There's a lot being made of Donovan McNabb's Hall Of Fame case lately. 

About two months ago, McNabb himself said he deserves to be a Hall Of Famer

With the NFL's Hall Of Fame game tomorrow night, Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid was asked about McNabb reaching the Hall. 

“I’m his biggest fan and so I was there, I know he belongs there," Reid said of McNabb. "You talk about the great players in the National Football League, five championship games, a Super Bowl, all those things. Good football player man, great football player and (he) did some things that weren’t being done at that particular time in a lot of areas. I think the world of him.”

Reid, of course, coached McNabb in Philadelphia from 1999-2009 after selecting him with the No. 2 overall pick. The duo never won a Super Bowl, but reached five NFC title games and led the NFC's winningest franchise of the decade. 

In 13 NFL seasons, McNabb threw for 37,276 yards, 234 touchdowns, 117 interceptions, completing 59.0-percent of his passes. McNabb also rushed for over 3,400 yards and 29 scores. McNabb also reached six Pro Bowls, but was just 9-7 in career playoff games, completing 59.1-percent of his passes. McNabb reached the NFC Title game five times, but won just once.
