McNabb is NOT going to be released or traded. That is not going to happen. The Redskins would then be in a very similar situation as the Panthers. They would have no legit starting QB, looking at the same FA group we are (which is not very good, and nobody close to McNabb) and then have a #10 draft pick to get a QB who will not be ready to start right away.
Bottom line is McNabb will be on the Skins roster, unless somebody offers an insane trade (which wont happen). Not saying I wouldnt mind having him on our roster.
Shanny benched his twice for Rex Grossman last year.......McNabb makes to much money to stay in DC and for Shanny to not want to play him. Shanny won w/ Plummer....Shanny thinks he can win with anyone pending he finds someone he likes I think.
I think they hope to trade him and end up cutting him. I still think Palmer is the guy Carolina needs. He can play a couple years and be good w/ the talent here.....and Rivera can then worry about finding the future and working w/ him on the bench.
Doesnt make a difference Shannahan benched him twice. I even think some of that was going on when they gave him the 5yr contract or something. Bottom line is there is NOBODY out there who is better than McNabb. Getting rid of him, escpecially with out some decent picks in return, would leave a huge hole from them at QB they themselves couldnt fill. Going into next season with Grossman and McNabb is much better than any other combination. Maybe if somebody offers a deal they cant refuse, I can maybe see it, but other than that no way.
