McNabb appeared on ESPN's First Take this morning, and was asked if Baylor QB Robert Griffin III would be a good fit in the Redskins' offense. "No," was McNabb's response.
RGIII is expected to be selected No. 2 overall by the Redskins in the NFL draft behind the Colts' selection of Andrew Luck. Washington traded the farm to acquire the pick from St. Louis.
McNabb went on a bridge-burning interview when he said, “A lot of times ego gets too involved when it comes to being in Washington."
Click here for the rest of the interview, which features a lot of juicy stuff from McNabb. The former Eagles QB sounds like he researched this subject well before he went on a his rant against the Redskins and Shanahan.
McNabb may be right, but he also sounds like another aging jock firmly in denail about his eroding skills. But as biased as McNabb is about this team and this head coach, primarily because he was run out of town there, he has a point. Several of them.
Shanahan has never done much of anything since John Elway retired. A head coach not having success without a Hall of Fame quarterback is nothing new, but Shanahan's reputation has endured since that title won in 1998.
* In the 12 seasons Shanahan has been a head coach post Elway, he has been to the playoffs four times.
* Shanahan is 1-4 in those games.
* Shanahan has won at least 10 games in those 12 years four times.
* The last time he was in the playoffs was 2005.
And the train wreck mess that is the Washington Redskins football franchise under owner Dan Snyder is well documented, lamented and made fun of.
Now comes RGIII wearing his Superman socks to save what had been one of the NFL's greatest franchises.
When the Bengals drafted Andy Dalton out of TCU I feared for his professional football life because this organization has been a hell hole since the death of Paul Brown. They don't care.
The people in Washington do care, but they don't have a clue. Now comes another Texan kid to save a different franchise. For the sake of his new team, and his new head coach, he doesn't need to be Superman, just John Elway.
