One Easter Ago the Redskins Traded for McNabb

I had to eat dinner tonight with this hanging on the wall 5 feet from me.

I have something new to pray for - that I don't spend every Easter Sunday wasting time thinking about the Donovan McNabb trade because it almost killed what was an awesome drinking day in Annapolis. If you recall, it was Easter Sunday last year the Redskins traded for McNabb. The Mottrams had the best headline ever, "Redskins Crucify Jason Campbell on Easter." Classic. Anyway, my girlfriend and I just went to grab dinner in Chinatown and I look up at the wall and here's this picture. I mean....all I can do is laugh and shake my head, right? What are the odds? Hail to the Redskins indeed. The title should now be, "Not Even Jesus Can Save the Redskins."

If there's any silver lining, the 2nd round pick the Eagles used from the Redskins, Nate Allen, did not have a break out season. He had season ending knee surgery after having played 13 games, so the jury is still out. Ironically, he did intercept McNabb if you recall.
