Since nobody none of the Redskins will probably be allowed to say anything about the Donovan McNabb Benching, let's take a look at what they've had to say about him in the past. First, their first impressions, then after the jump, how they rallied around him after he was benched for the first time in Detroit.
"You're talking about a guy who has been to the big game [Super Bowl XXXIX] and played in a lot of NFC championship games. He's done it for a long period of time, so he can't do anything but make your team better.
"Donovan's outstanding, it feels like he's been here for a couple years," Cooley said of McNabb, acquired from the NFC East rival Philadelphia Eagles for two draft picks on April 4. "Instantly, he's a leader. He knows what it takes to have a team together. He's talking to all the guys, fits in extremely well. I don't think anyone was worried about his ability to come be the quarterback of this team."
