The Eagle Has Landed
Donovan McNabb has a very mediocre game against the Packers, throws one good pass and you put him on the cover and talk about his heroics.
In reading Michael Silver's praise of Donovan McNabb, I could not help but wonder if I had watched the same game Silver did. The Eagles won because of some luck and a few poor decisions by the Packers.
When I saw the Jan. 19 cover, I laughed out loud at the pun. Anyone who watched McNabb perform his magic while at Syracuse could have advised Mr. Limbaugh that overrated is one thing that Donovan is not.
Your sidebar on athletes who have excelled with diabetes failed to mention the first known diabetic to play at the highest international level—Bill Talbert. He was ranked in the top 10 in tennis in the U.S. for 13 of 14 years during the 1940s and '50s, was a Davis Cup captain and was director of the U.S. Open for more than 20 years. He was also the original contributing editor for tennis for SPORTS ILLUSTRATED.
