2/17 — Eagles’ President Talks Redskins on the Air

Philadelphia Eagles President Joe Banner did an interview with Philadelphia sports-talk station WIP earlier this week, and there were at least two Redskins references.  “Well, I know Donovan, and I like and care for Donovan,” Banner said. “So I felt there were some moments there that, frankly, I felt really uncomfortable with. I mean, I don’t really want to be in the position of bashing the Redskins. And there’s obviously a lot you don’t know when you’re not on the inside. But he’s been in this league a long time, he’s a really good guy, he’s given himself — here and in Washington — to the community. And there were just moments there that you just kind of cringed a little bit. You felt for him in how the whole thing was handled,”   On Mike Shanahan, Banner said, “Oh, Mike Shanahan, he won two Super Bowls. Well, now he’s down in Washington, and if you could trade Andy Reid for Mike Shanahan, I don’t know anybody that wouldn’t keep Andy Reid. So I’m not caught up in that hysteria, according to the DC Sports Bog.
