    Default Old Donovan Up To New Tricks

    Had some downtime in the airport between flights and read a rather humorous piece on NFL.com about Leslie Frazier's staff looking at McNabb's fundamentals in Week 3.

    I don't have the link but it is priceless to see McNabb's defense of his near bottom rankings.

    McNabb is done. Kyle was right after all.

    Like Vick, his abilities as a "running back", is the only thing that ever made him a dangerous quarterback. Once the ability to hurt people running vanished, his inability as a "quarterback" became blinding. That, and not having Jim Johnson's defense setting him up, and covering his ass.

    EVERYONE knows McNugget is done. One team will give him a final chance - can you say "Bungles"!?

    Still have a DMc5 Redskins jersey for sale. It is a very rare item. I'll be happy to ship it after you send your PayPal payment to me.

    well, evidently Kyle was right all along as well - it's just that his father and Bruce Allen decided to ignore their own Offensive Coordinator and make the trade anyway.

    yes, Reid suckered the Redskins because all other teams were offering was a #3 and we were stupid enough to give them not only a #2 but a #3 the following year.

    luckily the lower profile deals the team has made have worked out far better for the club:

    Gaffney > Jarmon

    Hightower > Holliday and a #7 pick

    Carriker > swap of #5 picks in the 2010 draft

    I was loudly against this signing from the get go, Mcrapp has always been a qb who needed a lot of snaps throwing to get in rythym. sometimes it bugs me that people with more resources cant see what is so very obvious.

    BT, Jarmon was screwed from the get go, trying to rehab a knee, while gaining and then losing weight and changing position derailed what should have been a great career. HIghtower was a great signing and as long as he holds on to the ball will remain so, and Carriker was a steal lol, that was IMHO the best deal this FO has made so far.
