Donovan McBlog

Donovan continues to circle the drain; his latest outburst being a frantic cry for help on his blog (see the linked article from He is demanding playmakers and who can blame him for that? I for one cannot. However, why doesn't he just learn to keep his mouth shut or ask to be traded? Is blogging about it to the public going to make it happen? In the end, these protestations are just more examples of his whining and finger pointing. It's sad to watch.

From the article:
"He used the New England Patriots as an example of a team that 'went outside their locker room and stocked up on playmakers last year.' The Patriots, of course, went 16-0 in the regular season.

'It certainly helped to have Randy Moss, Donté Stallworth, Wes Welker and Adalius Thomas making plays for them all year,' the Eagles quarterback wrote, referring to four of New England's off-season additions."

I think it's funny that he even uses the Patriots as the if McNabb could ever display the leadership that Brady has shown. With playmakers around him in 2004 McFive showed that his numbers could be gaudy; but he still didn't have what it took to win....and in my opinion, he never will. McNabb is a very good quarterback, but will never be great because he doesn't have the leadership skills and drive to be.

Again, time to say goodbye McNabb. For your part, you deserve to play in a city that will appreciate your skill set. But Philly is tired of your whining.
