McNabb’s opinion of himself is likely keeping him from getting a job

tumblr_l1joqhxvGM1qa1ape-1 Getty Images

So why isn’t one of the best quarterbacks of the past generation employed?

It’s a great question, given that there are plenty of bad quarterbacks in the NFL — and not nearly enough good ones to fill up every depth chart.

As we see it, Donovan McNabb’s stubborn belief that he remains an elite talent is keeping him from getting a job.  If he were ready to embrace the seven-figure clipboard phase of his career, McNabb surely would be employed as a backup, somewhere.  But he continues to regard himself as a guy who deserves a starting job, as confirmed by his recent remarks regarding the status of his career.

McNabb says he has “unfinished business,” and that he is working to get to back to an “elite level.”  That doesn’t sound like a guy who is willing to embrace the role of an understudy and/or veteran mentor to a young starter.

Still, McNabb could eventually get an opportunity.  If a team experiences a rash of injuries and finds itself looking for a Vinny-Testaverde-at-age-43 warm body, McNabb’s phone will ring.  But it would be ringing right now if he were willing to be something other than the unquestioned starting quarterback.

    Ahh, I don’t think that’s the problem.

  2. jenniferxxx says: May 5, 2012 5:35 PM

    McNabb probably isn’t looking for backup QB money. That’s the real problem. He won’t work for the $1-2 million the position pays.

  3. vbe2 says: May 5, 2012 5:37 PM

    He’s done, was never an “elite” QB and was never “one of the best quarterbacks of the past generation”. A good QB at times, never one of the “best”.

  4. tommyf15 says: May 5, 2012 5:37 PM

    What’s he supposed to say?

  5. franklamar17 says: May 5, 2012 5:39 PM

    He is better than half the nfl qbs

  6. philyeagles5 says: May 5, 2012 5:42 PM

    im gonna go with a lack of skill is why he has no job.

    A) Hes a jerk

    B) Hes a jerk

    C) Hes not one of the best quarterbacks of his generation.

  8. goredskins11 says: May 5, 2012 5:43 PM

    I wish he would change his attitude. I really respected him as a QB and person when he was in Philly. I was even excited to see him get a chance at leading my beloved Redskins. But, I feel out with him when he was asked to wear the plays on an arm band and refused, as if it was beneath him. If I was being paid that much money to be the face of the franchise, I would do pretty much whatever the coach asked. Part of me hopes he finds something that works out for him, but I feel he will, indeed, have to change his attitude in order to have a chance at continuing his career.

  9. mrplow3 says: May 5, 2012 5:44 PM

    Meanwhile, Daunte Culpepper who is a much better qb than Mcnabb at this point in their careers who will also take vet minimum just for a chance to earn a back up job can’t get a call either.

    Mcnabb’s got a long, long wait ahead.

  10. brenenostler says: May 5, 2012 5:44 PM

    Go ahead and criticize me if you want, but I think he would be good in Cleveland. He had the best years of his career when he ran Chilly’s offense.

  11. gmen4life33 says: May 5, 2012 5:51 PM

    Soo, according to PFT, McNabb shouldnt say he is trying to get better, or that he feels like he can still play but instead say:

    “im not training, im ready to be lazy and hold a clipboard. I probably can’t even start if a team asked me.”?

  12. letmesetyoustraight says: May 5, 2012 5:54 PM

    Probably because he was not one of the best QB’s of the past generation.

  13. thingamajig says: May 5, 2012 5:55 PM

    His opinion means nothing but his play the last two years says it all.

  14. skinstidecubsfan says: May 5, 2012 5:57 PM

    Thr problem is that he just can’t play at a well enough level anymore to win more than lose.he should retire,and shut up if he wants to get into the HOF.nobody will vote him in w if he keeps showing the arrogance he has the last year!

  15. bucks12965 says: May 5, 2012 6:04 PM

    Mentor? How would he mentor someone? Show them how not to play? Show them how to be passive-aggressive and 2 faced?

  16. dragonfly99 says: May 5, 2012 6:06 PM

    I think the main problem is many people don’t share your opinion that he is one of the best quarterbacks of the past generation. Many people feel he was an average quarterback who benefitted by playing in a good system, and his average skills have deteriorated over the last few years.

  17. qdog112 says: May 5, 2012 6:08 PM

    That’s crazy and they say your spot on a roster is all about skill and talent? Now they say it’s about one guy who thinks he’s better than he is? NEWS FLASH: Every guy out there thinks he’s better than he actually is. That’s how they got to be in the NFL. If you don’t believe it – who will?

  18. chazzmon says: May 5, 2012 6:09 PM

    Done-a-van. As in finished. I got tired of seeing him bounce balls 5 yards in front of his receivers.

  19. mjkelly77 says: May 5, 2012 6:19 PM

    McNabb is delusional. I can hear him now: “I read in PFT that I’m one of the ‘best quarterbacks of the past generation’.”

  20. journeyfan99 says: May 5, 2012 6:20 PM

    The “opinion of himself” is one that was fostered by the national media and he certainly is not willing to change his mind about it. What has happened in the last 2 years (really 3-4) has been the progressive decline of a player whose legs aren’t what they used to be. He’s always been a skipper in the pocket, bouncing on his toes, and then throwing a ball high, low, wide, behind… he hasn’t been “elite” since 2004. Is that because he finally had an elite receiver who knows, but he hasn’t been in that realm of quarterbacks for awhile.

  21. nomoreseasontix says: May 5, 2012 6:34 PM

    Not a great QB and never was.
    He got badly exposed when he left the comfort of Andy Reid’s system.
    He’s done, unless a team wants to dump a million on a lazy QB to throw at the receivers’ feet…

  22. tfbuckfutter says: May 5, 2012 6:35 PM

    What the hell?

    Donovan’s attitude is keeping him from getting a job, but you regularly sided with Culpepper, who was considerably worse, saying he should have been starting after failing badly with the Vikings (even BEFORE his injury), Dolphins, Raiders and Lions?

    Culpepper posted 5 consecutive seasons of below average QB Ratings, something McNabb has only done the past 2 (and last year he was very close).

    Not that I think Donovan is still a good QB, mind you….I’m just saying it’s a goofy double standard.

  23. bangitfootball says: May 5, 2012 6:38 PM

    Last time I saw McNabb he didnt have the endurance to run his team down the field more than 30 yards without running out of gas. He looked like the Michelen Tire Man in pads. Id say that is a major reason along with lack of any skill at this point.

  24. thegonz13 says: May 5, 2012 6:40 PM

    His overly inflated opinion of himself is just part of the problem. He’s overweight, inaccurate, slow-footed… I could go on.

  25. mklax15 says: May 5, 2012 6:54 PM

    Mcnabb is done. He was horrible in Washington snf even if he was 30 years old I wouldn’t take him.

  26. redhanded48 says: May 5, 2012 6:56 PM

    So why isn’t one of the best quarterbacks of the past generation employed?
    ____________________________________

    Honestly, is that your opinion of him? Well, if it is then it will be a sad day when he (McNabb) gets inducted into the HOF. When it took Art Monk 11 years to get in and some other qualified players are still not inducted.
    As a Skins fan and watching McNabb for all those years I can say he strung some good years together. Collectively with their Defense they were beasts at times. I can honestly say that Andy Reid is a magician with QB’s kinda of like John Fox was last year with Tebow. I wish McNabb well, he would be better off accepting where he is and taking a job in the NFL Network, I would rather listen to him then Michael Irvin or Deion Sanders…even better replace Chris Collingsworth on NBC for McNabb

  27. deathtoromo says: May 5, 2012 6:56 PM

    Its generally not a good thing when a Quarterback has a bigger belly than his Center. I hope he goes away soon or T.O. Kicks his ass … Or both.

    McNabb was an overachiever, but he wasn’t one of the best quarterbacks of this generation.

  30. skolvikesskol says: May 5, 2012 7:10 PM

    Hes done now… But i never understood y people dont think he was elite… He was amazing for 5+yrs… He went 5 nfc champ gamea WITH NO WRS!!!! I repeat, the talent, (other than westbrook) was AWEFUL!!!! And what have the eagles done without him?…. NOTHING!!!!

  31. ytownie says: May 5, 2012 7:16 PM

    And, everyone was on Andy Reid when he traded him to the Redskins no less. Who looks like the smart one now?

  32. bigbluenationdb says: May 5, 2012 7:23 PM

    McNabb was one of the most overrated QBs of the past 15 years. He benefited from playing in a terrible NFC early in his career. He came up small in the biggest games. Philly was dominated on defense early in his career.

    Last but not least is Westbrook carried that offense. How many screen passes did that guy turn into big plays.

  33. gibbskins9 says: May 5, 2012 7:26 PM

    McSucks is the problem

  34. fullbagg says: May 5, 2012 7:27 PM

    I apprenticed under a journeyman for 7 years. He has been going to Eagle home games for 20 years from DC. He has ALWAYS told me McNabb is not that good.

    Take away all the HB Screens to Westbrook, how good was he?? You can fill in the blank.

    The Shannys are Blowhards, but this guy was on pace to break his personal season yardage record with the Skins. That’s a fact!!

    The Vikes cut him??

    So! Everyone else is wrong? He is elite?? He had Adrian Peterson? 3-13? Elite? Sounds like Rex Grossman. Maybe almost as good as Rex….

    He had

  35. hedleykow says: May 5, 2012 7:37 PM

    McNabb is the captain of his own ship in a slightly different way than many of his critics are captains of their own existence (did you say drop fries?).

  38. 6thsense79 says: May 5, 2012 7:45 PM

    McNabb was most certaintly an elite QB during his time. He compiled a 92-49-1 record in Philly. he passed 32873 yards 216tds 100int. In NFL history he ranks 23rd in passing rating, 22nd passing tds, 17th in passing yards. All this accomplished without the services of a pro bowl receiver for most of his career. It’s one thing to dislike a player but to try and devalue his career is a little low.

  39. expertop says: May 5, 2012 7:46 PM

    His ongoing struggles with the forward pass may be part of the problem.

  40. joebuckiscreepy says: May 5, 2012 7:46 PM

    i appreciate all the wins he gave the eagles over the years, but he was more of a choker than a winner. the last straw was his air-guitar charade before he went out and played hilariously bad against the cowboys.

    he could have left himself a much better legacy in philadelphia and the nfl if he didn’t have the attitude that he has…i’m pretty sure he’ll retire before he takes less than $5 million-per-year on a 2 year deal because he thinks he’s still worth that much…

  41. thegreatestofalltimes says: May 5, 2012 7:47 PM

    McNabb as a mentor to a young QB:

    “I’m from the future! And in the future, the receivers have hands on their feet. Everyone thinks I’m short-arming these passes, but I’m just too ahead of my time.”

  42. daknight93 says: May 5, 2012 7:48 PM

    he would be a good relief backup quarterback until starter becomes healthy again…other than that, his best days are behind him and he should let it go and retire.

  43. mancave001 says: May 5, 2012 7:51 PM

    His personality, insecurity and inexcusable lack of knowledge of the rules aside, I think the term “one of the best of the past generation” is at least debatable. At his peak, he was a near-elite QB. He was *definitely* in the top 5 for several years (2003 and 2004 come to mind).

    The problem is that we’re not in the PAST generation. McNabb’s style of play and skill set was very athletic as opposed to cerebral. Once his physical skills started leaving him, he started to suck. He was never the same after the knee injury in 2006. He spent most of 2007 recovering, and was showing signs of slowing down and being inconsistent in 2008 (the overtime debacle, getting benched in Baltimore).

    In short, regardless of the “one of the best” comment, I agree fully with the article. McNabb’s attitude is the issue. He could be a competent or even excellent backup. But this is McNutts we’re talking about…the most insecure QB…perhaps ever.

  44. letmesetyoustraight says: May 5, 2012 8:07 PM

    After reading most of the comments, it seems everybody is saying Rush Limbaugh was right about McNabb. :-)

  45. mklax15 says: May 5, 2012 8:14 PM

    Mcnabb was a on a good eagles team his whole career and couldnt win the big game. He thought he was better than he actually was, not saying he was terrible but I don’t think he should be a HOF qb. The HOF is getting out of control now. I feel like people are getting inducted in with less and less accomplishments. Next thing you know there gonna want tebow in the HOF

  46. acdc84 says: May 5, 2012 8:16 PM

    As a Packer fan, I’d feel more comfortable with McNabb coming into a game than Graham Harrell.

  47. bigbluenationdb says: May 5, 2012 8:21 PM

    @6thsense79 b he played in the west coast offense and his numbers for a QB that played in that style offense is terrible. Most his yardage is attributed to Westbrook turning screen passes into big plays.

    McNabb sucked at throwing the ball more then 10 yards.

  48. jeffinstlouis says: May 5, 2012 8:27 PM

    He wont be in the HOF. 5 NFC championship games (on the strength of their defense) 1 super bowl and no rings. Below 60% completion percentage and 6.9 Y/A. Compare that to someone like Peyton Manning (65% completion and 7.6 Y/A) or Kurt Warner (65% completion and 7.9 Y/A). McNabb was a good quarterback, but not a great one.

  49. bobnelsonjr says: May 5, 2012 8:29 PM

    If he can’t make it with a dog dung team like the viklings, he can’t make it in the NFL.

  50. mullman7675 says: May 5, 2012 8:30 PM

    He will acquiesce and accept the clipboard in due time. McNabb will realize, soon enough, that holding the clipboard is the best job for an aging/ sub par quarterback. Assuming the starter never gets hurt and he is holding pom-poms, I would think it hard to tell the difference between the #2 QB and the talented ladies known as cheerleaders.

  51. wreckedems says: May 5, 2012 8:33 PM

    Cassel, Quinn and Stanzi are my qb’s and I’m still not interested in Mcnabb

  52. rajbais says: May 5, 2012 8:42 PM

    I think it is more of a general attitude problem. He has become a fair-weather QB – when things are great he puts in some effort, when they start to falter, he checks out. Of course, in his mind this doesn’t happen and he is the greatest QB of the past 20 years.

  58. zatoichi7 says: May 5, 2012 9:22 PM

    mcnabb’s peers voted him one of the top 100 players last year (or at least so says the nfl network). there was a time when he was one of the top qb’s in the game. and before you say he wasn’t, he did go to 6 pro bowls. how many qb’s can say that? but.. he lost his job to rex grossman and christian ponder in back to back years. he’s done. t.o is the player deserving of a shot, if you’re looking at talent alone. at least he was very productive the last year he played.

  59. exhelodrvr says: May 5, 2012 9:23 PM

    Harrell has not shown much in any of the pre-season games he has played in, but I would still take him over McNabb if only because he is still young and with a good QB-developing team, so that might one day change. I can’t see McNabb ever changing his ways because he doesn’t think he needs to.

Now McNabb is at the end of a tremendous career you all come out of your decade long hiding to dance on his career grave in a vain effort to justify your wrongheaded prejudgment of McNabb. You all were wrong then and you’re wrong now.

    OK you got me. I don’t know HOW I put him on the list. But I think you get the point. McNabb, at this point in his “career” is not good. And to say that he is better than half of the QBs in the league is an even bigger mistake than I made with the list.

  73. nite2al says: May 6, 2012 4:34 AM

    You guys who are so negative about McNabb are pathetic. You would not have these same comments we were in the midst of his 5 NFC championship run. Also, this elite QB crap really bugs me. What is elite QB anyway? When McNabb was in his prime, hardly any of you would have taken Brees or E. Manning over him at that point in time. How many times has he beaten Manning head to head? A couple of subpar years on different teams has wiped away this guy’s successful career…sad. Sick of his mouth? Name the last NFL quarterback who said “No, I’m not an elite QB”.

  74. kokomike says: May 6, 2012 5:34 AM

    With the Redskins, he was overweight and slow. His passes were mostly off target, usually under thrown. He had a bad attitude, a bad relationship with the coach, and he didn’t exhibit leadership skills. Plus, he was full of himself. The only team that is right for him now is the Cowboys.

    You’re right, vbe2. AND THEN THERE’S THE WHOLE McPUKEY THING

    He gagged, literally. From that moment on, on the sports biggest stage, his legacy was cemented. And another ding in the Shanahan “Mastermind” legacy.

    Peyton goes down, I, for one, do not want McPukey coming off the bench…

    That stupid looking grin after he throws an interception, or worm ball. Then the team loses the game and he keeps grinning. People should have thrown their shoes at him.

    His unfinished business consists of wanting to stand on sideline out of shape and not knowing the playbook and get paid for it. HOF for what????

    He’s only thinking what the media told him for years and years.

    Another appearance from the law of unintended consequences.

    Mcnabb was one of the most over-rated qb’s of all-time, he completely and totally benefitted from andy reids offense – as soon as he left the eagles – he was exposed for what he is – over-rated, out of shape, and lazy – with a diva attitude!!!!
    When he picked up the phone on the other teams sideline , he should have been calling other teams for a back-up job.
    He was a desparate creation by the media looking for a “non-white” super star qb.
    Qb success has nothing to do with color – but a lot to do with attitude, effort, and heart – mcnabb is 0 for three there.
    By the way – kevin kolb put up better numbers than mcnabb in his few starts under reid – so is it that the player or the system/coach??

    BTW – rush limbaugh could not have been more spot-on…….. even though that is not the “popular” thing to say – it is absolutely the TRUTH

    McNabb thinks he’s a Hall of Fame quarterback too, it’s no surprise that the thinks he should be starting somewhere.

    Dude needs to join that concussion lawsuit, I’d say.

    McNabb was “servicable”, at best, and even that was 7-8 years ago. He’s a lazy, talentless diva with a HUGE ego, and the phone that ain’t ringin’ is the proof that he’s not as good as he thinks he is.

    Other than that, I like him.

    It’s like nobody here has ever seen him play. Is he washed up now? Sure. But are your memories that short?
    ———————————————————-
    No, I vividly remember him on his knees puking on the ground as T.O. single-handedly tried to win this game on a busted stick.

    T.O. may have been a spoiled diva over his years, but that day, he showed Pats fans a LOT of grit and talent. If McNabb had 1/4 the intestinal fortitude of T.O. that day, the Iggles would have a Lomardi in their trophy case today instead of an inch of dust.

    Nothing wrong with my memory at all, fmwarner.

    Yours?

    @ pftcensorssuck

    Never compare a receiver against QB, all they do is run down the field with not much to think about. That’s why you guys criticize every QB not named Brady or Manning.

    – 4 consecutive NFC East division championships
    – 6 Pro Bowls
    - NFC Player of the Year (2004)
    - first quarterback in league history to throw over 30 touchdowns and fewer than 10 interceptions in a single season
    - completed his first 14 passes in a game – NFL record

    Most guys would kill for a career like that and you all act like McNabb is chop liver.

    McNabb should be treated with more respect. How many QB’s with his career, would be subject to this treatment?

  85. elohim7ks says: May 6, 2012 1:00 PM

    You know it’s really sad and starting to get sickening. Mc Nabb was never a top notch QB and is over the hill. Mc Nabb had a serious team placed around him in Philli. He’s a middle of the road QB and always has been, as Cassel is in K.C. and were looking for a future QB. Come on Mc Nabb your 40+ give us all a break will you. How bout you be quiet and enjoy what time you had in the league and just go away. Your not Montana, Young, Elway, Manning, Bree’s, Rogers, Brady, get the picture where i’m going with this Mc Nabb. Your not elite dude, but you are arrogant. Please do your self a favor and just fade away.

  86. otis52gsh says: May 6, 2012 1:49 PM

    He has never been anything more than an average QB at best. Get over yourself.

  87. footballmastermind says: May 8, 2012 2:02 AM

    LOL @ you Mcnabb Haters, Talking about “Not Elite” and “Average”. Take these stats and put it in your pipe and smoke it:

    TOTAL WINS IN NFL HISTORY (REGULAR SEASON + PLAYOFFS)

    1 Brett Favre 186 112 0 + 13 11= 199-123
    2 John Elway 148 82 1 + 14 7 = 162-89-1
    3 Dan Marino 147 93 0 + 8 10 = 155-103
    4 Peyton Manning 141 67 0 + 9 10 = 150-77
    5 Tom Brady 119 35 0 + 14 5 = 133-40
    6 Joe Montana 117 47 0 + 16 7 = 133-54
    7 Fran Tarkenton 124 109 6 + 6 5 = 130-114-6
    8 Johnny Unitas 118 64 4 + 6 2 = 124-66-4
    9 Terry Bradshaw 107 51 0 + 14 5 =121-56
    10 Jim Kelly 101 59 0 + 9 8 = 110-67
    11 Donovan McNabb 98 62 1 + 9 7 =107-69-1

    LOL, Donovan is one of the most WINNINGEST QB’s IN NFL HISTORY. The Lack of respect shows how much a lot of you don’t know about football. Donovan has been on of the BEST of the decade. Plenty of Legends didn’t win the Superbowl doesn’t mean they weren’t great. The numbers don’t lie. He’s won to many games.
