A source with knowledge of the situation confirmed a report on yahoo.com yesterday that "Go Cards" and similar messages were burned into the front lawn of Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb's home in Chandler, Ariz., at some point last week.

The report said that McNabb's wife, Roxie, and his three children were staying at the house, but the source said it was not clear if they were at the home at the time of the incident.

The Web site's report said that McNabb took a photo of the damaged lawn and used it as a motivating factor for the NFC title game against the Cardinals.

McNabb was not available for comment.

According to the report, one of the culprits was identified after leaving a box at the scene with his mailing label attached.
