Shanahan obviously didn't think so.

How is it completely different? Both were old players. Both we gave up draft picks for. One didn't live up to his resume and went back to a team we gave draft picks for. I just hope it doesn't happen again.

Fair enough and I agree, I would be doing back flips right now if say we were a playoff team last year or a bubble team at least but since we were so bad I don't see how McNabb gets us over the top (over the top to me is playoffs with a decent run in them, not necessarily SB champs).

Here is my one glimmer of hope. that Mike S. and company came in saw this team and realize they can do great stuff if you tweak a few key positions. From what it has sound like from last year it was just a complete mountie. So maybe the skins will have an about face this year. NFL is the best league to go worst to first in.

You keep harping on the injuries but those 2 injury filled seasons were in 2005 and 2006.

In the 3 seasons since then he's throw for 10,793 yards, 64 TDs, and 28 INTs.

He just posted a 92.9 QB rating last year, the 3rd best single season rating in his career.

Are we talking about the same guy?

And no other team is trying to make a move for JC. There were alot of times last year when JC just stunk it up.

DM isnt in his prime anymore and anyone that watches football knows that. Shanny knows JC doesnt have it and doesnt want to waste time trying so they have decided to move on. It will be interesting to see how many games DM plays without getting hurt but it wont be 16.

Taylor was playing out of position and in a scheme that didn't use him properly.

Re: McNabb a REDSKIN!

If people are comparing JC to McNabb and saying JC is the better option at QB for the Skins, that is absolutly the stupidest thing I have ever read here period. There is no comparison what so ever, that is insane, I dont care what the stats say or what the Philly's scheme says....this was a major upgrade at QB

Thats not why I'm comparing JC. I'm not a fan of JC either. What I am comparing is the stats for those stat oriented people. JC's were not that much different then McNabb's and McNabb had a much better situation to work in. We should have just picked up Delhonme, I don't think we would have had to give up the 2nd round pick for a HOF, franchise type QB who knows how to get to the SB.

This is a major upgrade at QB (anything would be a major upgrade from JC) but I dont see DM lasting more that 2 yrs.

I think what MattyK was trying to say was that the team looks a lot different in 2010.

2009 Redskins = Zorn+Campbell
2010 Redskins = Shanny+McNabb

And dont forget that he got hurt before he was really able to get going.

Re: McNabb a REDSKIN!

Mike and Mike said that we offered up Haynesworth for McNabb. Did any one here of this?
