D. McNabb
With Brett Favre retired (we think), the Minnesota Vikings need a quarterback. Donovan McNabb, after a disappointing year in Washington, will need a new team once the lockout ends. Could it be the perfect marriage?

ESPN’s Adam Schefter says there is interest at least on one end. Schefter tweets that he senses McNabb would like to play for Minnesota.

McNabb would be an excellent place-holding quarterback while the Vikings search for a long-term solution. Thanks to his days in Philly, he is well-versed in the West Coast-oriented scheme the Vikings employ.

he needs to go to the vikes.Finally he would have a legit running game something nabb has never had. I have said since 2006 that mcnabb is worlds better when he doesn't have to pass 30 times a game. To me donovan should have been in more of a bootleg style offense. to say that his arm is weakned or that he is no longer mobile is folish. donny is still a legit starter in the nfl and as an eagle fan i hope he has a dream season ending with a SB win.

The only thing keeping mcnabb from the hall is a ring and i have always believed that if a ring is the only thing left to solidify you as one of the greats than you are already a hall of famer. Football is the ultimate team sport and the hardest sport  to win a championship in. I always believed that a hof is a guy whos was one of few who played at a high level consistantly and from 2000-2010 5 nfc champ games a sb apperance and carrying a lackluster ( except for the t.o. year and 2010 ) wr corps for 90% of his time in philly all while breaking all major eagle qb and wins marks and the guy had a knack for not throwing ints to boot.

argueably the most underapperciated qb in the last 15 years. since he played in the manninng/brady/ farve era he wont be a first ballot guy but he'll have his day.

McNabb has always been SO OVERATED by the media over the years. I knew he would'nt last long with the Redskins. Hes never been better than average really.

I'd sign him for a few years and draft a QB in the second round to develop.  I suppose if Cam Newton is there in the first take a shot, but I think they'd be better off waiting for one of the second-tier QBs in the 2nd (assuming you view Newton and Gabbert to be top-tier).
