Donovan McNabb: Is It Possible for the Quarterback to Be Too Nice?
Donovan McNabb Is Under Fire In Washington, But Does He Need To Stand Up For Himself?
In high school, do you remember the kid who wanted to be friends with everybody?
You know what I'm talking about, the one person who just didn't make waves, smiled all of the time and never stood up for himself when he was taken advantage of? Well that person is Donovan McNabb.
McNabb has gone through a lot in his career. He has been constantly criticized from all angles, sometimes unjustly and he just smiles, says the right thing and moves on with his life. When he was benched in favor of Rex Grossman, he just stood there on the sidelines and took it.
He also took it when Terrell Owens called him out in Philadelphia. At some point, you have to stand up for yourself and demand some respect. McNabb may not be the most accomplished quarterback in the league, but let's not act like he's Brett Favre, dropping back with his arm hanging out of the socket either.
According to Britt McHenry, a sports reporter for the local ABC affiliate, tweeted that McNabb didn't say much after John Beck talked about approaching this year as the starter.
#mcnabb says he didn't hear Becks comments. Added "I'm not bothered by (criticism). Some reason everyone wants to talk about the quiet guy."
It's time for McNabb to stop being the nice guy and ruffle a few feathers. He has to command some respect as a veteran quarterback and a guy who has been to a Super Bowl. The Redskins have done him wrong, yet somehow, he refuses to do anything about it.
I just wish that once, McNabb would tell the media how he really feels about the situation. Maybe then people wouldn't continue to push him around.
Yet, McNabb will let this slide and the Redskins will part ways with him at some point before the season, whenever that is.
Then we'll repeat this process all over again once he shows the slightest sign of struggle at his next destination, and it's a shame for someone as classy as McNabb has been, to have to go through this.
