    OK-this is probably BS. But nonetheless, let's enjoy it while it lasts.

    i would say BS, he is no way worth the #1. i don't think he's worth any 1st round pick.

    It could be true...maybe Wayne H has a thing for older QB's who are injury prone (Culpepper, Trent Green, Donovan).

    Maybe they should have just stuck with Joey Harrington?

    Please Miami!!
    Why did the Eagles have to wait until now to bring this up?
    Do it before the dolphins get someone good for their staff!

    The Culpepper experiment failed miserably down there. No way they go down that path (i.e. vet, injury prone, former All pro, slowingrushing QB) again.

    #12 Jersey

    He is worth say a Minnasota 1 but not the overall number 1... Parcells is not that dumb...

    I as a personal friend of Mcnabb asked him about this rumor, he started hyperventilating and barfed, prompting Fred Ex to answer for him. And Freddy says that Mcnabb is excited but currently out of breath.

    Sounds like something someone on WIP would say. And, took a life of it's own. WIP is Philly's equivalent of WEEI.

    As others have noted, there's no way McNabb is worth a 1st rounder. If true, the Eagles are posturing. He's not worth more than a 3rd at this point and that might be high.

    As was pointed out in the comments on that link... this is impossible because we are way past the trade deadline, you can't make a trade until March!

    Funny followup story someone added to that site, in response:

    http://www.yardbarker.com/nfl/artic..._Miami_for_1_overall_pick_in_2008_draft/61207

    "Falcons QB Michael Vick Traded to Miami for #1 overall pick in 2008 draft

    In a shocking move, Bill Parcells and the Miami Dolphins will be announcing a trade that's so secret, they got permission to announce it before trades are allowed, and long after the NFL trade deadline. The Dolphins will be trading the #1 overall draft pick to the Atlanta Falcons for QB Michael Vick, 4 season tickets for the Atlanta Braves, a Cadillac Escalade, 2 VIP passes to the Gold Club, and 1, all-important, "Get Michael Vick Out of Prison, Free Card". "

    Pure insanity and wishful thinking out of Philly. Donovan McNabb is a nice player but not a championship QB. You don't give up the number 1 pick for a 30 yr old nice QB with a bad knee to run a team that has holes all over its' roster.
    The Tuna will give up the #1 for lots of draft choices.

    i can see them asking for a first rounder to start the negotiating, but not someone actually biting on that
