At first glance, this looks like it might be the most Donovan McNabb-ish tweet ever.

Here is what the national media are saying about the Eagles at the annual owners’ meetings.

Conor Orr of NFL.com believes, based on Kelly’s comments Wednesday morning, the Eagles will not trade up for a quarterback:

It seems like only yesterday. But it has been nearly 10 years since February 6th, 2005 — the last time the Philadelphia Eagles appeared in the Super Bowl.

That season was a magical one for Eagles fans, with the team winning its first seven games en route to a 13-1 start. Donovan McNabb instantly clicked with new wide receiver Terrell Owens. Safety Brian Dawkins and newly acquired defensive end Jevon Kearse terrorized opposing offenses. Jeremiah Trotter returned from two years in exile — Washington — to reclaim his starting middle-linebacker spot. It was a dream.
