The Philadelphia Eagles offensive tackle took offense to Donovan McNabb’s comments regarding Carson Wentz that made the rounds over the weekend suggesting Philly should look at adding a different QB if Wentz can’t get them out of the second round of the playoffs in the next two years.
“I think in the next two years or so, he needs to find a way to get out of the second round of the playoffs,” McNabb said on The Zach Gelb Show. “What Nick Foles was able to do, take them to a Super Bowl and then possibly take them back to the NFC Championship proves that, hey, some people can get into that offense and be very successful. [Wentz] hasn’t been healthy. He hasn’t really proven to me, besides the year before he got hurt, in his first year, of really the MVP candidate. He needs to get back to that mode.”
In response, Johnson tweeted at McNabb saying: “(six snake emojis)…and you wonder why nobody respects you when you come back !!!!”

McNabb has always been a controversial figure in Philadelphia.
Donovan responded with his own tweet.
