Would you have any interest in him? I would. He took the Eagles to five more conference championships than the Chiefs went to during this past decade. He also played some of his best football ever during the second half of this season. Remember, he went to the Super Bowl the year he had a Pro Bowl-caliber target in Terrell Owens. This guy would tear it up with Dwayne Bowe and Tony Gonzalez. We’re talking career years for all three. Then if Michael Crabtree got drafted by the Chiefs — the rest of the league wouldn’t even want to see the trailer for that horror movie.
At 32, it just depends on what the Eagles want. Larry Johnson, a second-rounder and a conditional pick? Sure. The No. 3 pick? Get lost. Of course, all of this is contingent on McNabb asking for a trade, but his buddy Deion Sanders says he wants out. From Philly.com:
Deion Sanders, meanwhile, remained McNabb’s greatest defender and stuck by his story that the quarterback wants out of Philadelphia even though his only source seems to be himself. Sanders ripped Eagles fans at various points during the season, including after the Thanksgiving night game, when McNabb threw four touchdowns in a rout of the same Cardinals who are representing the NFC in Sunday’s Super Bowl.
“I don’t hate Philadelphia,” Sanders said. “I never said anything derogatory about Philadelphia. What I said about Philadelphia is that Donovan McNabb wants to leave. I think it’s a beautiful city, but it’s also a city that cheered when Michael Irvin was injured. That’s my thoughts about the athletic realm of Philadelphia. But I never said I hate the city. I think it’s a beautiful city.”
If it’s so beautiful, why does he think McNabb wants to leave?
“Maybe it’s because they booed him on draft day,” Sanders said. “Maybe it’s because they continuously doubt him when he’s taken them to four [actually five] NFC championship games. Maybe it’s because no matter what he does, it’s never enough. Maybe that’s the reason.”
This could get interesting. The good news is that with the plethora of options out there, Scott Pioli will, I repeat will, find a quarterback. No, I am not talking about looking down at the roster and realizing Tyler Thigpen is on it either. Personally, I’ll have to mull this over for a while, maybe wait until we hear more.
Addicts, any interest in McNabb if the price is right? Debate away…
