Donovan McNabb: Why Are People Writing Off the Former Eagles Quarterback?
Donovan McNabb Seems To Be Running Out of Options, But Why?
I remember when Donovan McNabb was one of the most highly regarded quarterbacks in the league.
Sure, he has accuracy issues and has struggled in big games, but as far as starting quarterbacks go, you could do much, much worse than McNabb. Washington had issues with him under center and it showed on the field as Mike Shanahan benched him in favor of Rex Grossman.
That action effectively ended the tenure of McNabb in a Redskins uniform and that's gotten us to the point where we're talking about his next destination, which seems to be up in the air. Sure, Minnesota and Arizona would seem like great destinations for a veteran quarterback, but even then, we're not sure that either team are sold.
There are other options out there, like Tennessee, who is looking for a veteran quarterback to help fill the void between Vince Young and Jake Locker's tenures under center but it's odd that there's not a strong market for McNabb.
It's not like he's coming off of a year like Brett Favre, where it was obvious that physically he couldn't play anymore. This is someone who still has good football left to play and should be a more valuable commodity in the open market.
If the Cardinals and Vikings pass on McNabb, they'll regret it, because he's someone who can make those teams contenders, especially considering the weapons both teams have on offense.
Just think about McNabb throwing to Larry Fitzgerald or handing off to Adrian Peterson and try and tell me that he can't win football games.
He's not Joe Montana, but McNabb can be an effective starter for a winning football team in 2011.
