Redskins fans have McNabb fever



Aside from the extreme confidence displayed by Mike Shanahan and DeAngelo Hall on Saturday, my biggest takeaway from the FedEx Field draft party was this: D.C. has a bad case of McNabb fever. Even while Colt Brennan's No. 5 jerseys went on sale for 11 bucks in the bargain aisle, there were No. 5 burgundy and gold McNabb jerseys on all sorts of torsos: black and white, male and female, young and old, long-haired and short, skinny and fatty.

This, bear in mind, is mere weeks after his arrival. Imagine what the crowd will look like in September, after several more months of birthday presents, shopping sprees, and realizations that many of your most popular Skins jerseys (Campbell, Smoot, Randle El, Griffin, Samuels) are no longer operational. You have to figure McNabb will have the top-selling Skins jersey next season, finally displacing Chris Cooley from that spot.

He might have been a hated rival in the very recent past, but he's already on his way to becoming the face of the franchise, at least judging by these backs.

Dan, I bet you in a decade a Chris Samuels Skins jersey will be more "operational" than a McNabb one.

The whole jersey-selling business is one of the biggest scams in the NFL, to me.

I support the team, the colors and the city, so if I'm buying some clothing it's having one of those. But buying jerseys doesn't make sense to me since these guys come and go every season, and have a tendency to display character flaws that ought to make you not want to wear their jersey (Roethlisberger, Vick, Holmes, Barber are recent names). Plus, authentic jerseys are some of the most expensive sports items around.

I applaud the fans for supporting their team and wearing the colors, but my personal opinion is I would only wear a retired or former player (Green, Riggins, Jorgenson, S.Taylor) or clothing with only the team logo or colors. I just think all these people buying up McNabb jerseys so quickly are just stuffing Dan Snyder and the NFL's pockets. Authentic jersey: $225, customized jersey: $285. That's a lot for a player who hasn't played a snap and might not be here next year. And as we see repeatedly, individual sports figures have a tendency to turn around and let us all down with some heinous criminal or personal act (or maybe they just decide to stop practicing or supporting their team like Portis and Haynesworth). Again, just my personal opinion but if I'm wearing anything it's team, colors, city.

This is disgusting. In two years' time, these will all be as relevant as Mark Brunell jerseys. But hey, if you've got $80 to blow, go ahead.

Another reason why my throwback Rypien jersey was an excellent investment: a Super Bowl MVP will never cease to be 'operational'.

Posted by: EALukas | April 26, 2010 12:20 PM | Report abuse

No doubt...If you want to take less risk, get a Darrell Green jersey, Monk, etc. I've got an authentic Sean Taylor jersey and I know it will always be "Operational". I can't even buy a Cooley jersey as much as I'd love to because he could get traded someday...That's just reality...Get one with Theisman or Jurgensen or someone who's in the History Books.

Posted by: Skinsational | April 26, 2010 12:25 PM | Report abuse

Santonio Holmes was the MVP of Super Bowl XLIV. And his jersey just became non-operational for a whole bunch of Steeler fans (as did Roethlisberger's).

I'm just busting your chops ... I know what you meant and I agree with you.

What is with the delusion around here?? I've been a Redskins fan since I was a kid in the '70s, but I just don't remember it ever being so crazy as under Snyder. EVERY offseason, we're going to the Super Bowl, and whatever big signing we've had is THE answer. This year it's McNabb. Last year it was Haynesworth. Before that, Jason Taylor. And that's not counting the coaching "answers" -- Zorn, Al Saunders, Gibbs, Schottenheimer, and Spurrier. (Snyder would be wise to have his coaches wear jerseys and sell those, too.)

People, wake up. McNabb may help turn things around... maybe. But come on. History is the best predictor of the future, so there's a good chance McNabb will make no more difference than Brunnell did.

For God's sake, everyone, stop feeding Snyder's delusions and bank account. Let someone come here, prove themselves for a while, and THEN get their jersey.

In the meantime, I'll go home and continue to treasure my pint-sized Chris Hanburger #55 jersey.

I bought a Campbell jersey and got 2 yrs out of it. I won't buy another Redskins jersey unless I get it with my name on the back (it won't be changing anytime soon). I love the Caps also and I just buy the T-shirts with the players' names and numbers.

Like postage stamps, only dead players should be on jerseys if you want to be completely safe.

I agree with the posters about current v. retired jerseys. I have a CP one (it was a gift, is a kids XL (same as adult S) and has the info "ironed on") but when I "invested" in one with sewn on numbers/name I opted for #7 - Joey T! You're always safe with throwbacks, and you don't look like a bandwagon jumper if the start winning!!

I've been a Skins fan since the 70's. I had a Larry Brown jersey when I was a kid. I agree with all the posts about players coming and going making jerseys obsolete. What's more laughable than a Favre Jet jersey? I bought my first team jersey a few years ago. I went with Marcus Washington. I figured if he got traded, a Redskin's jersey with Washington on the back still made sense.

My new jersey is gonna be a Ravens jersey. After 45 years of faithful attendance and rooting for the Redskins (I go back to Bill McPeak and Sonny), I am selling my season tickets and moving on. Nothing against McNabb; he's just too old, too fragile and too predictable to take this team where I'd like them to be. New management won't be much help, either, I fear. Looks like same old, same old to me. Our draft was a yawner; our off-season moves below average in quality. 'Skins cost too much for that nonsense.

Redskins fans should purchase #55 Chris Hanburger jerseys and then lobby the Redskins front office, the local media and the Veteran's Committee voters for the Pro Football Hall of Fame to select Hanburger for induction immediately! There is no eligible player more qualified for induction to the Hall of Fame than Chris Hanburger! He was voted to the Pro Bowl 9 times, a first team All-Pro 5 times and the NFC Defensive Player of the Year in 1972 (the Redskins first Super Bowl season). He was also handpicked by George Allen to be his defensive signal caller during some of the best defensive seasons in Redskins history. There is no other player with a combined 14 Pro Bowl and All-Pro selections who is not in the Hall of Fame other than Chris Hanburger. Let's correct this injustice. We lobbied for years to get Art Monk inducted. Let's do the same thing for Chris Hanburger!

Let me just repeat this again: when you are a billionaire, a few dollars on a jersey sale does not register on your radar. A few dollars on 10,000 jersey sales likely doesn't register. The guy just wrote a $21,000,000 check to Albert Haynesworth for christ's sake. If you think the man is preoccupied with jersey sales of any particular player, I suggest you seek some professional help.

I agree (well except for the keeping Campbell for one more year part) But as far as McNabb once Clausen fell to the second round and we could have got him and the LT Shanahan wanted.. I'd much rather have done that. McNabb is on the downside of career to the point the Eagles gave up on him. Clausen could have been a franchise QB here for the next 10 years. The Eagles did us no favors trading him to us..

Stop hatin' you fake-a&& Redskin fans. McNabb will help us win 10-11 games per year, and we will make the playoffs eahc year that he is year. That is who McNabb is. A bona-fide winner. Andy Reid wouldn't even be the head coach in Philly today if McNabb hadn't played for him this long.

McNabb has more weapons than he had in Philly. Although DeSean Jackson may be the best WR he's had since TO.

In any case, the Redskins are playoff bound as long as we have a franchise-winning QB like McNabb around. Only a complete implosion of his playing abilites, or a serious injury will prevent McNabb from leading us to the promised land.

I hate when these ridiculous fans say you're not a true fan if you criticize the team or a player, I'd argue the opposite that true fans are the fans that get sick of losing and speak out about it, not some fanboy that worships other men. If the Redskins go better than 7-9 that would be a great accomplishment...and that's coming from a true, lifelong fan.
