Former Philadelphia Eagles offensive lineman Shawn Andrews told Mike Missanelli of 97.5 The Fanatic that he was “disgusted” with the way Donovan McNabb treated him when they played together.
“People think that it’s just a band of brothers,” Andrews said. “These are my co-workers, and I understood that really early on. That you can’t trust everybody.”
Andrews believed that McNabb would often talk behind his back.
“If you put your heart, everything that comes with you, on the line for another person and they’re saying some very, very, very untrue things about you to other guys in our same league on other teams, how would that make you feel?” Andrews said. “You’re putting your heart on the line, man. You could break your neck, there’s so many things that you could do.”
When Andrews confronted McNabb, he of course denied it.
“I’m disgusted by it,” Andrews said. “You know, like [Jonathan] Martin? I feel the connection there because when he said he tried to befriend the people who talked about him, I know what he’s going through.”
Andrews wasn’t very happy with how he was treated as a member of the Eagles in general.
“When the camera is rolling oh it’s, ‘We’re a team, we’re a team’ but when the cameras go off it’s like, ‘Screw you, dude. Screw you,’” Andrews said. “I’ve had to work with guys that didn’t have everybody’s best interests at heart. The only guy I’ll tell you that I could trust on that team was flat out Brian Dawkins.”
