If you were a Washington Redskins fan, with questions about the future at quarterback, you might be asking whether the team made the right move in pursuing Donovan McNabb.

Plenty of controversy seemed to follow him from the benching to the contract extension that was not all that it seemed to any number of stories that emerged after the season.

Oh, and the team went 6-10.

Asked whether the Redskins would still make the McNabb trade if they had to do it all over again, general manager Bruce Allen was undeterred. "We would make the move again to get Donovan," Allen said during an interview with CSN Washington (per  at Langley High School's graduation ceremony, where he delivered the keynote speech. "The 6-10 (record) isn't what we had dreamed for our season, and I can't pinpoint one person to blame for that. We have to improve special teams, defense and offense."

"Donovan's performance last year was part of the team's performance. I usually don't try to single out one player for wins or losses. He was a good captain for us."

Allen also minimized reports of tension between McNabb and offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan.

"I think they (McNabb and offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan) gelled very well at times. It was the first year for everybody with the Washington Redskins and it takes time to in order for people to learn the other person's desires."
