To be honest, as much as I'm not a fan of Mcnabb
, I think he could possibly be a good fit. Yeah he did have a down year with the Redskins whose offensive line was in shambles, whose WR's core wasn't that great aside from Santana Moss, who had is best season of his 10 year career with Mcnabb at QB might I add, and whose running game was down the drown after Portis couldn't stay healthy. Torrain filled in decently but nothing to get excited about.
Andy Reid didn't get rid of Mcnabb for the reason of his play. Remember, last year when he actually had weapons in a WCO (Jackson, Maclin, Avant, Celek, Mccoy) he had 3,500 yards 22 TD's 10 INT's and a 92.9 QB rating and we haven't seen numbers CLOSE to that since Garcia's 2002 season (3,400 yards 21 TD's 10 INT's 85.6 QB rating. Reid new he had a younger, high draft pick in the wings and wanted to see what he had out of him.
In a WCO, you have to have the ability to hit your WR's IN STRIDE in order for it to work. This is why I don't think Alex will be the QB. He has never ONCE learned how to do this in 6 years and I think Harbaugh would be able to help Alex under different circumstances but Alex has had 6 years worth of bad coaching which means Jim would have to essentially get rid of all his bad habits and start from scratch. No thank you
would be my free agent choice before Mcnabb because he is younger and has had good game experience as well as sat behind a GREAT NFL QB who knows what it takes to win a game.
would be my ideal trade scenario because he is still young and has been effective for the past 3 years straight.
Other than that, draft a guy such as Mallet, Gabbert, Newton or Ponder and Stanzi later and work your magic in getting them ready for Day 1.
As much media coverage as we have been getting for Jim, it is only right to change the face of the Franchise and start fresh. I don't understand some posters saying we would be "worse" than what we are if we sign one of those guys instead of staying with Alex
How can we possibly be any worse than 6 straight (Alex era) and 8 straight (total) non-winning seasons??? It can't get any worse people
