    Vick has no shot to be the starter.

    I think ya’ll have an overinflated view of McNabb’s current ability. He’s most decidedly in decline. Still an above average – good QB, but no longer great.
    In his last few games last season he looked decidedly ordinary to not so good (especially against Dallas), despite having the best set of young receivers he’s ever had.
    He has trouble in the RedZone and with the short/intermediate throws overall and no longer possesses the escapability he once had.
    The fact that the Eagles were not afraid to send him somewhere they will have to face him 2x/yr shows that they don’t think he’s all that much of a threat anymore.
    I have NO idea why the Redskins did this, the only plausible reason is they have some kind of deal cooked up with St Louis to flip 1st round picks + McNabb? At this point in their careers JC (whom they will try to trade , but his trade value just dropped two rounds because teams KNOW the Redskins want to get rid of him) is not any worse than McNabb and he’s a good deal younger. Now they have two QBs on one year deals (McNabb is a UFA in 2011 and so is Campbell) and they’ll have to chose and chose quickly by throwing large amounts of money at one or the other (presumably McNabb). Not that the Redskins have been shy about blowing wads of cash on ‘name’ players in their 30′s in the past. Just doesn’t make sense to me. Do the Redskins really think they can contend this year and next before McNabb rides off into the sunset with more of ‘The Danny’s’ millions?
    As a Cowboys fan I like this deal. It weakens the primary rival the Eagles (who are taking a HUGE risk that Kolb is ready), and it means the Redskins will continue to be populated by over 30, past their prime FAs. Will they be better than last year? Sure, but that isn’t saying much, is it? I keep hearing about their ‘top 10 defense’ but that was a 4-3 and they are switching that to a 3-4, so the jury will be out (unless they run that rumored 4-2-5 which should have Barber/Jones/Choice licking their chops) on how good they will be the next 2 years while they change personnel to match the 3-4.
    Certainly will make life in the Beast interesting next season. I look forward to it.

    Well I hope that all the haters are happy , they got what they wanted, now no more complaining!
    I thank Donovan for the past 11 yrs. he made this team a consistantly viable contender in the nfl. It wasn’t always great and we fell short of the goal of a superbowl, which ultimately he is and was judged by, But thanks for the Ride Donovan!
    Good Luck !

    Donovan did have a good group of young receivers. They are burners – who moves the chains? No one. We saw what happened when Dallas put the lock on the deep ball and Philly’s offense couldn’t move the ball. Forget the fact that their Def couldn’t do anything either – oh yeah McNabb plays Safety too.
    Dude this is ridiculous!!!! McNabb is still a very good QB – one who made a team relevant with subpar skill position talent for most of his career. For one year he had a stud WR and went to the SB.
    If the Eagles wanted to win, they should have traded for Boldin to do the dirty work with the “young” receivers, drafted a Safety, signed an every down back (like Chester Taylor), and went after Kampman (spelling?) or someone who can be disruptive opposite Trent Cole,

    its just a matter of time that jason campbell is a raider in another excellent move by the greatest mind in football Mr Davis. He fooled all you media people from the start. Jason is a way better QB than mcnabb. Look at his stats last year and half of the time he was running for his life. Raiders knew how to get the redskins to bite on Mcnabb to free up the real star out of all this Jason Cambell.

    The idea that Vick has a chance to outperform Kolb and become the starter is the silliest thing I have ever heard.
    Vick’s chance to become the starter are limited to Kolb getting hurt. And that is only if the Eagles do not sign another QB experienced in the WC offense as a backup.

    At no point during your mindless, incoherant rambling did you say anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may god have mercy on your soul.

    Perhaps you can come up with your own material, rather than stealing lines from Adam Sandler and passing them off as your own. Douche.
