Oh man, I'd love to catch some passes from Donovan McNabb. "I saw some of the things he did with you when you were playing with him. He did a great job getting you the ball. Yeah, that would be tremendous. ... That would be outstanding.The other plea for McNabb came from a receiver on the team that currently has McNabb's rights. Redskins wide receiver Anthony Armstrong, who had a strong rookie year teaming with McNabb on numerous deep passes, said that he'd like to have McNabb stay with the Redskins during his show on the Sports Journey Broadcast Network.
Bring back my man No. 5 . . . I think that once he gets this year under his belt and he gets more confident with the way this offense goes it’ll be more be more dangerous and more explosive,” Armstrong added. “Whenever you have a guy that’s going to run the keeps and then he’ll take off and run for 10 yards the defense is going to have to pick and choose what he does. He has a big arm so he can thrown the ball deep.Of course, the decision as to McNabb's ultimate team in 2011 will not be made by players, no matter how hard they lobby. One could make the case that the Redskins and 49ers are the least likely places for McNabb to play in 2011. I don't have to go into all of the details to the readers here but it is clear that the bridge between McNabb and the Redskins has been thoroughly doused in gasoline and the match has been lit. It is hard to figure out why Harbaugh, in possession of a brand new five-year, $25-million contract and armed with a top-10 draft pick, would want to start out his NFL coaching career with an aging signal caller.
