The Washington Redskins have a real quarterback.
Do the Philadelphia Eagles?
As word trickled in Sunday that the Eagles had traded quarterback Donovan McNabb, I was lost in a food poison stupor.
I wasn't sure if I was hallucinating.
The Redskins? From the same division?
That's how desperate the Eagles were to find a trade partner, receiving a second-round pick from the Redskins in this year's draft and another draft pick -- third- or fourth-round pick -- in next year's draft.
As one personnel man told me last week, "They don't have a lot going for him."
So they settled. The Redskins had a big hole at quarterback to fill. The Eagles might still have one.
They love Kevin Kolb. And I do as well.
But let's be real. His track record grade is still incomplete.
Andy Reid is betting a lot on Kolb.
He better hope this one doesn't backfire. Kolb or McNabb next season goes to McNabb.
The Eagles better hope Kolb for the long run is what they expect him to be.
If not, can you imagine Philadelphia talk radio next year?
