Donovan McNabb will play at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday as the enemy for the first time in his career. Still, he said Tuesday that he expects a mostly warm reception from Philadelphia Eagles fans.

McNabb, traded to the Washington Redskins by the Eagles in the offseason, is preparing to play his former team for the first time.

ESPN NFL analyst Herman Edwards says Redskins QB Donovan McNabb will hear some boos when he returns to Philadelphia on Sunday, but most Eagles fans will recognize his accomplishments. Plus, Edwards talks about Eagles QB Michael Vick.

"Honestly, I think I will be more cheered," McNabb said on his weekly appearance on ESPN-980 in Washington. "No matter what the situation is, right now I'm with a different team and it's a rival and it wasn't my choice. We had a successful 11 years. We had a lot of exciting plays and obviously some down times, but there were more exciting things in 11 years."

McNabb said in the interview that he hasn't yet thought about how he will feel when he takes the field.

Seeing how Philly fans are, I'm not quite sure if he should expect them to cheer.

I think that he's going to get a mixed reaction. It's not like he was a FA and signed somewhere else, he wasn't even told that he was traded when the deal went down. I'm sure there will be some boos but I somehow think that the cheers may outweigh them. We shall see!
