07:10 AM ET 08.23 | Answers. The quarterback wanted answers. The ones Donovan McNabb got were unsatisfying and unsatisfactory. Just why did the Eagles shed one of their veteran leaders, Jeremiah Trotter, on Tuesday morning, mere weeks before the season begins? Why was the four-time Pro Bowler, and one of the only linebackers on the roster with meaningful starting experience, cut when the Eagles supposedly are trying to make a Super Bowl run? Why couldn't some sort of arrangement - a pay cut, a backup role, something - have been negotiated? "I'm shocked," McNabb said. "I'm truly shocked."
