McNabb a Redskin! (Part II)
 
New thread, same topic. We were close to 1,000 replies in the last thread. Big topic, thought we'd start a new one so posts don't get lost:

Quick Thoughts-

-We didn't outbid Buffalo or Oakland. We had the upper hand because McNabb wasn't willing to go there and Reid showed respect for him by keeping his feelings in mind

-Talked to plenty of impartial people today who think this is a good move for the Redskins. By the same token, they agree that what other moves they make between now and the draft (including the draft) will be the better indicator

-Think people are really undervaluing Devin Thomas

-Mentioned this yesterday, but just a reminder that the press conference will be Tuesday at Noon

[QUOTE=GTripp0012;683192]Quoted for truth, however, this is my point. No winning organization looked at their QB situation and decided trading a 2nd round pick+ for McNabb and thought "this is an opportunity we need to chase". It was met, among winning orgainzations, with a sense of "meh, we've got a guy."[/QUOTE]

So how is that a knock against Donovan McNabb? What winning organization with a quarterback in place was interested in Drew Brees, Brett Favre, Kurt Warner?

Agreed about DT. He showed a lot and I think he'll be our #1 for a long time if we keep him.

Malcolm Kelly's development should be our focus of WR debate right now.

Kyle Orton, Chad Henne, Joe Flacco, Alex Smith, Matt Leinart, whatever's going on in Minnesota these days.

Mild interest in McNabb at best from those organizations.

Talked to all of my Dallas fans at work. They thought it was the best move for them that we could've made.

Didn't you say "winning organizations"?

And why would the Dolphins or Ravens be interested in Donovan McNabb.

This is the way I see the trade....

Campbell + Zorn < McNabb + Shanahan

They also thought Roy Williams (WR) was their savior and trashtalked when the team drafted a kicker last season.

SS also has more access to "film guys" than I do, so believe him when he says that there are people out there who do hardcore analysis and support the Redskins in this trade.

And believe me when I say that a lot of really smart people in the know have no idea what we are thinking.

Yeah, what the hell do they know anyway!

Good idea, thanks for starting this.

In a way, this move is somewhat similar to what we did after the 1998 season -- we sucked that year, brought in a fairly successful veteran QB in Brad Johnson then proceeded to win the division in '99.

Hopefully history repeats.

And why would the Dolphins or Ravens be interested in Donovan McNabb.[/quote]Well, if he's a great quarterback, I'd imagine that they'd be doing it to get a great quarterback at a second round price tag.

Or late first, in the case of the Ravens.

I wonder if Hard Knocks is regretting not picking Washington this year?
