Yep, That's Donovan McNabb In A Redskins Uniform

Posted by Matt Terl on April 15, 2010 – 1:02 pm

I tried a few different variations on the headline: “Hey, you wanna see something weird?” Or “A Slightly Unusual Sight”. Or even what I tweeted with a similar picture, “Well, This’ll Take Some Getting Used To”.

But in the end, I think the pictures mostly speak for themselves.

When a new player comes to town in the offseason, especially a superstar-caliber guy, teams find themselves faced with a problem: there’s absolutely no pictures of the guy in his new uniform, and there’s only so many times you can stall by using a picture in warm-ups, a Pro Bowl uni, or a suit. So you need a photo shoot — with a professional photographer, not me, obv — and you need a uniform, and this is what you get: Donovan McNabb in his burgundy-and-gold number 5.

McNabb downplayed any strangeness and said that he was getting used to it already, but … well, I’m going to need a little longer than a fifteen minute photo shoot to get used to this. Maybe I’m overly sensitive.

Anyhow, more pictures of this still-odd sight after the jump; click any photos to enlarge.
