DONOVAN McNABB TO THE VIKINGS

Donovan McNabb is on his way to Minnesota, to fill the shoes of Brett Favre.  I’m guessing that shouldn’t be that difficult, all he has to do is show up to camp and he’s already ahead.  Neverthelss,  I like the move for the Vikes.  I’m not saying that McNabb is the next coming, but he is a step up from any of the quarterbacks they’ve had since, well, a young Daunte Culpepper.  McNabb will open up the running game for Peterson. His ability to scramble and throw the long ball is a combination not possessed by many quarterbacks in the league.   While his 2010 season was plagued with injuries, McNabb has had a pretty healthy and injury free career.  I think that Mike Shannahan in Washington f-ed with his mind and confidence.  It will be up to Vikings Head Coach Brad Childress to build him up again. I also think that McNabb needs to stop making bonehead throws.  Sometimes it’s OK to just take the sack or throw it out of bounds. It’s gonna take some time for the Vikes to gel with McNabb but don’t be surprised if this team wins the division. Even though Sidney Rice took off for Seattle, they still have AP, Percy Harvin, Shiancoe, and Bernard Berrian (who I’m expecting to step up). The defense is getting a little older so this is probably the Vikes’ best chance to get to the Superbowl, as I’m sure they’ve slipped under the radar of most teams in the league.

  1. yeah i’m sure the Vikings will win the Division. 0-3 start, there’s no way they can’t make it now! McNabb sure looked good against the Lion’s last weekend. What a joke.
