DMV: I Would Prefer That McNabb Play

I’m still torn about this whole Donovan McNabb, quarterback of the Washington Redskins thing, but when faced with the choice between him or Rex Grossman under center, it gets a lot less muddled. Thankfully, it sounds like 5 will play in the opener. [WaPo]

  1. I think Shanahan is just throwing up a smoke screen about McNabb but who knows. Listening to Mike Wise on 106.7 The Fan yesterday McNabb’s injury is permanent, the whole season is lost with Grossman starting and we’re going 2-14. I may be somewhat of an idealist but I really can’t believe that his injury is more than a mild sprain.

    As for MK, I don’t get what the problem is. I have a hard time understanding what kind of hamstring injury has kept him out of practice for the last month. If it’s serious why hasn’t it been diagnosed before now? It makes me question his work ethic.

  2. Okay I didn’t read the last link(s) before I posted but apparently Mike Wise was on a roll yesterday. It was actually a day that I listened to the radio as I was in the car for several hours. He was pretty ridiculous.

  3. Didn’t Kelly hurt himself at McNabb’s Super Spectacular Secret Southwest Sweatlodge Training? If so, I don’t think it made a big enough stink– or has everyone already written Kelly off?

  4. Def heard someone on the radio yesterday talking about how they were going to tweet something and see if Adam Shefter (or some name close to that) would ‘run with it’. Guess it worked… That’s good stuff.

  5. It doesn’t change anything for the team or for Kelly. I’m not defending him. I just think it interesting that Haynesworth was (deservedly) crucified for not participating in OTA’s, yet McNabb’s extraspecial, extracurricular, non-OTA workout for wideouts leads to an injury (maybe two) that hurts the team– inasmuch as a second-round washout hurts a team.

    He did injure himself in Arizona, before training camp, in a non-team-sanctioned regimen, right? I’m just asking why that isn’t being addressed. Your response Jules, kinda answers my question. Kelly makes MMA wannabe Michael Westbrook look like a keeper.
