Donovan McNabb‘s first season out of Philadelphia was forgettable. So forgettable that it’s likely to be his first and only season in Washington, which is expected to release him into free agency.
That has led to a river of speculation about where McNabb will play next. The consensus among most observers is that he’ll land in Minnesota, where it’s believed there is mutual interest in bridging the gap to first-round pick Christian Ponder. While we’ll presume that he doesn’t already know where he’ll play, McNabb has even promised it will be a “special” season.
Fair enough. But after the disaster that was 2010, can McNabb really return to form?
NFL Network analyst Brian Baldinger — who believes McNabb to the Vikings makes sense — has to put in the work to make it happen.
“He has a chance, and it’s up to Donovan,” Baldinger said. “He’s talked this week about going back to the fundamentals of the game. The fundamentals of the game, they get away from him sometimes. He is an inaccurate thrower, and he does have some holes in his game. But I think he’s been humbled. I think he’s going to be all about the work ethic.”
