McNabb and the Vikings passing game have averaged 154.8 yards per game. It needs to improve or McNabb will lose his job to rookie Christian Ponder.
The Vikings brought McNabb to Minnesota this offseason because they wanted him to be the quarterback to lead them back to the postseason.
Many of the pieces of the 2009 NFC Championship team were still in place, leading the organization to believe that if it had a quarterback in place that the team could at least compete for a playoff spot.
At 0-4, the Vikings are LONG shots to have a winning record at this point let alone compete for a postseason berth.
Discussions have already arisen about whether rookie Christian Ponder should replace McNabb. McNabb needs to play better. If he continues to play the way he has (154.8 yards passing per game, one touchdown per game and .5 interceptions per game) then Minnesota will lose. And with that loss, McNabb will lose his starting job.
Look for a best McNabb of the 2011 season Sunday because he’s a proud man who doesn’t want to lose his job to a rookie.
