Disloyal Eagles will pay for trading McNabb

The city of Philadelphia never fully appreciated Donovan McNabb. I was there when Eagles fans booed him at the draft. They've criticized everything from McNabb's throwing to his touchdown celebrations. In my 20-plus years of covering the NFL few superstars have been as under-appreciated by its fan base -- in any sport -- as McNabb has been by Eagles fans.

Now, the same could be said for the Eagles organization itself. Andy Reid was supposedly a McNabb proponent. Well, with friends like these...

The Eagles will pay for this ridiculously arrogant trade. They'll pay dearly. McNabb has three to five years left in that 33-year-old body. (He takes beter care of himself than Brett Favre does.) He'll play the Eagles twice a year and he'll crush them. At least, I hope he does. I hope McNabb throws for 400 yards a game when he plays Philadelphia. I hope he eats a cheesesteak every time he scores, too.

Maybe he'll sing that Rocky theme song after a TD pass.

The Eagles think so lowly of McNabb they traded him within the division. They're going to pay for that arrogance.

Football is a business and the Eagles can do what they want but the way Philadelphia -- the team and its fans -- have treated McNabb has stunned even a hardened cynical hard ass like me.

He never got into trouble. He wasn't a jerk like Terrell Owens. He won four straight division titles, went to five conference title games and a Super Bowl. Those were his crimes.

So you got what you wanted, Philly fans. McNabb is gone. You can't blame him for every ill in the world any longer.

Good luck with Kevin KornKolb and Michael Vick.

You're going to to need it.

And when McNabb returns to a Super Bowl without you, Eagles fans, who will you blame then?

This is one of the most childish articles I have ever read.  I think you took a potshot at Kevin Kolb, please don't use race, not potshot at Vick there.  I always liked Donovan and I wish him well but Kolb is a superior quarterback, just like Aaron Rodgers was for the Packers.

Finally, the great 4 time NFC championship LOSER, and Single Superbowl LOSER is gone.  I have been to every eagles home game since we drafted him.  I just wanna let everyone who is not from the Philly area that you don't know what you are talking about.  I have followed this team through this whole thing, and let me tell you the problem with D-mac.  He does not HATE losing!  He has never taken this team over the top, because he is not one of those players who excels in the clutch.  Would you rather have Peyton Manning walking off the field without shaking hands, because he is so mad his team lost?  Or would you rather have D-mac, clowning and laughing after his team loses.  His stats are so blown up because he is, I mean WAS, on a team that throws about 60% of the time.  He played 12 years, (about 8 after injuries) and was always throwing, so he gets the inflated stat line.  McNabb was always a mid teir QB, he was only thought of as better when he ran a little bit.  Good Luck to McNabb in WAS, he will need it. 

By the way I think it is racist to write Kevin KornKolb!  Don't you?

Couldn't have said it better myself! Freeman has to rush to protect him because of his color. See also: Steven A. Smith!  I hope everyone remembers their stance in a few years when we are no worse off with Kolb. I enjoyed Donovan McNabb's career imensely but when he stopped running he became very average. I'll take the hope of something better versus the same story with the same ending.

Mike Freeman is a stone cold stupid turd.  Kevin KornKobb???

Unreal.  Show your hatred at the bar turd, and realize that McNabb wasn't going to play on a 1-year deal and the Eagles weren't going to extend him.

So they get 2 solid picks for a guy who wasn't even the QB other teams were most interested in...  And the fact that more teams inquired about KOLB, WHAT DOES THAT TELL YOU????


I hope you speak up when the Skins lose BOTH TIMES, after McNugget fails to lead a 4th quarter 2 minute drill....

How you collect a paycheck for posting your personal agenda is so laughable that it makes ESPN look good.  And that's tough.

I dont know how this guy has a job..if he were with ESPN he would have been fired long ago...The guy makes racist claims repeatedly towards white players and it's ok...I dont think its necessary to have a writer make KKK references, it's an insult to both white and blacks....The article states about the Eagles paying for trading McNabb...It's not like they traded Michael Jordan in his prime..McNabb has missed alot of games and for as good as he can be he's just as bad...The Redskins aren't going anywhere...They are 2-3 years away, and by then NcNabb will be done and he can groom a young qb...

Hey genius. How many big games did McNabb win? One NFC championship game. That's it. And they were the favorites in four. He doesn't suck, but he's not Joe Montana either. C'mon let's face it, he's not even Warren Moon.

As an Eagles season ticket holder, but a bigger fan of other teams and football generally, could it be that perhaps McNabb is over-rated by the national media because he puts up some big numbers against generally mediocre competition?  Just seems that he is missing *it*!  And while Kolb is unproven, he can't win any fewer Super Bowls than McNabb or any other Eagles quarterback for that matter.   And if Freeman thinks he'll be the difference maker in Washington, he really should have his eyes checked and his head examined.  Either that, or McNabb may very well throw for 400 yards, but skip the game winning throw 5 yds in front of the receiver as time runs out.

Freeman, that was a good article up until the point you make reference to "KornKobb".... then the racist in you comes out.  The backup QB did nothing personally here so to bring him into the mix and make fun of him shows your bias.  I didn't see you make fun of Michael Vick's name??  You make comments like this and it is hard as a reader to view you with any credibility.  Bottom line, McNabb is a great QB, he wasn't appreciated by the fans or the upper brass in Philadelphia.  Hopefully he will make them pay for it twice a year.  I just don't see the need to make fun of the white guy, it really shows your ignorance and your true colors.
