Last Friday we shared a heartwarming video of Washington Redskins tight end Chris Cooley(notes) helping a fan propose to his girlfriend. This video is like that in no way.

After practice one day this week, Chris Cooley recruited a young fan to hide in Donovan McNabb’s(notes) locker and pop out when the new Redskins quarterback returned. Though predictable, the result is still pretty hilarious.

(Note: Disregard any message saying the selected item is not available. The video will play immediately after.) 

Excellent execution by young Jacob. McNabb’s reaction was great also; I’d have screamed like a little girl. Everyone in the locker room handled the joke very calmly too.

Donovan McNabb Traded to Redskins for the Promise of Kevin Kolb

Donovan McNabb has been traded to the Washington Redskins according to Trey Wingo of ESPN. McNabb was 92-49-1 in his career with the Philadelphia Eagles, the 4th-highest win percentage among active quarterbacks with at least 75 starts. McNabb was acquired for the Redskins 37th draft pick in this year’s draft and either a 3rd or 4th-round pick in 2011.

Of McNabb, Reid gave this eulogy for his one-time franchise quarterback:

Donovan McNabb represented everything a football player could be during his 11 seasons in Philadelphia…. He carried this organization to new heights and set a high standard of excellence both on and off the field.

When questions turned to Kevin Kolb who is projected to be the Eagles starter in the 2010-2011 season, Reid was circumspect. And when pressed as to why he would jettison McNabb for a players who started all of two games and played in an offense not at all representative of what Reid like to to when his team has the ball, Reid said:

No matter how you look at this [Kevin Kolb] is a young and upcoming player.

While Reid was watching Kolb during practices every week with the second team, he seemed to base the decision to go with Kolb on two starts in the 2009-2010 season.

What the McNabb trade means for Campbell

Many Insider readers expressed anger toward me in e-mails after I recently wrote the team clearly was not committed to quarterback Jason Campbell.

After Sunday night’s surprising trade for former Philadelphia Pro Bowl quarterback Donovan McNabb, the Redskins made their feelings about Campbell known publicly. As of late Sunday evening/early Monday morning, the Redskins had not officially informed Campbell, their starter the past three-plus seasons, that McNabb is now their franchise quarterback, a person with knowledge of the situation said.

In fact, Campbell only learned of the move from friends, who had heard about the trade while watching television and listening to radio, the person said. Of course, Coach Mike Shanahan and General Manager Bruce Allen are not obligated to tell Campbell anything. The team retained Campbell’s rights by offering him a first-round contract tender – which he has not yet signed – and this is how things work at times in the NFL.

On the other hand, Campbell has been a consummate professional since the Redskins selected him in the first round of the 2005 NFL draft. He has worked hard on and off the field while representing the organization well in the community, and usually was positive in his comments about the team despite the poor performance of the front office and coaching staffs that have marked his time in Washington.

“Jason is a great guy,” center Casey Rabach said in a phone interview late Sunday night. “He’s a guy who’s taken a lot of stuff through his three years of starting, but always handled it very well. He always handled it very professional.”

Shanahan and Allen were not here for the organization’s many missteps under owner Daniel Snyder the past five seasons, and even if they had been, they’re all about business in their approach to players, people who have worked with them in the past said. Shanahan determined Campbell could not help the Redskins as much as McNabb could, so McNabb is in and Campbell almost undoubtedly will be out soon.

The Redskins likely will trade Campbell, who received a first-round tender of $3.14 million. Usually in such situations, players sign the tender offers when trades are close to being completed.

With the way the roster has been mismanaged for most of Snyder’s 11-year tenure, Campbell never had a chance to be successful in Washington, a high-ranking former NFC player-personnel official once told me. All the changes in offensive philosophies, the lack of overall talent on the roster and apparent shaky high-ranking leadership would have been too much for the league’s best quarterbacks to overcome, the NFC official said, let alone a guy such as Campbell, who has talent but is not an elite signal caller.

After all, the Redskins have missed the playoffs eight times in Snyder’s 11 seasons. Campbell only has been with the team for five of those seasons and did not start until midway through his second season. The team’s failure to win consistently under Snyder is not all on Campbell’s shoulders. Not even close.

The fact is, however, that Campbell did not get it done during the time he was allotted to impress, and perhaps he would benefit from a change of scenery. One of Campbell’s former Redskins coaches told me he’s confident Campbell could be an effective starter for another team, and it seems that theory will soon be tested.

“You have to just hold your head up high and get through it,” wide receiver Devin Thomas said of Campbell. “Sometimes you have to find an exit door, but that opens another door for ya, and that’s just part of the game. Everybody knows that.

“It’s unfortunate with the last couple of years everything Jason has been through. He overcame a lot of stuff, no doubt, and you have to respect the way he’s handled it. He’ll have an opportunity somewhere else and make the best of it. I know he will.”

Jason Campbell was born on December 31st, 1981 according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jason_Campbell

December 31st

12 + 31 +2+0+0+9 = 54 = his personal year (from December 31st, 2009 to December 30th, 2010)

54 year + 3 (March) = 57 = his personal month (from March 31st, 2010 to April 30th, 2010)

57 month + 4 (4th of the month on Sunday April 4th, 2010) = 61 = his personal day = Strategy.  Planning.  Contingency plans.  Back up plans.  Plan B.  Change of plans.  Stealth.  Exit. 

57 month + 5 (5th of the month on Monday April 5th, 2010) = 62 = his personal day = Restrictions.  Limitations.  Obstructions.  Impediments. 

December 31st, 1981

12 + 31 +1+9+8+1 = 62 = his life lesson = what he is here to learn

When his number (62 (12 + 31 +1+9+8+1 = 62)) comes up, that’s when he gets to live/experience what he is here to live/experience.  So today is HIS day!!!
