Wow, we had THREE GUYS NAMED Albert Glen (Turk) Edwards, all in the HOF!


How about we end the ongoing argument with "McNabb's best years and biggest accomplishments may be remembered as a Redskin".

He was NEVER going to win with Philly.

I'm making an argument that the HoF has an implicit induction which even fans recognize. Like I said, Bruce Smith is a Bill (did you see what team he gushed over in his induction speech? It wasn't the Redskins), Deion Sanders is a Cowboy, Jerry Rice is a 49er, Brett Farv is a Packer, so on and so on.

I'm not concerned about it, I already know.

I get what you're saying, but technically you are still wrong. Sure these guys will be known for playing for a certain team, but they are not officially inducted that way as baseball does.

Just pointing out that you are wrong. One thing is to have an opinion about something, and you're right, (on the opinion that) certain players are known for being in certain teams. However....

In this case you were wrong, because as the HOF site explains it, nominees are not asked to choose a team. The way you explain this, makes it sound like the process for the Baseball HOF.

The "PRE" presser is on ComCast right now. The presser should start in 15-20 minutes.

Interesting. So Reggie White who spent more years in Philly than the Packers is a Packer...yet you wouldn't consider McNabb a Redskin?

Back to my suggestion...if McNabb wins it all in B&G, he could be remembered more for his success as a Redskins.


Funny how Philadelphia is being demoted in both of these situations. They will never win a Lombardi.


Of course it's not official, but if he finally gets over his "can't win the big game" reputation here...it will be a huge part of his legacy and could put him over the top if there is any debate about his HOF resume.


Sure, Reggie White was GREAT on the Eagles, but a lot of people think of him as a Packer first, because that's where he had his greatest success.

Tough question....although if he does win a Super Bowl with the Redskins, I would say that this would be high profile enough for him to be remembered more as a Redskins. And it seems that Philly fans are very divided in regards to McNabb. Still, I don't think you'd get a straight answer, though good question.

Well, White had tangible success with the Packers. It's still unknown whether McNabb will pull an Elway as we've only had him for two days. IF he does though, who knows.....

With the way Jackson was gushing over the Saints win and the fact that he watched the SB from Saints owner Tom Benson's box it's a no brainer who is his team. Football HoF is not like baseball, I'll admit that but lets not act like players and fans don't assign teams to themselves/them.

Re: Donovan McNabb: The New Face of The Redskins

McNabb will always be tied to Philly. But a Super Bowl win as a Redskin would definitely make his time here very notable.

White hated the Eagles front office, so much so that he was one of the players that sued the NFL for free agency. With the kind of animosity between White and the Eagles I'm inclined to say he is a Packer.

5 years with the Skins and a SB could give McNabb some Skins creds but until then we should tame our excitement about him.

That is all you had to say.

Re: Donovan McNabb: The New Face of The Redskins

For the Redskins fans that don't live in the Philly metro area. I've be a 'skins fan since Sonny was the QB. Living in the Philly area, I have been forced to watch the Eagles games because it's the only game in town. I have watched every game McNabb has played and he is not the "Superstar" the rest of the country thinks he is. They only show you his good plays, which is about two out of 10 passes. His other passes are either over the WR's head or bouncing at their feet or very short passes the WRs turn into big gains. His five yard dump offs to Westbrook that turn into 50 yard TDs make him look great in the media. He is one of the biggest hot dogs in the league and believes people when they tell him he's great. He was the self appointed "captain" of the ship in Philly. Yeah, I also had to watch the post game show where he pleasured himself. He sucked when he was in his prime and now he is an over the hill QB who is comparing himself to John Elway and Brett Favre!!! Do you believe this guy? Do you know why the Eagles gave him to the 'skins, a division rival? Because they are not afraid of him, they know he sucks and is washed up! Ole' Danny means well, but he is becoming another Al Davis by taking washed up players. It all started with Bruce Smith and it continues to this day! Look at how many bums he has brought in! At least he is willing to spend his money improving team. Not like that fag Jeffery Laurie in Philly who is afraid to open his purse. That's why the Eagles lost a lot of good players over the years. Just a warning, the 'skins made a bad move taking McChoke as we call him around here! Wait and see! You'll be sooorrrrryyyy!
