Thoughts About McNabb

July 27, 2011 — Leave a comment

It is hard to admit one is a Vikings fan these days. But I cannot cut my loyalties loose, despite the fact that they spun me around last year and kicked me below the belt.

Now they have gone (or so it seems) and picked up another veteran quarterback, Donavan McNabb.

What should we make of this?

First, they had no other choice. They need more options in the quarterback position.. Even if McNabb does not start, we need someone there if Ponder is not ready.

Second, I am not convinced the McNabb is done. He did not have the weapons around him in Washington that Minnesota provides. He could come in and have a dud year, but then again he could have another breakout year. I am willing to take the chance. Like I said we don’t have many other options.

So in conclusion, I welcome McNabb, whether it be as a mentor to Ponder or as our starter.
