The keep-me-in-the-spotlight-at-all-costs soap opera continues for Donovan McNabb. Following an illustrious 13-year career that included four straight trips to the NFC title game and one to the Super Bowl, McNabb was recently honored by the Philadelphia Eagles as he announced his retirement with the team he enjoyed his best years with.
He may be done suiting up in the NFL, but apparently he is not nearly done with the League, if you know what we’re saying. The former Pro Bowler has been keeping a very close eye on Washington Redskins signal-caller Robert Griffin III.
Now he seems miffed that RGIII wants nothing to do with him. In June, McNabb took to the public sphere to criticize RGIII’s handling of the media circus as he rehabbed from a torn ACL. After that, he stated that he would like to sit down with the former Heisman Trophy winner to dispense what he believes to be some sage advice.
Griffin, on the other hand, said in a recent interview with GQ, “it’s probably best we don’t talk.”
McNabb responded during his time on NBC Sports Radio’s Under Center with McNabb and Malone:
I’m just trying to help him, but clearly the young generation think they have all the answers. And he’s going through a little turmoil right now of trying to get out on the field. And it’s unfortunate, but that’s where we’re at right now as far as these young quarterbacks who think they have all the answers.
Does McNabb’s quote sound a bit like your grandparents talking about those dang kids and their newfangled gadgets? That’s at least what it sounds like to us.
But wait, the grumpiness continues. In fact, it escalates.
“I honestly think that over there in Washington he’s getting brainwashed.”
Brainwashed, you say?
Or is McNabb just upset that RGIII is listening to the advice of others instead of him?
