But JC is scared to take off and run and he takes to long to pull the trigger. I'll take McNabb

Yeah the comparison to Jason Taylor doesn't make much sense. Two completely different situations.

Right. Been there, done that... but, won't do much else. Any fan of a NFC East team knows McNabb choked when he had the chance to win the SB. PHI fans have even seen enough of what McNabb can do. Why love this move? Why even bring up Zorn? Isn't Campbell better with Shanahan?

DM's QB rating was also much higher.
I'm not sure I'd call 5 more TD's a huge difference. Making up numbers is speculation. McNabb plays a good team he might not have gotten the numbers, he plays a bad team he throws up more. But I'll give you the fact that your giving McNabb close to 200 yrds for each game.

Chalk me up to a Skeptic of this move. Hope it works out but would rather have had a Drafted Qb for our future.

I'm argueing that McNabb's not in his prime either. After two injury plagued yrs he's not the same QB.

Shanahan obviously didn't think so.

How is it completely different? Both were old players. Both we gave up draft picks for. One didn't live up to his resume and went back to a team we gave draft picks for. I just hope it doesn't happen again.

Fair enough and I agree, I would be doing back flips right now if say we were a playoff team last year or a bubble team at least but since we were so bad I don't see how McNabb gets us over the top (over the top to me is playoffs with a decent run in them, not necessarily SB champs).

Here is my one glimmer of hope. that Mike S. and company came in saw this team and realize they can do great stuff if you tweak a few key positions. From what it has sound like from last year it was just a complete mountie. So maybe the skins will have an about face this year. NFL is the best league to go worst to first in.

You keep harping on the injuries but those 2 injury filled seasons were in 2005 and 2006.

In the 3 seasons since then he's throw for 10,793 yards, 64 TDs, and 28 INTs.

He just posted a 92.9 QB rating last year, the 3rd best single season rating in his career.

Are we talking about the same guy?

And no other team is trying to make a move for JC. There were alot of times last year when JC just stunk it up.

DM isnt in his prime anymore and anyone that watches football knows that. Shanny knows JC doesnt have it and doesnt want to waste time trying so they have decided to move on. It will be interesting to see how many games DM plays without getting hurt but it wont be 16.

Taylor was playing out of position and in a scheme that didn't use him properly.

Re: McNabb a REDSKIN!

If people are comparing JC to McNabb and saying JC is the better option at QB for the Skins, that is absolutly the stupidest thing I have ever read here period. There is no comparison what so ever, that is insane, I dont care what the stats say or what the Philly's scheme says....this was a major upgrade at QB

Thats not why I'm comparing JC. I'm not a fan of JC either. What I am comparing is the stats for those stat oriented people. JC's were not that much different then McNabb's and McNabb had a much better situation to work in. We should have just picked up Delhonme, I don't think we would have had to give up the 2nd round pick for a HOF, franchise type QB who knows how to get to the SB.

This is a major upgrade at QB (anything would be a major upgrade from JC) but I dont see DM lasting more that 2 yrs.
