we had to deal with McNabb for 11 YEARS! don't get me wrong.. he was great the first few years.. he was dynamic.. exciting to watch and was a WINNER !

then all the drama happened.. Rush Limbaugh's comments seemed to have affected him.. he was more worried about being labeled a 'typical Black QB' that he refused to run .. without his dynamic escape-ability .. McNabb is an average QB.. Then his backhanded sly comments towards the fans/blaming others/constantly emphasizing he's a leader.. etc..

When the Eagles traded him .. the National consensus was Philly Fans are a bunch of ingrates/clueless fans..

Now.. only after half a season.. Coach Shanahan realized what Philly fans have been complaining about for the past 5/6 years:
* He's inaccurate
* Throws at the feet
* Does not have the touch
* Unable to throw to a spot
* Unable to hit his receivers in stride
* Unable to complete a quick slant
* Holds on to the ball too long
* Only passes to WRs who are wide open (why his interception ratio is bogus/deceiving)
* Unable to decipher defenses
* Too sensitive
* Unable to run the 2-minute offense
* and that annoying 'poor me' attitude
* etc..

now the Redskins fans know what we were going through .. lol !

you hit the nail on its head. mcnabb has some issues but compared to what the redskins have had in the past couple of years, i think its an improvement. for the eagles it was a good move and for the redskins it was a great move. redskins have already matched their last year win streak mostly because of mcnabb. but mcnabb is only a temporary

It was a stupid move to bench Mcnabb especially for Rex Grossman. There is absolutely NO excuse for it.

Rush Limbaugh was briefly hired by ESPN as a commentator back in 04 I believe. He pretty much said Mcnabb was overrated by the media and the NFL because of the public desire for a black QB

Look it up for the exact words but it was the typical Rush Limbaugh stuff.

but the thing that i love about mcnabb is that he is a pretty down to earth guy. he doesn't seem to seek out attention like t.o. or ochocinco. i know he's not the best quarterback but he is 100% better than grossman!

of course.. he's a QB .. but don't get it twisted.. he's a Diva .. which was part of the problem he had with TO when they were with the Eagles.. McNabb got angry because TO was stealing the spotlight..

McNabb is an undercover Diva.. he cares & worries about his public image.. Philly fans have a more in-depth knowledge about his character/personality.. which is why Philly fans get so irate when he fakes that "Mr. Company" personality on National TV ..

McNabb, his father, and mother were all upset at Philadelphia when Jeff Garcia took over for McNabb during his injury.. The McNabbs were upset at Philly fans because:
1. Jeff Garcia was doing well
2. they felt it was a slight against McNabb because Philly fans were rooting for Jeff Garcia
(and no.. i am not exaggerating.. she was quoted for both comments)

It was so bad that McNabb had to put out a comment for his parents.. !

That was not the only time.. there were plenty others..

Lastly.. when McNabb was traded to the Redskins.. Papa McNabb compared McNabb's trade to the resurrection of Jesus Christ ..

It's an accumulation of many things that McNabb and his family have done.. that have turned off Philly fans..

McNabb has that 'Im a victim' mentality.. it's so annoying.. When he's on National TV.. he tries to persuade the National Audience of how good of a guy he is .. it's all fake..


Is Rex Grossman better than McNabb? No... but the difference is not that great.. Not to mention.. McNabb is unable to run the 2-minute offense.. Coach Shannahan is no dummy..

Shanny said he didn't have the stamina for the two minute drill. I was also surprised, though.
