Donovan McNabb's Philly house is for sale



When Donovan McNabb met with the media on Saturday, he was asked if he had already moved to the D.C. area.

"I'm still living in Philadelphia," he deadpanned, via Tracee Hamilton. "No, I'm just kidding. I'm here. I'm here. I think in order for me to get accustomed with everything [the best thing] is for me to be here. I'm living here and enjoying it. Would you like to buy me a house?"

Well, looks like he could use the help. Philly.com reports that McNabb's Philly (Ok, Moorestown) mansion is up for sale, but at only $2.5 million, he could be struggling to find a similar manse in D.C. Four bedrooms, four baths, more than 4,500 square feet, but the site also reports that Terrell Owens has been trying to sell his Philly house for more than four years.

McNabb's house has all the amenities you'd expect a star NFL QB to enjoy: a pond, several bridges, a pool house, a full bar and a white baby grand. The Sporting Blog has more of the photos, and the listing has even more. I'm concerned about the real estate downgrade he might be in for. Someone help him out.

In other Redskins news:

* Jim Haslett does lunch with Lindsay Czarniak and tells her that when he was coaching in New Orleans, his Western Pa.-parents went to a Saints-Steelers game decked out in black and gold and carrying Steelers flags. He made them change. He also said this:

I think the cornerstone of the team on defense is Brian Orakpo. He had 11 sacks last year, rushed 200 some times. In this defense, we'll rush 600-700 times.

* Mister Irrelevant presents five reasons that Westbrook to D.C. would be just fine.

* I received a non-joking e-mail that sums up The Cult of Colt in three sentences:

I watched him play in Hawaii. If he is given a chance to develop and can stay healthy, he could be the Brent Favre. Brent was a back up too at one time.

Yes. Yes he was.

* And Trent Dilfer said Mike Holmgren told him he would have gone to eight or nine Pro Bowls if he had been coached by Jim Zorn his whole career.

I can top the McNabb house for sale story. LaRon Landry detailed his car over the weekend!

Every single sentence in here is too crazy to even process (except the one about rushing 600-700 times, which is AWESOME)

Former Israeli PM from the late 60s Golda Meir had a famous quote: We will only have peace when the Arabs love their children as much as they hate the Jews.

The JIm Haslett interview reminded me of this. There is something deeply disturbing about Haslett's parents rooting for the Steelers over the team their son coaches. Wtf?

A pool and a pond. Pond will be good for you.

Brent Favre? Apparently spell checker is the only proofreading done on this article.

Uh, @withoutanet, that's sort of what made the gushing email about Colt funny. Get it? It was, like, an irrational email sent by an irrational Colt fan?

withoutanet, spend some time on Deadspin or pay attention to Stein and you'll come up to speed.

Brent Favre is awesome. He's definitely one of the bests, but I still think when it's all said and done, Tim Brady will be regarded as the better quarterback.

"And Trent Dilfer said Mike Holmgren told him he would have gone to eight or nine Pro Bowls if he had been coached by Jim Zorn his whole career. "

Why? Zorn would've paid for his tickets?

Why is this at all newsworthy? McNabb has suffered the slings and arrows of Eagles fans for 11 years, and will now finish his career in Washington. Did anyone seriously expect him to keep it?

Furthermore, if I were McNabb, when he goes into the HOF, I'd do it as a Redskin.

@Section104 it will always be debated whether Tim Brady or Brent Favre is the better quarterback. The reality is that neither can hold a kindle to Patrick Manning.

"Brent Favre is awesome. He's definitely one of the bests, but I still think when it's all said and done, Tim Brady will be regarded as the better quarterback."

Personally, I think John Montana is the best ever! :)

Patrick Manning is still no John Montana, I don't care what you say.
