About That Donovan McNabb Tweet

No, he's not so silly to wonder about Aaron Hernandez's future in the NFL.

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

Hernandez, if you don’t know, is the former Patriots tight end who this week was convicted of killing a former friend and sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole. The questions of his future — not to mention NFL career — have been pretty definitively resolved.

Only: Take a second glance at the tweet.

It’s two years old! But people are retweeting it today like it’s new — and making McNabb, the former Eagles quarterback, look pretty silly in the process.

He’s trying to have a sense of humor about it.

Check out the responses to that tweet, though, and you realize. People aren’t picking on Donovan McNabb for (not really) sending out a silly tweet this week. They’re picking on him for being Donovan McNabb. And that is probably how it will always be, in Philadelphia at least.
