    Helmut Donovan McNabb surprised by benching

    Donovan McNabb surprised by Minnesota Vikings quarterback switch - ESPN

    excuse me, you play piss poor so far this season , get pulled in your last game and you're surprised that the HC is benching you? Blind faith in your ability or pure stupidity? I know which my money is on
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    It's hard to justify keeping Ponder on the bench while McNabb leads an inept offense, but I still don't believe starting Ponder ist he right move.

    If they're trying to win, McNabb still gives us the best shot. He played fairly well last week, same couldn't be said for anybody else on the team, including our usually reliable Kluwe, Longwell, Peterson and Allen.

    I imagine he was also surprised to see the picket lines from all of the worms protesting his passes that are killing them off in record numbers.

    In the end the simple fact that he was surprised by his benching states pretty clear why he was a bad choice to sign in the first place.

    Don't know why he is surprised. TJ started getting booed by the home crowd, he got benched. Childress got lowdly booed by the home crowd, hee got fired. McOnehopper gets booed at home...... it's inevitable.

    ALL deserved at the time I might add.
    Why must you defend everything this FO does....to the point of making your self look like a yes man.
