McNabb to Chicago Bears?

I just heard Donovan McNabb got cut by the Vikes, and I think his going back to his hometown team only makes too much sense. I think they are in dire need of a QB if they want to make the play-off's, which at 7-4, you pretty much would like to do. McNabb was pretty weak in a few Vikes games, but I am sure he could do something for the Bears.

With Cutler likely being out for the year, I am guessing Chicago would love to see what happens with Donovan at the helm. If Donovan is willing to be their QB for the rest of the year, I think they probably make the play-offs, maybe make things interesting. McNabb knows a thing or two about using RB's as receivers and the Bears defense is pretty ridiculous. Definitely interested to see if this goes down, as it would be the best option for McNabb as a competitive team who has a need at QB (unless Cutler does miraculously return, which sounds possible, but maybe too late for the Bears to do anything).

What about the Texans? They

What about the Texans?

They could use a good veteran presence to help them out. Great running game and having Andre Johnson to throw to isn't a bad thing either lol.

I feel for McNabb though. I was a late bloomer to the NFL but since I live around Philly, I always watched the Eagles games. He's a classy person, always professional, and a pretty tough competitor. He's one of those QBs I would love to see getting a championship before he retires. These last few years have been real tough on him and he isn't finding the right system. I hope he does well where ever he goes.

lmao

If you think McNabb is going to get you a championship, well you are just out of touch with reality. He hasn't been good for years, and he didn't adjust his mechanics to help him transition from a dual threat to a regular QB. If you want an out of shape jokester who hits receiver's feet in-stride, then 5 is your man.

Not even a Bears fan

Just think anything can happen, and have seen it happen before. Did you think Michael Vick was going to blow up like he did last year? I have no idea if McNabb could win a Super Bowl with the Bears, but he is certainly a step up over Caleb Hanie. Just think it would be fun to see what happens. Tim Tebow is winning NFL games thanks to a defense that has been for the most part, awesome. If McNabb had some more weapons and a solid D behind him, he can at the least keep them slightly competitive. Worth a shot.

I saw the Texans right after I made this, but have to say, they are in good hands with Kellen Clemens.......

Well, he was a former Duck, and he was amazing as a senior until he tore his ACL. Andre Johnson has missed so many games this season, it is surprising that the Texans are killing it. They seem to have an offense that runs with pretty much anyone though, I would like to see what Clemens does and they also just signed Jake Delhomme, who I still think is better than Hanie or Josh McCown. Plus, I believe the Bears would have a better waiver position due to their record, if I am not mistaken.

McNabb might be the most

McNabb might be the most Underrated and Underappreciated QB this past decade...The Bears might sign him..But he looked old,slow and lost in the few games i saw him with the Vikings...

Apb540 is the stereotypical

Apb540 is the stereotypical Philly fan, who is unappriciative and takes everything for granted.

I've been a San Francisco and Oakland fan for the past 7 odd years, and was so frustrating to see our hope go up every year, and for them to bring them down every year, so you should be gratfull for every snap McNabb took for you guys, cause he was a top 5QB in the past decade, yes you heard me top 5. So instead of mindlessly bashing a guy who stood by you for so many years, maybe you should be gratefull and wish the guy some luck.

Dude apb540 is being

Dude apb540 is being completely realistic. McNabb has been nothing short of God awful since he was sent packing from Philly. He was subpar in Washington and atrocious in Minny. This year he was throwing 10 yard pass attempts 4 feet short. He no longer has those legs and he was never the most accurate passer in the world to begin with.

Chicago doesn't really have weapons for him outside of Forte. I could have maybe seen something working short term if they still had Olsen @ TE, as McNabb has always loved his TEs and RBs. But I really don't think he will be the one to save the bears playoff hopes.

But I'm not telling you guys

But I'm not telling you guys that he'sa great QB right now, because he has sucked since Philly, but it seems from APB and even your post that you didn't ackknowledge all the great year McNabb gave you guys, and rather tend to focus on the negatives, and he has been terrible as of late, but that doesn't take away from all the great things he has done the past decad.

Cuz this thread isn't bout

Cuz this thread isn't bout the iggles or McNabb's past. This is about his prospects as Chicago's QB for the rest of the season.

If what he accomplished in his past at all can contribute to what Chicago needs done now, by all means it would be a great signing. But this is 2011 now, and a whole lot has changed since 05.

McNabb obviously was really good at Philly but lets face it ...HE SUCKS NOW

If I was Chicago I would rather go after Vince Young or Matt Flyn on Green Bay OR maybe even go after Peyton Manning and see if he can return later on in the season

Tell us Philly fans we are

Tell us Philly fans we are unappreciate?

Bring A.I. back into Philly, people in the streets will kiss the ground he walks on.

Bring in Randall Cunningham, people will buy him drinks all night.

Tell Eric LeClair to come to Genos, he'll get a free cheesesteak.

We appreciate things alot more than people realize. And if you bring us a title, we'll treat you like a king.

haha

Yea I'm the stereotypical Philly fan: Being bashed for not being afraid to speak the dam truth. I don't need to aknowledge his great years because we all remember them. They were awesome. But here is a stat for you: Since the Eagles lost in the Super Bowl in '04, they are only 8 games over .500.

Thank you for the support M-Dymes. You understand your Philly sports.

You are the stereotypical California sports fan: Having two teams you follow? Wack.

What? I was just using both

What? I was just using both of them as an example, and I see no problem with being a Niners fan and also liking the Raiders. And no I don't follow the Warriors and Kings, or the Giants and A's.

Okay, aside from all this

Okay, aside from all this "McNabb sucks" and "McNabb is underrated talk" which QB is better for the Texans and Bears at this point?

All they need is a guy to finish off the season for them and McNabb only needs a couple of games to try out and get a decent contract in the offseason.

It would make sense for both parties.

^Bingo BOL23

That is all that I was saying. I mean, guys, I know Donovan's best years are behind him. But, I also have seen enough crazy things happen in sports to know you can never count a team out. The freaking Seahawks beat the Saints in the first round last year! That's right, Charlie Whitehurst's team beat Drew Bree's team! Plus, do I need to remind you that TIM TEBOW IS 5-1 AS A STARTER! Yes, I too am amazed.

But, the thing with both of those situations is, they did not necessarily need monster performances out of their QB. They got plays from other facets of their team, be it their run game or their defense. The reason that the Philly guys sound all sour grapesy is hating on the idea that McNabb truly would be a step up over anyone else they have at QB with Cutler being injured. I believe he would, even if he is not even close to the player he used to be. I am not saying he is a Super Bowl QB, but the Bears made it to a Super Bowl with Rex Grossman at the helm (different team, different time, but you know what I am saying).

I saw Trent Dilfer win a Super Bowl. It happened. Their defense was incredible, but it happened. Plus, even with as poorly as McNabb played in Washington and his brief time in Minnesota, he is still a guy you would rather have QB'ing for your team over nearly any back-up in the league (I said nearly). Not every team has a good situation when their QB goes down. If you think Caleb Hanie is as good as Donovan McNabb, suit yourself. But, I would like to see what Donovan does in that situation.

I think it is certainly possible they get a wild card spot. Than, who knows what happens? They play San Francisco, New Orleans or Atlanta? Well, none of those teams won a first round play-off series last year. I am slightly surprised that you guys are taking the route of calling Donovan washed-up. He may be, but have you seen some of the other QB's winning games this season? He is old, he is not a top quarterback, but he has a lot of experience and I think that he for the most part has been pretty decent at winning some football games. You could predict his failure, but calling him out like you guys have just seems kind of petty. I end this post by saying, have you seen Tim Tebow throw? Well, kid may have wheels, but I think that Donovan McNabb is probably a better QB even now than you are guys are saying.

cubs tickets

Therefore, Chicago's club handle changed , and by 1890 they had become known as the Chicago, illinois Colts or sometimes "Anson's Colts," mentioning Cap's effect within the club. cubs tickets

LaMarcus Aldridge added 14

LaMarcus Aldridge added 14 points and eight rebounds for the Blazers in their preseason opener under new coach Terry Stotts. Lillard, the sixth overall pick in last June's draft from Weber State, looked sharp in 24 minutes as Portland's point guard, adding five rebounds and two 3-pointers.

"I thought our guards did a very good job of finding him. I thought it was a good first performance for him."

Drummond acknowledged he had some nerves before the game.

"My teammates saw that, but they talked to me before the game," Drummond said. "They said, just play the game, do the things you need to do, help us on the defensive end and things will start coming to you.

Frank isn't too worried about

Frank isn't too worried about the expectations of Drummond. He said it would be a long process, like it is for most rookies.

"Anyone can do it once in a while," Frank said. "You don't get to this league without talent. What usually separates players is the ability, one, to fight through fatigue and have greater will than skill; two, is the consistency of doing what you do -- whatever your job is -- and doing it every single night."gfsg32

The regular season hasn’t

The regular season hasn’t even started yet and we have already gotten a ton of great quotes from some of the NBA’s finest.

Kobe Bryant recently mentioned that his next two seasons may be his last. During that same interview, Kobe offered a light critic of Dwight Howard’s personality and style of play:

“Dwight, to be a three-time Defensive Player of the Year, you’ve got to have a little of that dog in you,” Bryant said. “It’s just a matter of him digging deep and just pulling it out. But it’s already there. It’s just a matter of him having it become habit.”bhsfdg
