Wow. I thought McNabb had a few good years left. This means he's washed up.

I'm just surprised Snyder didn't overpay for him.

Maybe the Rooney's will punish Ben by trading him to Cleveland.

Eagles trade Donovan McNabb to NFC East rival Redskins
08:24 PM

The Philadelphia Eagles traded Pro Bowl QB Donovan McNabb to their NFC East rivals, the Washington Redskins, on Sunday. Redskins coach Mike Shanahan confirmed the deal to USA TODAY's Jarrett Bell.

The Redskins will surrender a second-round pick this year (No. 37) and either a third- or fourth-round pick next year, Fox Sports and NFL.com reported.

McNabb has been the Eagles starter since 1999, when the club drafted him with the second overall pick. He brought the team to five NFC championship games and to Super Bowl XXXIX.

But Eagles coach Andy Reid said late last month that he was entertaining offers for all of his QBs -- including Kevin Kolb and Michael Vick. McNabb then said he wanted to remain with the Eagles, but whatever happened he wanted to move quickly.

Kolb, who filled in for McNabb in two starts last September, will become the Eagles' presumptive starter.

McNabb, 33, is entering the final year of his contract. -- Sean Leahy
wait a second... reed has said on several occassions., mcnabb WILL BE the starting qb for the eagles in 2010 ... wow...guess you can't believe anything you hear...unless of course its from the steeers...

I've been a Steelers fan for the last 35 years, but I live just outside of Philadelphia and have had to deal with Eagles fans my whole life. They won't appreciate what they had until they see what they are stuck with. 82-45-1 record as a starter. There are more accurate passers in the league, but right at about 60% complete for his career and one of the lowest interception % of any starting QB ever......and they have NEVER liked him in Philly. Trading to a division rival no less. I can see him lighting the Eagles up, especially since the Redskins have a successful NFL coach at the reigns. By week 5 I assume the Boobirds will be looking for blood and bemoaning the loss of McNabb. Incredibly dumb move.

Minnesota will be kicking themselves. When Favre pulls the pin they will be left with not much.

Traded within your division to me is the ultimate insult. Your former owners are saying that they arent scared to face you twice a year.

Well, I guess it finally happened. There have been McNabb trade rumors for years, and now, finally, one actually comes to pass. But to a division rival? WTF??? You have to think this automatically makes the Redskins a playoff contender.
