Five years 78 million with 40 of that being guaranteed. Click Here (sports.espn.go.com).

So, were the Redskins just jealous that Vikings and Cowboys were getting all the dysfunctional press this year or what?

Put the benching aside for a second. Take that out of your mind for a moment.

Have they SEEN Donovan McNabb play this year? Does he look like a guy you'd want around for 5 more years and $78 MILLION? REALLY?

This kind of signing is par for the course for the Redskins, but it still doesn't make this move any less staggering. This is going to end very badly.

I'm as guilty of this as anyone since I predicted Washington to make the playoffs this year, but hopefully by now we all realize that no matter who the coach is, this is just a crappy franchise.

I forget if it was Mike Florio or Jason Whitlock who wrote that the real reason for Shanahan's displeasure with McNabb is that by making the offense look bad, McNabb is hurting the offensive coordinator (Kyle Shanahan)'s chances of getting a head coaching gig.

I can only assume the plan is for tonight's Eagles defense to come out, get one look at McNabb and the Skins, and just fall over laughing from the sheer lunacy of this.

Have to give the Redskins credit: Albert Haynesworth no longer is the highest paid stiff on the Redskins. That is an accomplishment.

Nothing against McNabb though I tend to think he's overrated. But when you get 59 points dropped on you in only three quarters of MNF, you should probably focus less on signing the QB and more on defenders who don't tackle like total pussies.

But then after the Giants-Cowboys game, I really shouldn't be talking. Still eating my words after talking all that crap to Dallas fans.

As fun as it assuredly is to mock the Redskins, unsurprisingly he isn't *actually* guaranteed $40m or anything like it - so sayeth Schefter (sports.espn.go.com).

In fairness, the game was over as a contest before McNabb threw even five passes during which time his only 'mistake' was to see a pass bounce off a receiver's hands into the grateful arms of young Coleman.

I find myself in the curious position of being in complete agreement with a Giants fan ;)

Yet, the Redskins did pay a lot for a defense guy who sits on the bench most of the time due to a pissing contest with the coach. The Redskins need to learn how to scout talent and draft instead of spending money on square pegs to fit round holes.

I liked Whitlock's reaction to the mess Click Here (msn.foxsports.com)

It's been said before, but he's right the Redskins suck.

I've been sick of Shanahan for years, and I cannot wait for Gruden to get out of the booth.

If I'm not too much mistaken...

Didn't they re-sign McNabb for five years and $78M less than a week after he got pulled from the final moments of a close game because he "lacks the conditioning necessary to run the two-minute drill"?

How the hell do they think he'll hold up, physically, five years from now?!

I'm of the firm notion that Dan Snyder rationalizes he can make a crap ton of money without ever having a winning team, just so long as he has a newsworthy team. I'm not one for conspiracy theories either, but how can someone with THAT much cash have their head THAT far up their rectum? It's befuddling.

The funny thing about that quote is that while it's 100% correct, it's also even more accurate for the Cowboys and Jerry Jones. Granted, Jones is actually trying to win so badly, but he seems to do everything he can to have people talk about the team non-stop, more so than any other team. So Snyder might want a 'newsworthy' team, but his won't even be the most noticed in his own division, much less the NFL. It makes you realize that his notion is even more ass backwards the more you look into it.

The one good move Snyder did last off-season was to hire a real GM. Jones needs to do that as well.
