Brian Dawkins, a player who is familiar with landing with another team after spending over a decade with the Eagles, thinks that the Eagles should have kept Donovan McNabb. Dawkins had this to say about the situation:
When you have a guy that’s playing at a level he’s still playing at, to me, you don’t get rid of the guy.
Dawkins may very well believe this, but you know his message definitely is a bit of a shot at the Eagles for the way they treated him. He had a helluva year after leaving the Eagles, and I’m sure he hopes that Donovan McNabb does too.
After leaving the Eagles, Dawkins had a Pro Bowl season with Denver and a solid game in a return to Philadelphia. If McNabb follows a certain path, the Eagles will be strongly scrutinized. The thing that would make it worse in McNabb’s case is that the Eagles have to see him the Redskins twice each year and McNabb will be there for a few years.
In the end, let’s hope that McNabb doesn’t have the same success as Dawkins (at least not against the Eagles).
