Rams fans shouldn’t believe what they hear on the McNabb rumors

As the carousel of the Rams getting linked to every quarterback in the NFL that was ever rumored to be traded or cut or reasonably available continues to turn, today the carousel stops on Donovan F. McNabb.  According to St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s Brian Burwell, the Rams brass have had “intense internal conversations about acquiring Donovan McNabb.”  Now don’t get me wrong, this is a good scoop from Burwell, but I would imagine that the Rams and their brass have gone over every possible scenario about how to get a few new quarterbacks under center for the Rams in 2010.  They have probably discussed everything short of caulking and floating the Edward Jones Dome down to New Orleans to barter for Drew Brees.

This is the reason the offseason is so crazy.  Someone in the know leaks word of “intense internal discussion” which could have led to the Rams deciding not to go after McNabb.  The columnist prints (or tweets) this news.  Pageviews skyrocket!  Profit!

Anyway, McNabb makes no sense for the rebuilding Rams who have no need for a historically inaccurate, aging quarterback who will be on the downhill side of his career when the Rams need him to be up the upswing.

    I would love to see you in the Rams uniform in 2010 “running the NFC West”. I just don’t see how it helps anyone in the long term.

    And I will still be blogging about it…
