McNabb arrives, Skins' Super Bowl odds spike


Two things were inevitable today, not counting thousands of drunk Philadelphia fans near the Navy Yard: video of Donovan McNabb landing at the airport, and new Redskins Super Bowl odds.

Before they traded for Donovan McNabb, the Skins were 55-1 to win the Super Bowl, according to Bodog. Now, they're 30-1.

Before they traded McNabb away, the Eagles were 16-1 to win the Super Bowl. Now, they're 20-1.

So I guess Vegas thinks the Skins got the better of this deal. They still have the lowest odds in the NFC East.

McNabb's regular season over-under for passing yards is 3,500. Jason Campbell had 3,618 in 16 games a year ago. McNabb's over-under for passing TDs is 20.5. Campbell had 20 a year ago, a career high.

NBC Washington's helicopter video trailing McNabb's limo is below, if you want to debase yourself further. I did. It was fun.

Correction: Vegas thinks the Skins got the better of this deal--for 2010. I don't think anyone would dispute that. The real question is who got the better of this deal in the long term.

Well they didn't get any worse...Besides it would seem they're looking for a short term fix.
