Donovan McNabb Benched: Adam Schefter Says McNabb's Time In Washington Is 'Over'

I think anybody who is looking at this Redskins situation from the outside looking in would be able to reach the same conclusion, but it means a little bit more when it comes from an inside source like Adam Schefter. During an appearance on Sportscenter this morning, Schefter had this to say, via the Dallas Morning News.

"I think this move seals the deal," Schefter said Friday on ESPN's SportsCenter television show. "Clearly, Mike Shanahan wouldn't be making the move if he had confidence in Donovan McNabb. The Washington Redskins' marriage with Donovan McNabb is over. It's over."

Again, this isn't a ground breaking take. But there was always the chance that Schefter was going to go on the air and say that he had inside knowledge that the Redskins are committed to McNabb despite what this benching may say. It's pretty easy to see that the Redskins don't have faith in McNabb, and that he probably isn't happy with the way he has been treated by the Organization. If this truly is the end of the Shanahan/McNabb marriage, this is going to be a messy divorce.
