Donovan's New Deal


Donovan is currently "cheesing" in more ways than one.  He just signed a 5 year $88 million deal with the Redskins.  Yes, the very same ones that benched him last week for being too fat (lack of cardiovascular endurace) and dumb (doesn't understand the 2 minute offense).  Wow!  What a difference a couple weeks off makes huh?  Now he is their shiny new QB again, who will surely lead their team to glory for the next 5 years or at least for tonight.  It's Monday Night and Donovan's preparing to face his former team of 11 years, the Philadelphia Eagles.

Crazy.  If anyone knows his agent Fletcher Smith's phone number, please send it my way - I am looking for representation too.  I've always been a fan of Donovan and think his body of work over the last decade plus should earn him a spot in the Hall of Fame.  But after the first 8 games of this season, it is hard to imagine that Dan Snyder was happy with this trade with the Eagles.  This is by far the worst year of Donovan's career (not only because he is with the Redskins).  Maybe they just see his ability in practice and realize that there are many many holes to be filled before they can see all of his potential.  

Either way, congrats Donovan.  You definitely earned it with the 3rd most wins for any QB over the last 12 years.
