if eagles are serious about kolb as a QBOTF, they need to stop messing around with mcnabb and get some draft compensation for him.

i wouldnt look too far into the mcnabb thing, calling about availability and truely trying to get the player are two different things.

Unless there is an offer we can't resist I don't see this trade happening, Mcnabb is a big money player and money isn't what we have to spend right now.

Suddenly, Orton demands a trade because his feelings are hurt.

i wouldnt be surprised to see if thats what the broncos were calling about. if they could get mcnabb for a 3rd or 4th, they would consider it.

Mcnabb would be an immediate improvement over Orton and could hold down the fort for a couple of years while the Broncos develop a young QB. If the price is right, Mcnabb him.

Kolb is already grumbling about wanting a chance to start somewhere.

Throw in Orton to "sweeten" the deal...

Unless he's coming over with D. Jackson, I don't see the point.

not in real life, which is why i dont think anyone expects the broncos to actually try to get him, price is too high

Check me off as a no on McNabb. A big no. A no so big I might join the anti-McD crew. I want a healthy Orton in year 2 of this offense behind an improved OL.

The point is getting better at QB. The only problem is that he's so old. It'd be nice if we could go out and trade for a QB that still had plenty of years left and a lot of potential.

Wait.. The Denver Broncos are the only team giving away QBs like that.

And you will most likely get it, sir. Along with another mediocre season of pinky sacks and "Where is Royal?"

Another offseason on the tilt-a-whirl. We look frickin desperate for a QB, and now the Orton experiment may be over. I bet Bowlen had a moment of sobriety, and realized that McD might have screwed this team.

If we are gonna get a new QB, I want one of the top flight QBs in the draft, not McNabb. The Eagles are gonna want the world for him.

I thought McD wanted accurate QBs in his offense. I do want an upgrade at QB but, younger one because face it folks we need alot of pieces still. With the CBA Lockout looming a trade foir McNabb would be beyond retarded it isn't happening.

And wouldn't you wanna win until he's developed? Dawkins and Bailey aren't gonna be playing much longer. I'm fully endorsing the "Get McNabb, draft young kid, sit him for a few years, win games" idea.
