McNabb makes Washington a contender


Bringing in Donovan McNabb will make Washington a much stronger team. Add that to the recent coaching change, and Ohm Youngmisuk writes that it makes the Redskins to a possible division winner.

By trading a second-round pick (37th overall in this month's draft) and either a third- or fourth-round pick next year to the Philadelphia Eagles, the Redskins sent tremors through the NFC East that reverberated throughout the NFL, with players around the league chiming in on the trade on Twitter.

Nowhere will the buzz be greater than around the Beltway, where Redskins football finally feels like it is back with the newly formed burgundy-and-gold union between McNabb and Shanahan. The Redskins haven't made this big of a splash since luring Joe Gibbs out of retirement in 2004.
