Re: McNabb a REDSKIN!

Well, somehow we need to get a starting LT and RT and ideally find a franchise WR too...all we have is #4 pick and Jason Campbell (and perhaps Andre Carter, Haynesworth, Landry...the problem with trading anyone other than Campbell is that we'd need their replacement.)

Re: McNabb a REDSKIN!

I like the move.

But it feels like dating a friends hot ex-girlfriend.

Yes, we better after giving up 2 picks for a one year rental. How long of a contract? 3 years. Not too many QB's perform well in their late 30's. Yes, of course Favre and Warner, but it's a real short list.

Re: McNabb a REDSKIN!

A couple of important questions...

A) Has anyone heard when the press conference is scheduled to introduce him?

B) When is the McNabb avatar popping up?!? lol

2nd rounders have less than a 20% success rate at QB.

Re: McNabb a REDSKIN!

Needless to say I'm really displeased with this transaction.

More of the same if you ask me. This team can't show the discipline it takes to build a winning team.

Re: McNabb a REDSKIN!

I love this move. To all the doubters of McNabbs ability, you need to llok long and hard at his work. There is more positives to be taken from a trade of this caliber than negatives.

With some more work done on the Oline MS and BA could turn our franchise around in a year.

We as Redskins fans have not had a QB of this caliber for a very long time. Also I read a post above that indicated that this was a one year rental, do you really believe that DM5 will not finish his career here in Washington. He has at the least 4 great years left and as many as 7.

There are also many fans on here who have said that MS didn't win a SB without Elway, well guess what guys. We've got our guy now. I would trade 2 draft picks to become relivent in the NFL again in a heartbeat.

Re: McNabb a REDSKIN!

man, its hard to put into words what im thinking. so many pros n cons.

we will most def have to resign him. the question i have is when, how much and how long.

do we wait until mid-season or so to see what we got and give shanny/kyle/allen some time to see him actually in our offense.

i think a 3 year deal would be best. hes 33, turning 34 in november. i think QBs can play at a high level for the next 3 years.

the contract probably is going to have to be from 10-18 mil/year range. if we franchise him, the tag would be roughly 20 mil from articles i read discussing if the raiders traded for him.

i think mcnabb is an upgrade over campbell who i really think just couldnt read defenses. alot of times, when he threw the ball, the receiver had to run his route and then be open before JC would trust what he saw and throw the ball.

i was really hoping the skins would find a way to get a protypical pocket passer who uses his mental aspects to read defenses, make proper reads and deliver the ball on time and accurate.

my impression of mcnabb is that he can go thru spells where he is painfully inaccurate.

this move gives a chance to go .500, maybe playoffs if the stars align. 2 - 3 years from now seems to be our window to be a contender.

i like the move, as i really think JC held us back. yeah the line sucked but when JC had time he sucked too. i think JC didnt receive the best coaching situation here but i also think his limitations handcuffed in-coming coaches as well (cant read D, no coach trusted him to make audibles probably b/c he couldnt read D schemes).

I believe they could have done that anyway. Without McNabb.

Re: McNabb a REDSKIN!

Well that didn't take long, Brennan goes back to #15 so Donovan can wear #5.

Team - Washington Redskins




Is Bidwell REALLY wearing #0? I'd love that but I think it's illegal now. No more Jim Otto #00s allowed.
