Coaches have identified some mechanical issues with Donovan McNabb they hope to get corrected. McNabb doesn’t seem overly interested. He was asked if he saw anything on tape he needs to change.
“No,” McNabb said via Tom Pelissero of espn1500.cm. “I think the thing about it, just when you’re critical of yourself and your play, you just look at your reads, you look at how fast you can get the ball out. I think obviously footwork and things like that, but that’s not just my position — that’s from everyone.
“As a quarterback, when you’re watching yourself, you’re going through everything. It’s not just mechanics. It’s ball placement, it’s ‘is it the right read,’ things like that.”
Pelissero charted 10 uncatchable passes from McNabb last week. Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said that the staff wants McNabb to work on his release point, taking the right drops, and cleaning up his footwork.
“Some throws you just miss,” McNabb explain.
You get the sense that McNabb often only trusts McNabb to fix what’s been going wrong.
