B. Romanowski ripped D. McNabb (Getty).Posted by Josh Katzowitz

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 “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.

I never liked it that they accused philly of being racist from trading mcnabb.   that is ignorant and racist in and of itself.   mcnabb was pretty good for a while, now he is OK.  he was never bad, but never great either.   philly had every right to trade him.   so you can't trade a black qb? or if you do you will get called haters or un loyal?  what a joke.  all players have to earn their playing time and not rest on past laurels.  dont  the know the guy.  seems to have a good sense of humor and be liked by his teamates, but results wise as a QB?  middle pack for sure.

So, if you think lowly enough of Romanowski to sarcasticly dub him "the perfect person to comment on somebody", why even bother acknowledging his comments with this posting?

And it's not like he went out of his way to bash McNabb - he was on talk radio with Rome for a segment and was asked a question.

In summary - big deal - take the time to post something more worthwhile.

I'm not a Romanowski fan and who can lend any credence to the Jim Rome show?  Having said that, I've never been a McNabb fan.  Wasn't when he was at Syracuse nor in the NFL.  Is he lazy?  I think so.  Is he not bright enough?  I don't know - he probably is but isn't he the guy that didn't know that you could have a tie game in the pros?  And some are going to say that few players knew that.  But I guess they wouldn't be too bright either.

Ya, steroids aren't magic pills. But I wouldn't exactly say that a guy taking a shortcut to get stronger, faster and better has much of a case when he calls a guy lazy. Maybe if he was driven enough himself, or less lazy, he wouldn't resort to pills to make him better. Not saying that you take steroids and you immediately get better by sitting on the couch, but a guy that takes an illegal short cut and then criticizes a guy for being lazy is like a prescription pill popper calling out a pothead for doing illegal credence in my book

Is he wrong about that? I like McNabb and never understood why he has always been picked apart but last year-yeah he was fat.

FYI-Steroids and HGH aren't magic pills. You still have to work your arse off to get any benefit from them. Actually, being able to work harder is the benefit from them. Just sayin'

mcnabb has been a good qb never great and never the 2nd best qb in the league but has a reputation of being lazy. i agree randy moss got a raw deal for his off the field antics if he was not randy moss we would have never heard anything at all, thats the price of fame,terrell owens is trash horrible teammate blaming everybody but himself. what ever happened to just playing football terrell is another spoiled athlete who forgot that its a priveledge and not a right to be a professional athlete.

Romanowski defines the word jerk! First off it is the Jim Rome show which loves this brand of Radio. Rome is the same professional host who enticed Jim Everett to beat him up. Jim Rome kept calling him Chris after the tennis star Chris Everett. This was done to insult I guess Jim's manhood. So we are already talking scumbag radio here and the you add Romanowski. Mcnabb has done everything in the NFL except winning a Superbowl. So if that defines a player as lazy then we have to include Marino, Barry Sanders and many others Bill! I don't think so you roidboy. I think Romanowski suffers from a lack of the limelight. Making a comment that shows his real wonderful side allows him to get media attention. I don't think he cares if he is a jerk as long as he is seen being one. But Bill you look stupid more then anything because your being a jerk with incorrect facts. So for the future atleast before you open your mouth give yourself a leg to stand on. Just alittle Tebow note this kid has won at every level and had so flashes of what can be last season. Yet everyone continues to bash this kid. This kid is a leader and not lazy Bill and I would love to see you try to tackle him in the open field. Because he is not one of those average Joe's you faced on Pro's Vs Joe's Mr.Limelight!

"he's lazy" says the guy who decided to take roids to get stronger instead of putting forth real effort and work. Also from the guy who took cheap shots, aimed to injure people and gave no respect toward anyone's future health. I care what he says less than how much I care what Rome says. Love sports radio, cannot stand Rome's show. I think the plan for each of Rome's shows is "find some sound clip or slightly funny quote and repeat it one thousand times over the hour so that I only actually have to discuss sports for about 15 minutes."
