Shanahan can't be serious about McNabb - NFC East Blog - ESPN

Re: Mcnabb to miss Dallas game????

I don't think he is, but who knows? He might be thinking Rex would be good enough to pull it off. Thing is I am wondering if the crappy play by Dallas isn't one big mind screw in itself. I just can't fathom them looking so piss poor.

And while this isn't anything to panick about, the underlying and underreported story, in my opinion, is every little nick and bruise McNabb gets between now and whenever he signs an extension will impact for how long and for how much.

Belicheat has been lying on injury reports for the last 10 years. Excellent point regarding the contract ramifications. If he can't make it out of preseason healthy, McNabb certainly has less leverage to demand top QB dollars.

Re: Mcnabb to miss Dallas game????

Normally,I wouldn't be that concerned about Mcnabb being able to play...

IF,I was just going by reports that it's a sprained ankle...But I'll say again...I'm concerned that they're making it sound better..than it really is.

I swear his leg snapped in 1/2 when that ravens guy bent his leg back like a pretzel on that intentional grounding play.

As I said before..it looked A LOT like the Theismann leg break.

So part of me wants to believe it's all coach speak and Shanny is just playing mind games with the Cowboys...

Anotehr part of me thinks that maybe McNabb is hurt worse than being reported.
Who knows?

I do know this....Love the Rex and think he is playing very well with the exception of a few bad plays like the safety and pick. But overall,he's done pretty darn good for a backup.

But my prediction of us dropping 40 points on dallas opening Sunday night changes from not only the points we score..but IF WE WIN...?

I truly do not like that feeling.

Shanny..you got fired over a year ago buddy...
Now is not the time to play any ego against our most hated divisional opponent.

Unless McNabb is limping out on the field.......YOU BETTER start Mcnabb.

Because if you start REX...
YOU better win!!

That's all I got to say about that!

He seems to be walking around just fine. If the injury was severe he would be on crutches.

Re: Mcnabb to miss Dallas game????

It takes a few days for a minor sprain to heal, and it usually takes 3-4 weeks to return to playing sports, so we should be OK.

I think we are going to kick butt anyway. We will just kick it better, and be able to get our foot further up their butts with McNabb under center.

Re: Mcnabb to miss Dallas game????

Shanahan didn't sound very optomistic in his assessment of the McNabb situation. There appeared to be a hint of dissapointment in his expression.

McNabb has not been able to practice, has been experincing some difficulty with the nuances of a new offensive system and by his own admission, needs more time to make the necessary adjustments from what he's been accoustomed too after working eleven years in the same system.

Anything less than 100% would not be good for starting McNabb in the season opener. Futher aggeravation to his existing injury would only serve to set him back even more.

Re: Mcnabb to miss Dallas game????

I think we all need to get use to Mike Shannahan playing mind games with the media on injuries, much like New England does. I think McNabb will be find in two weeks. The way the Cowboys have looked and the way the Skins 2nd team moved the ball on the Jets' 1s, I don't think I'm really worried. The turnover ratio has been great in the preseason, keep it up guys. I can see DeAngelo Hall getting 8-10 INTs this year.

I can. They have been in training camp for an entire month, doing 14 hour days and have only had one day off.

Add in the fact that Jerrah split camp between two geographical locations, in different time zones no less just so he could sell a few friggin tee-shirts, jerseys and ball caps.

I did not even watch the game against Houston on Saturday evening, I already knew before kickoff that Dallas would have one thing on thier mind, not the game but the fact that after the game they finally get to go home and sleep in thier own beds.

Thier camp started a week earlier than the rest of the league and just wrapped up on Friday. Then that game on Saturday. All they wanted to do was get out of there injury free and go home that night.

McNabb will play. Not worried at all.

Re: Mcnabb to miss Dallas game????

I remember when we played in the HOF game a few years back, we had the same sort of issue. Of course, it didn't get any better, as at the end of the year when we collapsed, one thing everyone talked about was the extra time the HOF game added to our schedule. And then you guys also have a very early bye week. Overall, I think you will struggle more than expected, especially if you have to rely on backups along your line.

I never want to take too much from a preseason game. to add to your point, Houston had a big crowd of rowdy fans for a preseason game. It had the feeling of a regular season game & they responded to their fans.

With or without McNabb I'm very concerned about T. Williams blocking Ware. I see some help coming his way, which creates other one on one pass rushing opps. Dallas should be pretty tough in that area.

If I was a dallas fan I would be a little concerned about the way Romo answered questions during the game on the sideline. He sounded very unsure of himself & he is usually pretty quick witted w/reporters, especially in such a meaningless game. I got the sense that things weren't great w/them, but it might just be a reflection of 1 bad night. The romo & felix jones talks didn't look good either, might be some friction there.

I will really be worried if Rex is our starter. I noticed friday night that it seems he can put the ball on the money in the middle of the field. But rush him or make him go to the sidelines & he puts it in traffic a lot. His accuracy was like night and day when comparing the middle of the field to the sidelines.
