Donovan McNabb says he would have played for the Raiders

A week ago, the Raiders reportedly were the frontrunners to land quarterback Donovan McNabb.  After he unexpectedly landed in Washington, reports emerged (both from Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports and Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer) that McNabb made it clear that he didn’t want to go to Oakland.  Cole reported that McNabb threatened to retire.

Not so, McNabb now says.

Asked by Ryen Rusillo on ESPN Radio’s The Scott VanPelt Show what McNabb would have done if shipped to the East side of the Bay, the eleven-year veteran had this to say, per Jerry McDonald of InsideBayArea.com:  “I would have been at the workouts and working out with the team,
throwing and trying to get the timing down with the corps of receivers
and running backs they have and communicated with the offensive line to
get ready for minicamp.”

McNabb then laughed about his threat to retire if traded to the Raiders.

“This is the problem with some of these so-called key analysts and these
smart guys out there who go by ‘sources,'” McNabb said.  “So many people listen to
different sources ‘close to’ the individual, but never the individual,
saying that I would have not showed up in Oakland, I would have been
upset.”

But, you see, McNabb’s explanation confirms the value of leaks from sources “close to” the subject of the news.  Sources “close to” McNabb can get a certain message out to the media, and McNabb then retains plausible deniability, since he was never the source.

Besides, with McNabb saying nothing, those “key analysts and smart guys” had to look somewhere for information.  But McNabb is basically saying that Cole and McLane flat-out made up their stories.

McNabb knows how to work the media — one of the things he has most in common with his former head coach in Philly.  Regardless of whether McNabb never would have gone to Oakland, he never will admit it now.  Really, what does he have to gain from that approach?  There could be a day when he wants to continue to play pro football and no one but the Raiders wants him.  Thus, there’s no reason to engage in a public bridge burning.

We’re not saying we don’t believe McNabb.  We’re only saying that we don’t expect him to say anything other than what he said, regardless of whether he had no real desire to play for the Raiders — or whether he was simply hoping to steer the trade toward a team like the Redskins.

    Who cares hes a Redskin and hes happy thats all that matters

  2. Raider3:16 says: Apr 8, 2010 9:16 PM

    Of course you are doubting him. If you didn’t then you would have to admit you your “we print anything ” reporting.

  3. Mooch says: Apr 8, 2010 9:16 PM

    The defensiveness and passive aggressiveness is starting already.
    Gonna be a long season for Skins fans if ANYTHING goes wrong, or if he is questioned or held accountable for anything.

  4. dogma1 says: Apr 8, 2010 9:17 PM

    Who cares? It’s over, he is a Redskin

  5. Bwa Ha Ha says: Apr 8, 2010 9:17 PM

    They took the best deal on the table

  6. DanSnyder says: Apr 8, 2010 9:19 PM

    Does anyone blame him? I understand if mcnabb didn’t want to play for the raiders, I think this would be a bigger deal if say he didnt want to play for the redskins and picked the raiders over them.
    Seymor didn’t want to play with the raiders but he had no choice. I’m quite sure if he had a choice of teams the raiders would not be the one he would have went to.

  7. Uncle Leo says: Apr 8, 2010 9:19 PM

    Don’t worry Florio, when he says “key analysts and these smart guys”, he is not referring to you.

  8. RayDaMayor says: Apr 8, 2010 9:20 PM

    McNabb is full of shit …. easy to say now.

    Give Donovan a break..he hasn’t went crying to Greta Van Sustern or anything like that, why is everyone persectuing HIM?

  13. Junior says: Apr 8, 2010 9:25 PM

    A few ways to look at this:
    1. McNabb is telling the truth. And really, unless you know him personally, there is no reason not to believe him.
    2. He’s lying to as Florio puts it, not burn any bridges. He didn’t want to go to Oakland.
    3. He or his agent were the source, trying to gain leverage and the Raiders didn’t have as much interest as stated.
    There are other possibilites too, but either way, cue the haters who will say, “of course he will say that now…” Like any of you know what McNabb thinks or feels. Anyone who claims they do needs to back off the pipe… and stop smoking pot too.

  14. Slow Joe says: Apr 8, 2010 9:26 PM

    LOL@ Uncle Leo

  15. oh the usual says: Apr 8, 2010 9:27 PM

    two things about this story:
    1) a writer could you know…not write a story when they do not have reliable information, unless they want to flat out say that their information is not reliable. saying that the player is lying here to save his own ass when the information was all hearsay anyway is kind of irresponsible.
    2) what is mcnabb supposed to say here? if he says he prefers any team, then it will be twisted that he does not want to go to the other teams. if he says he does not like a team, then he is a diva. we always want the athletes to quietly go about their business until it meets our agenda. then, if we want to hear from them, they are manipulaters when they do that. the double standard that athletes are held to is flat out wrong.
    i usually take up for the writers…but to blame mcnabb for getting a story about him wrong, when he blatantly says he never aimed to do what the media says he aimed to do is nothing but trying to save face. give it up.

  16. mjk68 says: Apr 8, 2010 9:27 PM

    A source close to McNabb says he’s full of shit.

  17. raiderrob21 says: Apr 8, 2010 9:28 PM

    Give it up Gloryhole!
    We tell you all the time your sources are BS!!!
    All this site does is post RUMORS! Couldas, wouldas, and shouldas.
    Playing for the Redskins is a better situation than playing for the Raiders? NOT! Jason Campbell is/was a better QB than Russell. QB was not the problem in DC. QB was the problem in Oakland. Campbell was getting crushed weekly. McNabb is gonna change that? NO WAY! He would have been better off in Oakland, better supporting cast and weaker division.
    The skins with Mcnabb and Shannahan are NOTHING in that division but LAST PLACE!
    I must say your envy of the Raiders is nice to see on a daily basis Gloryhole. But you and your “sources” are always way off!

  20. theTRUTHwillSETuFREE says: Apr 8, 2010 9:35 PM

    Once again, your overall hate for the Raiders makes you and your colleagues look like complete jack asses. Why not for once just admit you were dead wrong. What NFL player would walk away from 11mil at his age? I understand that the Raiders are your meal ticket Florio. Their posts generate the most feedback out of any Team in the NFL on this site. But come on, their making you look bad this year. I have not seen 1 accurate report come out of PFT about the Raiders this off-season.

  21. chadgoy says: Apr 8, 2010 9:38 PM

    Okay Florio, I don’t get it. You repeat a story some other writer reports, from sources other than McNabb. Then, once again, when “McNabb” clears up the air and states from his own mouth that he would have played for the Raiders, all you have to say is that he’s a liar, just working the press, and that you trust your sources…??? What kind of news reporting is this? I know it’s a rumor mill, really, but when your rumor gets busted by the person themself, all you have to say is “he’s a liar.” Wow, no wonder all you’re in charge of is rumors, instead of factual reporting. Of course McNabb wasn’t saying anything, because there wasn’t anything to say. Keep grasping those straws Florio, keep grasping.

  22. Jethro Marx says: Apr 8, 2010 9:39 PM

    One thing I agree with is, he’s absolutely correct about your ilk, Florio. Your profession uses phrases like “a source close to ____ tells me that” or “I’m hearing rumblings” that so and so is dissatisfied with his contract, or so and so wants a trade, or so and so wants to trade for McNabb. You know where I believe those rumblings come from (mostly)? Your asses.

  23. chadgoy says: Apr 8, 2010 9:42 PM

    BREAKING NEWS (from a trusted source so it HAS TO BE TRUE): MIKE FLORIO AND GREG ROSENTHALL LINKED IN GAY MIDGET PORN RING. SOURCES CLOSE TO FLORIO CONFIRM REPORT.

  24. JSpicoli says: Apr 8, 2010 9:43 PM

    Like he would have sabotaged his career and turned down 11 million to play in oak for a team with a better record than the deadskins.
    Remember when Florio was relevant and printed his own stories and not ones I saw 15 minutes ago on ESPN?

  25. INVAIDUH says: Apr 8, 2010 9:43 PM

    Mcnabb and/or his agent clearly threatened to not show up from camp and play for the Raiders…Mcnabb has worked the media for years – he was a communications major. Remember the whole Pam Oliver story about wanting out from the Eagles that he then denied, causing Oliver to get upset?

  27. SFrancis1680 says: Apr 8, 2010 9:45 PM

    “We’re not saying we don’t believe McNabb. We’re only saying that we don’t expect him to say anything other than what he said”…boy that’s a relief, McNabb WONDERING whether or not FLORIO believes him

    Yeahright…BS thy name is Donovan.

  29. spliffbunker says: Apr 8, 2010 9:51 PM

    more confirmation that 98% of what we read about the NFL these days is worthless drivel..

  30. jskins10 says: Apr 8, 2010 9:53 PM

    raiderrob21, I seem to recall one of only 4 wins for the skins last year was trashing your “better supporting cast”. Trust me, NOBODY envies the Raiders….
    How many Redskins games did you watch last year? If you think so highly of JC how about Old Al gives us a 2nd rounder for him…

  31. TheVulture says: Apr 8, 2010 9:54 PM

    Who can blame him? The Raiders are a disaster.

  32. buzzbissinger says: Apr 8, 2010 9:54 PM

    “Besides, with McNabb saying nothing, those “key analysts and smart guys” had to look somewhere for information. But McNabb is basically saying that Cole and McLane flat-out made up their stories.”
    Yo, Florholio, maybe you (and your media peers) have been manipulated by McNabb releasing a little disinformation to certain parties “close to” him.
    Ever think of that? Don’t belive everything you read on the internet.

  33. Fan of Football says: Apr 8, 2010 9:55 PM

    Sure McNabb had no problems playing for the Raiders. I also have a bridge to sell ya.

  34. SlickWillyBelichick says: Apr 8, 2010 9:56 PM

    I hope he sticks it to the Eagles twice this year. The one year they gve him a WR he takes them to the Super Bowl. Desean Jackson…good reciever but most of alot of his big plays come from busted scrambles made possible by Mcnabb and he gets free deep…he should keep his trap shut

  35. Floriosadouchebag says: Apr 8, 2010 9:56 PM

    No matter what team McNabb would have went to, it’s a shame that the front-running Philly fans, like Lowell Rikert, never game him the respect that he deserved.

  36. 1NationRaiderNation says: Apr 8, 2010 9:58 PM

    once again PFT’s version of believe it or not.

  37. snnyjcbs says: Apr 8, 2010 9:58 PM

    I know, she really wanted to go out with me it is just she had to do her hair, lol You people kill me with just how far you will stoop to try and save a little face.
    No one is bringing that up now, he did not have to say a word about it but he did. All you have to do is look who put it out there. The Yahoo clown that wrote all the bull regarding Hanson and Cable. It all turned out to be nothing but bull.
    Last, as a Raider fan I wish McNabb well with his new team. But I am not sitting up nights that he is not a Raider. I was sitting up nights in prayer when he was in play praying the Raiders interest was false. He was not going to help the Raiders in the long hall and they need to find a young QB to lead the team forward.

  38. raidersteve413 says: Apr 8, 2010 10:04 PM

    Mcnabb wishes he could of went to the raiders, thats the only place he would of had a shot to win a superbowl. Bruce gradkowski is way better than mcnabb anyway

  39. WhoDey_Man says: Apr 8, 2010 10:05 PM

    would u wanna play in oakland? sorry raider nation, i truly sympathize. don’t worry freddy krueger will die soon enough.

  41. Buckyball says: Apr 8, 2010 10:09 PM

    McNabb really screwed up with the Oliver thing back in the day. Apparently everyone except him seemed to know that she just parroted whatever her interviewee said. He was thinking he could gauge the reaction he might get from a “trade me or extend my contract” ploy not reazlizing she would say he was the one that said it.
    Between mama Wilma, papa Sam, and brother Sean and “unauthorized” entries on Yardbarker he manages to say whatever he wants to and then claim he had nothing to do with it. It’s been like that since the 2003 thumb injury / Rush Limbaugh thing.

  42. chiefsfan43 says: Apr 8, 2010 10:22 PM

    Who cares, He is not going to win nothing with Washington. They are a mess. They have terrible Wrs, no oline, and bums at rb. (portis and johnson. Not to mention the biggest reason why they suck, Snider….Mcnabb will be in a retirment home before they win anything at all.

  43. bucc19 says: Apr 8, 2010 10:24 PM

    When Donovan calls up Dallas and gives them all the info on the Eagles offense, then we can bash him..oh wait, everyone does that though right? So it’s OK..never mind.

  44. MagicMan407 says: Apr 8, 2010 10:28 PM

    LOL @ the Raiders have a better supporting cast than the Redskins. It’s a bunch of guy’s who DON’T WANT TO PLAY FOR THEM! Dude the team got trashed by back ups and practice squad guys. They allowed TONS of sakcs that game and the one guy who doesnt want to workout or act like he wants to be a Redskins Haynesworth didn’t even play that game. At no point was the Raiders ahead of the Redskins.

  45. TheToolofTools says: Apr 8, 2010 10:29 PM

    Hell I’m a Raiders fan and I don’t blame him for not wanting to be a part of our train wreck.
    He’s in a contract year and unless he got extended, to protest his future….
    HELL TO THE NO !
    I know one thing though.. JAM RUSS is something
    Al is going to have to get over, not we fans.
    Raidernation is now full of landmines waiting to go off.
    We went from Proud to Pathetic.
    That is the real deal.
    God bless Fred Biletnikoff as we know he is going through a very tough time after the death of his daughter.

  46. CanadianVikingFan says: Apr 8, 2010 10:29 PM

    He’s lying, but he doesn’t want to hurt the Raider’s feelings. Not even Raider fans would want to play for the Raiders, going there is out of necessity, like needing a pay check or two, not because you want to be there.

  47. trickbunny says: Apr 8, 2010 10:34 PM

    “This is the problem with some of these so-called key analysts and these smart guys out there who go by ‘sources,'” McNabb said.
    Sounds like he’s talking about a certain website. :)

    “There could be a day when he wants to continue to play pro football and no one but the Raiders wants him. Thus, there’s no reason to engage in a public bridge burning.”
    What a contradiction! So hes lying that he doesnt want to play for the Raiders but he doesnt want to say anything bad in case he wants to play for the Raiders? Your retarded Florio.
    The Foreskins suck more then the Raiders do, hence the 4-12 record and 4th over all draft pick.
    My unnamed sources say Florio is gay, and takes it in the ass from Jamarcus Russel wearing his chain.

    There are too many people that have access to the media that just flat out lie. That’s if the person writing the story isn’t just making it up. For along time, it hasn’t mattered if the story is true. Make something up to stir the pot and get the story spread around. Absence of malice was the beginning of the end. Now it’s just BS stories. Believe the hacks if you want. Buyer beware!

  53. dcrespo24 says: Apr 8, 2010 11:15 PM

    Florio, Florio, Florio,
    Do you even see how stupid your tautological reasoning is on this?
    You are basically saying “of course he is saying he would have played for the Raiders even though he didn’t want to, just in case later on he has to.”
    Do you even read what you write? Is it that hard for you to take a man at his word? Must you try to spin the story as if the subject of the story is not an adult that can think and speak for himself?
    Why are you such a Raider hater? Did a Raider fan take your lunch money as a kid or something? Or is it simply because nearly every story you write about the Raiders ends up being wrong?
    P.S. Seymour says hello.
    P.P.S. Read the CBA one day, your legal acumen is in serious question.

  54. dabarber says: Apr 8, 2010 11:42 PM

    Well, if he is playing for the crappy Skins he would surely play for the Radiers.

  55. jordan4440 says: Apr 9, 2010 12:14 AM

    Florio you are a joke. Get a real story in here. If one is not available then just don’t write anything. Tell your boys the same thing. By the way enough with Donovan McNabb. He is a great QB who has been amazing in his career. Leave the guy alone already!

  56. tatum32 says: Apr 9, 2010 12:55 AM

    He’d have a much better chance in Washington, but the owner’s style is similar to Al’s….spend, dont develop team chemistry in anyway and switch out coaches……McNabb will see.

  57. Shaun Lowrie says: Apr 9, 2010 2:17 AM

Then on some 3rd Down use Darius and increase the use of Kliensauser at FB with more Shancoe plays and your better than last year. With a Wildcat in the NFC Championship Farve would already be retired with another ring and a Grandpa at home. Instead the NFL executuives get the Greatest Show on Earth back for one More year and Farve becomes the First over 40 Grandpa to Win a Superbowl then Retire Hell be with his Daughter and Grandbaby on the Field at Superbowl Victory! Tops this years Baby on the Field and is remembered as one of the ALL TIME greatest NFL moments! You heard it hear 1st! Mason222 on twitter,

    skins and raiders are equally dysfunctional. i dont see the point of wanting to go to one and refusing to go to the other. daniel snyder IS al davis. who da fock wants to play or coach in washington or oakland? mcnabb and his daddy referring to himself as john elway and jesus christ all in the same week was priceless. andy reid is a genius.

  60. Raiders757 says: Apr 9, 2010 8:32 AM

    DanSnyder says: April 8, 2010 9:19 PM
    Does anyone blame him? I understand if mcnabb didn’t want to play for the raiders, I think this would be a bigger deal if say he didnt want to play for the redskins and picked the raiders over them.
    Seymor didn’t want to play with the raiders but he had no choice. I’m quite sure if he had a choice of teams the raiders would not be the one he would have went to.
    —————————————————
    How would it be a bigger deal if he went to the Raiders over the Redskins. You seem to forget, he didn’t “pick” the Redskins. The Redskins picked him by offering the best deal on the table. Of course the situation is ideal for McNabb, because he probably doesn’t have to move his family, depending on where they live. It’s laughable to say it would have been a “big deal”, as the Redskins are no better than the Raiders right now. Your team isn’t all that special to make such a claim.
    Then you still want to believe that Seymor didn’t want to play for the Raiders, despite the words that came out of the mans mouth. If he didn’t, he wouldn’t have signed a new contract with the team. People like you are a joke. You believe what you want to believe, and refuse to believe what the actual players say, because it doesn’t fit your agenda.
    Same goes to Florio and the other hacks that kept dragging the Raiders through the mud for absolutely no reason. Now that the truth is out, and your back peddling, still trying to claim you were right all along. In the end, all of you the hack reporters and haters were proven wrong. Take it like a man and just admit it instead of trying to make excuses.
    McNabb said he would have played for the Raiders. It’s just that simple. There no underlying reason, as he’s a Redskin now and has no reason to do any damage control. If he really didn’t want to, he would say it. Get a grip people.

  61. KCRaiderDan says: Apr 9, 2010 8:37 AM

    From the Article,”Besides, with McNabb saying nothing, those “key analysts and smart guys” had to look somewhere for information.”
    Why do they have to say anything? They don’t HAVE TO LOOK SOMEWHERE…They could just keep their F%cking mouths shut unless they have facts to report.
    I swear there is no real journalism left in the world, only editorials and opinions passed as fact.
    Of course Florio disagrees with McNabb, he was one of the guys McNabb was talking about. He’s just too lazy and scared to state his own opinion so he uses other people’s to keep his “plausible deniability”.
    Stay Classy

    …and you have factual evidence to back this up? Please show it to us, all knowing football fan. I would like to see this.
    I hate to tell you this, but your wrong, and I have evidence to back my claim up. The words of McNabb himself. he has no reason to “work the media” in this situation.
    What a bunch whiny little babies the lot of you are. You can’t take it that you were wrong and want to use unproven theories as a form of denial. Get over yourselves. You guy hung your hats on unnamed sources and stabs in the dark. In the end, you were wrong.

  63. HarrisonHits says: Apr 9, 2010 9:10 AM

    “we’re not saying we don’t believe McNabb.”
    I will. He’s lying through his teeth. The only players who want to actually play for the Raiders are the ones that have no other NFL opportunities. Davis is a horrendously bad owner and needs to go. Until he does the Raiders will always be bottom feeders.

  64. joetoronto says: Apr 9, 2010 9:13 AM

    Everybody chill, Florio is merely stirring the pot.
    Think about it, what fan base in all of sports WORLDWIDE, is bigger and more passionate than the Raider Nation?
    Like it or not, there isn’t one.
    So if it’s YOU that operates this site, which lives off hits, what fan base do YOU chose to keep things going?
    The Raider Nation.

  65. boysroll says: Apr 9, 2010 9:29 AM

    who cares. JC to me is a better QB. what has mcslab done anyway except lose all the big games and get spanked 3 times last yr by my boys.
    it is pretty obvious that the eagles feel the guys skills have diminished and by the way he played last yr i agree. He looked horrid against some really bad teams and when he played my boys was embarassed.
    another great move by the raiders…i mean 4skin org. LMAO. They will pay him a huge extension too.

  68. myeaglescantwin says: Apr 9, 2010 9:43 AM

    DONNY will say anything to look good in the media’s eyes. I dont think he woulda retired though, he likes gettin 8 figures to be at the middle of the pack. If you could get paid 10 million for mediocrity you would.
    He’s in Washington and he’s happy. he’s in washington and the PHILLY PHANS ARE HAPPY. i just wish we coulda shipped him to oakland for AWESOME-ugha. but Al Davis screwed that up with his kagillion dollar contract. if picked up Awesome-ugha, he woulda made more $ than all our other starting DB’s combined

  69. Mooch says: Apr 9, 2010 9:46 AM

    “When Donovan calls up Dallas and gives them all the info on the Eagles offense, ”
    Here was the Eagles 2009 passing attack with McNabb…
    1) Snap ball
    2) Wait for DeSean to break loose
    3) Hold ball
    4) Hold ball
    5) Hold ball
    6) Take sack
    Repeat twice more, say “go get ‘em” to punter.
    A similar offense was used by Neil O’Donnell when he was with the Jets.

    How about the Raiders were never as interested as the “Media” tried to make out. Think about it – If the Raiders were really offering up there 2 round pick why would the Eagles trade in there division to move up only a few spots. They were never really pushing for him. This was just a very bad trade by the Eagles and they know it. That is why they are trying to push this lame a$$ story know about them tading McNabb to bloke the Redskins from drafting a QB.

    As usual Florio, you in bred retard, you missed the point of McNabb’s statement. He came right out and said that idiots like you who engage in rumors and listen to anyone other than the athletes themselves are salivating dogs waiting for someone to ring the bell. With any luck you’ve already been neutered and others learn from your ignorance and stupidity. Didn’t you used to work for the National Enquirer? Then they fired your sorry ass for giving them a picture of your mother that you were passing off as a picture of sasquatch?

    I don’t belive McNabb for a second. It is easy to say that now but you know he was whining to the organization behind closed doors. McNabb will never get over his biggest problem on the field, he has no heart.

    Only reason he went to the Redskins was because that was the team with the highest bidder(draft pick) otherwise he would be wearing the Silver & Black.
    Straight and Simple.
    Highest bidder.

    I dont get how you come to these conclusions. Yes alot of people in the NFL say things in the media they are really doing something else. But some dont.
    Give me 1 example when it has been proven that Mcnabb was lying in the media. He is always upfront thats why there was so many dramas surrounding. Mcnabb is alot of things but he isnt a liar. I always believe what he says and I will continue to do that until he gives me a reason not too.
    Besides that anything Jason Cole says is an outright lie when it comes to the Eagles. There has been at least 3 different times that it has been proven that he was just making things up. That guy has no creditably and should take everything he says with a grain of salt.

    So what I’am gathering is that it’s OK for guys like Favre to LIE about everything, but not Mcnabb?

    I am confused, he is referring to the “source” , “da source”, Mike Lombardi’s unnamed soucre, the official “league source”, the source of the source, florios source, nancy gats source, tim kawakami’s source, Adam Schefters reliable source, or BSPN, or has plenty of “unamed sources” .
    Well at least we know one thing, when it comes to the raiders, we know all of these sources all have one thing in common….they don’t know jack, except lies, and hate.
    Gotta love the hate…believe it or not
