Redskins Vs Eagles: Donovan McNabb Cheered In Warmups

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.
