Donovan in D.C. is not Done, $78 million dollar extension
Relationship is fine with everyone in the organization. Reports are complete BS. Loves working with Kyle and Mike.
Thinks he is a good fit in DC and the system.
McNabb and Grossman went to dinner together after game.
Says 100% WILL BE THE QB IN DC NEXT YEAR. He wants to be a Redskin.
Well what did you expect him to say. I hate this town. I'll leave if I get a better offer. I'm not fitting well in the offense. No point in him alienating himself from his teammates and the media. Not saying he doesn't truly believe all of this but one doesn't mean the FO and Shanny believe this, and guys like LeBron James were saying these things all of last year. I honestly wouldn't take anything he says at this point.
all im doing is reporting on what he said. interpret it as you will. he's a class act either way and yes i do believe he wants to resign in DC. as you said its not necessarily up to him but there are still 8 games left this year and no reason to make premature speculation right now.
Obviously McNabb is going to say all those things, he's been down this road before. I'm leaning towards him not re-signing which would be disastrous and even though he has played pretty bad, we need his leadership. Get him a legit WR and a decent running game in the off-season and he'll be fine. Not sure if Shannahan really wants him for the future though, should be an interesting second half of the season. Crazy how much things have changed in one week.
Really, JaMarcus Russell? I can't stand this organization.
ok so now Kyle Shannahan is saying that he told Mcnabb before the game that if he wasn't playing well they might bench him. According to Mcnabb though he was never told this. ok it has to be one or the other, do these guys even talk to each other, it seems like these guys talk to the media more than they talk to each other. Did Kyle like put in fineprint at the bottom of the weekly gameplan that he might be benched, lol. What a flippin mess.
It looks bad from a PR standpoint. However, I expect the Shannies and McNabb to meet and discuss. It will be fine for the remainder of this year. However, it might be the beginning of the end with McNabb. Not much is keeping him from exploring FA and not signing an extension, especially if the Skins aren't going to pay him along the lines of what Brady just got...
I don't see how Shanny can build a good identity with the team through lies. You want respect so you change your story from one day to the next? ummm . . . huh?
Yeah, the fact that Favre is somehow a likable figure in the media is beyond me. The guy has always been a selfish asshat with zero admirable qualities.
The media could turn anyone into a bad guy, If mother teresa played football and she did not talk to media or didn't like the media. The media would find a way to make mother teresa look like the worst team mate ever.
(I am not saying T.O. is the nicest person in the world or anything like that)
