Why won’t this Donovan McNabb/Shanahan’s/Fletcher Smith story just die already? (Ahem, probably because idiots like me keep posting the next chapter in this saga.)

You know the story already, but here’s what happened Thursday when Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan responded to the statement released by Smith, McNabb’s agent. Basically Shanahan said he was disturbed by Smith’s comments and that he and McNabb had a meeting to clear the air. Apparently, McNabb told Shanahan that not every word in Smith’s statement was, um, true.

Now, Smith has responded to the response, via sportsbuzz.com.

"Donovan and I talk constantly and have done so with more frequency during this season. We are absolutely on the same page. I standby (sic) my statement and will reserve any further comments until after I have had a chance to speak, directly, with coach Shanahan."

Anybody else excited for McNabb to move to another city once the season ends?

I think part of the reason Shanahan is no longerin Denver began when he benched his starting quarterback (sound familar) for Jay Cutler. Of course it was more aggregious then - they were 7-4 when Shanahan lost patience with Plummer with a shot at the play-offs. The team went 2-3 and missed the playoffs. Shanahaan gave the usual multiple excuses for that move. He wetn with Jay Cutler weho failed to make the playoffs in the next two years. Cutler appears to be having some success now that he is untethered by Shanahan.

Can someone remind me again why Shanahan is no longer the head coach in Denver? I guess it was McNabb's fault he got fired there for lack of success also.

For those of you that adhere to the theory Donovan McNabb was and is washed up then here's a newsflash for you: so is Mike Shanahan and his worthless / intellectually challenged Offensive Coordinator son Kyle Shanahan! The son is a putz and the dad needs a rocking chair. After all... he (Shanny Sr.) wasa fired for the same reason all foyu keep putting forth relative to McNabb. 

Your other insurmountable hurdle is your owner... Daniel Snyder aka Little Danny Boy: the only owner in the entire NFL with an ego considerably larger than Jerry Jones. Both men have driven both teams into the ditch and aren't going to find their way out any time soon.

Twentyseven - I have a different perspective to yor view that, "Elway, Griese, Plummer, and Cutler all QBs that found success with the "Shanahan System". They all, including Elway, adapted their play and found success."


Winning is a team effort, and in the post-Elway era, the denver defense was aweful for all but one year, and that year the Bronco's lost to the Steeler's in the AFC Championship game.

The QBs however; they themselves were successful, you're right though, the teams overall weren't so great.

McNabb was done last year...which is why Andy Reid traded him. He's proven this year that last year wasn't an anomaly. He's done. He'll be 35 before next season. He isn't worth much at this point...which will be obvious when the Redskins are unable to get any significant in trade. He was a very good, but never really great, QB. Top 5 for a number of years. His problem is he usually showed his worst in big games. He isn't very good now.
