After the latest benching of Donovan McNabb, it is safe to say that this relationship is over.
You know the one where we watched our division neighbor date a QB for a while. After our neighbor tried, and tried and tried to go all the way, he realized he never would. So the Redskins came a calling and traded two very important draft picks for Donovan McNabb.
My initial reaction on the evening of Easter Sunday was one of confusion. I asked myself, like many Redskins fans, if we are rebuilding, then why are we trading for McNabb? Well eventually I learned to accept it, and just hope for the best.
Well a year later, they hopefully are finally rebuilding. In the NFL, it only takes a year or two to rebuild. So as long as Shanahan can hold on to his draft picks for now on, I believe in him as a head coach.
The national media is going to dance all over the Redskins because they love McNabb and because the team is a laughing stock at the moment. Oh well, we deserve it, this place is a tragic circus.
Here are ten reasons that Mike Shanahan has been embarrassing Donovan McNabb this season.
