BREAKING: Donovan McNabb gets a 5-year, $78 million extension? Huh?

This doesn't make a bit of sense. Last week, the guy was according to his own coach "Out of condition" to lead the two-minute offense at the end of a game. This week, he signs a mega-contract, $40 million of which is guaranteed? To steal and old quote: "What's up wit dat?"

McNabb, who is in his first year with the Redskins hasn't exactly lit things up since moving down I-95. He hasn't been horrible, but has been somewhat less than impressive for the 4-4 'Skins. But hey, maybe they know something we don't.

We guess that Shaun Hill, Jon Kitna and Jason Campbell must be in for some big pay raises too. All of them have a...much higher QB rating than McNabb.

Read the original story from the 4-Letter (ESPN)'s Michael Smith RIGHT HERE

We do realize that this is Little Napolean Dan Snyder that we are talking about here and that Snyder is notorious for handing out bizarre contracts to guys a few years past their prime. While we like McNabb and thought he was absolutely fantastic when in Philly, he's done nothing in Washington. In Philly, he carried that team for years when the receiving corp consisted of guys like Freddy Mitchell. Really, he doesn't have much to work with in Washington either.

The big difference, Philadelphia had some really good QB's ready to replace McNabb, Washington....not so much.

Hey, we could be wrong about this and he could lead the Redskins to Super Bowl glory and all that. But we don't see it.

Check out this story from earlier this week talking about McNabb's benching in Detroit 2-weeks ago. Thanks to for this:
