Starting A Rumor

McNabb to Pittsburgh.

Yeah, I know. I just can't get off this McNabb thing. But how often can a top ten quarterback at the top of his game who has never been any kind of a nuisance be had for a 2nd round pick?

But think about it. It's perfect. McNabb has one year left on his deal, so there are no worries about a controversy down the road Roethlisberger is in a jam, and no one really knows how it will turn out. Pittsburgh is a ready-to-win team and frankly it is hard to imagine a better fit for that lineup and offense than McNabb. One added benefit? Philadelphia doesn't face Pittsburgh this year.

So here's how it would go. Pittsburgh ships #52 to Philly for McNabb. I know, the Eagles have sworn they won't take less than #42 so if they get sticky the two teams swap spots in the 4th round to even up the deal. McNabb participates on all the OTAs while Roethlisberger squares his ducks.

If Big Ben can get clear of everything then Pittsburgh can ship McNabb to another target for a 3rd rounder or something. Cheap insurance for a Super Bowl team. If things get sticky for Roethlisberger then the team runs with McNabb for a season and then weighs things again next February after winning the Super Bowl.

It's sheer genius. It has to happen.

Of course, it won't.
