Donovan on DNL about Patterson/Red Flag to FA's

15 posts in this topic

Completely agree with McNabb. On DNL, he was asked what he thought about the Patterson pay cut situation. He said not only does how wrong this move was impact Patterson, but it affects everyone in the locker room, "anyone who ever wore green", and said it would be a "red flag" to potential free agents.

You are around the team front office. Is there a perception that this was a blind spot, that they just saw an opportunity to make a roster move and save 150 and didn't realize the storm that would ensue, or did something else happen? Curious to hear if it literally was something clerical they didn't see, or if it was something everyone misread.

It's not debatable that a mistake was made. By acting so quickly to make good on his salary today obviously the team is acknowledging a mistake was made.

They didn't cut his pay though.

They were going to cut his pay by 150k. They decided to pay him after his agent filed a grievance and made it public.

Only because they were getting killed in the media for what they did

Does anyone really care what McNabb says ? Why ?

Not anymore or any less than any other person in sports media.

I think less is the better answer for what I thought were obvious reasons.

Why less? He's just another former player giving his opinion. No different than any other former player. Why would I value his opinion any more or less than any other former player?

The question was why value his opinion any more or less that anyone in sports media (not as a former player).

As a former player I think he may be biased.

As a former Eagle who somehow thinks he wasn't treated fairly, I think he may be biased.

As someone who's wonderlic score was abysmal I think it is fair to scrutinize his opinions more than others.

He was a member of the organization for nearly a decade. That makes his statements worth more than someone off the street.

You should be able to watch MSNBC and Fox news and gather some information after filtering out the bias BS, the same can be said of a McNabb statement.
