Mike Shanahan's Response To Donovan McNabb's Agent

Posted by Matt Terl on December 23, 2010 – 7:23 pm


Donovan McNabb‘s agent Fletcher Smith released a statement today, ostensibly to “clarify some misinterpretations”. For purposes of this statement, clarifying misinterpretations seemed to be pretty much synonymous with “expressing his frustration with Mike and especially Kyle Shanahan”. If that paraphrase doesn’t sum everything up to your satisfaction, you can read the entire statement over at CSNWashington.com.

This evening, Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan issued this response:

“As I stated earlier, when I traded for Donovan McNabb I had hoped that he would lead us to the playoffs. No one wanted him to be more successful than me. When the team was 5-8 and mathematically out of the playoffs, I made the decision to evaluate our other two quarterbacks. This was not personal, but strictly professional. The decision was made in the best interest of the Washington Redskins and I stand by my decision. I will attempt to talk to Fletcher Smith directly to clear up every one of his misconceptions.”

I’m sure we’ll have plenty more about this tomorrow. Ah, Christmas Eve at Redskins Park.
