Mike R. is still a Flyers with all the rumors about a 23 y/o that has a social life and has sex with hot babes. Let's run him out of town.

McNabb wasn't worth resigning for 3+ yrs when his game has been declining for past 3-4 years.

When you don't win the big game after as many chances as McNabb has, its time for you to leave.

Worse than what? Richards is 25 & McNever is 33. There's no comparison on any level.

It's not really fair to compare Richards and Mcnabb. Two different sports.

If you are gonna compare McNabb to a Flyer it would be Lindros.

Both. People didnt want both of them at first, they both were supposed to bring a championship, they both suffered with injuries, they both never lived up to what they should have.

I understand trading Lindros.

They shouldn't have traded McNabb.

I was shocked when the Eagles traded McNabb, let alone to a divisional opponent.
I really thought McNabb was going to retire an Eagle. I peronally thought he got the short end of the stick with the fans and media. Now I am not a Eagles fan, but I think the guy did everything that was asked of him and did all he could. Who did the Eagles have for a #1 reciever after Owens left?
Anyway the comparison makes no sense. I am not even sure if McNabb can fight.

Knuble vs. McNabb

McNabb was Knubled?

Clearly, the Flyers should have traded Mike Richards for Donovan Mcnabb.

This may have just topped my list for most illogical post I've ever seen.

The Eagles have a young core, and McNabb is on the verge of turning 34, so instead of having to replace a Franchise Qb when the core is built and mature enough to contend for Super Bowls they're making the move now so Kolb can be included in that young core, its pretty simple.

Richards is one of the big pieces in the Flyers puzzle, so I'm not sure where the **** your ideas are coming from.

By the way, if Professional sports franchises made personnel decisions based on off the field performance they'd be in the social service industry.

When Mike Richards takes his team to the finals to even have the chance to throw up, let me know.

No comment on topic from me as you can't compare the 2 situations.

2 totally (seamingly) different personalties (haven't met either one ) in 2 different sports. 2 team sports, not one player wins or loses the games for the team.

So you pretty much just pointed out every flaw McNabb has, and admitted that he's never lived up to what he should have been, but we should have kept a declining QB who was never going to win us anything? He had one year left here, and we were not going to win. Why hold on to him?

I never thought he was going to retire an Eagle. I always figured he'd get traded, I just expected it to be Chicago because he's always said he wanted to play in his hometown. And sure, he may have gotten the short stick, but when you have the chances he had to bring home the trophy for us, he choked. Every time. And as far as receivers go, last time I checked none of them were midgets, and with the passes he was dishing out, that's what you needed to catch the ball.

This comparison is a joke. McNabb is an injury prone has-been, that is a shell of his former self. He still has it in him to win games, but he's never going to win the big one. I wish him the best of luck, and appreciate what he did, but for ****s sake, it was time to move on. Richards, on the other hand, is 25 ****ing years old, and the media is pissed because he likes to be young and party. Until I see him fill up one of those water bottles on the bench with alcohol, I don't give a **** what he does on his days off. I probably get more ******** then he does on the weekends; I just don't have the entire Philadelphia media armada following me. How about we wait until the rest of the team follows suit, and gives a **** every game like he does before we run him out of town for not giving quotes. Give it a couple years, and if the media keeps up with their ****, you just may get your wish.

On dry land McNabb would destroy Richards no question. On skates though, it would be a highly entertaining fight.

Very few people still really like McNabb. He was always the villain here for his choke jobs.

Mike Richards in the Stanley Cup Finals...

Games: 6
Goals: 1
Assists: 1
Points: 2

Ice Time Avg: Just under 22 minutes per game

Richards may not have vomited in the Finals but his play made me want to vomit.

Totally shutting down Toews wasn't important at all, and maybe if Richards wasn't playing Leighton could have given up 7 goals a game instead of 5
