Problem is, I don't see how this doesn't screw the Shanahans. Let's face it, after looking at Fat Al and now McNabb, what free agent is going to be super excited to come play here? Yeah, we can throw more money at players than almost anyone else, but its not like that approach has worked great in the past. FanSince should be happy, this may actually require us to draft players almost exclusively.
This wont play well for McNabb either. Lots of bad vibes about his practice habits, plus his (relatively) poor performance mean he may not get the huge payout in the offseason he has to want.
I can't see him returning to the Skins at this point. Which means we the fans lose. We will be stuck hoping some kid we draft is the next Manning, and not the next Shuler.
Lose/lose/lose all the way around. The Shanahans have really handled this poorly, IMO. They have made the whole situation a lot worse than it needs to be. For everyone. This should have been handled behind closed doors. There is no reason why we know as much as we do. There is no reason they keep talking. Just ensuring everyone loses more.
