Re: McNabb a REDSKIN!

Let the Campbell wheeling and dealing begin! Campbell has been a class act through and through. I wish him the best of luck wherever he goes, well unless he plays us!

Why do they have to come off as such pricks all the time?
Drama sells.

I'm sure other players were discussed too

Yeah, Campbell is gone. How long do you think he takes his other team to the superbowl? Rich Gannon, Trent Green, and Brad Johnson....................Now, Jason Campbell. I'm thinking that unkown team is Arizona and its going to take him two years.

Exactly! Landry was also in the discussions apparently.

I swear, this is why I only listen to Football Today. I think both sports stations are crap in this area.

Different coaching situation obviously, but the QBs aren't all that dissimilar.
Well, Shanahan is the best coach in decades we've had not named Joe Gibbs.

We now have 3 RBs who could ALL excel in a shared role, especially under Shanny's offense. We'll pass less than Andy Reid, so McNabb will have less of a responsibility than he's used to. Our D is going to be solid as usual.

We'll definitely be better than the Eagles, who just dismantled their team and have a big question mark with Kolb and no defense.

The Giants are usually in turmoil and that probably won't change. They massively underachieved last season after assembling what looked like the best defensive line in the NFL.

The Cowboys still have Wade Phillips and Tony Romo to choke things away.



Things are looking up for us.

Re: McNabb a REDSKIN!

822 replies, this has got to be a record thread.

What a shocker. I can't even grasp all of this. I used to think McNabb was overrated. I came around and think he's a pretty damn good asset.

Now, for the Skins, I don't really know what to think here. Does he renogiate his contract? He's only good for 2010. Did we give up a 2nd and a 3rd/4th rounder for 1 year? I would think not. I think McNabb has several good years left in him. I think i've got to reserve judgement to see if we have him more than 1 year.

He immediately makes us better. We still don't have an oline. We are still missing some key pieces. We still need to build thru the draft, but we don't have really any picks left besides #4. Hmmm...

I think Allen and Shanahan don't believe in rebuilding. They think they can win now with this roster. You don't bring in Mike Shanahan for a rebuilding project. Allen said that he expects guys to play better and we know they'll be coached better. Oline is still a huge concern so I'm sure they have a plan for that. Let's wee what happens on draft day. I'm still hoping for Brandon Marshall!!!! McNabb to Marshall! OK I'll stop dreaming.

At least he has gotten close enough to a Championship to choke in one. This franchise hasn't even sniffed a Championship game in almost 20 years. Yes, it has almost been 20 years!

Re: McNabb a REDSKIN!

Or now do the skins go Dez in the draft? and get a OT with the JC trade?

That's how they do things in Philadelphia...you can't blame McNabb alone. You could blame Reid though.


Losing is their tradition.

Good question...do we pay for a new contract? We better after giving up a 2nd-rounder.

If no cap...no problem...if anyone can afford him, it's us.

there are only so many positions of need we can improve with the draft. some positions are going to require stop gap measures until we can find young talent.

we were able to address a position of need with the 3rd winningest QB in the league right now for a 2nd round pick+a 3/4th next year. we now can confidently can take a guy for the oline in the 1st to address the other most glaring need.

i dont even want to ask, but i will. what proof do you have that "vinny orchestrated this deal?"

Re: McNabb a REDSKIN!

I just hope Larry Johnson, Donovan McNab, & Willie Parker dont turn out to be Trung Canidate, Jeff George, and TJ Duckett.

Im soooooooooooooooo trying to be optomistic but it sure seems like we are doing the same things we have done for years.

And i know D-Mac is wayyyyyyy better that George.
