Donovan McNabb Benched: Donovan McNabb "Strongly Disagrees" With Mike Shanahan's Decision

Well, now that everyone else in the locker room and coaching staff has had their take on the Donovan McNabb benching, it was only a matter of time before the man in question finally came out with a statement of his own.

According to Rick Maese of the Washington Post, McNabb released a statement about today's news:

Well, there you have it. It's an unpopular decision (surprise) all across the board.

The deed is done, everyone's upset, and the Redskins now have a glaring hole at the game's most important position.

Happy times in Redskins land, for sure.
