McNabb is not a young guy, I just hope what your saying is correct
Yes, Stop Crying. That's all we do is whine all day. The o line is this and that. Let this unit go out there and work. You are comparing this years line to a line last year that lost 2 starters. This group may not be the Hogs but they have to play together first. We are turning our backs on them now why ? The other guy couldn't call out a blitz to save his life. If Donovan calls them and they don't adjust then hey we can blame the Oline. We didn't need a pro bowl line to compete, we needed someone to make our line compete. No more time to argue this point, if Trent can protect his blindside then we should be good. I just wish Donovan had Samuels before the neck injury, maybe he would've garnered a little more respect for how good he was.

You are right HOWEVER, the same line that couldn't protect him sure protected Todd Collins when he stepped in and we went up against some of the best defenses the NFC had to offer that year. I'm just saying. You have to take advantage of the protection that you are given and the other guy didn't IMO. Hopefully this new group can get something going.

Re: How many games this season will McNabb play?

I'll go with an odd number, just for the hell of it.

I'll predict 11 starts. Two of those missed games in October while the team is well over .500, and then the final three games.

My second post goes a little more in depth about my point but whatever no sense in crying about that, BUT I will continue point out our biggest concern going into this season, the Oline when i directly relates to a good topic brought up by Snake of how many games will our best Offensive player will play. SS33 brought up the point that McNabb is not really injury prone, so the answer lies on the Line. By no means am I bashing the line already, Im just saying we have question marks along it and Im the type of fan who believes game is won in the trenches...dominate D and O lines...Im not saying we need a probowl line to win, we need consistent play with same guys (not rotating door) who, as a unit, have no problem whether its running or throwing. I believe Shanny and Bruce have done the best job possible in getting players for the Line especially with CBA turmoil which kinda handcuff us by not being able to sign a quality vet tackle which may have become available. The answer to this question still lies with the play of the Oline, hopefully the scheme helps with the talent we currently have.

Good post.
Not only is the O-line the biggest area of concern but we also have question marks in the WR, RB, D-line, LB, and FS positions. It is an unknown at this point how well the personnel/scheme will perform on the field. I do believe that there will be some surprise success stories, player and team wise this season, but I also believe there will be some growing pains as well.
As we have all been questioning the O-line and how well will it will perform, as well as the lack of personnel change, we also have the same questions in quite a few positions.
EDIT: 16 games including playoffs

I think if the Oline gels together quickly McNabb will start 15 games this season. If the oline doesn't gel...then it's irrelevant how many games he starts because he'll be bruised, battered and less effective.

Are these QBs "injury prone"?

Jason Campbell missed 3 games in 2007
Romo missed 3 games in 2009
Matt Ryan missed 2 games in 2009
Matt Schaub missed 5 games in 2008 and 5 games in 2007

All that being said, McNabb will start at least 14 games for us in 2010.
Matt Schaub is one on that list I would label as injury prone. He has had issues the past few years.

Re: How many games this season will McNabb play?

I think the chances of McNabb getting through the entire season are much better than in the past. Shanahan isn't going to throw 70% of the time like Reid, so DM isn't going to be as exposed as he was in Philly.

Agree, all information coming from mini camps & OTA's is the Skins are committed to the run.

I dont know how confident that makes me, considering our running game was crap last season.

I know i know Portis is healthy again, blah blah, but he was the reason why the game was crap up until he got hurt.

Now if LJ starts, maybe things are different. All reports say that he looks like a beast in camp, compared to the other 2.

Re: How many games this season will McNabb play?

In order for a new OL to jell you have to run the ball otherwise the QB will get killed, alah JC last season Samuels & Thomas went down OL disappeared IMO.

this and that i heard a skins player (mike williams?) say that last year the coaches asked the Oline to really just go man on man, which i suppose would be fine if we had dominant O line guys but when you have injuries and less than stellar starting players to begin with, i dont think the best scheme was to expect a mike williams or levi jones or stephen heyer to win one on one matches up against the wares, tucks, coles of the world.

the player also said so far this year it looks like they will be employing more scheme oriented o line plays so that the success of a given play doesnt depend on an under-matched stephen heyer to hold up one on one against a DE.

the more i hear from players re. last year, i more i reflect on just how bad our coaching was last year. we probably had they worst coaching last year.

13 games is my guess. Can't have the season end without a little Sexy Rexy giving one last reference to Spurrier.
