ESPN- "Source says team plans to release McNabb today". Will the Colts pick him up?
Sign the beast!!!!!
Don't the Jets need help at qb?
McNabb to the Jets would be hysterical. I hate this move, it makes it less likely that we can make a move for Joe Webb, who I covet as a WR.
Doubt the colts would pick him up.I know McNabb has sucked but i am sure the bears would love to have him.
It will be interesting to see if the Texans go after him. Or maybe people around the league just think he's done.
McNabb on the Texans may not be bad. He has through waivers, so some team may claim him before the Texans
McNabb's either going to the Colts or Bears I think. Probably Bears.
Sometimes it is best to just quit, while some folks still have a good memory.. rather than continue on making a fool of yourself.
If you're already out of the playoff picture, there's not a lot of point in picking up the contract of an expensive vet like McNabb. But this is an interesting year, with 2 teams in Houston & Chicago that find themselves with strong records and nobody at all to play quarterback. McNabb could actually find himself playing games that matter before this season is over.
See Brett Favre on "making a fool of yourself" during last year:
He could go to Chicago and help keep that team as a playoff team.
McNabbs favorite WR is the TURF!!!:rocker:
Yeah, McNabb to Chicago makes a lot of sense. He's grew up in the area, too.
He's good at finding the open man (on either team).
Like a Thanksgiving Turkey, McNabb is finished and in the dumpster with the rest of the garbage.
Can he rush the passer???
Thought it had to be said!
I think he's long past his shelf life. However were I the Texans or Bears I'd consider signing him since my present QBs really suck.
In my perfect fantasy world, he'd go to the Jets.
You beat me to it. I was going to say, "...anyone with a jersey number in the 20's or 50's (or 90's.... he likes to spread it around)".
Contract for 2011 is a little over $5 million so a team making a waiver claim would pick up the pro-rata share of that - about $1.5 million. Bears (7-4) would have priority over the Texans. Early reports are that the Texans are up against the cap and will not make a waiver claim.
Gary Kubiac is one of the better Offensive minds in football and a disciple of Mike Shanahan. If McDonalds couldn't run the Redskins Offense he CANNOT! run the Texans Offense. McDonalds = dumb as bricks.
Ultimate Texans Â» McNabb not coming to the Texans
McNabb is terrible people. Not even an NFL caliber QB anymore.
Time to hang up the cleats Donovan.
McNab's plight brings to mind the value of Any Reid's coaching. For a decade, McNabb was considered one of the top QB's in the league. Not in the Brady and Manning class, but certainly in the next tier.
The moment he leaves Philly and Reid his production falls off the face of the earth....in TWO places. He's been benched in TWO places where the alternative to him both were horrible. Grossman isn't good enough to keep John Beck on the bench, and TJackson has been a serial failure his entire career, yet both were considered better options than the fading McNab.
That should tell you something about Reid's influence on McNab, because there is no way he could have regressed so quickly physically from 2 years ago. The cause of his horrible play is much more the effect of his mind than his body.
That being said, I liked McNab and thought he had a great run with Philly. I'm hoping he gets to Chicago to end his career with the "hometown team"
Kinda shows the stupidity of the contract offer the Redskins made with him last year.
McNabb is really, really, really washed up. Nobody will sign him.
Should there really be any demand for McNabb? I mean, we all remember the great things he did for Philly, but look at the colassal failure he has been for other teams.
Fool me once, shame on you!
Fool me twice, shame on the Vikes.
Fool me thrice, call me the (Bears?).
I don't think Donovan has gotten anywhere near to the "making a fool of himself" stage. He's still better than several starting QB's and he's probably capable of playing respectably as a backup or emergency starter for another two or three seasons.
McNabb was benched in WAS to give Shanahan the illusion of being in control. Wasn't McNabb on pace to break redskins passing records?
As for the Vikings, most losing teams will do some kind of major shakeup midseason, especially if they have a rookie QB to start evaluating for the next season. Oh, this is also in response to your comment about Tavaris Jackson being a failure, he's in Seattle, not Minn. McNabb was benched because the Vikings are going nowhere and they need to see if their rookie QB is worth keeping.
Expecting a QB to succeed with either of those teams is kind of dumb, both had coaching changes just before his arrival, both have awful WR corps (WAS is just plain bad, and the vikings jettisoned their #1, the #2 can't stay healthy, and the #3 has since been cut), WAS had no running game and he had no offseason with the Vikings.
The guy hasn't had much help in the past 2 years.
Edit: I do agree though, he should just hang up his cleats, he's had an above average career. It's just too bad that he spent most of it with a team that treated him as poorly as they did, when he was one of the best things to ever happen to them.
I bet it's pretty tough for a veteran declining QB that is accustomed to winning going to a crappy or rebuilding team. They try to do too much, get frustrated, or whatever. What worked for them for years all of a sudden is the wrong thing to do entirely.
From my eyes, he looks like he's lost some physical skills, AND he's lost some of his mental sharpness and decision making. For a QB of his level, one or the other might be acceptable, both not both. And so here he is looking for a new gig.
That said, I agree with the few posters that think he might still have something in the tank. It's just a question if he lands in the right situation; get's excited again, focuses, plays within his limits and buys into the team concept (which I admit might be the tough part for him). If I was a QB-less playoff hopeful team, I'd at least consider it. What would it hurt to bring him in and test the waters. You could catch lightning in a bottle.
