After being a mainstay in Philly for years, Donovan was traded away to a division rival, the Washington Redskins.
The fan backlash was loud and angry, with many having no faith in Kevin Kolb's ability.
DC natives had a renewed sense of hope with Mike Shanahan replacing Jim Zorn and McNabb replacing Jason Campbell behind center.
However, Redskins fans were in for a rude awakening.
Not counting his rookie season, this is by far the worst year of Donovan's career.
McNabb only has only one multi-touchdown game, but he also threw three interceptions in that same game.
The string of disappointments reached a boiling point in a loss to the Detroit Lions. With the game on the line in the closing minutes of the fourth quarter, McNabb was benched in favor of Rex Grossman.
Yes, the same inept Rex Grossman who was a pick machine with the Chicago Bears.
Rex would quickly fumble, leading to a defensive touchdown that sealed the win for the Lions.
