Donovan McNabb apologized to the fans of Philadelphia for not winning a Super Bowl title for them.
"I look back - the things that I set out that I wanted to accomplish and bring back to Philadelphia I wasn't able to, and I apologize more than anything to the people of Philadelphia, not bringing that Super Bowl to them," McNabb told Philadelphia radio station 97.5 The Fanatic.
McNabb was traded to division rival Washington last month after 11 seasons with the Eagles, who drafted him third overall in 1999.
He led the Eagles to five appearances in the NFC championship game and a spot in the Super Bowl after the 2004 season. The Eagles lost that game 24-21 to New England.
McNabb hopes he can win a Super Bowl under new Redskins coach Mike Shanahan, who won two titles in Denver with a quarterback of similar age, John Elway.
"I'm turning 34 this year," McNabb said last month. "And he finished John's career with two Super Bowls. Hopefully I can continue to follow behind that."
