The Philadelphia Eagles or any professional sports franchise in Philly can be very difficult to play for as there is a lot pressure put on the superstar players.

Obviously, pressure on professional athletes is nothing new, but in Philadelphia it can be extremely harsh as winning is the only thing this passionate city will except as Philly has arguably the most unruly fans in the country.

With that being said and the face that NFL football is arguably the most popular professional sports in the country, the fans can be absolutely brutal to the face of the Eagles franchise. The face of the Philadelphia Eagles NFL franchise over the last 11 years has been none other than six-time Pro Bowl quarterback Donovan McNabb.

Even though McNabb has been able to lead the Philadelphia Eagles to five NFC championship games and one Super Bowl appearance, the fans in Philly have always pointed the finger at the superstar quarterback for the Eagles not being able to win a Super Bowl.

Obviously, that is bit harsh to say the least as the Philadelphia Eagles wouldn’t have experienced the kind of success they had over the past decade or so without him behind center.

Well, now both the Washington Redskins and the Philadelphia Eagles have drastically changed the outlook of their NFL franchises moving forwards as Philly will try and compete without their Pro Bowl quarterback and the Skins will look to make their team relevant in the NFC once again with franchise caliber player at the helm.

Personally, even though the Philadelphia Eagles have Kevin Kolb and Michael Vick to take McNabb’s place, I believe the Washington Redskins really came out on top in this deal as they will without doubt be a much better team with the Pro Bowler taking the snaps from now on.

The Redskins still have a lot of moves to make in order to be force to be reckoned with in the NFC Conference, but adding McNabb was without a doubt a step in the right direction as he will be a much needed stability to the struggling Washington offense.

Even though the Redskins need at least one or two more Pro Bowl caliber wide receivers to give McNabb some much needed targets, Washington does have two solid players at tight end in Chris Cooley and Fred Davis and a talented trio at running back in Larry Johnson, Clinton Portis and Willie Parker.

There is no doubt in my mind that this team can compete in the NFC this season, but they are a definitely a few more pieces to the puzzle away from becoming a serious force to be reckoned with or a possible Super Bowl title contender.

The NFL regular season is still two months away and anything can happen from here on out in terms of moves being made by the Washington Redskins, but they will definitely have to address McNabb’s lack of wide receiver options in the offense.
