Geoff Mosher of DelewareOnline.com, via Pro Football Talk, believes that National Football League quarterback Donovan McNabb’s career could be over.
Rest assured someone will sign him.
The NFL is a quarterback driven league and McNabb before last year was one of the best. However, last year with the Washington Redskins he hit a speed bump as he threw for 3,315 yards passing with 14 touchdowns and 15 interceptions.
Mosher feels that the with one time Philadelphia Eagles assistant and current Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier taking a rookie in this past April’s NFL Draft, along with his age, ego and injury issues teams will pass on him. That will be far from the case when it comes to McNabb.
What people forget is that McNabb was in one offensive system his whole entire career until last year. That means when even a veteran learns something new there are going to be mistakes. Also, if you look at his career stats he has a bad year every so often.
That was the case in 1995 when Shanahan took over the Denver Broncos with Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway at the helm. That year Elway’s completion percentage went down from the previous year and threw more interceptions.
In the end, you can be sure if there is a season in 2011 that McNabb will be starter somewhere and will have another solid year.
