The Monday Night shellacking happened, but yesterday’s bigger happening was McNabb’s new deal, and here’s KSK’s Jack Kogod and I discussing it on Dan Levy’s On the DL podcast.
Give that a listen, if you like, and/or read our super-salient points in bullet form:
— I was more upset about the McNabb trade than the McNabb contract. Still am.
— The McNabb contract was the inevitable conclusion of the McNabb trade.
— With the benching and the bright lights of MNF, the timing was really weird.
— The timing wouldn’t have been so weird if the Skins had gotten a bargain, but the Skins didn’t get a bargain.
— We couldn’t really agree on whether the money matters or not, but we can agree that the money “is just outrageous.”
— All this means for Michael Vick is that he won’t be able to use the Redskins to drive up his price this offseason. He did enough of that last night.
