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?

You also are a huge moron because if you listened to the radio stations in Philadelphia the fans wanted him to stay. The organization traded him away not the fans. OMG 30 fans boo'd him 11 years ago? Wow you are such a freaking baby. He is a millionaire athlete, if he can't take the heat then get out of the kitchen and get a different job.

They honored McNabb's choice to go to Redskins

But don't let that stop you from blabbing about it without doing even a minimal amount of research. They worked with Mcnabb and given his options he chose the skins and they honored his wishes. Your ignorance is obviously fueled by your hate fot philly's fanbase.

I agree with Freeman that Mcnabb was under appreciated. I also agree that the Eagles should have kept him. However, the fact that McNabb is black and that Freeman is a Redskins fan obviously pushed the agenda of this blog. Seriously, Kevin KornKobb? You wonder why no one takes you seriously, Freeman, it's because of blogs like this. You're one of a handfull of writers that, even when they're right, they're still wrong.

They say never trade within your division, but the Redskins O Line will probally help kill his career. He will only be a stopgate until they draft another QB and give him a yr or 2 as the starter.

Cry me a river Freeman. If this were a white QB you wouldn't say anything about McNabb. McNabb had the second most jerseys sold with the Eagles in the past 10 years behind Dawkins. Guess the Philly fans must hate him so much they want to spend their money on his jersey. You are such a moron and racist.
