Short term, the Eagles will regret this.

Not really...

2 points...

1) The last year of McNabb's contract...Just like anyone else in his position, he wants a longterm or nothing...and the eagles weren't going to give him longterm considering he's 0-11 in Philadelphia Super Bowls...

Give him a new setting so he can reinvent himself as Mcnabb 2.0, and the Eagles themselves get some picks out of it they'd have no shot of getting after next year since his contract would've expired and he'd be an unrestricted free agent...

2) Sheldon Brown...Gone...Brian Westbrook?...Gone...Jeremiah Trotter?...Gone...

Reid was blatantly going younger...Jackson, McCoy, Macklin, and now Kolb...It's time to let the young guard be the force and not an afterthought...

"Short term regret" should not equal "Letting these guys play together so the 5-7 years after that will be fruitful."...It had to happen at SOME point...Now's the best time. (Actually, I thought 2 years ago would've been the best time)...

I agree completely........

Philly has a QB, both wide receivers, a tight end and a running back all under the age of 25. Those building blocks are huge for the near future. With a couple of extra draft picks the Eagles will be set for several years to come and I think Reid made the right choice......

On the other hand, Washington gets a veteran QB that has at least three years left in the tank for Shanahan's new system. Expect big numbers from McNabb next season. Kyle Shanahan helped Matt Schaub have a monster season last year and he's bringing the same offense to the Red Skins. I think it's a win win for both teams.......

Philly could pick up a couple of girls scouts and still beat the Lions.......

That's IF McNabb stays in Washington...

As I said, he's got this year on his contract and that's it...

Unless there was a pre-trade contract extension worked out in principle we don't know about yet, I imagine McNabb will first want to see how his first year in Washington plays out before he commits to being there longterm...

If Kolb goes down it will be even uglier, seeing Vick take over an losing to McNabb and the 'Skins? You know how ugly Philly fans can get...

I'm just saying ... potential nightmare...

McNabb has been injured multiple times throughout his career...That "potential nightmare" is not only new to the Eagles, but every team has that "potential"...

If, if, if...No team in the NFL (or any other sport) is immune to that...

As a die-hard fan myself, let's just say it would sicken me to see my franchise QB get traded to a division rival. I could never have imagined Dan Marino playing for the Jets. I'd be throwing up a little in my mouth every single day.

I'd agree except for the fact that the Redskins have been pretty useless since Snyder brought the team...Even with Gibbs they couldn't do much...AND they've had multiple top-5 picks AND high-price free agents...

With the deal the Eagles made with the Redskins, they picked up another draft pick (2nd rounder), which brings the number of picks this year to 11(!!!!)...They can have 5 or 6 busts and STILL come out smelling like a rose here...
