The Shanahan-McNabb song

By Dan Steinberg


Black Boo offers what I believe is the first musical take on the Donovan McNabb benching, via his weekly offering for Big Tigger. The front man from Mambo Sauce -- riffing off Willie Hutch's "I Choose You" and Int'l Players Anthem (I Choose You) -- eventually puts his trust in Mike Shanahan, but says he still chooses McNabb. And the song opens with this little philosophizing:

So, I typed a text to Shanahan and his son;
Saying benching McNabb in the fourth was so dumb, and
I know that that I'm speaking for everybody that's a fan;
So I Cc'd Dan Snyder and his entire staff.
McNabb ain't on fire but hey, at least he tryin'
If you're gonna bench McNabb then you need to bench the linemen.
We need better effort, how can he throw with no protection?
You decide to put Rex and he gets sacked they run it back?

No mention of John Feinstein, that I heard.
