MIAMI -- We've reached the portion of Super Bowl week in which the daily gymnastics start to become stale.
"He's been there and done it," Reid said of McNabb, per the pool report from Thursday's practice. "He's been in the league, played a long time. It was good hearing from him."
McNabb was one of the key figures of the Eagles from 1999 to 2009, but could never bring home the game's ultimate prize before finishing his career in Washington and Minnesota. Reid outlasted McNabb, but also eventually departed Philadelphia, landing in Kansas City.
Now that Reid is back on the grand stage with a chance to bring home his first Lombardi Trophy as a head coach, he thought it wise to welcome McNabb to share his wisdom. McNabb is no Jerry Rice with a pocket full of rings, but he has an experience to share. We'll see which pre-game speech ends up prevailing.
