Donovan McNabb Benched: McNabb Reacts To His Agent's Negative Comments About The Shanahan's On His Radio Show

In his final radio show of the year, Donovan McNabb spent most of it reacting to his agent Fletcher Smith's statements from last week about Mike and Kyle Shanahan. 

Here are his comments, via twitter from various Skins beat reporters:

Chris Russell:

Donovan "I support my agent." "We're on the same page"

Rick Maese:

He also says that any conversations he's had with coaches "stays behind closed doors"

McNabb: "Things would obviously have to change. Relationship would have to be better. Conversations would have to be better"

McNabb says he didnt read release from his agent until after it was released last week. Says repeatedly he supports his agents' thoughts

McNabb: "I guess as you read in the article, he put his thoughts into the whole deal, not Donovan’s thoughts."

McNabb says he hasnt talked with either Bruce Allen or Dan Snyder since the benching.

McNabb says he's not upset about the contract extension he signed in November. "Not at all"

Rich Campbell:

McNabb on Smith's statement: "When I read the whole thing, I didn't see nothing wrong with it."

McNabb on his recent convo with Kyle: "We got things out there on the table and we were able to move on."

Redskins blogger Matt Terl:

McNabb: "Would I like to be the quarterback here next year? Yes."

John Keim:

mcnabb on asking for release: "No, that's false."

So the main point that can be taken from this interview is that Donovan had no issue with that his agent said last week, and has no clue whether or not he will be back next season. Other than that, it's another round of "he said, he said" drama that no one wants to hear about anymore. And unfortunately for the Redskins and McNabb, this situation has become nothing more than high school level drama. One thing is for sure in the McNabb camp, and it's that he wants this situation to be over with regardless of how it ends. 

And like many Redskins fans, he probably wants this saga to end quickly rather than it becoming another slow, painful drama in Ashburn.
