    Mental mechanics or physical?

    Or his mechanics aren't fixable. Didn't the Skins bench him for a damned reason?

    It seemed to me he was thrwoing off his back foot and leaning away from the throw. Almost like he was flicking it.

    He stepped up many times and away from pressure and made sure footed throws for most QBs.

    His wrists just hate him.

    Limp as fresh spaghetti.

    My "told you so" to all the McNabb lovers:
    "throws more bad balls than anyone I've ever seen. If you think Tarvaris Jackson's mechanics are inconsistent, watch McNabb, and he's been in the league for 11 years."
    Childress-McNabb reunion?

    "He should complete a lot more. His completion percentage doesn't vary with his receivers. He's the same QB he was in 2000, minus most of the athleticism. His inconsistency as a passer is all that is consistent."
    Donovan McNabb to Minnesota Vikings?It makes sense

    "Throws as many bad balls as any QB I've ever seen."
    Donovan McNabb to Minnesota Vikings?It makes sense
    As much as I love being correct, I really wish I was wrong on this one.

    OMG I was thinking the same thing when I read that post. Please don't get Marty started with that again! Lol

    Sorry Rick! Keep up the good work.

    Nope. A limp wrist is a whole different discussion.

    "Whether it be his drops or whether it be the footwork, whatever we need to do to help improve some of those balls that aren't quite on target," Frazier said during Monday's news conference. "That's not the only reason we're falling short. That's one of the reasons; there were some other things we've got to work on as a team. Specifically to Donovan, consistent play at the position is what you're always looking for."

    Hey Leslie! You might want to wait at least 24 hours before contradicting what you said earlier. You're still suffering from CRE.


    I don’t think our quarterback position is our problem right now,” Frazier said. “We’re not thinking about anything at the quarterback position.”
