Re: Viking release McNabb

One thing is for sure. It's been 2 years since DM5 left and Philly has yet to win a playoff game. So instead of them making it over the hump they have taken several steps in the opposite direction lol. I hope the curse continues indefinitely

With McNabb, I think it was just that he wasn't here long enough to gain any "longtime supporters." But you'll find plenty of people who believe they were similar and that the Redskins managed to screw up both situations with two different front offices.

The difference is that McNabb's value to the franchise was the highest on the day he was acquired, and just tanked from there at every opportunity. The selection of Jason Campbell in the first round in 2005 was pretty much universally viewed as an overdraft, but Campbell looked viable as a NFL starter until the day he was traded.

Re: Viking release McNabb

What I wonder now is will dm5 swallow his pride and make himself available as a backup, where he could almost certainly play another few years (brunell is 41, and garcia just worked out for the texans at 41), or will mcnabb just retire.

I personally think he will retire, but if don loves the game and wants to help out still, im sure someone will sign him as a primary backup. Who knows, he may get the chance to start again one day, you never really know in the nfl...

Re: Viking release McNabb

McNabb's skill deteriorated so fast because of his lazy work habits and poor study habits. When he was younger he could get away with those flaws but not once he got older. I think his bad work and study habits are the reason MN got rid of him as they didnt want DM's bad habits rubbing off on their young QBs.

The only reason to bring him (and AH for that matter) is to have them sit in a corner with dunce caps on.

Not according to him....
I just heard an int with DM on the M/M show. He says "ask ANY of the players on either the Skins or Vikes. THEY would tell you I am the first guy there and the last guy to leave........"
......to funny

Re: Viking release McNabb

I would never dis his career simply because he never won a sb. He made it there & he lead a very good team for years w/limited weapons. He was a pretty good qb in his day, but that day has passed.

I think he could play another few years as a backup if he wants to, and due to injuries he could be in a starting lineup next week. I think even philly has to consider him, he might help improve morale on that team.

Re: Viking release McNabb

I would pick up McNabb off of waivers so I could start him against the Jets and then bench him again for Rex Gross. Then I would cut him the following Monday.


:cheeky-sm


I'm a evil bastard like that.
