McNabb headed to Washington

The Philadelphia Eagles have reached agreement on a blockbuster intra-division trade that will send perennial Pro Bowl quarterback Donovan McNabb to the Washington Redskins, according to multiple sources close to the situation.


NFC East blog
ESPN.com's Matt Mosley writes about all things NFC East in his division blog.

Blog network: NFL Nation


The two sides still must finalize language, but McNabb is now headed to Washington. Compensation is not yet known, but it is likely to include Washington's 2010 second-round pick.

The move means the Redskins now have a new starting quarterback and the Eagles have a new one as well in Kevin Kolb. Michael Vick is now in line as the team's backup.

Sources said McNabb's contract, which has one year and $11.2 million left on it, scared off several other teams. McNabb is due a $6.2 million roster bonus on May 5 and is scheduled to become a free agent after the 2010 season.

At the league meetings, head coach Andy Reid said the Eagles were listening to offers for all three quarterbacks, including 11-year veteran McNabb, who quickly said on his Web site that he wanted a quick resolution to the trade conversations

I'll reserve right to speak until my emotions calm down. I love my Eagles and feel very stongly against this trade, especially to the fucking DIVISON opponent Redskins!

Time to get my fucking Kolb jersey ordered! At least I can visit Cowboys stadium twice this year, once to cheer for my Birds and once for Mcnabb and the Redskins!

Fuck this, lol.

As much as I think McNabb sucks donkey balls, he's still better than Campbell. If they actually get any kind of descent recieving core this year, they could still easily give the Cowboys secondary fits.

Well, that at least makes the Redskins legit again. Hmmmm I don't want to say this is bad news for the boys, but think of it like this. Andy Reid isn't going to let Mcnabb go just because. It is obvious Kobb is better than anyone outside the Eagles knows. This could actually be bad in a sense that, the eagles could still stay good, and the Redskins just got better and will no longer be a slam dunk, pencil in the win for the boys.

And Willie looks like broke ass Willie. Not worried too much about him.

But is the Redskins O-line doing to be able to protect him? I also think that Vick will be the starter once camp is over.

I am in awe that a Cowboys fan is actually making sense and thinking logically. Say it isn't so??!?!??!?!??!??!?!

I feel sorry for Jason Campbell. Two years ago he had a great start to the year with not throwing a interception in like the first 6 games. Campbell hasnt had the same system ever since he came in the league. Eagle fans just dont make since to me. The ones that want him out of town, dont appreciate how good of a QB he is. This is a guy that took the Eagles to 5 NFC Championship games, 1 Super Bowl, and a consistent playoff contender. Besides, whats so great about Kolb? In a way, I hope the Eagles stink next year so that way McNabb can have the last laugh.

After seeing Kolb play when Mcnabb was out probably sparked the Eagles interest a bit. He played fairly well.

I can't believe they would send him to Washington. I just never thought that would be a possibility.

Whooohoooo Redskins! Now pick up Marshall from Denver

Redskins will be making a run at the Super Bowl this year.....


The Skins have a great backfield IMO. Larry Johnson, Clinton Portis who Mike Shanahan originally drafted and also now Willie Parker!

I thought about this even further on the way in today. Looking at the receivers the Redskins have, and the overall tools Mcnabb has. Seems to me, the Redskins have no real deep threat receiver. The current receivers run alot of slants and short ranged passes and are generally small by league standards. Looking at Mcnabb, he throws one of the prettiest deep balls in the game, but his biggest weakness, and it showed in the Cowboys games at the end of the season, is he is terrible at the intermediate routes. He floats alot of these over the receivers head or just overall is not on the mark. This issue alone is why they wont win immediately. Now, if they go out and get Marshall or a deep threat, then we may have to start paying close attention.

Put the pipe down crackhead.


LJ sucks, Portis sucks, and so does Not So Fast Willie Parker. Super Bowl run? You MUST be high. They still don't have an O Line, or a defense, or any receivers worth a shit. Yeah, they're going to the SB alright! they will be lucky to win 8 games... You heard it here first...

Like the radio said today how cool would it be to see them sign Flozell now?

Two division rival players signed with meh results at the end of the year is what I think would come of it...

Would make for good TV during the year though.
