As he tries to get back into the NFL, Donovan McNabb has gone the way of Charles Barkley, dropping pounds in order to get some attention.
It won’t matter. McNabb lost 20 pounds between 2009 and 2010, believing that he needed to be lighter to run Mike Shanahan’s offense in Washington. And it didn’t really work out all that well.
McNabb’s primary obstacle to getting a job continues to be, in our (or at least my) view, McNabb;s belief that he should be the starter. Unless and until he embraces holding a clipboard, mentoring a youngster, and playing only when necessary, McNabb will continue to wait for the phone to ring.
And if that doesn’t get McNabb noticed, he could always take another page from the Barkley playbook, and put on a dress.
