I see a league were Kurt Warner revived his career at 36 years old and Brett Farve had his best season at 40. QB now more then ever is a mental position where while your physical skills may diminish, your ability to read and dissect defenses will be worth the trade off. And all this for a second round pick. Tell me would you have been happy if we just traded Rocky McIntosh for McNabb? I know we shouldn't give away all of our draft picks and we need to build through the draft but a second rounder for a guy like McNabb is insane if you ask me.
There is no doubt about that Dirtbag. Kurt Warner was the QB for the "Greatest Show on Turf." He QBed three teams to SB's and won 1. He is an amazing story. Has Brett Favre EVER missed a game because of injury? He also led 3 teams to SB's and won 1. I don't put McNabb in that category. And unfortunately we didn't just trade a 2nd rounder for him even though that seemed to be all they were asking, we also threw in a 3rd or 4th next year. It's funny how we talk about how important it is to keep our picks...until we decide it isn't.

Seriously though, if we're not in the NFC East I think we don't have to throw in next year's pick. Call it a premium to get a division rival's franchise QB... this type of trade rarely happens. You've gotta remember that the Eagle's FO knows they're helping a division foe get stronger; considering division is everything, you've got to sweeten the pot a bit. I think we came out just fine.
It's even funnier a day earlier cause most Eagle fans were happy about the trade and said they would have taken less just to get rid of McNabb. some even offered to back the truck up and move his ass. LOL.

It sounded today like half the fans would have taken anything and were no longer happy with him, and the other half just can't see McNabb in a Skins uni. I didn't hear any of them saying "we should have gotten more for him."

Some of us are putting a pretty high value on JC. That's what fans do. Philly was in a bind with McNabb deciding he wouldn't sign with certain teams. I don't think next years picks were necessary.

I just don't see Hall as that person yet and Rodgers keeps shooting himself in the foot running his mouth. Maybe Landry if he's not traded?

I could see either the 3 WR's or the 2 TE's. Those are my picks. To me McNabb will not be the face and I'll be pissed if the team presents him as that. Just let him play and if he does well and the team is 90% better because of him then let the fan base decide. Just don't push it on me.
I'm not trying to push anything, McNabb is not who I want as our poster boy.It's a shame we've got THE 100 MILLION DOLLAR MAN and noone has even consider throwing his name in the ring as the face for the team.

Cooley, Moss, Orakpo, maybe Flether they are the only ones I can give my seal of approval on.

Thats something we can agree with. Lol, I saw the Bills message board and someone thought we would trade JC for a 5th round pick and a 32 year old linebacker that didn't even play last year.

Hell we might have a strike next year so it might not make a diffrence. I dont want a strike but what does a strike do for next years draft(honest question)?

That's a good question. I honestly don't know right now but there are members who are very well versed in that sort of thing. I'm not one of them.

He looks like a hockey player. Probably a grinder.

Edit: Never mind, he had 3 whole tackles last year.

Look I don't even mind the 5th round offer, it's very possible that might be the highest we can get, but don't act like you're sweetening the deal by adding a random player that wouldn't make it past training camp.

Hmmm... I just took a look at a few forums today and I heard plenty of Eagles fans saying exactly that. My Eagles' buddy thinks we absolutely stole him.

Wingheads

If you read the entire thread, there's a few guys chiming in on the value they received- I didn't see one believing they got the better end of the deal (just a few anxious to see Kolb).

Re: Donovan McNabb: The New Face of The Redskins

I agree, this is a good trade, D-Mac should have at least 3 good years left, and he is a proven winner who will command Respect both on the field and off. Donovan is the new Face of the Franchise, and biggest sports star in DC. Shanahan will build the offense to McNabb's strengths, and surround him with experienced veterans. Big Mike is going for a Championship or two within the next 3 years. Then he will turn the team over to Kyle and re-start the building process. In my opinion, that is.

At least it wasn't Romo.
I hear what you are saying, BUT, just think of the epileptic reaction of Cowboys fans. That actually made me smile

So if he wins 2 SB's here, does he go into the HOF as an Eagle, who's fans booed him, and would hate him after he beats them in the NFC Championship game, or as a Redskin, whose fans cheered him on as he led us to our 4th and 5th Lombardi trophies.

Ah, the morning glow is starting to shine!

I do. McNabb is Shanny's guy. Janky Spanky is fighting for a roster spot.
Well, this reminds me of TO/McNabb:The Locker Room Saga. Let's hope Shanahan reins in CP before it ever gets to this point.

Exactly! This whole post is dead on. (Until McNabb wins us 3 SB's)
