Did McNabb refuse to wear a wristband with plays?

Looks like now that the NFL draft has been completed, the local media and Redskins fans alike can back to trashing everyone’s favorite lightning rod quarterback in Donovan McNabb. Because, after all, what would life be like if we had 24 hours without his name popping up in the news?

From Pro Football Talk:

As the marriage between the Redskins and quarterback Donovan McNabb moves toward an inevitable divorce (annulment may be the better word), our friends at the Sports Junkies on 106.7 the Fan in D.C. have added a little grease to the fire.

According to the Sports Junkies, citing multiple unnamed sources, coach Mike Shanahan asked McNabb to wear a wristband after he struggled to remember plays. McNabb declined, explaining that it would make him look stupid.

Per the report, owner Daniel Snyder became furious with Shanahan when he learned after the season that McNabb wouldn’t wear a wristband.

So wherever McNabb plays in 2011, it’ll be interesting to see whether he’ll wear a wristband.
