Move over Obama, There's a New Sheriff in Town.

The never-ending Donovan McNabb trade saga that happens year after year has finally gone from rumor to reality. The Philadelphia Eagles pulled the trigger on a deal, sending the veteran quarterback to their NFC East rival Washington Redskins earlier this week. The Eagles who have been shopping McNabb for a good portion of the offseason will receive the number 37 overall pick in the 2010 draft as well as either a third or fourth round pick in 2011. It’s no real news that McNabb had worn out his welcome in Philly with fans clamoring to back up Kevin Kolb to get his shot. While having the perpetual love/hate relationship with the city of Philadelphia and its rabid fanbase, it was now or never for the two sides to part ways. It didn’t matter that McNabb is the Eagles’ all time leader in yards passing (32,873), completions (2,801), attempts (4,746), completion percentage (59.0) and touchdowns passes (216) because there was no way to mend fences that have been strained for the past few seasons. He also added  3,249 yards rushing and 28 touchdowns to his list of accolades, while leading Philly to five NFC Championship games along with one Super Bowl.   So we have what is now known as another classic “Brett Favre” situation. McNabb is going to have his shot at the Eagles at least twice a year now starting for the Skins. McNabb addressed the situation with this statement, “I’m really excited about my future with the Washington Redskins. I’m eager to work with Coach (Mike) Shanahan. He’s been a very successful coach with a couple of Super Bowl victories on his resume. While it’s been my goal to win a Super Bowl in Philadelphia, we came up short. I enjoyed my 11 years here, and we shared a lot more good times than bad.” Bottom line is that McNabb has to take the politically correct approach to this situation, but believe me, he has got to be chomping at the bit to beat the hell out of the Eagles when they meet up. This move has the Redskins moving up from bottom feeders to instant contenders in the NFC. Now Eagles fans finally got what they have been calling for, so their bed is made and it’s time to lay in it.
