He signed this extension after guiding the Eagles to a 9-6-1 record last season. The 32-year-old guided the team to the second-best NFC East record in 2008.

Only the New York Giants had a better record within the Division with a 12-4 mark. Despite the second-place finish in the Division, McNabb took the Eagles on a deep run in the playoffs.

The Arizona Cardinals defeated the Eagles 32-25 in the NFC Championship game at the University of Phoenix Stadium on January 18th, 2009.

McNabb went 345 of 571 for 3,916 yards. He had 23 touchdown passes and four interceptions.

The 3,916 passing yards on the season were the most in his career up until this stage in his career. It was also the seventh most in the league overall.

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees led the league with 5,069 yards. Kurt Warner, Jay Cutler, Aaron Rodgers, Philip Rivers, and Peyton Manning had more yards than McNabb.
