Former NFL quarterback and NFL Network analyst Donovan McNabb congratulated NASCAR driver Danica Patrick for winning the Daytona 500 on Twitter.
Congrats to the Illinois native Danica Patrick on her win today. The first female to win in a big race with this magnitude. Big win

The only problem is that Patrick didn’t win the race, she was the qualifying poll.
McNabb played it off as if he knew Patrick didn’t win the race.
To all the haters, in order to qualify you need to win and beat someone. Hmmm. Ponder on that one. Smh

Of course some of McNabb’s followers weren’t buying it.
@donovanjmcnabb they aren't "haters", they are people who are right. She didn't win. Congrats on your Super Bowl "win" though!

@donovanjmcnabb Ha, by "all the haters" you mean all the smart people?

It’s amazing how dumb people look when they simply won’t admit they made a mistake.
