    McNabb makes no sense to me.
    Getting booed out of Philly means nothing. Philly fans are the worst, and they'll be booing Desean jackson and Mike VIck soon enough.

    Washington had NO line, no receivers and no run game, a brand new coach and no defense. Nobody can succeed there. I take what McNabb did there with a grain of salt.

    A moment of panick set in the other day when I didn't have football on channel 124.

    Silly buggers shifted things around and I missed it.

    The local yutzs agree with the Sirius guys as well. They took it to a whole nuther level when they started saying things like we heard about Pepp when he was a Viking.......(Limited his reads to half the field).
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    For clarity: I agree, Philly fans are the worst. I live in Northern Delaware, have for 15 years...I'm qualified. As such, they did not boo McNabb out of town, they simply did not want him back. Not true as it relates to some other players the Eagles have let go, most notably, Brian Dawkins. Regardless of Washington's woes, he sucked, and, I don't think he is the veteran of choice IMHO.

    Yep, new channel 88... Exactly what the book is on him, also, he is not the most accurate QB to be sure. He definitely won his fair share of games, but, methinks those days are long gone.

    Re: Donovan McNabb to Minnesota Vikings?It makes sense

    I like the move to get mcnabb. I don't know how good rhett is but joe webb and ponder need to develop more. I like webb and don't like ponder quite as much. Only because I think we panicked and reached for him a lot. its a tough one on who to cut or put on the practice squad. I agree palmer would be a better short term qb in my mind butt hey at least we got a vet and not 3 rookies/2nd year qbs to lead us. With mcnabb taking the reigns for a few years the vikes could go somewhere with the weapons around him..and if we don't go anywhee with him it kind of ensures us with at least 1 qb that will develop better.
    None

    I agree 100% mcnabb had nothing last year. With ap and our recievers arounf him he should be decent. Along with the decent young qbs behind him he'll step up his game or should.

    I'll give you a hint, he'll make Webb and Ponder look like passing gods.

    Palmer is not available. Owner said yesterday there's no chance of trading him.

    Get back to me week 14 and let me know if it is still a good move. I suspect once reality sets in it might not look so appealing.

    I bet the Cards were saying the exact same thing when they took a busted up Warner off the Giants hands.
