    3000 yards Passing, only 6 Ints??? 18 Tds.

    Considering he was injured, but anytime a QB throws for 3000 yards and only has 6 ints...thats pretty impressive.

    If i was an NFL team in need for a QB, i would sign him in a heartbeat..even with the injuries...

    A team with a decent O-line can protect him. I think he would be successful in Chicago...i would say KC, but there O-line sux, and they will ride Croyle.

    Rumor: Vikings might want to trade for McNabb.

    i would do that in a heartbeat. T. jackson isnt the answer..

    I would get McNabb and maybe draft a good 2nd round qb to learn

    If Philly doesn't want McNabb, there are lots of places that he would be welcome. I could see him in Miami passing to Stallworth and Ginn.

    mcnabb definantly is not the best long term answer, but he is by far the best short term answer.

    McNabb is a three year alternative for any team.

    i feel McNabb is underrated and i dont understand the criticism he receives..yes he got hurt and isnt as good of a scrambler anymore(even before that he stopped running a lot and became a better passer). Hes a very good QB..i think hes top 7 imo.

    i think McNabb would be a solution anywhere..Bills/Jets/Dolphins/Ravens/Chiefs/GIANTS/Bears/Lions/Vikings/Falcons/49ers

    i think all these teams can use a QB next season..but teams like Bills/Jets/Giants will put off and use the guys they have. Dolphins will fail to admit they screwed up draft so they will keep Lemon or Beck as starters next year. a place like Detroit would be great imo..Kitna isnt good..vastly overrated because his #s. McNabb can spread ball around in an offense that uses a lot of 3-4 WR sets. Hes smart..capable of making reads,etc and having guys like Johnson and Williams would be terrific for him

    The Phins won't pass on McNabb because NEW VP The Tuner will have no problem deciding that Cam & Co's drafting of total failure Beck high in round 2 was a mistake.

    Bills will stay with one or both of their guys at QB.

    Gints are far from declaring Eli the BUST that he is.

    McNabb could do well for a number of other clubs, esp the Vikes.

    he would do well in Minnesota..his ex O Cord..same offense..very good RBs..good OL..decent-average WRs. Thats like him in Philly last few years before TO and after. Great RB = Westbrook, good OL..and WRs like Greg Lewis, Freddie Mitchell..and now some better ones in Brown & Curtis

    I think McNabb is one of the most overrated players in the NFL.
    Watch him play. He is horribly inaccurate throwing the ball more than 8-10 yards downfield. All of his 'numbers' have always been based on a WCO that frees up receivers 2-5 yards downfield and get run after the catch.
    He is the QB in the NFL most likely to throw the ball 3 yards on 3rd and 12.
    His system allows him to put up some numbers, but the points scored off of those numbers never add up to much.
    The Eagles have had some success since McNabb has been there, but the success has had a lot more to do with the defense than the offense, although everyone wanted to give McNabb the credit.

    Is he a starting caliber NFL QB? Sure, look at whats out there. Is he a guy you win because of? No way.
    A team that is otherwise strong can win with McNabb (but you better have a capable backup) but a medicore team is never going to be a winner because of him.
