Donovan McNabb goes from being benched and told he doesn't know the playbook, to signing a five-year contract extension earlier today.
When I first heard this news, I had to see it for myself. There was no way that the Redskins would be foolish enough to sign a guy like McNabb after already wasting money on Albert Haynesworth.
But here's the most interesting part of the whole thing—not only did owner Daniel Snyder get the extension done, but he gave McNabb $40 million guaranteed. That really got my eyebrows raised.One has to wonder what head coach Mike Shanahan said after he learned of the news.
The guy that benched McNabb can't be happy that he's going to have to deal with him for another five years, if he's around for that long.
While most will tell you that this is a bad move for the Washington Redskins, I'm going to give you 10 predictions for how this five-year contract and how his tenure will go as the quarterback of this team.
