Andy Reid Is The Only Obstacle In The Way Of Trading Donovan McNabb

The Philadelphia Eagles’ quarterback situation is a crowded one. Everyone in the organization believes that one of their three quarterbacks should be dealt. Almost everyone in the organization believes that the quarterback that should be dealt is Donovan McNabb. The lone holdout? Head coach, Andy Reid.

Back in January, Reid proclaimed that Donovan McNabb would be his starter in 2010. And judging by a report from Fox 29, he hasn’t budged off his stance one bit.

And just because I can’t help myself, Andy Reid is a pretty big obstacle.  Right?  Right?  Ok, on to the report.

Fox 29 has learned that the Philadelphia Eagles are divided on a Donovan McNabb trade, with one very powerful Eagle blocking a potential deal.

Sources tell Fox 29’s sports department that the St. Louis Rams are not one of those teams, contrary to some reports.

But we’re also being told that trading McNabb is not going to be easy because internally the Eagles’ brass wants to move him but Andy Reid does not.

It’s only right that Reid gets his pick of who he wants his quarterback to be in 2010. Why? Because at the end of the day, he could be depending on that guy to maybe keep his job. So I understand his stance. Just ponder this: Would you be confident putting your job on the line with an inexperienced Kevin Kolb or a rusty Mike Vick? I wouldn’t.

    Remember: Reid benched McNabb and Eagles paid a "Financial Apology"

    Back when the benching occurred Reid was the bad guy in McNabb’s eyes AND McNabb got a financial apology of millions of dollars from the front office. With that in mind this does not make sense…they are probably posturing to trade McNabb.
    Either way, whoever is the QB next year, its going to be a very tough schedule with many less wins. Adios #5.
