    Super shuffle? McNabb, Briggs swap makes sense

    Yahoo Rumor Link

    What are your thoughts about this? Who would be getting the better deal? Will it even happen?

    Was the recent drafting of quarterback Kevin Kolb a sign that the Philadelphia Eagles might trade Donovan McNabb before the 2007 season?

    That's one theory, anyway. As for a possible destination, the Chicago Bears are ready to win the Super Bowl. They might have won it last year except for a glaring weakness at quarterback.

    The key to this scenario is Bears linebacker Lance Briggs, who has said publicly that he will never play for Chicago again and who refused to report to minicamp on Friday.

    Briggs is, arguably, the best weakside linebacker in the game and is only 26. He could help Philly rebuild its defense while Kolb gets ready to take control of the offense.

    McNabb is far from done, the Eagles would be stupid to trade for Briggs. Briggs is a helluva LB but making that trade would have the Eagles starting all over again. The Eagles have a young LB corp, I think they will start to come together this year. Grossman is a good QB, he just needs to keep his head out of his ***.

    Go for it, neither one will be back in the super bowl any time soon, so what does it matter.

    I can see this happening. Pending the cap implications. McNabb has been quietly ruffling some feathers lately.

    McNabb's main issue is he can never stay healthy. He took the high road during the TO controversy, he's generally said the right things. He's had his moments yes, but overall they have nobody on his level so they'd be stupid to trade him at this point IMO.
