Donovan McNabb: Mechanics issue “getting out of hand”
Donovan McNabb: Mechanics issue “getting out of hand” | ProFootballTalk
“This whole mechanics thing is getting out of hand,” McNabb said. “Somebody says something about mechanics — everybody works on your mechanics, no matter what position you play. You watch the film and you try to work on different techniques. This whole mechanics thing is really something that I haven’t changed or anything of that nature.”
He later bristled at another direct question about his inaccuracy.
“I guess, according to y’all, my whole career I’ve been inaccurate. It’s just making the play when the play needs to be made.”
He might consider actually looking at some film before he disputes that his mechanics have any problem. Just because they were bad before but he was more athletic which helped mask the problems doesn't mean anything.

I wonder if the team even talked to Shanahan about his concerns with McNabb or if they just took DM's word for it.

I was initially OK with McNabb joining the team, just like with Favre, as long as he performed. Hell, I even gave him less of a standard to play by than I did Favre. He's underwhelmed me with his performance so far. He'll have to turn his game around big time before I call this move a bust.Vegans are eating the rainforests. =(

" getting out of hand " ??? sounds like an adequate description of most of the balls he throws... off target, one hop and a spiral on a ball that you'd expect from an english soccer player rather than an american QB..Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

You know, when so many people all say the same thing, then maybe, just maybe, they might have a point. It's fine to shrug off a little criticism here and there, but this is way more than that. Sometimes the majority is right.
At this point, it has become a matter of stubborn pride and denial.

And to pile on.. The Common Man Progrm today was hilarious. Well, the uni-sex bathroom bit was at least. The jist of the story was that there was a single uni-sex bathroom in a Vancouver restaurant that had 6 stalls. Inside each stall was a sign that had a male stick figure standing up in front of a toilet with the red circle/slash over it, implying that you MUST sit down to use the toilets. That sparked the conversation of how insulting it was to males who have great aim to be 'forced' to sit down and piss. Common went on for awhile about how he's been a great urinator for 50 years and never once missed. One of the many, many jokes made from the bit was what if Donovan McNabb used that bathroom and he, too, decided he wasn't going to sit and pee. I believe the crack was, "McNabb can't one or two-hop his urine into the toilet."
Anyway, I had a great laugh at that bit.Vegans are eating the rainforests. =(
