Re: Mcnabb appears to be done and he is the reason for this loss

I thought this was a interesting parallel:

Ex-NFL QB Jake Plummer is playing a new sport these days - Shutdown Corner - NFL* - Yahoo! Sports


The grind of playing for an uber-perfectionist like Shanahan wore on Plummer during his time in the Rockies.

"I had a coach that, regardless of how well I thought I was playing or how well the majority of fans across the country thought I was playing, it was never good enough for him," Plummer said, not bitter but very matter-of-fact. "And that kind of gets frustrating.

"It just seemed like every game I could have completed these four more passes or these five more shots here and it would have been perfect. And that just wasn't my personality... But Shanahan wanted perfection and he wore a lot of us down there."

Plummer didn't sound surprised by the current circus unfolding in Washington, D.C., between Shanahan and Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb(notes).

"I think Shanahan is still searching for John Elway," Plummer said. "Somehow, someway, he thinks there's going to be another guy like John Elway.

"He coached a team to almost perfection [with Elway] so he wanted that again, he wanted that every time we went out there. It's just not realistic."

I think it's realisitic to push players towards perfection. If we want another superbowl in DC we gotta continue working towards perfection. He may never find another Elway but he needs to push players to play at their best level.

Maybe McNabb isn't exactly doing what he should. When Kyle Shanahan was getting uber-upset on the sidelines, i thought he was saying what play is that. It's been suggested by some "insiders" that McNabb isn't really doing what they want and making some bad decisions. While McNabb is an ultra-professional, maybe he is just doing his own thing a little bit and playing too loose.

Shanahan, instead of coming out and saying McNabb isn't running the plays we are calling and is making terrible decisions, comes up with a complete bull reason as to why he wasn't in there - the two-minute drill. This is so McNabb doesn't get discredited by the media, Shanahan takes all the heat for the decision, and it gives McNabb a golden opportunity to sharpen up with a BYE week without any media scrutiny.

This in turn makes it look like the exact opposite of what's going on: Shanahan is actually really protecting his QB and not throwing him under the bus and telling him get it right or you are out.

Otherwise, this is a cluster-****!
I guess Brett Farve is the only QB that can get away with doing his thing.

Re: Mcnabb appears to be done and he is the reason for this loss

I watched the game Sunday but did not post any messages on the game day thread Sunday. I have to say what stood out most about pur loss to the Lions was how the D-Line of Detroit played in our backfield from the 1st series to the end. McNabb was running for his life nearly everytime he dropped back to pass. However we did manage to take the lead with 4mins remaining when McNabb made a poor decision to throw into double coverage which resulted into a INT. That was a mistake that a vet and pro bowl QB cannot make. Hey McNabb is only human, look Farve threw a pick against the Jets a couple weeks ago on the last drive to go ahead for the win. I think this loss will do us more good than harm with the bye week to think about this. I say McNabb will step up his game in the 2nd half of the season.

What you want is push for excellence. I can (unfortunately personally) attest that a push for perfection is (very) counter-productive.
