Re: "Donovan McNabb: Mediocre at Best" Article

He is certainly above mediocre but lets be honest he isn't in the league with other top qbs. He doesn't throw well, makes average decisions at best and doesn't run like he used. He has a ton of intangibles though and always seems to make big plays when they need them and that puts him way above mediocre.

Re: "Donovan McNabb: Mediocre at Best" Article

The author of the article is claiming that McNabb is not being black by not running as much, and for not giving some of his paycheck to TO, somebody who outwardly criticized him on more than one occasion for no reason, and Westbrook. It is a ridiculous arguement. So Donovan might not be considered the best in the league, he is far from mediocre. Stupid arguement from a stupid black man

For whatever reason, some people love to demean this guy's talents. He's obviously a big part of why the Eagles have been so successful over the years. I think the media loves to attack someone who has class.

As much as i hate the Eagles, Mcnabb has been nothing short of impressive during the regular season, before he got injured. True, he couldn't win the big games, but he is definitely not a mediocre quarterback.

Re: "Donovan McNabb: Mediocre at Best" Article

I followed Mcnabb a little bit in college, and he has always been a strong quarterback - both in leadership qualities and talent. Mcnabb has lead the Eagles to what, four NFC Championship appearances? Of course, only one of those he actually won, but even then, I don't believe T.O. was playing in that game.

Believe me, if McNabb wanted to become a Redskin, I'd sign him in a heartbeat.

That the Eagles had to trade for T.O. even though they had Freddie Mitchell, Todd Pinkston, and Gregg Lewis speaks volumes about McNabb's inability to play. I mean Mitchell, Pinkston, and Lewis are Pro-Bowlers. Oh never mind, they stink. McNabb has done more with less than any other QB in the league.

Apparently you don't like McNabb because he's one hell of a QB.

If I had to draft a QB, the only ones I'd take before McNabb would be Peyton Manning, Carson Palmer, and Tom Brady. The guy is definately one of the elite QBs in the league. As you point out, he's a playmaker.

JUST A CLEAR CUT EXAMPLE OF BLACK ON BLACK CRIME..... I hate this because it becomes a debate again, IF Black QB are smart enough or good enough to play the position, This is worse the Racist Lambargh, saying that... I'll say this only reason that it a debate it because of FEAR, and if anyone makes comments about black QB's and if they can play....probably because there afraid that the on position that the league can't giveway too........JUST LIKE GOLF...NOW THAT WERE PLAYING THAT, WATCH OUT AMERICA

Re: "Donovan McNabb: Mediocre at Best" Article

The mcnabb & vick style of QB is not the style of QB (run & athletic) that wins super bowls. I'd mauch rather have Tom Brady, P. Manning style (pro style pocket QB). That way of playing the position works best in the pro game.

Is Mcnabb average, I think he's better than that but not the great player the media makes him out to be.
