Does no one see the USA Today article that says this is a lie?

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.

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.
