McNabb Traded to Redskins
According to Adam Shefter Donovan McNabb was traded to the Washington Redskins for a 2nd round pick this year and a third or fourth round pick next year. At the theoretical level it's all about production if the newly minted starter Kolb is better than Mcnabb (I'll even say over the next 2-3 years) it's a plus to trade Mcnabb. If Kolb is worse then it's a bad trade.
Now at first glance the trade is really perplexing as the Eagles decided to trade McNabb to the Redskins rather than Raiders . However it turns playing for the Raiders might be the worst job in professional sports and the Eagles decided to reward a loyal employee by not sending him to Siberia. Yeah I know crazy ethical nonsense. What is this Sweden? Hats off to Andy Reid for treating McNabb well although it might end up biting the Eagles (which I suppose is the definition of an ethical decision). Anyway shocking to say the least......
