Who Asked Him? McNabb Slams RG3 in Interview

Donovan McNabb has had a busy spring.

Since retiring quietly from the NFL -- which is a polite way to say hardly anyone noticed -- McNabb has fancied himself a commentator.

First of all, when news of Tony Romo's new contract with the Dallas Cowboys came out, McNabb said on Twitter.

 “Tony Romo 6 yr 55 million dollar extension. Wow, really, with one playoff win. You got to be kidding me."

Now, McNabb has taken his poor grammar to print in order to diss Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III. He claims that Griffin, in his opinion, is "doing too much" ... whatever the hell that means.

Personally, I think McNabb is just being a hater, but you can judge for yourself:

“It’s too much right now; it’s just too much,” McNabb said in a  Washington Post interview. “I get some of the things he’s doing to draw attention to himself: the Adidas commercials; going out and enjoying the life of a young, famous NFL quarterback. I understand RG has a lot of stuff going on.

“But if you’re coming off [anterior cruciate ligament] surgery, you don’t need to be having a press conference at [organized team activities]. Every week? Really? It becomes a circus, a sideshow. It takes away from the focus of what those sessions are supposed to be about: the team.”

McNabb continued his assault of the young QB:

"So when I look up on TV and see him up there talking all the time about how great he’s doing — or doing jumping jacks or someone else talking about his supernatural healing powers — I wonder to myself: Is this about selling tickets to the fans or what?

“I don’t blame him. They’re letting him do it. But at some point, it can be counterproductive. You can set yourself up for more criticism later.”

Does that sound like man who is actually giving constructive criticism or a guy who is jealous of a young quarterback who is making more money then he did during his pro career and beloved by the city he plays for unlike McNabb?

You make the call.
