Crazy, right? McNabb a Redskin … even this photo doesn’t seem quite right on so many levels:
Nonetheless, here he is. I’m surprised, stunned even. But I love it.
Does it solve *all* our problems? By no means. We need a left tackle in this draft … But does this make the Redskins a much better team? Of course. And that’s not a knock on Jason Campbell, either, whom I liked and tried to support. JC did a fine job, but McNabb, with his experience and veteran presence, will change how this locker room will function in a way that the polite and soft-spoken Campbell couldn’t. Sure, McNabb’s job is made easier by Mike Shanahan’s presence. Like him or not, he’s a pro – unlike that clown we had here for two years – and there is a limit to what Shanahan will tolerate.
Sunday night, I texted my cousin that McNabb coming to DC makes the Redskins 8-8. I was trying to manage my own expectations. More likely, we could be looking at 10-6 and a slot in the playoffs. Most likely cannon fodder … but once you’re in, who knows what can happen …
