We can never close the book on a high-profile NFL transaction without considering the perspective of Deion Sanders.
And Deion has spoken.
In a Thursday night appearance on NFL Network, Deion compares the trade of Donovan McNabb from the Eagles to the Redskins to the “Herschel Walker shibacle.”
Yes, shibacle. (Sheil Kapadia of philly.com spells it with an “o”.) The next linguistic development presumably will come when Emmitt Smith converts the term into the verb form, “to shibacle.”
Sanders eventually calls the move the “dumbest trade ever.”
Later in the spot, Deion uses the term “debacle,” which makes us think that maybe he was intentionally combining the word “sh-t” and “debacle.” If so, well played, Deion. Well played.
