One year ago, on Easter night the newswires instantly were overloaded.
“The Philadephia Eagles have traded quarterback Donovan McNabb to the Washington Redskins…”
Most people were elated. Yours truly included. Then the season happened, and despite nearly shattering the Redskins all-time single season passing record, he was not the guy we hoped he would be. Dirt balls here, random fumbles there, and interceptions were not part of the plan. The Redskins wanted a leader who could rally a team and be “the guy”. Instead they got a high character guy, who at this stage of his career, is perhaps far and away a better person than he is quarterback.
My what goes on in one year. The next 22 days will be equally as crazy.
