Every time the Eagles make a major personnel move these days it seems to stun QB Donovan McNabb. The drafting of Kevin Kolb? No. 5 never saw it coming. The release of MLB Jeremiah Trotter Tuesday? "Shocking," he called it. Is it really so easy to surprise the franchise QB? Do you really want a franchise QB jolted by such issues? What's really going in is McNabb seems to be caught in a no-man's land. He doesn't like the direction the team has taken at QB, and especially not at MLB, and that's OK. McNabb thinks the Eagles are a Super Bowl team with Trotter - maybe even one without him. So, what's the problem with saying exactly that instead of tip-toeing around it? Granted, it's easier for me to blog it. Just the same, McNabb knew when Kolb was drafted it's not necessarily what you say, but what you do and how long you stay healthy that determines the future. And that's hardly shocking, is it?

I think you're reading a tad too much into his comments. 90% of Eagles fans have used almost the same exact words to describe their reactions to both the drafting of Kolb and the release of Trotter. All it means is that Donovan isn't clued in to what Andy Reid and Tom Heckert are thinking, and don't know when they are about to do something unexpected.
