Donovan McNabb isn't working out, and the last thing an organization wants to do is alienate itself from its fan-base, because the Vikings are showing themselves to be to intimidated to admit a waiver-wire mistake.
If the organization is afraid of the fans barking over McNabb being a mistake now, how do you think they are going to react if McNabb remains the starter and the Vikings lose two more?
Give the kid the nod, and give old man time a rest.
Back in August I talked about how Christian Ponder had more time to study the offense and had already began working with some players—the kid's put in his study time.
Back in the summer I talked to Ponder about his excitement and level of comfortableness with the offense, and he responded by discussing his hopes for eventually getting the opportunity to help this team win with his skill set and growing knowledge.
No NFL fan wants to see his/her team lose each week, and no NFL fan wants to turn on the television or cart him/herself to a game in shame.
The bottom line is McNabb isn't working, the Vikings need a change and the fans want to win now.
Give the kid his chance, and let's see what he's got!
