UPDATE: Your NFL Notes: Donovan McNabb Won’t Shut His Mouth, Eagles Offered Randy Moss a Contract, Redskins Have No Fans

This post should be called: Things that used to be good.

In case you needed any more evidence of why Philly fans never took to McNabb the way we already have to a guy like, say, Hunter Pence, I offer you up these quotes from McChunkerson:

"I was there for 11 years, and the biggest thing we brought in was T.O. [Terrell Owens]," said McNabb. "Now they’re getting the so-called 'Dream Team.' It’s amazing, but I look back on my career and what they’re doing now … that’s great; that’s excellent. But you’re seeing another side. You’re seeing Andy (coach Andy Reid) taking that chance. It’s not just taking that chance on one guy. They’re taking a chance on a bunch of guys. And they’re spending money. That’s amazing. Ever since the lockout [ended], teams have to spend money."


McNabb winds up complimenting the Eagles in this CBS Sports blog, but, once again, he does so in the backhanded compliment sort of way that only Former Five could: I was there for 11 years, and the biggest thing we brought in was T.O.

He failed to finish that sentence by saying: and he got us to within one touchdown of winning it but I choked. Quite possibly literally.

Go screw.

Howie Roseman still has his life set to video game and offered Randy Moss a contract: [Pro Football Talk]

First, Karen Guregian of the Herald reports that the Eagles made an offer to Moss following his retirement.  That’s a big one, since we’re convinced the Eagles are one of the few teams for which Moss would play.  Without knowing the amount of the offer or the Eagles’ plans for Moss, it’s hard to know whether he’d be interested.


Moss did, however, file retirement papers, so it looks like he won’t accept said offer… but still… Howie… you’re a madman. I wouldn't be surprised if he offered Moss the money in straight-up cash, homey.

Word is 1993 Emmit Smith in Madden is unavailable, but Roseman hasn't ruled anything out.

[UPDATE: Grilled Reuben Frank would like us to stop with this "Randy Moss nonsense." He says the Eagles never offered him a contract. That is in direct contrast to the report from the Boston Herald reporter. Believe who you will.]

From CBS Washington:

Snider claims last year at this time Skins would get between 1,500 and 2,000 fans to watch practice.  Now, there’s only a couple hundred.

He also thinks the lockout had a lot to do with the lack of turnout.

“The lockout ended and people really weren’t quite positive when practices were and, you know, have to get off work.  So now they’re knowing after yesterday’s, everybody going  ’Where  are you?” They kind of said, “I guess we can go now.”


No, no, it’s the team.

  1. It’s offishal, Nabb’s ‘Mc’ is now formally revoked.
    And WTF’s going on with that Lacoste shirt. That croc is too big. Looks like an arsehole thing to wear to me. I hate Minnesota even more than ever now.

  2. Although it’s highly unlikely I wouldn’t quite rule out the Moss signing because we spent how many times counting on Favre submitting retirement papers….and we’re still not convinced. Although I personally think we should concentrate on getting DJAX signed–upcoming contracts include Vick, Maclin, & McCoy–how great would it be to have Ran(twan)dy?

  3. he is a bitch just let the shit go you went to another team they treated you like shit now you miss being an eagle

  4. LMAO on the ’93 Emmitt Smith comment. Friggin hysterical.
    To McNabb’s “credit,” the only reason he was talking about the Eagles is because, like everyone else, he was asked about all of their moves. What he said, though, was Donnie being himself… backhanded and whiny.
    And the Redskins? ROTFLMAO. That is all.

  5. See Don, when you were here the Eagles didn’t have two things that they definitely have right now.
    1) Cap room. The Eagles were a playoff team and were 36 MILLION DOLLARS under the cap last year. That NEVER happens.
    2) MULTIPLE GLARING NEEDS- When McNabb was here it was no secret we needed a WR. We got him T.O. They managed to give that the ole ego veto. I digress, what else did the Eagles NEED when McNabb was here? Didn’t need CB’s, or LB’s, or RB’s, he had the biggest and best line in the league…We didn’t have to make moves.

  6. You took the words right out of my mouth, The Face…I am doing the Smug Face with ya.

  7. I think it’s the Phillies bold moves the past few years combined with the city falling out of love with the Eagles and in love with the Phils that is forcing the Eagles to make bold moves of their own.

  8. What’s happening with Crossing Broad lately? Bashing Donovan? I love Philly sports, and I expect all teams to win everything (just like you all do) – but we’re still bashing McNabb? He’s complimenting the fact that the Eagles are making smart moves. He’s always been a stand-up guy. The millions of dollars he put into the hospital in Philly has been tremendous. Why do you continue to bash him? Chill buddy.
    Oh, and stop holding Pence’s balls. The fans dig his attitude, but you’re making it sound like he’s the almighty risen. He’s made a difference, but we don’t care about his twitter account.
    Most of your news is awesome…keep that up.

  9. McKnobb, puke-boi. Quick, force a pass at 527mph into the turf at the nearest open receiver’s feet. Again. Please.

  10. Come on BORED, you wouldn’t be so bored I’d you didn’t take yourself so seriously. Nobody is calling 5 a bad person, just a whiney snatch face, jump on board bored!

  11. Not to be THAT guy, but alot of companies are doing the big logo now for their golf shirts that the tour players wear so they can be picked up by the cameras. Huge UAs, Polo Horses and Crocs are the norm…but 5 shouldnt have one on.

  12. Hmm! Maybe that shirt was a Chinese knockoff like those phony Flyers Winter Classic sweaters. HA! Meanwhile, Donnie Drama needs to just stop, even when he’s far from Philly, the Eagles are never far from his mind. Talk about obsessive-compulsive behavior! Enough already, dude!
