I thought Donovan McNabb was only kidding when he told the press after the embarrassing tie with the Bengals that he didn’t know games could end in a tie in overtime. Apparently, he was serious.
And now Eagles fans are turning on him in a real bad way. Here is one article that makes a good cause for cutting McNabb at the end of the season.
With a 2009 base salary of $9.2 million and a remaining bonus proration of $1.16 million, dumping McNabb would create more than $8 million in 2009 cap space.
Carrying the $1.16 million in dead money would be no big deal for the Eagles, especially since they pushed more than $10 million of 2008 cap surplus into 2009 via a phony eight-figure LTBE incentive given to fullback/defensive tackle/fullback/defensive tackle/fullback Dan Klecko.
