Freddie Mitchell Takes Mike Shanahan's Side In Donovan McNabb Benching

Do you care what Freddie Mitchell thinks about Mike Shanahan's decision to bench Donovan McNabb last Sunday? Do you are about anything Freddie Mitchell thinks? Do you even know who Freddie Mitchell is?

For many of you, the answer to those three questions is no. Regardless, because Freddie Mitchell is crazy, we're going to pass along what he thinks of Donovan McNabb's benching. You may remember Mitchell as the hothead, underachieving former Eagles wide receiver that hated McNabb's guts and believes that's prevented him from having an NFL job since 2004. If not, you'll be reminded of that guy once you read his comments on McNabb, via Philly Sports Daily.

I don't know many coaches that have the balls to do that. He was playing like [expletive] and he should have been benched. ... And don't say he doesn't have a record of this; he did the same thing in every single championship game."

Here's your answer, Freddie: Koy Detmer would have been your Super Bowl quarterback. Then again, I guess he's better than Rex Grossman.
