Did Donovan McNabb realize he was playing in a regular season game in the NFL? There are three college quarterbacks (Landry Jones, Matt Barkley and Andrew Luck) and probably 10 current backups that could play better than McNabb did on Sunday. McNabb threw for a pitiful 39 yards with one touchdown and one interception, while completing 46% of his passes, equating in a 47.9 passer rating.
This doesn't look good for McNabb, the Vikings or my predictions for Comeback Player of the Year. I thought McNabb could thrive in this system and make plays when needed but this was not even close to the case.
If McNabb doesn't start stepping up his play it's going to be Christian Ponder time sooner rather than later and that seems like it will be a season ender for the Vikings. Maybe Mike and Kyle Shanahan weren't that far off the mark...
