The jokiest NFL franchise in the land got jokier today. First Fletcher Smith, Donovan McNabb’s agent went off on Father and Son Shanahan.
A portion of Smith’s statement:
“While Donovan’s feelings about Washington remain the same, the Shanahans — both Mike and more specifically Kyle — have made this an extremely difficult relationship to maintain. Their comments have been beyond disrespectful and unprecedented for a six-time Pro Bowl quarterback such as Donovan.”
Rather than let the agent’s words lie over the none-news-cycle that is the Christmas Holiday, Coach Tanahan kicked the fued into overdrive tonight by responding with a ridiculous statement, highlighted by the Freudian slip of the year.
While trying to say he had wished only good things for McNabb, Coach Tanahan’s statement instead read:
“No one wanted him to be more successful than me.”
And you and your boy made sure he wasn’t more successful than you, Coach T!
