The impact of the McNabb trade

Posted by Darren Urban on April 5, 2010 – 11:12 am

Betcha you didn’t think I’d touch this subject. The most obvious impact of the Donovan McNabb-to-Washington trade here in Arizona? It officially closes the door on the closed door that too many kept thinking was left slightly ajar, most recently by misinterpretations of coach Ken Whisenhunt. But there are, of course, others:

— Neither the Eagles or Redskins are on the 2010 schedule, and given the way Mike Shanahan never even dressed his starting quarterback all those years the Cards and Broncos closed out the preseason, I don’t expect McNabb to be playing in the preseason finale this year either. So the Cards aren’t affected on the field. This year, anyway.

— It will be interesting to see how the contract extension talks go between McNabb and the Redskins. Does it wait until after the season? Might the franchise tag come into play? Will McNabb want a chance to be free and maybe try and get to Arizona or Minnesota after one year in D.C.? If he signs an extension, all that is out the window. (The impending lockout makes the story even more juicy; if McNabb has a chance to nail down some decent up-front money in-season, does he take it with the chance there will be a work stoppage that could completely mess with 2011 free agency?)

— It makes the Redskins, on paper, more of a contender than they were last week. Can they overcome their other obstacles, like questions on the offensive line and receiver? If they can, it’s another team to overcome for the playoffs if you are the Cardinals.

— The Eagles are another story. Until Kevin Kolb shows he is the real deal, I don’t see how anyone sees Philly any differently than the Cards — a playoff potential that must prove they can answer questions at quarterback.

— The Cardinals pick so far down in the first round that the Redskins’ decision to get McNabb and presumably not take a QB probably won’t make an impact — unless Jimmy Clausen slips all the way into the 20s and the Cards either a) have to make a decision on him themselves or b) another team takes him instead later, setting up some dominoes that allows a surprise to be waiting at No. 26.

    This was a surprising trade especially Donovan going to the redskins in the same division? I’m assuming the eagles also now have to change their playbook since Donovan has known it for 11 years???

    Now maybe we can end all the comments about needing/wanting/hoping/wishing/thinking/dreaming etc. McNabb to play for the Cards. Frankly, I was getting as tired of those comments as Darren was.

    This trade has nothing to do with the Cards. Mcnabb wasnt coming here, Campbell isnt coming here. Clausen isnt falling that far. The skins could still draft him, the Bills, Broncos or Browns could grab him. And dont forget the 49ers could grab him with one of their 2 picks.
    Either way, it doesnt effect the cards .

    True, Darren, I didn’t expect you to bring this topic up. However, your discussion about the up-front money that McNabb would want to secure with an extension coupled with your mention of our draft situation makes me ask; with the threat of a work stoppage in 2011, will there even be a draft that season? I assume they have until opening day to get an agreement in place but how does a stoppage affect the draft and new player situation?

    Regardless of a lockout, there will be a draft in 2011. Now, how soon those guys are signed will be a different issue based on the CBA talks.

    ok Lienart its your time division champs again lets go cards.

  9. By John on Apr 5, 2010 | Reply

    With 17 days till the draft, its time we turn our attention to it. So here is my latest mock of Card picks
    First, let me say, I believe the Broncos will take Dez Bryant, The Giants grab Rolando McClain, The Titans take Jason Pierre-Paul, the Falcons take Brandon Graham and the Eagles take Devon McCourty.
    So, with the 26th pick,
    1st Round – Sean Weatherspoon, OLB its very possible
    he drops, and the Cards thank God. A true
    leader, Weatherspoon can cover backs and
    TE’s and play the run exceptially.
    Others; Hughes and Cody
    2nd round – Akawasi Owusu Ansah CB; AOA could be a
    shut down CB opposite DRC. At 6′ 207lbs
    he runs a 4.32 40. 8 picks as a junior.
    Stopped throwing his way as a senior.
    Also, 3 punt returns for tds and 2 KO tds.
    last season. 9 career returns for tds.
    others; Cam Thomas, Sean Lee
    3rd round – Torrell Troop, NT; Powerful run stuffer
    can hold up against double teams and give
    us that inside presense.
    3rd round – Dorin Dickerson, TE; Dickerson is small
    for an inline TE. But his versitility will
    allow him to play fullback, WR and H-Back.
    He can seal the edge blocking, and his 4.4
    speed will create mismatches. Before you
    dismiss, Mike Miller was not only at the
    workout, he went down to the field to
    further work him out. He may play special
    teams also.
    others;Jerome Murphy,John Jerry,Navarro
    Bowman, Thad Gibson
    4th round – John Skelton, QB. Strong arm, can make the
    throws outside the hash and down the field
    Big QB, might be a nice fit.pick from
    others; Kyle Calloway, Jarret Brown,John
    Crompton,Phillip Dillard
    5th round – traded
    6th round – Dexter Davis, passrusher; Davis is not
    Stout enough to play end. Hes not athletic
    enough to play OLB. But his 31 sacks were
    no fluke. Bring him in in passing
    situations and let him go.
    7th round – Cody Grimm, SS. Coach Grimm’s son will
    play special teams and backup Wilson.

    OK, I didnt pick a passrusher till the 6th round. Why? I went back and looked at Cody Browns old scouting reports. His 11.5 sacks as a senior is as good as anyone in the draft. He was considered raw but very athletic. Porter gives us the luxury to see what we have in him.
    Will Davis was also a DE converted to OLB. His junior year he showed quickness and had 9.5 sacks. He injured his ankle his senior year and was limited. As a reserve he had 2 sacks for the cards. Because we have a proven passrusher,(Porter), we got time for them to develop.

    OK guys, fire away.

    Or c) Clausen drops to the Cards and they trade out of there with a team looking to move up and grab him. I wouldn’t mind if they moved back a few spots and picked up an extra draft pick from a team looking to add Clausen.

    So for a second round pick we could have had a 6 time pro bowl QB who is younger than Peyton Manning, led the league in over 30 yd completions last year, and loves AZ for less $ than KW was slated to make. I wonder how Fitz really feels about this. You know, if it was a first and a play maker or even a second and a play maker I might understand this, and I am no Leinart hater…he is going to be good, maybe great…but when. This is unbelievable

    The Eagles simply realized that they cannot and will not win a Super Bowl with Mcnabb at Qb. Thus trading him to the weakest of the 4 division teams doesn’t really hurt them much either. If he couldn’t get it done in Philly, there’s no way he gets it done in Washington.

    Why would a team trade there face of the franchise to a division rival? This makes no sense to me. Brett Favre proved he can still win. Now McNabb is no Favre, I know, but I just don’t get it. That would be like us trading Wilson to the 49ers. Or better yet Fitzgerald to the 9ers. More power to them but I wouldn’t do it. No matter what was offered. It would have to be too good to be true and then I would think about it. Division rivals should be hated and beatin’ even in the offseason. I am glad that we don’t have that drama in our nest. Why would a team do that?

    The thing that is great for AZ is all of the NFL Organizations (except Miami) look at Mike Shanahan and Mike Holgren, and judge what they do at quarterback as a watermark. That Shanahan got McNabb signals to every other team he doesn’t think any QB (with the exception of Sam Bradford, who is going to be picked by the Rams) is worth a draft pick on.

    The great thing for AZ is the QB they will go after (and they will) will be there for them. Coach Whiz is going to have “his guy”at QB. The only reason he didn’t draft one before is he had Kurt Warner, a FHoF. Matt is going to be gone after this year, because he is a “West Coast” offense QB, and AZ under Coach Whiz does not run a West Coast offense.

    Whiz needs a “big arm”. Thus he brought in Derek Anderson, but only signed him for 2 yrs. So, he’s looking at the draft with two or three players in mind, that will need to sit on the bench for 2 years before taking over.

    In light of the fact Marc Bulger was released today, will the Cards pick him up, leaving Leinart & Anderson to battle for the starters role, with the loser being dealt? Do not care much for DA but Bulger would fill the veteran’s role much more smoothly than Anderson. Do you really think DA wants to be the back up?

    I like that Paris Lenon is taking this to heart. he is ready to establish his own identity and you can tell. I see him comming out and really benefiting the cards, Lenon and Hayes are gonna tear it up with some solid football smarts and tackling skills.
    Lenon has lost games for most of his career, although his stats are not bad. I expect him to have a career changeing season this year and hopefully from now on.

    I’m glad we didnt get Mcnab, that mans accuracy is something to puke over. Seriously, Andy Reid held on to him for to long, I think. Having Campbel and mcnab makes the Redskins QB depth quite similar in style, thats always good.

    In the Mike Lenon writeup, DC Bill Davis said ‘the plan is to take an ILB early in the draft’. With that being either first or second round, and McLain off the board, does that mean Weatherspoon, Lee or Spikes? I’m thinking NT or CB would be an early priority, considering DL is deep in this draft and if DRC, Wilson, McFadden or Rhodes goes down, the replacements are Ware, Adams, Jones, Abdullah and Johnson.

    It’s Paris Lenon, to begin with (wow, already people forget his name … 🙂 )

    Early in the draft could be anytime, I would guess. I mean, if one is there in the first round, fine. If not, fine. I don’t think he meant first round absolutely.

    and well, we can make no prophecies, so we can’t know how is going to be leinart’s play level this season. but do you think the team will look for an extension to leinart after his contract is over? even if for a change in the QB depth chart that’ll put anderson to play?

    Deuce has a tender offer on the table. He just hasn’t signed it. Leinart, meanwhile, has to prove himself and if he does, I am sure the Cards will want to rework his deal.

    We can realistically get jimmy clausen, bear with me now. With McNabb heading to washington for at least next season, washington obviously doesn’t need a qb now. I’ve checked out the draft order lately and saw that cleveland and buffalo are the only ones that would realistically get clausen. Holmgren already said he likes clausen but doesn’t love him. Buffalo likes their qbs(edwards, fitzpatrick, brohm), and everybody is starting to believe they go OT with their ninth pick, so where would jimmy fall? All the way to Arizona and we wouldn’t even have to move up. He would present the best value also at 26 without question. I wouldn’t mind moving up if he’s free- falling just to make sure we get him.

    The Lambs have won 6 games over the last three years. Why would we want to dumpster dive for their castoffs?

    Kurt Warner had a Superbowl caliber team in St Louis, that went down the tubes under Bulger.

    Kurt Warner had a a Superbowl caliber team in Arizona, do people really want to give Bulger the opportunity to do his magic again?

    Okay I am starting to think we’re drafting a CB 1st round, LB Weatherspoon, and DT Williams stocks are just rising, so i strongly doubt we’ll get ’em, plus, Whiz and Davis seem very happy with LB Lenon (nice blog on Lenon by the way) and i really think Bryan Robinson will re-sign sometime after the draft. Back to the CB’s, we scouted Kyle Willson hardcore and visited with Kareem Jackson, which leaves me to believe Devin McCourty (also a PR) could be our potential first rounder. Besides the first round, i think ILB Donald Butler could be a great option in the 2nd, or we could trade up our 2nd rounder for somewhere around 38-42nd overall to get LB Daryl Washington. Drafts going to be interesting, and im pumped.

    Mike Shanahan is one of the best coaches ever. He knows how to build champions. Step #1 in Washington: Trade his garbage early 2nd round pick and a third or 4th for an elite Franchise QB.

    Too bad the Cardinals were stupid on this one. No Superbowl in Arizona this year.

    By the way. McNabb will finish his career in Washington. QB’s like McNabb don’t come along very often. McNabb should win a superbowl or 2 before he retires. Lets see where our 1st round 26th pick is when Donovan retires.

    In 2 -4 years when we get a QB it will be too late. If you think I am wrong, thats what people said when I said Farve would do awesome in Minnesota. It was obvious. Just like McNabb is obviously one of the best.

    If you are so sure McNabb is going to win a title in Washington, let’s see you actually use your real name instead of hiding behind a fake one.

    And you talk like the Cardinals have no chance to win anything down the road. If any team is set up that their window permanently closes after a group of players comes through, they’ve got much bigger problems than just the quarterback.

    We really messed up here. Mcnabb is a great QB, guess the coaching staff has more faith in Anderson than Mcnabb. We will see how that turns out!!!

    The Eagles wanted change and the Redskins need to sell tickets, maybe get to .500. Any true football fan would not have been mad seeing McNabb come to AZ. But the Cards brought in DA and Matt will be ready.

    My concern is if the Cards don’t draft a QB {and there is a possible work stoppage in 2011}, waiting till 2012 or beyond for Whiz to get the QB that can be developed to run his system and how much time that will take.

    My Uh-Oh If the Cards don’t do well in the short term and Tomlin tanks in Pitts then could we see Whiz back in the AFC North?

    Whiz deserves the contract he worked hard to get. He helped turn this Cardinal franchise around. As long as the Cards are winning he hopefully stays.

    Many think this is a make or break year for Matt and that is probably true there are Heisman trophy winners that went bust. Matt has plenty to motivate him. That’s good for the Cards.

    WE DO NOT WANT BULGER! He will want a chance to “start over” somewhere and we already have two guys who feel they are starting material. Unless we cna get a very humble Bulger very cheap why in the world go there? Leinart, Anderson, St. Pierre more than get the job done.

    My question is now what kind of trade we are putting together to get McNabb from the Redskinns. . . . . .

  49. By cards62 on Apr 6, 2010 | Reply

    2010 is definitely a make or break year for Matt Leinart. No team has a crystal ball so all teams make gambles on the future and we are betting our future on Matt. I have my doubts on Matt, but I agree we give him his shot in 2010.
    I wanted Bulger for our backup in 2010 so I wish the cards would have waited, but I understand the Cards signing Anderson as he was on the market and Bulger was not. I do not think we try and sign Bulger now. I did like McNabb as a backup plan for the 2011 season in case Matt fails in 2010 so I will hope he does not sign an extension with the Redskins during 2010. Normally we all know an extension would be signed, but with no CBA next year who knows for sure, I do want to get Matt a left tacklw with our first round pick if a great one is available. GO Cards and in Matt we trust!

If it’s Breaston , is CARDS management going to look at giving him a REAL contract for a few years? … I mean this tender offer stuff is crap for a REAL #2 WR… Kinda makes me think the CARDS will be drafting a WR with one of their first 4 picks!!!

    For the 2011 season, I have heard “lockout” & “work stoppage.”

    “Lockout” sounds like an action by the owners.

    “Work Stoppage” sounds like an action by the players.

    Which do you anticipate, and would each mean no football, or would there be replacement players?

    Thanks. I very much enjoy your stories and blog!

  54. By darrenurban on Apr 6, 2010 | Reply

    Dick —

    Lockout would definitely be owner-induced. To me, work stoppage could mean no games, no matter who is pushing the subject. Without getting complicated, there cannot be replacement players in a lockout, because the players, in theory, want to keep playing (under current labor rules) and are being locked out. Only if the players strike can replacement players be used.

    I don’t know what to think. Right now, the current CBA is going to expire in March, 2011. The players want the status quo, and would agree to extending the deadline to keep talking. The owners, who feel they agreed to a bad deal in 2006, want a new CBA. We will see what that means after the 2010 season. If we get closer to the time, I am sure I will write more on the subject.

    Dylan, your stupid if you think Matt is some all star QB. He was a College star woooopdy dooo. ML has messed up in every single game after his first two starts in the NFL. Teams have the playbook on how to shut him down. We will be up against his old coach from college, that dosnt bold well for Matt in two games. ML has everything it takes to be an ok qb exept a good arm. Its going to be DA starting for the a few weeks into the season if not week one. ML will not be able to get the ball to fitz. And Dylan I am starting to believe that you and that Scott H are the same person because you both think ML is payton. Like how stupid is that.

    Ok. I get so tired of all the NFC East coverage on all the networks. It is only four teams yet they think the entire NFL universe revolves around them. Crimeny!! not even the AFC East gets this much attention. Except for maybe the Jets. No, i’m not bitter, lol, but c’mon….Anyway, I don’t normally do this but here are my predictions for the NFC East….

    Dallas Cowboys 11-5
    NY Giants 10-6
    Philadelphia Eagles 8-8
    Washington Redskins 5-11

    Just havin’ some fun but as someone said above if McNabb couldn’t do it in Philly he won’t do it in Washington. He is no farve and even he went to a team loaded with talent. Why are people hung up on a guy who really hasn’t won anything but one NFC Championship? And in my opinion cashed it in in the final minutes of the Super Bowl. Darren I truly enjoy your work and lookforward to coming home and finding a new blog that you posted. I get surprised when I see a new article. lol.

    ML first 2 games of his rookie season weren’t even that great….. which makes me believe you have no clue what your talking about his best games of the year were in the end. basically. he has a decent arm too. im not saying he is peyton but he had better stats as a rookie then peyton did as a rookie. and sanchez and ben roth. and eli manning so how are you saying he is a bust. he played under horrible coaches and yet still managed to play okay. god all im saying tyman is give ML the chance he has earned. and good thing he is getting it. and super glad your not the coach tyman cause you would destroy this team

    Darren just stirring it up. Whiz wants to finish what he started and that is to win Super Bowls in AZ. There is so much expectation. Like Breaston as the #2 WR I know defensive CB’s are losing sleep thinking about how they will stop him compared to Boldin????? (ish) Whiz understands how to get the most out of players just look at the core of the team that was brought in under Dennis Green. Whiz saw the talent here and even though some of those key elements are gone it will be interesting to see the transition at QB and how this team will respond to all the changes this year compared to last year. Will the Cards continue their claim on destiny or regress? This is the challenge every player on this team must accept remember even with KW at QB some home games still were tough to sell out. Winning is the Cure All!!!!! Go Cards!!!!

    Hey Rush, oh I ment to say scott H. You have did nothing but hate on an all star QB in Mcnabb. The redskins are a super bowl contender now. We realy missed out on a guy that can get the ball to fitz. We will all have to wait and see how it all turns out, but dahm I think this is one a lot of teams in the NFL will be regreting halfway into this year. We have 0 QB’s that have even won a playoff game. I think we are in big trouble. I hope Anderson can step up and win us some games so our team dosnt fall apart.

    Alright, alright. C’mon, now…I’m not really hating on McNabb as much as it might seem. As I said in a previous post, he is actually a good person and a class act…OFF THE FIELD! On the field…what can I tell you – I just don’t want the guy! I don’t know where you live, so I may have an opportunity that you do not. I live right outside Philly and I have been a daily witness to Mcnabb’s career since the day he was drafted. And all I can tell you is that just about EVERYONE here is thrilled that MCNabb is gone and the Kevin Kolb era is about to start. Well…what does that tell you??? You can look at his career numbers and see anything you want to see. But when you watch him every week, you realize that he is NOT an accurate passer ( VERY erratic ) and he just does not win in the big games. He also tends to be entirely too sensitive in a way that is hard to understand if you haven’t seen it, heard it all these years. Could he do well in Washington? Hey, maybe. Mike Shannahan may get more out of him than Reid did. That would not surprise me. But did the Redskins just become a Super Bowl caliber team because of McNabb’s arrival? No, they absolutely did not. Just sayin, that’s my opinion. You’ve got yours. Time will tell. Fact is, I don’t care about McNabb OR the Redskins. I say let’s agree to disagree and get back to being Cardinal fans.
