For Donovan McNabb, it has been a hard transition from the life of an NFL superstar to one of a retired quarterback who can’t get a job. Every time McNabb goes to open his mouth about a certain team not doing things the right way, I immediately wish he could just puke up some Chunky Soup like he did just a few years ago and stop talking.
Anyway, the ex-Philadelphia Eagles QB is taking his frustrations out on the Washington Redskins and Robert Griffin III in particular. I guess that the 14 touchdowns and 15 interceptions that McNabb threw during his 13 games with the Redskins qualifies him to talk down to RG3. The next quote from the Washington Post shows just how desperate McNabb is for attention:
“But if you’re coming off ACL surgery, you don’t need to be having a press conference at OTAs.”
Considering how much time and energy I invested into the Derrick Rose saga with the Chicago Bulls, this comment couldn’t be further from the truth. If Rose were to have scheduled a press conference before the season, Chicago media and the national media in general would have been much more understanding. It sounds like McNabb just wants something to complain about here.
If that wasn’t enough, the unemployed loudmouth went on to bash Washington head coach Mike Shanahan, saying “one thing Andy Reid did is he never let the injured guys become the story.” Really Donovan? You’re going to commend Reid when he has been to just one Super Bowl in 14 years and failed out of Philly?
Meanwhile, Shanahan has two Super Bowl rings in 19 years — he knows how to win, that’s not something you can say about Reid nor McNabb. Let the washed-up quarterback go about his embarrassing attempt to get back into the always-bright NFL spotlight, but know he is just blowing smoke.
