What it means is absolutely nothing. McNabb
is McBaD. If two great coaches like Reid
and Shanahan send a player packing then that
means their best playing days are behind them.
They are history. Money would never enter in
to the deal for the team that they were on.
Teams would pay anything to keep a good player.
Same goes for Hasselbeck. Injury prone with
his back being a concern means the end for him.
Rice's hip surgery will be another story. I
doubt he will play like he did when he was well.
Vikings should have saved their $$$ and put it
towards the new stadium.

means Eric was right.I called this back when AND got a chuckle from a viking fan....Now,football wise,its a vet who can teach Ponder how its done,so he ( Ponder) can make his first Pro start during the middle of the season or some point closely after or when ( or If) Minn is out of any serious thoughts of playoffs

It means the stadium security personnel will be enforcing a new rule that people seated in the first 2 rows closest to the field will be required to wear helmets to prevent them from errant McNabb passes

HEY BRO! Good to see you. Jeez, you know I like McNabb, but he's got to be one of the most wild passers ever. They just sail. One plus, he has shown a penchant for tutoring young players. This could work out over the long haul. Things may get ugly in the short term.

how are you doing.Alls well here.Watching my team and seeing what they are going to do up against the cap.Released Justin Harrell and Nick Barnett,Letting Daryn College go and signed Crosby the kicker.I read the Vikes are trying to sign James Jones or Bralon Edwards.Either is pretty good.If you sign Jones of GB,quick,makes some nice catches,but,drops a few to many easy throws and some in very big spots,but will be a good addition.Hope all is well with you and yours and hoping we can talk football some this year! take care

Seems that is all thats left...butterfingers WR's...Edwards, Roy Williams,James Jones. Meanwhile Belicheat manages to manipulate his Cap another season and sign Ocho Cinco.

New management please....

Just need that key additional WR and some O/L help....one decent CB would help. I still dont agree with the McNabb deal with the other needs not yet addressed but...roll with it as they say

How tough is Donovan McNabb ?

Each morning before practice he has a heaping bowl of Wheaties with two fists full of wood screws sprinkled on them before adding milk.

I seem to remember they said that about Favre also. How did that work out for you?

Good Luck this season. I will be lurking

Not well, thanks in no small part to one of the crummiest O-lines I ever saw.

I hope Vikes coaches pull McNabb quickly if and when he starts throwing the ball wildly as is his habit.

Will "good" Donovan be able to last the season if the O-line continues it's porous ways?
