Rumblings over in the city of Detroit are calling for the Lions to inquire about the chances the Eagles would move McNabb for the second pick in the draft. They presume the Eagles would give Brady Quinn a chance.
But the truth is, Quinn won't bring back any of the people who've given up on this team. At least not until he proves he's more than just another Joey Harrington.
Donovan McNabb lining up under center in next season's opener is a different story.
A story that would make the Lions interesting again, that would get people talking again, one certainly worth making a phone call in hope of.
It's an interesting thought, but one the Eagles will likely brush off. Personally, I'm not a fan of Brady Quinn. Gary Cobb has Quinn ranked as the fifth best QB in this year's draft. The only people in Philadelphia who would welcome Quinn over McNabb would likely be the Notre Dame band wagoners, my girlfriend, and Woody's bar.
McNabb for the 2nd pick in this years draft, would you do it?
