The Philadelphia Eagles made a major change to their organization Sunday night, trading QB Donovan McNabb to the Washington Redskins for several draft picks.

The Eagles will receive a second round draft pick in this month's upcoming NFL draft, as well as two picks in next year's draft.

"I'm really excited about my future with the Washington Redskins," said McNabb Sunday night.  "I'm eager to work with Coach [Mike] Shanahan. He's been a very successful coach with a couple of Super Bowl victories on his resume. While it has been my goal to win a Super Bowl in Philadelphia, we came up short. I enjoyed my 11 years, and know we shared a lot more good times than bad."

At 33 years old, McNabb certainly seems to be on the downside of his career.  However, his numbers last year were impressive; 3,553 yards passing, 22 touchdowns, 10 interceptions and a passer rating of 92.9.

The Redskins still have not addressed the real issues they have though, which is their terrible offensive line.  If McNabb starts (which he likely will) he will be running for his life like Jason Campbell did last year, unless they can acquire some quality offensive linemen.

This seems like more of the same for the Redskins, big name player, over 30 years old, starting all over again at the quarterback position, not addressing offensive line issues.

We will have to simply wait until September to see if this was a good move for Washington.
