McNabb weighs in on QB switch in Philadelphia

The irony of the situation was not lost on Donovan McNabb.

The Philadelphia Eagles traded him away during the offseason in order to clear the deck for young quarterback Kevin Kolb and now, two games into the Kolb era, he’s been replaced.

“That's Philadelphia,” he said, according to the Philadelphia Daily News. “Things like that happen. I've been a part of that for 11 years and, obviously, as you see, it just doesn't stop.”

Per the report, McNabb said on his weekly radio appearance that Kolb should not lose his starting job because of a concussion suffered in the opener against the Green Bay Packers. But coach Andy Reid announced on Tuesday that he was switching to Michael Vick, who led the offense to 52 points in six quarters after replacing Kolb.

“Really, everything that's going on over there is none of my concern," McNab said Wednesday. "Anything I may say at this point really doesn't matter.

"They made a decision (to start Vick) and that's what they're going with, so we just have to focus on what we need to do here," McNabb said.

The beauty of it all? The Redskins and Eagles square off against one another in Week 4. Surely, McNabb will have more to say then.
