Benched for a second straight year and now outplayed by a rookie, things don’t look so good for a guy who used to be one of the more exciting players in the league.
There have always been questions surrounding McNabb. He famously couldn’t hold his lunch in the huddle when a game wasn’t going well, which invokes memories of Any Given Sunday.
Then he moved on from the Eagles to Washington, and everyone thought he was going to be great. He wasn’t. He was passable at best and, at worst, a disaster on many levels.
Then he made it to Minnesota. Nobody could be more controversial than Brett Favre.
And then McNabb didn’t do much. He couldn’t get his team into the end zone. He couldn’t get his team down the field. He just couldn’t get a victory. Christian Ponder came in, and suddenly the Vikings have a semi-dangerous offense again.
McNabb has slid to the point that, even if he does have a few great years of health, he doesn’t seem to have the intangibles or mental makeup to start again. I’m not sure how he’ll react as a backup, but if he wants to stay in the NFL now, he needs to be on his P's and Q's...not to mention his X's and O's.
