No shock: Donovan McNabb threw no bombshells at his weekly press availability Thursday morning. His benching at the end of the Redskins’ game against Detroit continues to dominate the questioning, but McNabb is supplying no gasoline for the fire. Surprise.
“I like to handle my business behind closed doors,” he said, adding that he has never agreed with people who deal with their grievances through the media. He said, “I think that’s not truly professional.”
What McNabb said was that he has spoken with the Shanahans -- coach Mike and offensive coordinator Kyle. He said they have talked about trying to play more to McNabb’s strengths, but that he has received no assurances that, given a similar circumstance, he won’t be pulled again.
Still, McNabb said, “We’ve put it out on the table and we’re moving on,” and he insisted that he relationship with the Redskins’ organization has not been fundamentally altered by the incident.
