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.
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.
The fat man Himself said that the best deal was Washington. Sometimes with the Eagles, You don't know who to believe.
