McNabb Moved to the Redskins

By Ta-Nehisi Coates

It's not clear that the Eagles will regret sending Donovan McNabb to the Redskins. McNabb could, as some of you have suggested, be on the downslide of his career. Maybe 92.9 QB rating simply isn't what it used to be. I don't know.


But I think if I were an Eagle fan, I would not have wanted to find out. Donovan McNabb, who was booed when he was drafted for not being Rickey Williams, has every reason and motivation to go into Philly next year and maul the Eagles next season. Yeesh. Trading the guy in the division? I'd rather keep him another year.
