I have zero problem admitting when I’m wrong. I WAS WRONG.
It finally happened. Donovan McNabb has been traded to, of all teams, the Redskins. Ya know, that bitter division rival owned by Dan Snyder and coached by Mike Shanahan. In return, the Eagles get Washington’s second-round pick in April’s draft (#37) and either a third- or fourth-rounder in 2011.
Puzzling and a bit sad, to say the least, but he’s gone, gone, gone. So, all you haters got your wish. No more blaming 5 for all the Birds’ failures. Now we can start gearing up the Kevin Kolb era, for better or worse.
Actually, I’m kinda excited to see how Kolb runs the Reid west coast offense. We know what Don could do. Can KK run it better, or more efficiently? We shall see.
I’m not really in shock. I sensed something was afoot on Friday when Sheldon was dealt. I still need some time to gather my thoughts about the repercussions of this decision. At any rate, it looks like Michael Vick will remain as the backup, and another quarterback will likely be targeted in the draft.
Bye, bye Donovan. I appreciate everything the guy did in midnight green. He never brought a Super Bowl to Philly, but it wasn’t for lack of trying. He may have been slightly aloof, but he was fun to watch for eleven seasons. I will miss him and wish him nothing but the best.
