Nope -- McNabb to the Redskins!

This literally makes no sense unless the Eagles are that truly down on McNabb to trade him within the division and face him twice. There is some hubris thinking they know him all too well that his flaws will be attacked during those games.

Easy for some Eagles fans to adjust their love-hate relationship into just plain hate, however.

Not so sure from the Redskins perspective. Bruce Allen's MO is definitely getting the veteran players rather than develop them and in some respects that is Shannahan's MO too. Mixed results for both of them and behind the Redskins' O-Line is Snyder-ball on steroids. It could work or it could fail like many experiments under Snyder's tenure and the latter careers of Allen and Shannahan.

Quote:
Donovan McNabb(notes) stood his ground against the Philadelphia Eagles for the second straight year. Now, the question is whether he’ll get his revenge.

After being told last month that the Eagles would not deal him to NFC East-rival Washington, McNabb essentially forced Philadelphia’s hand by refusing to talk with any of the other teams that had expressed interest in recent weeks. In the process, McNabb can now take out his simmering anger on the Eagles’ front office that essentially forced him out of a city where he had played his entire career.

A little of the reason for the Skins getting McNabb maybe?

There is no doubt that McNabb basically had the say in where he wanted to go. There is no way they would want to trade him inside the division if they did not have to/were not forced to. Also, just listening to Reid's press conference he said something like "we did what was in Donovan's best interest" which basically means they were nice to him and did not send him to Oakland or Buffalo because he did not want to go there.

Weren't there reports on a preference to go to Minnesota? Consider the Vikings are better than the Eagles, I think maybe giving him to the Redskins who are now going back to veteran quick fix than rebuilding shows a lot of hubris on the Eagles part in many respects.
