Why did the Washington Redskins give D.McNabb a big(5yr. 70+ million contract)...

...last season? ..During the midst of a mediocre Season? And, at the end, knew they would let him go?

The Red skins front office hasn't made a good decision in 12years...they are utterly football prospective talent illiterate

Brett Favre ?..g. is on a distinguished road
I'm not sure, maybe they hoped he would be good enough for a few years.

Because their owner is arguably the worst in sports. And now they have a coach to match him.

The $70M contract was awarded by upper management after Shanahan benched McNabb for no good reason and then gave a bunch of excuses for the benching that left a lot of people thinking ... "WTF?" They wanted to keep McNabb happy but it apparently p'd off Shanahan in the process because the McNabb/Shanahan situation got considerably worse right after the contract. If Shanahan wasn't such a douche, McNabb probably would have stayed (and even performed to his abilities).

i believe it was after the Redskins record improved by a win over the Cowboys and went to 5-3. A playoff contender at that point of the season. Everything went downhill from there.

No good reason. At all.
