Redskins with Donovan McNabb an NFL Betting success?

For years QB Donovan has been one of the best in the business and been a thorn in the side of NFC East NFL wagering opponents. And in the upcoming NFL betting season that’s not going to change, he’ll just be beating defenses while wearing a maroon jersey instead of green one.

In one of the truly unprecedented moves in football betting history, the Philadelphia Eagles traded away a Pro-Bowl QB (and the best in franchise history). And they didn’t ship him off to the distant West Coast or to the AFC betting competition.


They shipped him a few hundred miles south to their hated NFC East betting rivals, the Washington Redskins. Head Coach Andy Reid deserves the benefit of the doubt considering all his NFL betting success but the move, at least on paper, seems preposterous. Although you could argue that moving McNabb is the best move the long term football betting success of the Eagles and that by dealing him to Washington it prevented the Skins from drafting a skilled QB of the future in a draft thought to be deep in QB talent.

Regardless, Washington just got a helluva lot better and should improve immediately in the eyes of NFL odds makers. After years of football betting futility with Jason Campbell as the starting QB in our nation’s capital the Skins NFL betting fans finally have something to cheer about.

Washington has a relatively good O-line and McNabb should be in good hands. And until last season the Skins had a very good running game, one of the best in the NFL betting action with several backs capable of breaking the 1,000 yard barrier. The addition of former Steelers RB Willie Parker should only improve the running game.

The biggest question mark for the Skins entering this NFL betting season will be at the WR position. Santana Moss is the only name recognizable to most NFL betting fans and has proven himself a threat during his decade in the league. But he’ll see double coverage all game long unless the Skins can groom a productive second and third receiving option out of its stable of no-name pass catchers.

And that will be the big question mark hanging over this team as the 2010 NFL betting season approaches.
