Re: Donovan McNabb's comments in the Washington Post

I cant believe Mike Wise hit for the dochebag cycle. First he stands behind rg3 purposely with an indian shirt and then brings an McNabb to take shots at the Skins and RG3 within the same week.

Mike Wise right now holding the Intercontinental Douchebag Championship Belt.

Re: Donovan McNabb's comments in the Washington Post

Here's what I don't get at all...why I am supposed to give a sh*t about what Mike Wise thinks? Right or wrong at least McNabb was SOMETHING. What the hell has Mike Wise ever been other than a mediocre columnist? Even before when he wasn't being king douche supreme he wasn't like a go to guy for content. I WANT to like him...he seems sorta cool in interviews...but then all this stuff.

BTW...talk about an off season quagmire.

Re: Donovan McNabb's comments in the Washington Post

I believe he is making an analogy of John Daly giving advice to Tiger Woods about golf and Donovan McNabb giving advice to RG3 about football.

Thought D.Graziano said it very well: The 'Who Cares?' Files: Donovan McNabb on Robert Griffin III - ESPN

Quote:
1. I don't care, at all, what Donovan McNabb has to say about Robert Griffin III.

2. I am 1,000 percent confident that Griffin doesn't either, and he shouldn't.

3. I don't see why anyone, anywhere would care what McNabb has to say about Griffin, because the first time we heard him on this topic he was both insanely wrong and clearly biased. McNabb's "First Take" appearance last spring, in which he deployed a nakedly obvious grudge against Mike Shanahan to assert that Griffin would be a poor fit for the Redskins' offense, completely deprived him of any credibility on this topic forever.
You can agree or disagree with Shanny's handling of Griffin, but you can't say MS hasn't changed and adapted his offense around Griffin's skills. The "completely deprived him of any credibility on this topic" part of the quote is spot on.

Graziano pretty much nails it.

That statement definitely hit the nail on the head. McNabb has no credibility in this matter and should really just move the hell on. (mike wise as well)




To add salt to the gashing womb, I particularly liked what Rich Campbell had to say as well:

Quote:
"I’m not sure how a former quarterback can rip an organization, have your agent do the same, blast the way the team is going to coach their new quarterback before he even takes a snap, turn out to be totally wrong about that coaching and then expect to the organization to return his phone calls or put any credence in any advice he may want to dish out to that new QB. And then choose a columnist who is not very popular among Redskins fans to deliver the message? Donovan McNabb seems to be the one who is in need to the career advice, not RG3."

Re: Donovan McNabb's comments in the Washington Post

[QUOTE=Skinzman;1010617]When you show up in a new town and pretty much tell every single person on the team that you have no intention of working for a common goal, that pretty much tells me all I need to know about him.

The one person who respected him, Andy Reid, traded him within the division. Which in sports, is one of the biggest shows of disrespect that one can get. No way he comes to Washington if Reid thinks there is something left in the tank. He was sent from Philly with almost everyone of his team mates and an entire city not even caring enough to say goodbye. They all said good riddens. QUOTE]

I didn't remember McNabb saying anything negative through that season?? What did he say exactly?

To be honest I thought he had some very solid games. What defined that season was the worst defense we'd seen in Washington in I think a decade. I believe we were bottom of the league in most categories. It was atrocious, and 100% the result of Mike blowing up the defense we had. So, if there's a culprit for a shitty season that year, pointing to McNabb is, again, a real cheap shot.

Per the trade, it says just as much about our FO/coaches taking McNabb as it does Reid letting him go. It was obvious he was on the decline. And everyone knew he came from a pass heavy offense to a run heavy offense. So to work it would have taken a lot of adjustment from both sides IMO.

But regardless, defense was the big problem that year, as has been Mike's theme in Washington so far. To pretend otherwise is silly.

Re: Donovan McNabb's comments in the Washington Post

Some hilarious comments I've seen on the various media outlets.


Quote:
McNabb just wants to show him the best way to throw up without hitting your shoes

Quote:
Is Mcnabb going to teach RG3 how to throw his famous bounce-pass?
Quote:
I wish I could be a fly on the wall for this conversation. “Son, let me tell you about the rules for overtime”.

Quote:
If McNabb is now giving career advice, maybe McNabb can let Ronde Barber pick his brain. Again.

You really have selective memory. You don't remember his agent blasting Mike and Kyle claiming things that McNabb felt? Who do you think all that shit came from? McScrub himself. Then he didn't even disagree with his agent when it came out in the press, but claimed he didn't feel that way. C'mon man...

I agree with that. Not all the FO was on board with this. We know at least Kyle didnt' want McNabb in the first place.

No. QB play was a huge reason, which is why McNabb got benched.

Re: Donovan McNabb's comments in the Washington Post

The D was no worse under McNabb than it was last year for Griffin, in fact last years D gave up more points.

RG3 as a rookie outperformed McNabb's season here in every way possible, still a hard pill for McNabb to swallow I guess.
