Say What?!

Word came down yesterday from the Philadelphia Eagles that they traded QB Donovan McNabb to their NFC East rivals, the Washington Redskins. Rumors were floating around since the season ended that one of the Eagles' QBs would be traded/let go and all signs pointed to McNabb. It's still a shock, though, that would trade him within the division. I think it would have made more sense to trade him somewhere else, like the NFC West, where all the teams were interested. It would have been awesome for him to play for the Arizona Cardinals because he owns a house here and I maybe would have rooted for them.

McNabb is leaving behind a legacy in Philly even though he nvr won a Super Bowl. He has winning records against the other three NFC East teams and has started more games than any current QB besides Peyton Manning. He also leaves with a 86 QB rating. I just hope that McNabb will be able to turn the Redskins into a winning team and show the Eagles what they're losing, especially since they're starting Kevin Kolb, who sucks, and not Michael Vick.

I'm not the only one who thinks the Eagles are stupid for letting McNabb go. Ex-Eagle and current Broncos player, Brian Dawkins, thinks so too: NFL Blog: Eagles made mistake trading McNabb
