Let’s all say it together: McNabb isn’t going to the Cardinals

Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb is called for a delay of game for calling consecutive time-outs by referee Morelli in the second half of NFL football game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Landover, Maryland Reuters

Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb has a home in Arizona, and the Cardinals need a quarterback.

But McNabb isn’t going to the Cardinals.

The Cardinals aren’t interested,” writes Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic. And this is what reporters all across the country have been saying for the last two years.

McNabb was available last offseason, too. The Cardinals showed no interest, preferring to try Derek Anderson, and rookies John Skelton and Max Hall. Arizona is again in the market for a quarterback, but not a 34-year-old stopgap who’s never played outside a West Coast offense.

The Cardinals do plan to be aggressive about finding their next signal caller, according to G.M. Rod Graves.

Signing McNabb, after the Redskins inevitably release him, would be about the least aggressive quarterback move Graves could make. They’d be in the market for a new passer in 2012.

    Fitz is bummed. He was looking forward to 80 shoestring catches this year

  2. medtxpack says: May 5, 2011 3:33 PM

    and McNabb wherever he goes will also be looking for another new team in 2012….

  3. goawayeverybody says: May 5, 2011 3:34 PM

    It’s going to be Kevin Kolb. You can write it down.

    Let’s all say it together: McNabb isn’t going to the Cardinals
    ———–
    AND…Let’s all say it together: McNabb isn’t going to the Vikings

  5. hobartbaker says: May 5, 2011 3:35 PM

    Yeah, why take the guy who kept Kevin Kolb’s overrated butt on the bench for three years for nothing, when they can give up a first round pick for the backup.

  6. pacificamjr says: May 5, 2011 3:37 PM

    the cardinals will blow in 2011 no matter who’s throwin the picks!

  7. sf69ers says: May 5, 2011 3:39 PM

    Please Arizona pass on a washed up veteran QB. Last time you brought one in, he only turned the team and his career around.

  8. spungy says: May 5, 2011 3:40 PM

    McNabb would fit well in Cincinnati. We could use a one-year West Coast teacher for Dalton.

  9. phillycheez says: May 5, 2011 3:43 PM

    Might be time for #5 to hang ‘em up. He might get a one or two year deal to break in a rookie or give a team like the vikings a shot at making some noise right away, but other than that it looks like he’s done (taps chest, points to sky)

  10. cytofed says: May 5, 2011 3:44 PM

    They should sign Alex smith away from the 49ers. He’ll be a great fit in thier offense, he’ll be a geat player in arizona.

  11. smacklayer says: May 5, 2011 3:48 PM

    Mark it here, Peyton Manning to AZ. He will be an UFA because of the sham lawsuit and AZ will offer him a $25million/year contract.

  12. duanethomas says: May 5, 2011 3:50 PM

    The rumor I heard from a well placed source in The Cardinals organization is, they are really high on Vince Young. :)

  13. azskinsfan says: May 5, 2011 3:57 PM

    The big secret is McNabb will stay with the Redskins for the 2011 season. Why do you think they didn’t draft a QB? That’s for next year.

  14. eaglesnoles05 says: May 5, 2011 4:08 PM

    Yeah McNabb will stay with the redskins- They’ll need someone in case Grossman gets hurt.

    That is a stupid, stupid team right there. Have been for many years.

  15. djrando7 says: May 5, 2011 4:11 PM

    LETS ALL SAY IT TOGETHER:

    WARREN MOON IS MAD. The Cardinals did not speak with him aobut this first.

  16. vadog says: May 5, 2011 4:18 PM

    Nor will he be going to the Vikings! Buffalo, Cincinnatti, Miami, Jets, Tennessee…are all possibilities for back-up jobs. I think when he sees the writing on the wall, McNabb will retire…he’s a smart guy with more dignity than Brett Favre.

  17. shackdelrio says: May 5, 2011 4:23 PM

    Let’s see. Three of the worst teams last season (Arizona, Buffalo, Washington) all pass on QBs in this year’s draft. Next year will likely feature the highest rated QB prospect since Peyton Manning. You don’t want to screw that up by signing a veteran like McNabb.

  18. NoHomeTeam says: May 5, 2011 4:34 PM

    Who’s out there to “be aggressive” and get?

    Kolb? With what Reid will ask for him? If “aggressive” means overpaying, sure.

    Bulger? How aggressive would you have to be to get him? Does anybody else want him badly enough to require “aggression?”

    Orton? Hasselbeck? Sage Rosenfels?

  19. elevando1 says: May 5, 2011 4:44 PM

    I feel bad for any Cards QB that has to play behind that O line.

  20. kingjoe1 says: May 5, 2011 4:49 PM

    Lets see I got Kolb in AZ, Palmer in Minny, and McNabb in Seattle.

    Only AZ wins a division, the rest miss the playoffs.

  21. kissbillsrings says: May 5, 2011 4:51 PM

    Who gets the #1 pick next year…my $$ is on Washington….followed closely by AZ, especially if they get MILK TOAST Kolb….what exactly has that guy really ever done besides lose his starting job to Vick….STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES!!!!

  22. moochzilla says: May 5, 2011 4:53 PM

    Some people make mistakes in they lives, and they made a big on last year.

    Wow, that never gets tired. Right up there with “playoffs” and “practice” for catchphrases I’ll be saying when I’m 90 years old.

  23. raider316 says: May 5, 2011 4:55 PM

    Let’s say it altogether the Cardinals aren’t interested in making the playoffs next year.

  24. gdeli says: May 5, 2011 5:05 PM

    then he is going to the vikes? oh shi..

  25. moochzilla says: May 5, 2011 5:06 PM

    No way McNabb stays with the Skins unless he re-works his contract. You don’t pay backups with no future as much money as he’ll make in 2011-2012.

    Heck, most teams would barely pay Matt Shaub as much as McNabb is set to make!

  26. mikebrownstepdown says: May 5, 2011 5:19 PM

    Bengals should trade ochocinco for mcnabb straight up. I’m no mcnabb fan, but mcnabb is a west coast offense guy and could help Dalton with grudens new west coast system. Just a thought.. Besides it sounds like a mike brown move to me, bringing in talent past their prime.

  27. flavordave says: May 5, 2011 5:28 PM

    Lets say it together: Eagles fans were right.

  28. DarthHoodie says: May 5, 2011 5:33 PM

    If I am Carolina, I would take a look at Mcnabb as a mentor for Newton. Arguably the most successful Africian-American QB of all-time, McNabb was drafted high and played for years in one of the toughest sports cities in America. McNabb could start immediately and then Carolina could part ways with Jimmy Claussen, who has not exactly made himself a fan favorite here. Claussen might get new life if traded to DC

  29. thefiesty1 says: May 5, 2011 5:47 PM

    McNabb is a one year stop gap in Minnesota. They have to get Ponder on the field quickly to show that they drafted him WAY to high.

    ‘Zona should just get Leinart back and then go for Luck in ’12 cause they’ll likely have the first pick next year regardless of the QB.

  30. vikescry1 says: May 5, 2011 5:50 PM

    don’t worry AZ favre just got an itch…. oh nevermind it was crabs…

  31. 3yardsndust says: May 5, 2011 5:52 PM

    Time to retire, McNabb. Your skills are gone, but hopefully your money isn’t. Walk away with some dignity. Invest your money wisely. Spend time raising money for charity and being a force for good in the world. Be the example.

  32. pigeonpea says: May 5, 2011 5:53 PM

    Of course he’s not going to Arizona, the BiQueens have the market cornered on overrated, over-the-hill quarterbacks!

  33. seabreezes51 says: May 5, 2011 6:13 PM

    The groundskeeper told the owner that the cost of fixing divots would skyrocket

  34. fatfreddystubbs says: May 5, 2011 6:18 PM

    “Lets say it together: Eagles fans were right.”
    ————————————————–

    Let’s also say it together: Donovan won as many playoff games last year as the Eagles did.

    Yeah, now that Donovan’s gone, Eagles fans don’t have to worry about being in the last minute of a playoff game, having no timeouts and seeing the QB panic and throw a bad interception…..Oh wait

    Can you expand on what being an African American QB would have ANYTHING to do at all with mentoring Cam Newton??

  36. peelmybatwings says: May 5, 2011 6:29 PM

    How come everyone trashed Eagles fans when McNabb was traded, even though Andy Reid traded him, not the fans? Everyone blamed the fans, but no one questioned Reid. Well, it doesn’t matter anyway because we told everyone it was time to part ways and we were right, but you won’t hear anyone admit that. I don’t know who will want him now, but remember, you don’t just get 5, you get all the excuses that come with him as well!!

  37. soulman45 says: May 5, 2011 6:54 PM

    The Cardinals are playing for the first pick.

  38. moochzilla says: May 5, 2011 7:04 PM

    “Arguably the most successful Africian-American QB of all-time”

    Now that’s an excellent subject for debate.

    I’d have to say Moon, who put up epic numbers (CFL and NFL) and is in the HOF (reflecting his work in both leagues).

    In terms of revolutionizing the game, I’d take Cunningham and then Vick.

    In terms of establishing that an AA QB can be a champion, I’d take Doug Williams.

    In terms of marketability, Vick.

    Philadelphia has had more black QB’s than anyone else from what I can recall. Cunningham. McPherson. Peete. McNabb. Vick. Even Jeff Blake got in on the action!

  39. bobbyhoying says: May 5, 2011 7:16 PM

    McNabb is ready for the broadcast booth. He’s probably better than 75% of the current crop who announce games.

  40. moochzilla says: May 5, 2011 7:32 PM

    PS – I never thought of McNabb as a “black QB”, and he didn’t either.

    His game was well-rounded, he wasn’t as reliant on his mobility as most players who get that tag.

    In addition, I think here in Philly we stopped thinking about QB’s as being black or white around 1990.

  41. drstrangelust says: May 5, 2011 7:45 PM

    Retarded Viking will end up signing this guy…Favre: The Sequel!

  42. laeaglefan says: May 5, 2011 7:48 PM

    McNabb says he’ll only go to Cincinnati if T.O. resigns there to be his #1 receiver.

  43. erocknrolla says: May 5, 2011 8:05 PM

    Last time the cardinals brought in an aging washed up stop gap qb they went to the super bowl.

    Should have skipped Kurt Warner too i suppose.

    Wow. I thought nothing could be more annoying than all those utterly stupid jokes you always make on this site.

    I was wrong. Turns out it’s even more annoying – in a pathetic sort of way – when you actually try to talk football.

    Stick to the dim-witted jokes from now on.

  45. MichaelEdits says: May 5, 2011 10:36 PM

    The least aggressive move would be to sign Brett Favre.

  46. ernestbynershands says: May 5, 2011 11:50 PM

    McNabb?!? What a scrub! He hasn’t done diddley. I’m glad we drafted Couch!

  47. carnagekong says: May 6, 2011 6:06 AM

    Wherever he goes, expect a PETA protest against the killing of innocent worms.

  48. patsandsox says: May 6, 2011 4:04 PM

    What about Orton? I think he is a good passer/ leader who gets no respect.

    I think the Broncos are dumb if he is not their starter this year but it seems he is available
