Donovan McNabb: “When you’re 0-2, there’s no need to panic”

Dallas Cowboys v Minnesota Vikings Getty Images

The Minnesota Vikings have not played well this year, and new quarterback Donovan McNabb has not played well. But McNabb would like to remind everyone that the Vikings still have 14 games to right the ship.

“When you’re 0-2, there’s no need to panic,” McNabb said.

Instead, McNabb said, he and some of the other veterans called the team together to talk about what needs to be done.

“But there’s a sense of urgency that has to take place,” McNabb said. “I think it was the time [for a team meeting]. It was one that needed to be addressed. Then we’ll see how it goes from there.”

McNabb said that in addressing the younger players, he didn’t exempt himself from those who need to improve if the Vikings are going to turn things around.

“If you’re going to speak, you have to be critical of yourself as well,” McNabb said. “There are a lot of things we need to clean up as a team and I’ll clean up myself. But everyone isn’t sitting there pointing fingers. This isn’t the time to be pointing fingers. I don’t believe in that anyway.”

If the Vikings drop to 0-3 when the Lions come to town on Sunday, a lot of people will be pointing fingers at McNabb.

    0-2 teams have made the playoffs only about 12% of the time since 1990. Maybe it’s not time to PANIC, but there’s definitely damn good reason to be concerned if you’re a Vikes fan.

    McNabb is washed up.

  3. jnks10 says: Sep 21, 2011 2:09 PM

    Remember when every single sports personality on tv bashed philadelphia for wanted this man gone? How’s that saying go……. WE TOLD YOU SO!

  4. nattyboh says: Sep 21, 2011 2:10 PM

    When you’re 0-2 there is no need to panic…except when your QB is Donovan McNabb.

  5. breezy413 says: Sep 21, 2011 2:10 PM

    Donovan McNothing, cut it out it does mean something when you blowing leads and losing when you shouldve one. You just wish you were still in Philly with all the new talent. Work on the shoelace passes smh.

  6. ocho says: Sep 21, 2011 2:12 PM

    The only teams that dont need to panic are those teams that have the Vikings on their schedule.

  7. robigd says: Sep 21, 2011 2:12 PM

    Didn’t the Broncos start 6-0 a couple years ago and miss the playoffs?

    He is right.

  8. fordman84 says: Sep 21, 2011 2:14 PM

    Did McNabb recommend the young WRs grow hands out of their ankles so they would have a chance to catch his passes?

  9. scoops1 says: Sep 21, 2011 2:14 PM

    Keep eating your Soup McNabb…

  10. edenprairieballer says: Sep 21, 2011 2:15 PM

    This is a huge relief. After watching my Vikings give away two games I was panicking but not anymore now that McNabb has reassured me that it’s too early to panic.

  11. vikesfansteve says: Sep 21, 2011 2:15 PM

    McFat started 0-2 with Philly & made the NFC Championship game. Pats, Cowboys, Giants have all won the Super Bowl starting 0-2. The Vikings made the playoffs a couple years ago starting 0-2. He’s right. The Vikings get Kevin Williams back on D. The O is now in its 3rd week together. The Vikings are going to bounce back. He’s right.

  12. rh44 says: Sep 21, 2011 2:15 PM

    Only McNabb can say this because he went to an NFC Championship game after going 0-2. It’s only happened a handful of times ever, but he’s one of them.

  13. purpleman527 says: Sep 21, 2011 2:15 PM

    Panicking never solves anything. But McNabb and the players better be ready. And where most of the blame goes, the coaches, they better be ready to adjust at halftime.

    Personally, I want to see Ponder play, and McNabb sent back to his crib in Syracuse, Chicago, Philly or wherever he calls his home.

  14. netherscourge says: Sep 21, 2011 2:16 PM

    If I was a Viking fan, I’d be panicking that my QB is NOT panicking.

  15. CKL says: Sep 21, 2011 2:16 PM

    He doesn’t believe in pointing fingers????

    I hear some Eagles fans laughing all the way from here and I’m 90 miles from the PA border.

    Ahhhh DMac, you are the gift that keeps on giving. A passive aggressive guru.

  16. birdsnooper2 says: Sep 21, 2011 2:17 PM

    No panic. Top 5 pick!

    Woo-hooo!

  17. 7thlombardiontheway says: Sep 21, 2011 2:17 PM

    The Steeler Nation’s dominance in this league is unmatched (6). This is unfair to you and we understand this. That is why we are making the neccessary changes to make it work for everyone. After we win our seventh Lombardi this year we will start our own league. You get to keep your pansy league while we start a real football league for the game as it was made.

    This league will consist of the Steelers organization (this means the superior facets listed above) ONLY. We will establish rules from the ground up. These rules will stick to the foundations the game was based on. 112 members of the NFL may enter this league after deemed “pure”. We’ll introduce our own draft system that will occur every year (details still need arrangement). The orginal Steelers team (in all it’s glory) will be divided into eight teams for the first season. The system is subject to change after every football year.

    Everyone prepare for the SFL

    “When you’re down 24-21…with 2 minutes left…and no timeouts…in the Super Bowl…there’s no need to panic.” – D. McNabb

  20. ajknox88 says: Sep 21, 2011 2:19 PM

    That’s why you’re going to be 0-3

  21. kamdaryda says: Sep 21, 2011 2:19 PM

    Thats true when your QB is Manning, Brees, Brady, or Grossman ;) but when your name is McNabb you need to panic.

    Hail Em Up!!!

  22. toddm6d says: Sep 21, 2011 2:20 PM

    McNabb is caught in a Webb of being too old and having not much left in the tank when the second half rolls around. I Ponder its about time for a change.

  23. anonimocontraditorio says: Sep 21, 2011 2:20 PM

  24. shaggytoodle says: Sep 21, 2011 2:21 PM

    No need to panic especially when your going to win 7 games or less they are still right on pace.

    I think its time see what Ponder can do. Find out if hes got game, IF the Vikings do get the first pick (all though the Colts probably will) they need to find out if they can take Luck.

    Does anyone know if a team has used consecutive 1st rounders on rookie QBs?

  25. davidgq says: Sep 21, 2011 2:22 PM

    They should panic if McNabb continues to play like this. It’s the QB !!!!!

    Reid is a genius for trading him. Mike is smart for cutting the loss early. It’s all on the Vikings now. I bet we will see Ponder this season.

  26. mdd913 says: Sep 21, 2011 2:22 PM

    Words can’t describe how great it feels to watch this pathetic organization falling apart at the seams.

  27. citizenstrange says: Sep 21, 2011 2:25 PM

    After two games the Lions look like World Beaters and the Packers look very solid at at best the Vikings seem to be fighting for the last Wild Card against Falcons/Saints/Bucs.

    Unless the Lions are a mirage I think the Vikes won’t make the playoffs.

  28. shane1511 says: Sep 21, 2011 2:27 PM

    Next week McNabb will say “When you are 0-3, there’s no need to worry about Christian Ponder.”

  29. damnyoulinelliot says: Sep 21, 2011 2:27 PM

    Mr. “I didn’t know it could end in a tie” McNabb should know better than to speak up right now.

  30. rodgerthat says: Sep 21, 2011 2:27 PM

    Based on how you got to 0-2 is plenty of reason to panic. It sure seems like you are just in this thing for the paycheck the last several years Donny. The bad news is that i have the vikes as the leading contender for the “luck” sweepstakes. And that, as a Packer fan, may be reason to panic !

    ____________

    That is an overrated stat. The reason only about 1 of 8 0-2 teams makes the playoffs is because 0-2 teams tend to be bad teams. If you have a good team and you’re 0-2, there’s plenty of time to turn the season around. If you have a bad team and you’re 0-2, it doesn’t matter because you’re bad. Personally, I don’t think the Vikings have a good team or a bad team. It’s a mediocre team that will be about 8-8 because it’s a transition year. As long as they improve every week and Christian Ponder looks pretty good when he starts getting in games, I’ll be happy. If the team quits because they aren’t winning and the season turns into a debacle, I won’t be happy. I’ll be happy in April when we draft a rock star left tackle, though.

  33. rpiotr01 says: Sep 21, 2011 2:30 PM

    This isn’t meant as a smug comment, but if you’re a Viking fan why panic at all? I mean, this year’s team wasn’t going anywhere to begin with. Weak at QB, DL going through a major transitional period and in need of fresh blood, lost one of your biggest offensive threats in Sidney Rice. What did you expect? I’m sure the GM has to know what the deal is too. There’s a lot of dead wood to be trimmed off that team so it’s going to take them a year or two at least.

    For fans, enjoy the games, enjoy watching your young players develop and let that be the end of it.

  34. pacash80 says: Sep 21, 2011 2:30 PM

    The Eagles started 0-2 in 2003. They ended up 12-4 and made the playoffs. I’m not saying the Vikings will do the same, but it’s still an interesting piece of information.

  35. firethorn1001 says: Sep 21, 2011 2:31 PM

    McNabb says he doesn’t believe in pointing fings…ha ha I almost fell out of my chair laughing…that is all that guy ever does is point fingers at other people when things don’t go right for him….everything that has ever gone wrong for McNabb is someone else’s fault. The guy is still complaining about a handful of Eagles fans, who wanted to see the team draft Ricky Williams, booing him on draft day…what was that, about 13 years ago? McNabb is a joke. For me, whatever skill he had is obscured by his embarrassing insecurity.

  40. alldayvikings says: Sep 21, 2011 2:35 PM

    Thanks Mcnabb!! Makes me feel better with you as my QB. Just shut up and give the ball to Adrian “ALL DAY” Peterson!!!

  41. jaggedmark says: Sep 21, 2011 2:36 PM

    When you’re 0-2 with Suh coming to town, it’s time to panic.

  42. mrplow3 says: Sep 21, 2011 2:38 PM

    How Mcnabb is still a starting QB in this league blows my mind. He hasn’t even showed flashed of being good in about two years.

    And unlike other guys who recover slowly from injuries you can make excuses for, Mcnabb is just flat out terrible at this point.

  43. schemefactory says: Sep 21, 2011 2:39 PM

    yeah, the time to panic was a few years ago when they started this streak of going after aging qb’s to try to take them to the promised land. why are the vikings purple? they’ve been choking for 40 years.

  44. stockdogdca says: Sep 21, 2011 2:39 PM

    Washed Up ??? Do you think any qb producing only 39 yards in passing is calling his own plays ?? Look at the OC not McNabb, when all the man’s doing is handing the ball off ! If anything, McNabb needs to develope a set of “stones” and tell them he needs to throw the rock !!! At the very least allow for a balanced attack as Percy needs about 10 more attempts per game thrown his way. Hell, even if McNabb is considered old , he can STILL chuck it 10-15 yards to Percy and let him do the rest. Yeah, can you see a healthy Peyton Manning with an OC calling all the plays ?? Would we be calling Peyton washed up for producing low numbers?? Geez, the brain is a terrible thing to waste………….

    I believe that means that you want a league where you play with yourself….makes sense.
    Or you could split the team in 2 I guess. One will have games at the prison, the other at the old folks home.

    mdd913–“Words can’t describe how great it feels to watch this pathetic organization falling apart at the seams.”–A little over the top, don’t you think? The media vultures may be circling over Winter Park but it’s not like Goodell will contract the team just because it had a losing season. If that were the case, the Lions would have folded years ago.

  47. shaggytoodle says: Sep 21, 2011 2:40 PM

    Its when I throw for less that 40 yards is when its time to start panicking.

  48. southbeachtalent says: Sep 21, 2011 2:40 PM

    Considering your rants are the equivalent of a 2nd grade kid screaming, “It’s my ball, so get your own!”, I highly encourage you to follow up on your plan. Go take your ball and play by yourself; that way, the rest of us can have fun on our own.

  61. sikoix says: Sep 21, 2011 2:56 PM

    This is a non-story. While I’m concerned as a Viking fan, our expectations were so low heading into the season that the fact we could easily have been 2-0 is almost promising.

    All kinds of predictions quickly turn into comedy this time of year. Last week the Ravens were going to Superbowl. The week before that Cam Newton was JaMarcus Russel. Heck, Newton is now headed to Canton. And how many teams have a great first quarter season then disappear? Or vice versa. I’m sure Lions fans remember Wayne Fontes. I know Viking fans should remember some great 5-1 or 6-0 starts that didn’t work out. We see these same patterns year after year yet the majority seems to forget all about them.

    That said, I don’t plan on “panic” setting in any time soon. Looking forward to a competitive game against the Lions win or lose.

    Its also like saying McNabb was the sole reason we got there, instead of saying we got there in SPITE of his lack of good playing under pressure. Just remember, one of those 5 it wasn’t McNabb. It was AJ Feeley who won 7 or 8 in a row. How many of McNabb’s “Wins” were 5 yard check downs or screens to B.West that wen 65 yards to the house? Or David Akers making a clutch 48 yard FG after McNabb threw at the receivers feet inside the 30.

    Doesn’t it infuriate you when you see your coach make a decision YOU KNOW is wrong in your living room, beer in hand, yet they get paid millions to know and they obviously ain’t gettin’ it?

    All this talk about starting 0-2 and making the playoffs. 1. It dosn’t happen often. 2. It might have happened to mcnabb in the past but that was before he was washed up and worthless. 3. Might as well sign up for the suck for luck sweepstakes!

    Michael David Smith writes that the Vikings haven’t played well this year. If he had watched the games, he’d know that they haven’t CLOSED games well. They gave away leads of 10 and 17 points – to get those leads they had to play well. It isn’t like they’re out there getting their ass kicked from start to finish. It’s your usual lazy reporting style, Mike. Get your head in the game.

  76. sullijo1 says: Sep 21, 2011 3:15 PM

    They do play the Chiefs in a couple weeks….so there’s a win.

  77. richm2256 says: Sep 21, 2011 3:16 PM

    McNabb said that in addressing the younger players, he didn’t exempt himself from those who need to improve if the Vikings are going to turn things around.
    ——————————————————–

    Really?

    How big of him.

    Especially considering that in two games, he’s thrown for 267 yards, what Tom Brady does in a HALF, minus the 56% completion ratio, and the 1TD.

    I guess he’s waiting to panic until the Chiefs beat them?

    Typical McNabb. Too laid back for his own good. This is the time for Donovan to show some fire, and a sense of urgency. The Vikings season and his career as a starter is on the line.

    The Steeler Nation’s dominance in this league is unmatched (6). This is unfair to you and we understand this. That is why we are making the neccessary changes to make it work for everyone. After we win our seventh Lombardi this year we will start our own league. You get to keep your pansy league while we start a real football league for the game as it was made.

    This league will consist of the Steelers organization (this means the superior facets listed above) ONLY. We will establish rules from the ground up. These rules will stick to the foundations the game was based on. 112 members of the NFL may enter this league after deemed “pure”. We’ll introduce our own draft system that will occur every year (details still need arrangement). The orginal Steelers team (in all it’s glory) will be divided into eight teams for the first season. The system is subject to change after every football year.

    Everyone prepare for the SFL

  86. turgidsen says: Sep 21, 2011 3:56 PM

    McNabb knows all about not panicking .He couldn’t even rush to the line of scrimmage during two minute drill against the Lions last year. Panic? why Panic? He could care less after Andy shipped him away.

  87. bcjim says: Sep 21, 2011 4:05 PM

    That’s right because so many mediocre or bad teams have never missed the playoffs by only 1 game.

    McNabb is caught in a Webb of being too old and having not much left in the tank when the second half rolls around. I Ponder its about time for a change. This team is Favre too talented to give up now.

    Fixed

  93. omnipresentfan says: Sep 21, 2011 4:33 PM

    Depends on who your QB is McNabb. In other words, if your QB is struggling to throw for over 40 yards in a game, you have no prayer

  94. trollhammer20 says: Sep 21, 2011 4:51 PM

    How about being 0-2 and having blown leads in both games?

    How about being 0-2 and having a young, hungry, and rapidly-improving division rival coming to your stadium?

    When you are 0-3 with a home division loss, and looking up at the Packers, Lions, and Bears….is it time to panic then?

    I think we’re going to find out.

  95. descendency says: Sep 21, 2011 4:57 PM

    McNabb’s right. He knows he has no future with the organization, so it is someone else’s problem that the team he is leading is 0-2, not his.

    That’s totally what being a team leader is about.

    Cut the washed up loser.

    However, if you have Donovan McNabb as your Quarterback in 2011, you do need to panic.

  98. jimmylions says: Sep 21, 2011 5:05 PM

    I haven’t been paying close attention to the Vikings, but the rumor is they haven’t been doing a lot with Adrian Peterson or Percy Harvin this season. Peterson has a little over 200 yds rushing and a couple of TDs (which is decent), but Harvin has less than 100 yards receiving.
    (which doth not make a star receiver).

    Considering those are their two biggest weapons, it’s no shock that they are 0-2. As for our 2-0 record, the Bucs and the Chiefs pretty much self-destructed. We still have a ways to go on both sides of the ball.

    The game this weekend will be a good test for the Lions, but it’s nice to be favored going into the Metrodome.

    ______________________________________________________________

    Man football fans are weird. I guarantee you 99.9% of you people have not watched 1 Viking game this season–yet feel the need to comment. Struggling to throw for over 40 yds a game? The first game he only thre for 39 yds but that was on ONLY 15 attempts. 40 plays run? It was a weird game. Musgrave took that Ground & pound short throw over to the Vikings (Previously here with short throw Matt Ryan) The 2nd game he had a pretty good game. I mean the dudes #1 receiver is Michael Jenkins! Us Falcon fans know that’s a disaster!

    Stop being Sheep and going off what the next man says! Watch with your own eyes…

    (Lions up next).

  102. jkb0162 says: Sep 21, 2011 5:24 PM

    I have always liked McNabb and really pulled for him to prove his doubters wrong. However, he should know better than to make comments like this because there is such vitriol against him. What was he thinking!?

  104. champsof3233 says: Sep 21, 2011 5:41 PM

    A sense of urgency Donovan?

    Oh, do you mean like, say, just for example the last 2 minutes of a Super Bowl against the Patriots when you and your entire offense that you were supposed to be “leading” play like it was the third preaseason game?

    Is that the kind of “sense of urgency” you feel the team needs?

    golly, I can’t imagine why 2 teams have given up on you in 2 years (soon to be 3 in 3 years).

  105. Carl Gerbschmidt says: Sep 21, 2011 5:43 PM

    Instead, McNabb said, he and some of the other veterans called the team together to talk about what needs to be done.

  108. pack13queens0 says: Sep 21, 2011 6:24 PM

    When you’re 0-2, you’re not going to the playoffs. The circumstances have changed since 2008 when they also started 0-2. The NFC North in 2011 is much better than the NFC North of 2008. Sorry Viking fans, but your team blew their whole season losing both games. 14 more games & this team packs the Mayflower trucks for LA & the NFL never returns to Minnesota.

  109. array9 says: Sep 21, 2011 7:42 PM

    The problem with most of the people on boards like this is that they don’t watch the game. Looking at stats don’t give you a perspective of the game.

    If anyone blames McNabb for the Vikings being 0-2, then you obviously don’t know the game of football.
