Catching up with PFT Planet: McNabb in Minnesota

Thursday’s PFT Live features two general managers: Buddy Nix of the Bills and Jeff Ireland of the Dolphins.

On Wednesday, we featured you guys, who are hopefully less likely to create smokescreens during draft season.

Florio answered questions via Twitter, email, and phone on a variety of topics including Alex Smith’s future in San Francisco, Dononvan McNabb possibly heading to Minnesota, and whether games missed due to a lockout could be added late in the year.

    Question: Would McNabb not be a good back up to Vick in Phila? Remember I said back up.. Who knows the system better? Just a thought

    @oldbyrd: here are the first 5 reasons (there are many more) why McNabb would not be a good backup to Vick…

    1. McNabb thinks (and somewhat is justified) he still has starting QB talent and isnt ready to hold a clipboard for anyone
    2. Most of Philly was happy to see him go, just because they felt as though they needed a change (so bringing him back after a year makes no sense)
    3. If someone said you could be the President of a company (starting QB) or the Vice President (backup to Vick) which would you choose?
    4. The QB situation in Philly is too packed the way it is: Kolb, Vick, Kafka- why would they welcome yet another QB? with the lockout they are having a tough time dealing Kafka/Kolb the way it is
    5. Andy Reid and McNabbs relationship soured after Reid approved the trade to the floundering Redskins and put McNabb in a less than ideal situation last year

    That’s why Minnesota is the “King of Losers” when it comes to professional sports. McNabb, you’ve got to be f’n kidding me. Keep his lazy, overweight, didn’t learn the playbook ass back in Washington. If this is how Leslie Frazier thinks his team will move on -the only one sure to move on will be Leslie Frazier. I predict that if Donovan McNabb comes to the Minnesota Vikings there will be a boycott (of sorts), how big, don’t know but I will be one of them. And hell no it’s not a “black” issue, don’t start with that b.s., its a rotten football player issue. If Donovan McNabb was in his twenties o.k. fine-but he’s not.

    Ok, clown… how many articles did you post this in about various teams? Or maybe you weren’t even that original and are just taking someone elses lines. The Vikings have more than enough talent with Joe Webb at QB to win at least 5 or 6 games. Top 10 pick is definately a possibility, but so is a playoff birth if they get average or better QB play.

    Minnesota…say no to McNabb… and yes to him being the QB of the Redskins!

    Wherever he goes, McNabb will apparently get no respect… the Ill-gals never did and Shana-clown didnt either… what a waste of a good QB… Shouldve gone to the Cards.. they need veteran leadership and may not have acted like douches…

    Awwww, still bitter the Packers won the Superbowl and the Vikings are a franchise going backwards, not forward?

    The Vikings will draft a QB early but they still need a veteran to stick in there until the rookie learns the ropes. As long as McNabb is available as a FA and they don’t have to give anything up for him, they could do a lot worse.

  10. myeaglescantwin says: Apr 21, 2011 12:00 PM

    I love how everyone is still on McNabbs jock.. saying the eagles didnt give him any respect.. How about ten years.. 8 of which , we supported him 100%..

    It wasn’t until the last drive of the 04 superbowl that people got their doubts. We had the ball and the clock was just tick tick tickin away while he walked around and eventually vomitted on the field.

    How many games can you go into as the favorite,, fail miserably in & then still have support from the fans..

    get real ya jerk.
    all McNabb lovers are from the West Coast, where the only get to see 1-3 games and a bunch of highlights. you have no idea what you are talking about.

    that being said Donny Mac would rock in Minn.. a good running game to take off the pressure would be ideal fit. cause Donny the clown McNabb cracks under pressure..

    OH & check his record against teams above 500..

    idiots..
    giants suck.

    Here is the deal, Andy Reid the great coach that he is tailored his system to McNabb and McNabb was great for many years under Andy’s system. His numbers and success speaks for itself. This was a symbiotic relationship that made the Eagles so good for so many years.

    The issue now for McNabb is that he is 34, his age is what is against him.

    I’m a Redskins fan and I feel sorry for any QB that gets stuck playing QB on this team. DC is the place where QB careers go to die. The way our organization is ran is piss poor. I look up the BW parkway and see the Ravens who until recently had not been able to develop a pro-bowl QB but yet still manage to compete almost every year and wonder why we can’t do the same. Strong organizations can win even without a great QB.

    Also how is it that a team like the Patriots can find an All pro qb in the 6th/7th round and draft a qb who couldn’t even start in college and make him a pro-bowl qb while the Redskins can take a QB who made multiple pro-bowls and made the pro-bowl just the previous season and have him look like one of the worse qbs in the league?

    Heck even Jason Campbell who was mercillesly rediculed and ran out of town looked better as a qb playing for the Raiders.

    Which gets me to the purpose of this long rant. McNabb will be ok if the Vikings are his destination. He has 2-3 more quality years left in him and possible a few pro-bowl years.

    Blaming the ‘Skins problems on McNabb is very misguided. He is still a very talented QB who suffered from a lack of protection and quality targets in DC. If Coach Frazier’s game-plans are good enough and they hold on to quality players like Rice, the Vikings will be a contender again with McNabb at QB.

  14. arzcardinals says: Apr 21, 2011 1:20 PM

    I’ll take McNabb in AZ any day!!!

  15. JimmySmith says: Apr 21, 2011 1:24 PM

    Its anyone’s guess whether the Vikings actually get McNabb or draft their QB of the future this month.

    What is not in doubt is that the Vikings will surely make the wrong choice and set their franchise back another 5 years. Also guaranteed is that whatever choice they make, the Viking fans will proclaim it to be the work of a football genuis and surely result in the Vikings competing for the Superbowl. As usual, the fans will be wrong but the annual springtime predictions of greatness will continue despite the dismal reality of a last place finish. 50 years of futility means nothing, there is also next year.

    McNabb actually approved the trade to D.C. The Eagles could have sent him to Oakland or Buffalo. I was always a McNabb fan, and I wasn’t as down on him after SB 39 as a lot of people. What got me to not root for him anymore was the ’08 NFCCG against the Cards–true enough the Eagle defense had issues as well, but in the 1st half, the Eagles were inside the Cards 30 5 times and only came away with 6 points. And a lot of that was the fact that he was very inaccurate–inside a domed stadium no less.

    Reid knew he was done and that’s why he traded him. The playoffs against the Cowboys in 09 only accentuated that.

    Wonder if we in MN can include a provision in the new stadium bill that states “to get a new stadium the Vikes are not allowed to pursue McNabb” Id vote for that!!

    It’s not fair to credit the Patriots with “finding” the gem that is Tom Brady. In the normal world, we call that situation “winning the lottery”. If the Pats hadn’t struck gold by sheer fortune, they’d still be a downtrodden franchise.

    Though your points about the Redskins management sucking are true… somehow, though, with equally crappy management the Cowboys manage to have winning seasons. Y’all can, too!
