe of these games have they given us an opportunity to be prepared -- it was -- -- -- a lot of hoopla a lot of friends and family that really want to reach out so you spent some time. Well always go back to while we're here we're here at the plate footballer with this group -- a good football -- it once we got here was more. More -- less of where do we go sit out -- beat because he gets out of the added -- to the hotel but. You know it's Jacksonville's a look at their routes and rewarded out here in New Orleans Jacksonville was just -- recovering from the -- David and so we were coveted if you know it was a great experience overall for as we enjoyed it at your -- Hidalgo was what we wanted but we still -- excited leader. They're always distractions of some kind -- whether it's the streets or you're walking around you point out Jacksonville different the new -- -- you're having fun for the fans are I don't know around it's right now as well you should. But there are other distractions for the above Baltimore Ravens it was ray Lewis and for the 49ers there was a Chris -- situation did you guys have any internal. Yeah we do know that we have a pretty good so. Bill -- talking about the defense of bags that are doing the Patriots side he did note they words. You know went out once they do the dirty blared out Robbie Harris how did you guys handle internally we have -- are we totally you know -- just to settle. They're both big guys who just comes out to develop Freddie just shut up you know I think. -- a situation where we have more than enough pressure on our shoulders -- why you have ignored it headed it's more or less of just. Understating -- -- every few bullets in his day. Not worried about anything else that answer the other questions you know we can focus on our job well we -- of those questions. Plus there was this there was a lot of -- well Bravo but the overall pick -- was a lot bonds memorabilia I was talking go back to waive it. Did know it was one it's always or -- they're wadded -- rather be -- -- And that's the issue is that you get there and while you didn't win the game. Do you think because you're young player we're gonna be back here I -- I get my dance again that's. Lol yeah events event whether that if I could tell you give these guys that are play of the day. -- no look passes to take advantage of this opportunity. Did you just do whatever it is good this offensive -- a -- protect the football whatever it may be because there's hardly get back to do with this amount of the Providence -- -- -- -- There once Super Bowl I would have loved -- give back through -- you -- the defensive reserves. To get back to the Super Bowl it's a tough deal when you get so close that never make Q do you look back wanted to say you know what I have my one shot. And never got to forgive them. You were part of a new breed of quarterback at the time when you came into the game you could throw you could run but you were big enough to take on defenders pry Culpepper was the same type of quarterback. What were you guys expected to do because you were they quote unquote new breed. Well you know we were expected to go out there it'd be the base of friends out there and -- -- the course of the game and -- also to Brussels on our soldiers. To be that guy to make things happen when things aren't there utilize alleged in your ability. And that's what we did what would you get a motor. You have the bit sore at developments of a quarterback that is -- big day today. This we have the athletic ability to utilize our legs it's pretty -- blades. But when you're passive out of the pocket you've got to be very effective pitcher TV grit of this of the -- the saves. They have scored ourselves. What do you see the new -- now the RG -- the cam Newton's and the guy we see on Sunday coming -- predict this is a different type of quarterback what do you see from these. You know what -- the -- several quarterbacks that we were it is something that I think we're overlooking the fact because they see at the -- too busy. Guys give out of the pocket on a -- We didn't have a massive grid. This looks bad that I think people who move would give to fade away broke through the next three years that I believe why do well we'll see. Quarterback safety board is this supposed to. You're gonna see do you have the love back to your bubble quarterbacks because they have the football divisions the last say we ability had a good so this diversity. Quarterback safety board's size of -- supposed to brilliance of defense and that's the one area. Wearing an ABC ball the quarterback is far more exposed than in any other time absolutely absolutely we do run. Rebounds and there's two things again that doesn't happen you have a follow for UT -- the defense a bit. -- that really weren't brother Dirk here's how -- a good quarterback in my -- -- safety as the 54 plus because -- a subdural. You were the greatest quarterback in the history of the Philadelphia Eagles take a look at the numbers there is no disputing that fact. But are you appreciate it today and what they call the city of brotherly love. Ohio Ohio -- if I played a lot of stars from the outside people look at and say you know what. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- What would you leave it'd they realize what you were able to accomplish and they appreciate you more so. I love -- Philadelphia I've never. That video of the of the wounds all the criticism bothered me up focus on -- job to have Bard then I just violent I had a good time while I was there for eleven years. They're going back to Philadelphia -- -- still do some work you'll see defense. There'd be out there every of part of it. I'll love it even more -- How do you see the game coming up. On Sundays Super Bowl 4740 niners Ravens who's playing the best football. You know what about the rest football right now figured afforded out of the way they're able to come back you look at that Atlanta game is being down is still keep their poise confidence. They're leading their team to a victory the way -- defense has played. Lately gave this says a lot but she did discredit what Baltimore's been able to do so Joseph Flacco. Doing a great job when the pressure getting the ball down field spreading the ball around Ray Rice run with the football but I think it's gonna come down the Gaza the truth is. I think this now favors the San Francisco 49 as -- -- befits their way down hill. Would it be fifths of the line really establishing a tempo flawed clog it up holding giving -- -- -- do you have one more series in -- a quarterback you wanna get out there one more time I got what was series maybe soon would bet they did. Everybody got -- -- Bill Romanowski Lorenzo Neal. There were tied it played sixteen years you know what. Just one more series is all you guys know what I would love that what was -- we want to Thomas who've both started on Friday you know work -- boo boy you'd be a martyr who want to say hey you know what probably one of the greatest quarterbacks in the history of the game the greatest ever Wear the Philadelphia Eagles uniform Donovan McNabb thanks so much for joining -- sun chronicle live thank you.
