Re: McNabb out for the Jets

Yeah a few more reps would help.

Maybe an actual gameplan as well. Unfortunately Grossman will see the majority of the benefit of that, but that may help us later down the line.

McNabb has frequently underthrown, mistimed, etc especially on mid-range passes for much of his career though. What surprised me was the underthrow on Armstrong.. I know sometimes he'd get out the ball late to D-Jack but it wasn't usually underthrown from what I remember.

Re: McNabb out for the Jets

To me it is all about the reps. Yeah they go back to practice after the Cards, but that isn't a game situation. It will be embarrasing to have Donovan look rusty against the Boys on Sunday Night Football and Romo win.

As much of what you say is true,there something you have to think about.

Mcnabb has played NFL football now going on 12 years....12 years. Yes,the terminology isn't identical to what the eagles ran,but much of it is very simular if not some the same in some aspects.

Think about this for a second? Grossman probably knows this offense twice as better as mcnabb. (since coming over from kyle shanahan and the texans)

Who's looked better out there thus far?

Mcnabb has seen live action for over a decade. He knows the speed of the game and he knows how to play good football. He's not perfect,but the guy gets it done.

He can learn quite a bit,just from going through the motions...

Think I'm wrong? Don't believe me?
How much of a struggle did brett favre have last season in Minny?
See what I'm saying..

Are we going to be perfectly smooth..Probably not.
can you promise me that if mcNabb played the Jets and cardinals all game..4 qtrs,that we would be perfect?
No..ya can't.

Besides...I would rather have a 6-time pro bowler learning on the job as the season is underway...

Than a 6-time pro bowler in a cast or wrapped from his torn ACL on left knee or leg,learning the offense as the season goes on from the bench. (because we just had to have him in there for 2 meaningless pre season games)

Re: McNabb out for the Jets

I just want Donovan to shake the rust off, nothing more. I don't doubt he has grasped the offense or the mechanics. Shoot he has always had the mechanics down, he just looks out of sync. You want him both healthy and tuned up for Sept 12th.

Re: McNabb out for the Jets

Ace I agree with your post. DMac is going to be fine and we will see him improve through out the season. He will have a bad game or two, but he will have some great ones as well.


I am very interested to see us get the running game going and how that will affect Donovans game. I do not believe he has ever had a good ground game around him, and my hope is that the running game leads the offense and allows Donovan to use alot of playaction and roll outs.

Yeah what i wrote made it sound like its a overall positive, which i definitely dont really think. Id rather him be in there to play because he and the receivers definitely need it. I guess what i mean is that there are some positives to it. Im hoping McNabb makes it through the season i just think odds are against it, so Grossman getting some reps now could be positive.

Also i didnt realize Shanahan doesnt normally play his starting QB in the last preseason game. So i guess Rex would have gotten additional work anyways, but if McNabb isnt able to make it through a season the more reps the better.

Re: McNabb out for the Jets

Everyone and their mom knows Rex Ryan can't help himself and thus will call blitzes often.

Re: McNabb out for the Jets

Another thing I would like to add....

maybe with Rex in the game,we can see a little more running the ball. I understand we need to see what our passing game can do,but if you asked me what I'm more concerned about right now? I would tell you the running game and run blocking in addition.

We weren't bad against the bills and I understand the Ravens being great against the run. But I want to see more explosion off the ball in our running game.

I kNow fast willie is starting,but I hope to see more of LJ too this game. Yea,our 3rd and short has been terrible thus far...

Then again,our 3rd and long has been crazy good...
Things are weird right now,but I love it! lol

I'm hoping to see some better running against the Jets,though they are as good as the Ravens as well at stopping the run.

Re: McNabb out for the Jets

Looking at the schedule there are 8 games, I count, where the O-line must do a great job at picking up the Blitz packages of the other team going by what Ive seen this preseason. Is the O-line up to that or will McNabb be toast those 8 games? Cause you know if Rex shows the Blitz is effective then everyone will hop on that wagon.

If the Ravens were effective then the Jets might be also. The saving grace is that the Jets offense ain't all that great.

I'm rootin for you guys!

Re: McNabb out for the Jets

Regardless of the ankle McNabb probably wouldn't be playing in the last preseason game anyway. Shanahan doesn't like to play his starting QB in the last game.

Good deal! Yes!

McNabb can spend the next 20+ days going over the Cowboys defensive schemes and what has worked on them in the past and what they can game plan for Sunday Night...

rather than putting more unnecessary pressure on that sore ankle and limping out on the field Sunday Night.

Awesome!

True but he was supposed to play 3 quarters this week. I'm not sure how an offense with a QB that has WRs he's not used to, in a new system, will fare with rythm, timing and being in sync. Its going to be interesting to see how well maybe 3 quarters of live action together prepared them for week 1 vs Dallas.
