Philadelphia had serious offers on the table from Washington and Oakland, but McNabb didn't want to go to Oakland because (at the time) they were a circus.

I thought i remembered there being something goofy with McNabb's contract that allowed him to have some say in who he was traded to. Not sure what this is susposed to mean:

Quote:
If he were traded, McNabb, who doesn't retain a no-trade clause but does hold the power to decline contract offers, would prefer the Minnesota Vikings, according to a report in The Philadelphia Inquirer, which cited sources close to the situation.
Report: Philadelphia Eagles want draft pick among top 42 in deal with quarterback Donovan McNabb - ESPN

Interestingly the article notes that Oakland was willing to trade Asomugha, but Philly not wanting it because the asking price was too high; Oakland wanted more then just McNabb.

Regardless of what all this says about our mistake is trading for McNabb, i think it really says a lot about how well run the philly front office is. I hate philly more then any other team, and i know/love that they have never won a superbowl, and that last year blew up on them, but i dont think many of us here would do the things philly did in the last few years very differently, amazingly even in retrospect.

Well, from what I hear the alleged offer from NFL Network is more tempting

Re: Was McNabb misused in Minnesota also?

So is McNabb by all accounts going to retire?

Something else, what else would you expect McNabb to say? He is going to be done with football pretty soon and by saying something that some people will surely find truth in he is only bolstering his eventual broadcast career. And more importantly mending fences with the eagles. If he came out and spoke highly the Redskins it limits his post career success/tribute in philly.

He doesn't have a choice in the matter. Nobody wants his sorry scrub ass. You know it's bad when people put in waiver claims for Orton over you. KYLE ORTON for F's sake. This is from QB needy teams. Hell, Houston rather had rolled with a rookie QB than pick him up.

True statement. Moreover, it is cherry-picking time-wise to artificially start the clock of evaluation after Elway. The example of Elway shows that Shanny can work with an established QB who might be set in his ways...like McNabb.

He has pretty emphatically said he is not and will not be a backup. So no one is interested in him right now.

As for your 2nd point I don't get it

Even Deion Sanders thinks McNugget is a joke.

Not me! I was never in favor with #2 + #3! Never, ever, ever. Philly saw the writing on the wall that Shanahan refused to see until long, long after a 2 & 3 were wasted on that fatefull Easter day!

When I watch that video Im impressed with Mcnabbs play in that game.He was under constant heavy pass rush,he scrambled like the Mcnabb of old,he had at least 6 drops of very catchable balls,he did not look washed up at all to me in this game
Keep in mind that game he went 7-15 for 39 yards with 1 TD, 1 INT. He was basically Lord Checkdown in that game (way above the rank of Captain).

AFTER I got over the shock of bringing in a F..n Eagle, I loved the idea and was certain we could get some Top Shelf QB play for a few years.
........Quickly, it became apparent why Andy let him go.....What I am, Oh sooo.....tired of is his continued....cheap shots at the Redskins organization and coaches in a thinly veiled attempt to cover for his repeated failures over the last couple of years.

It's something you see from a lot of Ex-Redskins so I have to believe there's a modicum of truth to it.

Carlos Rogers is also doing it currently

Re: Was McNabb misused in Minnesota also?

You may be right, but then again, how many other teams do you follow closely enough to be aware of such things?
......I can say, I do not. And other than Mc...., off the top of my head, I cannot think of anyone else being......disgruntled with the organization under the current regime.

Re: Was McNabb misused in Minnesota also?

I for one will admit I believed bringing McNabb in was instant credibility. Why woulnd't anyone think so? He won a ton of games in philly, probowls, NFC championships, superbowl. I honestly thought it was a fantastic move regardless of the draft picks. McNabb reinvented the QB position in my eyes. I guy that put up ridiculous #'s passing and running, big physical guy.

Now, for what happened when he was here, i thought ego's definitely played a HUGE part in the success. He wanted to do somethings that he thought would help the offense, which as a player I think he has the right to do. Little Shanny wanted to do things his way, understandibly due to the success he had in Houston with that offense. Ultimately you would have liked to see those two put egos aside and just do what was best for the team, but neither wavered, enter Rex Grossman.

To say that RGIII will not have any success is such a dumb ass thing to say. 1st, RGIII will do what the coaches ask, and has no preconceived notions of what plays he should run, or abilities of the team he is on. He is a rookie and his learning of the game and offense will be directly from the Shanny's. Because of McNabbs lack of humility, doesn't mean everyone will fail due to a style of offense.

I really thought McNabb was a better individual that what he has been showing. Guess i thought wrong.

He has shown to be an egocentric ass wipe (sorry if I spelled egocentric wrong)
