If the Eagles are convinced a team can't win with McNabb, wouldn't they WANT him playing for a rival?

If I were trading a player I'd take the best deal, regardless of who it was coming from.

There are so many mixed emotions here. He's a winner so why move him in favor of the unknown? But it's time for a change also (McNabb has had 11 years and at this point will he ever win it all?) - and we have this supposed stud Kolb riding the bench ala Aaron Rodgers or is he?

It comes down to what you get for him if you move him. What if you can't get "value" for him. If you have NcNabb/Kolb/Vick all in their last year of their contract you have tied your own hands in terms of what you will get as everybody knows you are moving at least one guy.

I do believe that McNabb will hold a Super Bowl trophy one day - but I'd be surprised if it was he and Andy Reid holding it up together.

Looks like he's a Redskin. It will be funny to see him pound Philly twice this season.

I'm guessing PHI-WSH will be a Week 1 or 2 primetime game now.

Major coupe for Washington. Stupid move the Eagles, IMO. McNabb is the best player in franchise history not named Reggie White, Tommy McDonald or Steve Van Buren. The Eagles just made the Redskins relevant and themselves irrelevant in one swoop.

Fuck. Now I have to worry about the fucking Redskins when they play the G-Men!

I can't believe They only got a 2nd & a 3rd or 4th in next year's draft. They should've gotten more. This gives Them like 11 or 12 picks this year, with 5 in the top 84.

WIP will need a new switchboard after tomorrow. A Guy on a Philly Sports board that I belong to,  said that Yesterday McNabb would be traded either Sunday Night or Monday Morning, according to someone He knows in the Front Office,  to try to steal some of the Phillies opening day thunder. I guess He was right. It's a damn shame that the McNabb era is over. Good luck in D.C. #5!

I just saw the other day that the Redskins met with Claussen, do they still draft a QB and let him learn from a future HOF like McNabb for a couple of years or does this shuffle the draft board now?


(Before answering, remember this is the Redskins we're talking about)

The way ESPN was reporting it, the Eagles did not get top dollar for him partially because they were accomodating McNabb, who asked to be traded to Wash. The story was reported that the 'Skins did not think they had much of a chance to land McNabb (they could not offer more than a #2 pick), but then their chances improved when he asked to go there. In the process, the Eagles were not able to ask as much as they could have from the Raiders.

Also let me point out as a Pirates fan that the Redskins approach this year of acquiring guys who were major stars on the downside of their careers doesn't tend to work well. I mean, if it's one guy then yeah it's worth the "what the hell" chance, but not when you use that philosophy to build your whole offense.

And yes timed to steal the headlines away from the Phillies. I hate this move.

I officially don't get the Eagles fans here.

--They wanted McNabb out.

--Philly said they wanted a top-42 pick, so they knew what to expect.

--They got that pick AND another middle round pick.

--They don't like the trade.

Considering that McNabb is only signed for one more year AND the Eagles wanted to go with Kolb, I don't see what the problem is.

I don't understand the desire to run Donovan out of town, do Eagles fans really thing Kevin fucking Kolb is going to lead them to the promised land?

Ok so Donovan says "I would like to go here, here and here" - the correct counter to that is "Um ok not in the division so cross off Washington".

I was never sold a top 42 pick was "enough" anyway. Too much ongoing drama would have got better value by playing the waiting game.

Neither of us can say for sure, but I don't think waiting would have worked for Philly.

And how much can they ask for a guy that they:

A: Want to get rid of.
B: Can leave after one year?

More if somebody's QB goes down in training camp.
