Re: Prospects for McNabb in Minny

Why do we need a new thread about a player who is no longer here?

Re: Prospects for McNabb in Minny

I'd rather read about John Beck's prospects here in Washington. No offense but nobody is going to give much of a crap about McNabb's prospects in Minny, most of us have already moved on.

And if you want unnecessary Haynesworth threads, I'm sure one will pop up tomorrow.

Nope. I could ask you the same when you created the Saunders/Campbell thread.

It was quite clear that Campbell was a mere afterthought and that how Saunders evaluates his QB is what was important. But of course, the heuristic addicted human mind does not care for such things. It sees a noun, and it jumps to conclusions.

I was asked about a Campbell thread, and I showed the most recent one. Chill out dude, I'm just joking around.

You should start a John Friesz thread.

Re: Prospects for McNabb in Minny

I like McNabb and wish him well in Minn. I believe the offensive system there is more similar than dissimilar to Reid's so maybe he'll feel more comfortable right off the bat?

Re: Prospects for McNabb in Minny

I genuinely like Donovan McNabb as a person, even though i never felt that he was going to be the solution here.

I feel sorry for him right now because everybody knows that he's done except him. The article about his bleak prospects in Minnesota kind of made me sad, because they are really kind of kicking a guy while he is down. The Doug Pederson reference is also a very sad thing, as now McNabb will get to know what it was like for Pederson when he started half of McNabb's rookie season. He will now know what it is like to be viewed as nothing more than a stop-gap. Ironically enough Pederson is now the QB coach in Philly.

I just dont see McNabb going the way of other washed-out ex-star QB's and settling into the backup role. I believe we may be seeing his last season in the league.
