When I first went to watch this video, I was pretty sure that it was just going to be a lot of Donovan McNabb bitching about his time in Washington. But as this video went on I don’t think that was the case. I really think that Donovan sees himself in Robert Griffin III, I really do. He knows what the deal is in Washington. He knows that Mike Shanahan is not going to cater to any player. He knows that if the offense doesn’t work under RGIII, then Shanahan is going to blame it on RGIII. It will never be Mike or Kyle Shanahan’s fault. Never. So I definitely see what Donovan is getting at in this interview. Most people are going to criticize McNabb for simply being bitter about his time with the Redskins, and that may be true, but there is some truth to what he is saying. How can you criticize McNabb for wanting RGIII to have a good start in his career. You can’t knock McNabb for saying that the Redskins are not the place for RGIII. Unfortunately for RGIII, he doesn’t really have a choice in the matter. And since the Colts and Irsay aren’t fooling anyone by saying that they don’t know if they’re going to draft Luck, RGIII may be out of luck. Lets just hope that at the end of RGIII’s career, Donovan McNabb is saying that he told us so.
