Was it a good trade???
Here’s Brian Berger’s thoughts on the Donovan McNabb trade to the Washington Redskins for the 37th pick overall and the 3rd and 4th pick next year.
I am a big fan of this deal. Clearly McNabb was getting traded To get one of the most valuable picks in the draft (37th) for a quarterback who is the last year of his contract, is about 7 or 8 (can’t remember) games over .500 the last 5 years and has missed 17 games in that same time period, well it’s a good deal. Plus they are receiving either a 3rd of a 4th round pick in the 2011 draft to boot.
I know there is going to be uproar about him being traded within the division, but I say, who cares? If you are trading a player, in any sport, why would you automatically eliminate a certain amount of teams that will do business with you? You are handicapping your team for potentially getting the best deal available. Look at what happened with the Blue Jays the Halladay this past summer. By refusing to do a deal with the Red Sox they traded him for a lesser package.
While this no question makes the skins better, does it really bring them from 4 wins to 10 and a potential playoff spot?
Also, the Eagles brass clearly has faith that Kolb is ready to step in and take over the reigns of the franchise for the next decade otherwise they don’t make this deal. It’s time for a new era to begin and with it the Eagles took the best deal available, even if it did mean doing business with a hated rival.
I know that my view is (most likely) in the minority, but I’d like to hear what other people have to say.
Trust me, this trailer is not an April Fools joke. This is going to be a real movie.
