In an interview with the Philadelphia Inquirer McNabb denies any and all of these allegations,
That is ridiculous,” McNabb said. “I don’t know what comments you expect to get from me, but that is news to me and completely false. For me to bully anybody, that sounds unbelievable. . . .I don’t really understand why this would come about, one, and two, how this would even be an accusation. If there’s anything I can say, I was more than open to Shawn. I always tried to be open to all the guys. I’d invite them over to my house. I’d have holiday dinners or team functions, especially for the offense, every year. I’d buy all the guys gifts, if I made the Pro Bowl or not, for an appreciation. Shawn was one of the most talented offensive linemen we had. I was always happy to have him.
The timing of these accusations is interesting. Not sure what will come of it. But one has to wonder if it is true, will that make others feel safe to tell their stories? At this point, it looks like all we can do is wait and see.
