So Daniel Snyder brought in a big name during the offseason and it didn't work out, like that ever happens. The good news for 'Skins fans is that the lockout prevents Snyder from signing or trading for anyone at the moment, and maybe Washington will be more productive in the draft this season because of it.
As for McNabb, it looks like he will be playing for his third different team in the past three seasons, and many are speculating that he could eventually land in Minnesota, which once again will depend on how the chips fall in New York in a couple of weeks.
Some cry that McNabb never got a fair deal in Washington, but after 472 pass attempts and 15 interceptions compared to just 14 touchdowns, I'd say the Skins are justified in their search for a new quarterback.
McNabb will turn 35 during the 2011 season and although quarterbacks typically stay in the league longer than most, age is a concern for a quarterback like McNabb who relies so heavily on throwing the deep ball.
It will be interesting to see what the Skins get for McNabb. I'm guessing it won't be a lot, but Washington would be smart to move in a new and younger direction next season.
