PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — There’s no one better to get an Eagles quote from than Donovan McNabb. He always give you something and hey, he’s honest.
Well ton Wednesday, speaking with Dan Levy of BillyPenn.com, McNabb ripped the Eagles’ front-officer for their “dumb” decisions at the quarterback position.
“And now you sign — which was dumb — you sign Sam Bradford to a multi-year deal and give him big money, then you trade picks to move up to No. 2 – that was dumb,” McNabb said. “I mean, nothing against Carson Wentz, but why would you do that? That’s just a bad business decision from the Philadelphia Eagles.”
McNabb also defended Sam Bradford’s decision to request a trade, something Bradford has taken tremendous heat for in Philly.
“You know the whole thing about it which is funny to me?” McNabb said. “When people jumped on Sam Bradford because he was seeking a trade, I told people, man, I said ‘I’ll be honest with you, I don’t blame him.’ Think about this whole situation, and I had to explain it to people because they think he needed to come back and compete. I said even if he competes and they go 9-7 or 10-6 and he plays the whole year, it’s time for the young kid to step in and play.
“If he’s not ready in year two, then that was dumb on the Eagles’ part.”
According to BillyPenn.com, McNabb will join ESPN Radio for the football season. You can read the full interview here.
