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.

YOU FORGOT TO MENTION, STEROID-USING DOUCHE BAG.  He would've had a 3 year career if not for them.

Heres another example why I dont watch Jim Rome, you ask the opinion(everyone knows what opinions are) of a ex- NFL player who had a so so career(just on great teams) about McNabb's commitment to playing football of course somethin stupid is going to come out his ped eating trap.Hes best known for being a dirty player who took cheap shots.Just go and fade away in the mist like a good dog.

Why does everyone got to pile on Romanowski? What he said sounds pretty accurate to me. McNabb looked fat, out of shape, and out of sync last year. I don't think he was putting the time in either.

By the way, Romanowski was a helluva player. He played on 4 SB Champions, and was a big factor on all 4.

Donovan McNabb is the most unfairly over-scrutinized player of this generation (excluding guys like Randy Moss and Terrell Owens, who have long been unjustly villainized for off the field stuff). At his best, he's been -- what? -- the second best quarterback in the league. Even at his worst, which was probably last season in Washington, he's been decent. And honestly, last season wasn't entirely his fault. That was a situation designed to kill.

Also, McNabb did it without help for most of his run in Philadelphia. You honestly don't think if the Eagles had DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin during McNabb's tenure they wouldn't have won a ring? He was up there working with Freddie Mitchell and Kevin Curtis.

I'd say it's Romanowski that's lazy.  Anyone who takes Roids/HGH doesn't want to put in the work, which is the definition of lazy.

I love Romanowski: he is not afraid to speak his mind and is actually willing to tell the truth about these guys. Most people in the media these days are so afraid to criticize players, and as a result, you do not get any true opinions.

What a great time to be alive. A lowlife cheat can go on tv and slam a fine decent man and a great player.

Career is over (for a long time now).  Get some help.
