Why not? They've proven with McNabb they can get close a lot, but haven't won it all. It's not really a knock on him but he's 34 (I think), they have a solid backup in Kolb, they might as well build for their future while they can.

I don't think there's any offer on the table, but there's definitely interest. I think the 49ers will get back in the fray soon though.

Turned out a lot better than when Spurrier threw Patrick Ramsey to the dogs now didn't it? JC isn't a bad QB, maybe not the guy to get us to the SB, but he is more than serviceable.

I think we've seen that qb's can play well into their late 30's. 34 is not too old for a QB. Meanwhile Kolb is unknow. Why trade a top QB in his prime for an unknown. Not smart IMO.

i know he kicked ass everytime he had an oppotunity, from all accounts he seems to be a legit nfl qb

It is a Brett Favre/Aaron Rodgers thing. You make such a move when you have confidence in the young QB and you can't keep the young QB on the bench forever, meaning you have to move on to the new generation.

Plus the Eagles are loaded at QB.

The Philly Inquirer is confirming a deal is on the table.

I am unable to post the link, due to my low post count. But I will cut and paste a few sentences here. And maybe someone else can post the link:



ORLANDO -- Donovan McNabb could be in a Rams uniform by the end of the day, possibly by the end of the week.

The Eagles have an offer on the table that would give them St. Louis' second-round draft pick (33d overall) and free safety Oshiomogho Atogwe in exchange for McNabb. That deal, however, is "not yet completed," according to a league source.

McNabb would be willing to go to the Rams if he was given a contract extension, according to a source close to the situation. He would not be willing to play for Buffalo or Oakland, two moribund franchises that might be willing to take McNabb without an extension.
Atogwe is a RFA who still hasn't signed a deal so I don't see how that deal could happen unless he signed a contract with the Rams right before the trade.

You are right about the bottom line.

And if this Mcnabb trade goes through, then expect us to get Bradford and expect Jason to be traded on the same day.
Seahawks got off easy, in fact we I think of the maneuvering the Seahawks went with to get him I'm reminded of the Staples guy. Campbell is only worthy to carry the helmet of Whitehurst. You guys will rue the day Whitehurst was traded to the NFC. Come my children and join the Knights of Whitehurst.

Perfect Post for #5,000. Man who would have thought I would have ever lasted after my Andre Carter thread back in 2006.

Re: Rumor: Eagles and Rams Finalizing Trade Involving McNabb

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I could have sworn there was a topic on how none of the most recent playoff/SB teams didn't have a top 1st round LT. and perhaps the same could be said of QB's but it amazes me how much people are playing on the fact that "we have to have a top 1st round LT." Especially with several considerations...

1- Shanahan gets equivilant level of play out of mid to late round OL talent.
2- The proto typical zone blocking LT's coming out of the draft are not seen as worthy of a 1st or 2nd round pick.
3- Originally I had heard Okung was not fit for a team utilizing zone blocking. Supposedly he had bad lateral movement and was more built for man-to-man blocking. Most recently some of these reports have softened.

Then theres the lets trade back for more picks theory...

1- Someone has to want to trade (unless as someone put it to me...we simply force another team to take the deal. ).
2- We are willing to except taking a player who's figured to go mid to late round zone blocker late in the first round.
3- Possibly willing to take lesser talent QB like JC and hope he can be developed possibly within a year if JC decides to leave.
