The Washington Redskins and quarterback Donovan McNabb have agreed to five-year contract extension, reports NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora, citing a league source.

The deal, which locks in McNabb until 2015, includes $40 million guaranteed and could be worth up to a maximum of $88 million, including $10 million in incentives. The deal averages $15.5 million per season, according to the source.

Dan Schneider is an idiot. How did this guy get to be a billionaire? Prediction - Washington doesn't win a single playoff game with McNabb at QB. Limbaugh was and continues to be right about this guy.

Is this an Onion story?

The coach benchs the QB, so the owner gives the QB $88 million?

What next, they’ll sign Brett Favre as a backup?

As long as fans continue buying $75.00 nose-bleed seats and $ 8.00 beers, while fans and non-fans pay for state-of-the-art single-purpose stadiums, salaries will continue to rise, even for half-ass quarterbacks.

Not bad for a guy whose coach thinks he’s too old and tired to run a 2-minute drill.

Incredibly stupid... is there a fantasy football team owner in the country.. outside of DC.. who would guarantee ANYTHING for McNabb?

The NFL has GOT to get away from the guaranteed money... it will kill them.

McNabb is still a decent qb, but on most teams he would be a backup.

A man who was best known for his scrambling ability is getting the big paycheck when his legs will be 39 years old at the end of the contract?

Dan Schneider is an idiot.

First he signs the fat, out-of-shape whiner Albert Haynesworth to a $100 mil. contract, and now an over-the-hill QB who coach Shanahan described as "not in shape to run our 2-min. offense" gets an $88 mil. deal.

Snyder rules.

Interesting contract. Almost 18 million per year.

How old will McNabb be in 2015?

Limbaugh didn't say he was no good; he simply implied that he wasn't as good as the media wanted him to be.

"Excellent news for us Giants fans."

After Sunday's game against Dallas, the Giants need more than this to make their run for the division. Worst game against a team not making the playoff in a long time.

Sounds like a moron Snyder move once aqain.

McNabbs agent probably whined about a commitment and Snyder overreacted.

I predict that Shanahan will be leaving next year, two years tops. LOL, snyder is worse than Angelos.

I think that's true. Although, I don't think he runs an office as nearly as well as a guy like Kitna, or even Collins. $14M/Year with $40M being guaranteed is just stupid, insulting to the fans, really.

"Would Jerry Jones do that? "

Jerry Jones can fire the coach in mid-season and still get the Cowboys to beat the Giants in NJ.

The Giants are in 1st place in the NL East — a “run for the division” is already assured. As for the game, Dallas won on big plays and big turnovers by the G-Men. It happens.

"Dallas won on big plays and big turnovers by the G-Men"

You've got to admit that the Dallas defense played great, especially considering how banged-up they are in the secondary and how great NY's offense has looked this season, and especially last week.

It's curious that the defense plays better when the new HC is an offensive guy. Maybe there were too many cooks in the kitchen before.

Aren’t the Redskins the team that has been sueing season ticketowners that lost their jobs and attempted to cancel their season tickets?

1st downs: Giants 24, Dallas 14

Time of possession: Giants 38 min., Dallas 22 min.

Total yards: Giants 480, Dallas 427.

And this is with the Giants missing two offensive linemen due to injury this week.

So no, I wouldn’t say the Dallas defense played “great.” This game was about turnovers at the worst possible time some very big plays. ...especially by Dez Bryant (an amazing talent).

Let me rephrase - Dallas "played great" relative to how they were playing in the first 8 games of the season, against the run in particular. Back in October, the Giants dropped 41 on them. They cut that in half, despite the pretty good play of Eli.

One thing is certain — Dallas played with a lot more emotion this week. ...most likely the result of the coaching change.

I attribute it more to The Hawthorne Effect, which tends to be short-lived.

Did you hear about Dez Bryant's expensive loss yesterday?

Could make him think twice about wearing diamond earrings during games. ...but I doubt it.

If they leave him in that long. He’s already down 21-0, and has thrown at least one interception that I remember.

I wish we had hired Vick instead of buying McNabb. Vick may be a problem case, but at least he has potential.

I’d bet anything he still gets traded to Minnesota next year. He’s pulling the Favre plan: play one year with a schlub team then go where you really wanted to play.
