Bill Conlin’s piece for today’s Daily News is the most worthless article on Donovan’s future I’ve ever read:
I asked myself how other Philadelphia professional sports icons and Hall of Famers handled age 34 and the unofficial start of athletic middle age.
Will someone please explain to Bill that the careers of Mike Schmidt, Wilt Chamberlain, Steve Carlton, Dr. J, and others tell us absolutely nothing about McNabb?
Based on the evidence provided by some of the town’s brightest stars, I wouldn’t worry about The Don’s age. Not yet. Only where he’ll be celebrating that 34th birthday.
Its frustrating to think that McNabb’s age and performance is such an important topic (and one which we will probe here on plenty of occasions), yet someone who actually gets paid to write on the subject mailed it in.
