Unless fifteen signal callers pull out of the Pro Bowl this year, the Eagles will receive the Washington Redskins 4th round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft to complete last Easter’s Donovan McNabb trade.
At the time, the Redskins sent the Eagles the second round pick (Nate Allen) plus a conditional pick in the 2011 draft. If McNabb made the Pro Bowl, or he played 70 percent of the team’s snaps and the Redskins won at least nine games, the pick would have been a third rounder.
With the Redskins pitiful 17-16, heartbreaking loss to the Bucs on Sunday because of a guy who couldn’t kick his way to first base in a kindergarten game of kickball, the team now stands at 5-8. The best they can hope for is eight wins.
As far as a McNabb Pro Bowl appearance goes, the man has 15 picks this year and has not showed much of his former stud self in DC.
At this point, hope the Redskins lose out — highly probable — so we get a high fourth round pick that may actually be worth something.
