[sarcasm]No way! Fat Andy did all he could. McNabb just hit his ceiling and was assisted by guys like Reggie Brown, Kevin Curtis, and James Thrash(ok, he had Jackson and Westbrook). The running game really can't help him much. At best it's only "insignificant" at best in the grand scheme of things[/sarcasm]

No one can call Simms a JC hater because he defended him too.

Adam Schefter reported on his twitter page

NFL execs believe one reason Eagles traded McNabb to Redskins was so Washington could not acquire Oklahoma QB Sam Bradford. More @ espn.com.

Redskins Insider - McNabb wastes no time stepping into leadership role

Quote:
Donovan McNabb, who visited Redskins park for the first time just two days ago, has already made himself at home.

The Redskins' newly acquired quarterback familiarized himself quickly with the practice field and his new offensive teammates. He was working out with receivers Thursday afternoon, throwing routes with receivers. And apparently, it didn't take him long to make himself comfortable.

"Donovan's outstanding. It feels like he's been here for a couple of years," tight end Chris Cooley said. "Instantly, he's a leader. Instantly, he knows what it takes to have a team together. He's talked with all the guys, fits in extremely well."

McNabb walked off the practice field, laughing with his new teammates. Cooley wasn't the only one who noticed how quickly the quarterback is adapting to his new team.

"Right away, it's almost like he's been here. It's almost like he got the playbook when we got it," receiver Malcolm Kelly said. "It's crazy because he knows everything. He already knows the concepts and things like that and he's just been here two or three days. You can tell the way he carries himself and the way he is on the field that he has a lot of confidence. And that spreads to the rest of the guys out there on the field."

McNabb is expected to remain in town through the team's first minicamp, which begins April 16. While he's already studying up on the new playbook, he carries himself like a player who's not too worried about picking up the new system.

"He's a cool dude, man. That really brings the pressure of practice down when you got a guy who's laid-back and still about his business," Kelly said.

McNabb isn't the only one learning the new system obviously. Receivers are learning new routes. Tight ends are trying to learn their new roles ("Personally, I have a ton of opportunity to move around a lot," Cooley said. "I would compare it with what Joe [Gibbs] did with the tight end and H-back.")

But those others players did have a slight headstart on McNabb. No one seems to think that will be a problem.

"I don't think anyone was worried about his ability to come and be the quarterback with this team and fit in as a teammate," Cooley said. "He's very good at that. Very personable. And he knows what it takes. I think you like that as a player, you like a guy that's been there, a guy that's been in five NFC championships, been in the Super Bowl and understands what it's going to take."

Ahhh gotta love the honeymoon period...

Seriously though, DMac is a pro. I'm not at all surprised he's handling himself so well and is impressing his teammates so much.

I can see that as a reason. But, I still don't see how we would have gotten Bradford, so it still seems like a gamble on their part

Yeah, to me part of the reason for our trading was that it became clear that we weren't getting Bradford.

If that's true then Andy Reid must be a better coach then Vince Lombardi to have won all those games with the most overrated QB in NFL history.
