After consecutive losses, McNabb "organized a players' only meeting and called out his teammates," telling them he was "embarrassed" by the team's performance.
This past Sunday, McNabb led his team to a come-from-behind win on the road.
According to one Eagles player, McNabb lit the fuse: "I think after the guys, the leaders, (Brian Dawkins) and Donovan sitting down with us and talking to us. I think what they said really resonated inside of us in the sense that we need to come out and just make plays."
"It all starts with confidence and how you feel mentally. Coming into this week having a winning attitude. I tried to relay that message throughout the week and also show it on the sideline: Just motivating the guys, that we're not losing this game, we're gonna win this game. A lot of things are necessary to win this game. Sometimes you may need a little kick or a little push. That's in everyday life, not just in sports."
