The Skins traded their 2010 second-rounder and 2011 third or fourth-rounder for McNabb, and I don’t see how you spin this in a positive way.
Washington gets a 33-year-old QB who’s a minor win-now upgrade over the 28-year-old QB they’ve already got, and he comes at the expense of precious draft picks. He’s also someone we’re programmed to dislike quite a bit.
Not making this easier to swallow is that a) Philly thinks so little of McNabb that they’re willing to face him twice a year and b) Jason Campbell’s trade value — or value period — is now basically nil.
I guess the only bright side is that this makes trading up for Bradford or drafting Clausen less likely. I think. But I don’t really know what to think.
