Donovan McNabb — Minnesota Vikings
A devastating playoff loss to the Dallas Cowboys in 2009 pushed coach Andy Reid to make a change at QB. He opted to name Kevin Kolb as the starter over Donovan McNabb moving forward. McNabb was traded to Washington, and actually ended up beating the Eagles in the team’s first matchup that season.
McNabb’s time with the Eagles division rival was quickly ended when the Redskins traded him to the Minnesota Vikings for a sixth-round pick (which later became RB Alfred Morris). Purple clearly wasn’t McNabb’s color, as he played just six games for the Vikes before being unseated at the starting spot for rookie Christian Ponder.
