Just one of a hundred reasons why it's insane that we ended up pulling the trigger. Had to outbid luminary organizations like Buffalo and Oakland.

Where were the winning organizations on this unbelievable opportunity? Do winning organizations not require a veteran quarterback?

Winning organizations already have a quarterback.

Elway also posted consecutive 20+ TD seasons when Mike joined the organization and his TD-to-INT ratio become closer to 2 to 1. Elway had never did that before then.

The guy that you said was inferior than Reid is the Mastermind.

Shanahan has tied his stay in Washington to McNabb and I am happy with his choice.

At least McNabb will hold other players accountable and won't let an organization beat him up like a pinata at will. JC just never had it in him to stand up and be the face of the franchise. Now another team can watch him lock onto the first option and hold the ball too long.

Look up supply and demand and get back to me after you figure it out.

Quoted for truth, however, this is my point. No winning organization looked at their QB situation and decided trading a 2nd round pick+ for McNabb and thought "this is an opportunity we need to chase". It was met, among winning orgainzations, with a sense of "meh, we've got a guy."
