Photo Credit: Twitter.com Former NFL quarterback Donovan McNabb is back to his accusatory ways. Following the announcement of Detroit Lion Mathew Stafford’s blockbuster contract extension, McNabb took to NFL Network’s “NFL Total Access” to question Stafford’s deservedness. “What has he really done for the Detroit Lions?” McNabb said on Tuesday’s Total Access. “Nothing.” Except take the Lions from 0-16 to 10-6 and a playoff berth in three years. But franchises don’t pay attention to that kind of stuff, right? “It’s about wins and losses again. Now, as a quarterback and as Matt Stafford, hey, I would take that contract just like Tony Romo took his contract. But is he worth top 5 money? I would have to say no. And I say that because it’s about wins and losses.” This is the second time that the former Pro-Bowl QB has attacked a quarterback’s big contract since the off-season began in March. Just as the signing period began, old division rival Tony Romo accepted a contract worth $108 million. The new six year deal made Romo one of the highest paid players in the NFL, putting him in a category including Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, and Peyton and Eli Manning. McNabb’s point being that Romo’s lone playoff win came nearly five years ago in 2009. Meanwhile, three of the four quarterbacks meeting his pay grade have won a Super Bowl in those four years. “When you have one playoff win, quarterbacks are measured by wins and losses,” McNabb told Total Access viewers at the time of the deal. “When you look at what the Cowboys have been able to do in the last couple of years, that’s not win the big game.” Of course McNabb and the Eagles never won “the big game” either. And it is worth noting that McNabb was on the losing end of Romo’s lone win, but that is beside the point. Romo is also one of the best regular season quarterbacks of all-time. Romo has thrown 177 TD to just 91 INT, and has maintained a career 95.6 QBR So while McNabb can always make a case for his comments, they always come off more envious than anything else. After being replaced in Philadelphia by Kevin Kolb and Michael Vick, McNabb did not exactly end his career on a high note. He could probably be criticized himself for being given an NFL Network contract, especially when his main game is telling people they do not deserve their paycheck. McNabb is just jealous that big paydays were not being doled out so readily when he was actually performing… in 2004. Is McNabb in a place to criticize current players’ contracts?
