McNabb causes Fletcher to talk Super Bowl
Donovan McNabb's arrival caused so many people to say so many things that I've sort of lost count somewhere around eight trillion. Here are some more of those things.
London Fletcher, Fox Sports Radio, via Sports Radio Interviews:
"The excitement with our team began with the adding of Bruce Allen as the General Manager last year at the end of the season. Then it continued and got even higher when we added Mike Shanahan as the head football coach. So now we come in and they make all of the other moves they made in this offseason and then you trade for a Donovan McNabb, a six-time Pro Bowl quarterback, a guy who has taken his team to five NFC Championships and one Super Bowl appearance. You talk about excitemen. Before we were thinking, 'Ok, Let's compete for a division championship.' No. Now, we are thinking, 'Let's compete for a Super Bowl.' So just to let you know how things have changed around here."
Brian Baldinger, NFL Network, via Moving the Chains:
"The Eagles should be ecstatic. I view McNabb as a flawed player, and it was never more apparent than in the back-to-back losses to the Cowboys last season. His flaws will never go away. Now, the Eagles get at least two chances to expose the same flaws they've been covering up for 11 years. It works against the Redskins that McNabb is still in the division. Andy Reid can finally stop covering up for one of the most overrated quarterbacks in the history of the game. The Eagles will go to the playoffs. The Redskins will be watching from the golf course."
Jim Riggleman, via Nats.com:
"I'm a Mike Shanahan fan and a Donavan McNabb fan, so it's going to be a lot more fun for me to watch Redskins and follow them. At the same time, I went to a couple of college games where Jason Campbell was playing. I always thought he was an NFL quarterback -- a guy with a great arm. I feel bad for him."
Chris Cooley, SIRIUS NFL Radio:
"I remember coming in as a rookie and being in awe of just playing catch with Mark Brunell, but Donovan's done so much over his career. He's just a definite winner. You know that when you're getting the guy. And I think you look forward to playing with a guy like that....I think they started to send a message when they picked up two Pro Bowl backs to add to what we had in Clinton Portis. I mean, they're definitely bringing in talent and guys that they think we can win a Super Bowl with. But that's the Redskins. You would think that we would do that. I'm not surprised with the moves we've made. Although they're big moves, this happens here."
Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler, via On The Record:
"It's horrible. Donovan McNabb has never been a good quarterback. It's very sad. It's what they always do. The Redskins will go out and try and find someone that everyone's heard of and stick him on the team, and it's never worked. Jason Campbell, if they gave him any kind of linemen, he would have been great. And then what's going to happen is, he's going to go to another team and be an all-pro for six years and Donovan McNabb will be watching that from his old-age home."
Clinton Portis, Hardcore Sports Radio, via Sports Radio Interviews:
"I think I always have tricks. But, like you said, it's turning into the No Fun League. You begin to take so much heat that it takes the joy out of it. The costumes for me was about fun amongst my teammates and bringing smiles to households. And all the sudden it leads to me having problems and a cry out for help and everything else. I would love to. One day I will. I just need to get back to being me. For a couple years, it was more of me being a fall guy. I think this year, with all talent we have and all the potential we have, I can get back to being me and having fun."
Amani Toomer, The Scott Van Pelt Show:
"They were trying to be smart a couple years ago and that didn't work. Now since they've gotten Bruce Allen and Shanahan, now that they've got those guys in and they're making moves like getting McNabb, everybody, believe me, up and down the NFC East is worried. Not only because they've got a good, competitive team, but they know Daniel Snyder has the deep pockets to fund that team."
Art Monk, CSN Washington:
"I'm excited like everybody else, an opportunity to bring a quality player into this team and help them get to the next level. They're getting a proven quarterback, he's experienced, he has leadership qualities I think we need, at least offensively. I'm not sure why the Eagles decided to let him go, or why they let him go to us, but we're excited to have him."
