In baseball, it is common for teams not to trade star players to division rivals. But what was the value of Donovan McNabb? He was officially traded to the Redskins for a 2nd-round pick in the 2010 draft, and a 3rd OR 4th-round pick in the 2011 draft. All this according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Now I don't want to immediately say that this trade is horrible, but what exactly were the Eagles thinking?

The Raiders offered them a way better deal AND the Eagles traded them to possibly their biggest rival. This trade is a major bust for the Eagles, and a BIG gain for the Redskins.

I want to be in the front office of the Eagles while this trade is being negotiated. How in the world is this an acceptable trade? Its completely one-sided.

I dont want to say to much, because I am not an Eagles fan, but you cant be happy that your six time pro-bowl quarterback was traded for rubbish in return. Not only that he has taken Philadelphia to the playoffs year-in and year-out.

Is Kevin Kolb really the future of this team?
