Eagles Fans: Vote Donovan McNabb for Pro Bowl '10

Written By Bob Cunningham On Thursday, April 08, 2010

Love him or hate him, vote McNabb to the '10 Pro Bowl.

As many of you know, I was, and still am, of the thinking that moving Donovan McNabb was a terrible mistake -- especially moving him inside the division. However, I am an Eagles fan first, and a McNabb fan second.

Because of that, it is the duty of every Eagles fan to vote for Donovan McNabb when the Pro Bowl voting comes around.

Regardless of whether or not the Redskins are 8-0 or 0-8, whether he's thrown 20 touchdowns or two, every fan must vote for the new Redskins quarterback.

Why? Well, because if McNabb goes to the Pro Bowl in 2010, the fourth-round pick the Eagles are currently due to receive from the 'Skins turns into a third. The other way is if McNabb plays 70 percent of the snaps and the 'Skins win nine games, but that team winning nine games is still a bit far-fetched.

Outside of trading for McNabb and bringing in Mike Shanahan, the team is essentially the same and will have a problem scoring points. The defense is good, and looks to get better under Jim Haslett, but even McNabb won't be able to resurrect that offense.

The fan vote is only worth about 25 percent, but with McNabb's name he should only have to have a slightly above-average season to make it into the NFL's All-Star game -- especially if Brett Favre doesn't return to the Vikings.

So, Eagles fans, when the time comes make sure you vote McNabb into the Pro Bowl, even at the expense of voting for Kolb (fingers crossed he actually deserves it). You've actually got the chance to influence what draft pick the Eagles will take from the 'Skins, so make sure you do your civic duty!

But, just to be safe, don't tell the Redskins fans we're doing this. They're just gonna vote for him too and unknowingly further our cause... they're so stupid.
