Trent Cole goes after McNabb

Jeez, at this point, has anybody decided NOT to pile on top of Redskins QB Donovan McNabb?

Today, it was Eagles DE Trent Cole adding his name to the list of people who aren’t all that impressed by McNabb.

Cole appeared on Sirius NFL Radio this morning, and he was asked, as a former teammate of McNabb’s, why it’s so tough to play against McNabb. A nice, easy question that should have been easy for a veteran to answer about one of his former colleagues. Say nice things and move on.

Except that’s not the way Cole played it.

"Yeah, I think I'll say no, he's not that difficult a quarterback to play against," Cole told hosts Adam Schein and Jim Miller, via D.C. Sports Bog. "Because I think we should have won that game. This past game we played against them, we should have won. Like I said, I just think he's not a difficult quarterback to play against."

Um, OK.

"I've seen what our team can do to that team," Cole said. "I know what we can do. We just didn't execute. He's a good quarterback – I didn't say he was bad – he's a good quarterback and he's done great things over time. But now, talking about now, I feel like our team can go in there and stop all that. We can go in there and win that game."

And you know what? Cole is most likely correct. It’s just a little surprising that he’d be so forthright about it.

He's suppose to say that about any opponent.  He's not going to hype McNabb up when he's playing against him.  This isn't really news.

I think it's better that Cole was honest.  Did he really say anything that bad?  Not to me.

Better to respond like that than issue another bunch of cliches.
