Maybe Mike Wise's article greased the skids. Oh wait, no one takes that d-bag seriously. Seriously, is this Fargo, ND?? Why do we have that moron writing and talking in town. He belongs in Fort Lauderdale calling bingo games.

Donovan wanted to stay and this proves it. Next, after his football career, I want Donovan to clean up part of the dirtiest parts of DC - mostly along Constitution Ave - at the Capitol Bldg - Donovan for Congress! Total class and character regardless of what you think about his way above avg QB abilities.

From a die hard Eagles fan, have fun not ever winning a Superbowl. Have fun having a QB on your team who isn't a leader in any capacity. Have fun listening to his interviews and wondering, "what the heck did that mean." Have fun with a QB who is better than average, but not good enough to win the big game. And when it comes time for him to explain why the team never made it over the hump, he will never ever put any blame on himself. Congrats Washington D.C.

abrogno your Sleazgles team would have not even come close without Donovan. Have fun trying to get there this year forward. Andy will never win the big one.

abrogno How many playoff victories does Mike Vick have at age 32? Think about it - Mike's going nowhere fast. He's an above avg QB playing in a system that can only succeed in limited amounts...

Does this means its okay for McNabb to continue to play poorly. This stinks! Now we are stuck with an aging, inaccurate QB for the next 2-3 years. So much for trying to get a franchise QB for the future. The public outrage over benching a poor playing QB was too much for the the ownership.

For the fans that would still like to see the skins play well, have winning seasons, and some respect in the league, SORRY! Are the McNabb lovers going to continue to cheer as he continues to miss open receivers?
