The relationship between McNabb and Eagles fans was uneasy from the beginning, when a group of fans clamoring for running back Ricky Williams traveled to New York to boo the selection of McNabb in the 1999 NFL draft.

There was nothing but cheering when McNabb walked out of the tunnel and onto the field where he celebrated an NFC championship and completed a fourth-and-26 pass to help win a playoff game.
