Apparently, the quantity of people (if not the quality) who decide to spew vile all over Vikings QB Donovan McNabb continues to grow.

You remember Bill Romanowski, right? He was a two-time Pro Bowler, but he was also a jerk, kicking opponents in the head, spitting in other people’s faces and ending a teammate’s career by blasting his eye socket. So, good dude, right?

And it makes him the perfect person to comment on somebody with whom he never played, right? Right? Hello?

Either way, Romanowski was on Jim Rome’s radio show today and, well, he acted just like you’d expect -- he did his best Bernard Hopkins impersonation and ripped the hell out of McNabb for, as far as I can tell, no reason at all.

“The reason why Donovan McNabb is not in Washington right now is because he was lazy,” Romanowski said, via PFT.com. “He didn’t spend the time. Mike Shanahan likes guys who will work really hard. I narrow it down to two things. He’s either lazy, or he’s not very bright to pick up the offense. One or the other. I think he’s bright enough, I just think he was lazy.”

And, just for the hell of it, Rome asked how Romanowski would act around Broncos QB Tim Tebow?

“I would want to lay him out and put him into next year,” Romanowski said. “I’d have him so messed up mentally he’d be like, ‘Oh, God, this Romanowski is crazy.’”

Um, crazy wasn’t the word I was thinking about.

McNabb brings out the best in Romanowski

I really don't get Philly fans. Mcnabb was a stud in his prime.  
----------------------
Exactly.  but was wasnt in his prime when they traded him.   and then mcnabb went on a rant about philly fans.  are you saying that a player should be continued to be revered even when he is no longer above average, simply based on the past?   i'm not a philly fan, but i think that they are fine.

Please don't give dicks like Romanowski any media attention.  Of course, he probably got along great with Jim Rome, who is also a grade-A dick.

Shut your pie hole.  I wont even dignigy youir comments with a response other than to say at least we sell out every game (baseball, football & hockley) and Miami fans are among the worst fans in sports.  No passion.  Hell, they cant even get more than 10,000 people at a Marlins game.  I was at an Eagles game in Miami a few years back and there were literally more Eagles fans than so called Dolphins fans. and we both know there are more Phillies fans than Marlins fans at every game in Miami.

I really don't get Philly fans. Mcnabb was a stud in his prime. He played a game went 22-25 completions on a broken ankle. Took his team to 4 NFC Championship games and a Superbowl with garbage recievers minus the yr he had TO. What more can the guy do. I am a Dolphin fan and would have loved to have McNabb on our team all those yrs. I am sure all the teams without a good QB would have loved to have him too. The reason Philly never won a superbowl is because there fans don't deserve one. Just negative whining crybabies. They attract what they put out into the universe. There mean spirited low class and honestly don't deserve a superbowl. They booed Santa Claus, that says enough about them. Oh they also have a jail in there stadium. Not the right kind of element when u need a jail in ur stadium.

Enough respect?? I am a season ticket holder for the Eagles and let me tell you, we gave that man all the respect he deserved. Don't judge a fan base on 30 dorks that went up to the NFL draft to boo Mcnabb. When he came back last year as the Redskins qb, we gave Mcnabb a standing ovation. Don't listen to everything you hear from the media. Like booing Santa Clause, its mostly myth than fact!!

Everyone knows that McNabb was driven out of Washington because he is Irish.

I hear that Rome is going to have McNabb on his show to discuss why Romanowski is such an A-Hole.  That should be just as valid as this crap.  What's next?  John Rocker on the "Jewish" problem?

McNabb brings out the best in Romanowski

First thing is McNabb has been disliked since his draft day. He has become a good quarterback, not great. He has had a ton of success in the NFL. More then most.  Eagles fans never gave him the enough respect for what he did there. Second thing is Jim Rome is a putz. Probably some smart mouthed kid that was good at nothing, wishing he could be a jock. Now some moron gave him a bunch of money to spew his own idiot ideas. Third thing is Terrell Owens is a elite NFL player who shows up on Sundays, whether you like him or not. And lastley, steroids DO NOT make you a top level linebacker, toughness and hard work do. You ignorant people who think you know something and then dismiss what someone does on a level you cant even comprehend. Bill Romanowski was a very good football player, thats why he was in the NFL. Steroids dont kill you and they dont make you Superman either. You hyprocites that think pot and steroids are evil while you smoke a cigarette and drink beer should wake up to reality.
