The Maryland legal community’s best-known Redskins fan is not pleased with the addition of Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb to the roster of his favorite team. To put it mildly.
“It’s horrible,” Attorney General Doug Gansler told me this morning at the end of an interview. “Donovan McNabb has never been a good quarterback.”
“I can’t believe you’re going on the record saying that,” said his spokeswoman, who was also in the room.
“It’s very sad,” said Gansler, who in-season has a gig providing pregame commentary on Redskins games for “Redskins Kickoff.” “It’s what they always do. The Redskins will go out and try and find someone that everyone’s heard of and stick him on the team, and it’s never worked.
“Jason Campbell, if they gave him any kind of linemen, he would have been great. And then what’s going to happen is, he’s going to go to another team and be an all-pro for six years and Donovan McNabb will be watching that from his old-age home.”
“Don’t go to Philly anytime soon,” the spokeswoman warned.
