Re: "Donovan McNabb: Mediocre at Best" Article

Sounds to me like a pissed off Philly fan, trying to vent his frustration by taking a blow at an easy target, McNabb. This article never would have happened if Terrell Owens had shut up and played football. Unfortunately the Eagles would be competing for the division and the McNabb bashing would be squashed. McNabb is a top five quarterback, whether he is running or not. If Philly don't like him, trade him to the Skins.

What a pile of shi-aving cream. First Rush Limbaugh, then TO, the the local NAACP. Who's next? The Pope?

Note to Donovan: it's OK to get mad at these people. You got cause.

Michael Vick is overrated and it has nothing to do with being black. It's because the guy is flat out not a good pocket passer. He's exciting to watch, don't get me wrong, and maybe he develops the pocket-presence later in his career to become a more all around quarterback, but as of right now, Vick is more of what I would call a mediocre quarterback. Enough with the race card, it's a tired excuse, especially in this context.

For the record:

McNabb in 04 - 64% completion percentage, 3875 yards 31tds/8picks

Brady in 04 - 60.8% completion percentage, 3692 yard 28tds/14picks

Vick is definitely overrated.

Look, the guy is incredibly talented without a doubt. But he's just not a complete package at QB yet. Note that I said yet.

He gets a ton of hype due to his athletic ability, but as far as QB's go there are a plenty of guys I'd take over him if I were building a franchise.

Re: "Donovan McNabb: Mediocre at Best" Article

The person who wrote that article is not a prolific writer by anymeans. He seems to float back from this to that barley touching topics. He doesn't have a main thesis he is trying to prove; he just seems to type about whatever enters his mind. His argument I would assume would be how Mcnabb used race to propel his career. The writer tried to be poignant with everything and just altogether missed the fact that McNabb went to the confrence finals four times. Who considers that achievement mediocre?

Re: "Donovan McNabb: Mediocre at Best" Article

Some people love to set themselves up(at least in their own minds) as the standard bearers of this or that and judge all others who are doing or attempting.this clown is not worth listening to. i'll take mcnabb in a heart beat.lets be real, the eagles have lacked balance for years and that's why they lost the super bowl.i can understand being frustrated but to glorify owens and tear down mcnabb is crazy.these people need to go away and never come back.it's really sad, give money to ownes, for what? he just signed the contract, was talked to before he did to make sure this was ok. now one year later owens wants to change it and the eagles rightly said NO!!!.these fans do not seem to me to remember their history ok sucking for sooooo long.this is sorry.this is why owens is not welcome here.

You've got 3 kinds of QBs in the NFL:

Pocket Passers - stand in the pocket, deliver the ball, or throw it away or take a sack. Examples: Manning, Bledsoe, Marino, Doug Williams.

Scramblers - prefer to make throws from the pocket, but will scramble out when under pressure and make throws on the run. Examples: Steve Young, John Elway, Joe Montana, Jake Plummer.

Runners - guys that aren't good enough or confident enough at throwing the ball, so when pressured they look to run rather than scramble away to find an open receiver. Examples: Vick, Randall Cunningham.

You can't be a winning QB without looking to throw whenever possible.
Sure, thats what you really meant

I think that....well nevermind, I'm not even sure what I think after that unintelligible, grammatical and rhetorical trainwreck of a post.

You might have a great point in there for all I know, but I don't think anyone could decipher what you just said.
