On Friday, Comcast SportsNet posted an item on how Mike Shanahan said he "loves" Donovan McNabb at a youth football camp. It was a brief line in a speech Shanahan gave in response to a kid's question, during which he said that you have to make "tough decisions" as a football coach when it comes to your roster.â†µ
Not content with that, Pro Football Talk decided to nevertheless post this item on the speech, saying it showed that Shanahan is "planning to give his 34-year old QB the axe." Keep in mind that this is based on a speech Shanahan gave to a bunch of kids. The kid who asked the question is seven years old.â†µ
Now, CSN Washington has put up video of the whole exchange, and ... yeah, Shanahan is talking to a bunch of kids after all. I think it's time we closed the book on this non-story.
