While it remains to be seen how 70,000 Eagles fans will receive McNabb when he's officially introduced... but the fans in the seats for the warmups did give McNabb a cheer.
Plus, he got a hug from Philadelphia mayor Michael Nutter.
And so the city's top pol -- who sat on City Council for much of McNabb's run as the city's top jock -- made sure that McNabb's return would, at least, begin with a warm and grateful reception. "The guy gave it his all, 11 years," the mayor told the Daily News. "I did it out of respect." Nutter wore an Eagles cap.
