In all seriousness, though, I'd trade Delhomme & Clemens straight up for Donovan.

He's old, washed up, and no where as good as he once was... But I'd feel alot more comfortable with him on our roster than Clemens or Delhomme.

Both Chicago and Dallas put claims in on Kyle Orton. I'm guessing he goes to one of those teams, although since their both 7-4, I'm not sure who's first in line when it comes to a claim. Also (although my guess is that it doesn't matter), both are ahead of the Texans.

Well I'd take Mcnabb for the rest of the season and that's an easy no brainer for me. Get him over here now!! I don't care what the hell he looked like in Minnesota or Washington. He can play a lot better than anything we've got now and he'd have the same responsibility as Leinart had where he wouldn't have to win games for us.

I doubt Kubiak would bring him in here though since his mentor Shanahan didn't like Mcnabb.

Here is where the Colts convince the world they want Luck. There is no excuse for them not to claim his cheap contract.

He will never make it down to the Texans position even if we had any interest.

McNabb Released by Vikings

Quote:
The Minnesota Vikings have agreed to release quarterback Donovan McNabb, team sources said Thursday.

McNabb, who was traded to the Vikings in the offseason to be their starter, recently had been taking reps with the third string and went to the team requesting his release, sources said. After a conversation with coach Leslie Frazier the Vikings have granted his request.

Several potential playoff teams have lost quarterbacks recently, including the Chicago Bears (McNabb's hometown team, and a place he would obviously love to play) and the Houston Texans, who run a system very much like what McNabb ran during his 2010 season with the Washington Redskins.

At this point, all players must clear waivers, a 24-hour process whereby other clubs could make claims. Last week, the Cowboys and Bears made claims on former Kyle Orton, as did the Chiefs, who were awarded the former Broncos quarterback because of their worse record, and thus waiver priority.

Several teams could use insurance at quarterback, and McNabb, despite his struggles in recent years, played in five NFC Championship Games and started a Super Bowl for the Philadelphia Eagles.

McNabb has a $5.05 million contract for 2011 and would cost a team about $1.5 million for the remainder of the season.
What are your thoughts? I say bring him in and work him out, at the least.

have any of you guys seen McNabb play lately? Hes been awful, has been reported to have poor work habits and is a crappy leader. He's been on 3 teams in 3 years. He's taking the Randy 'I'm past my prime Moss world tour. I'll pass.

Default Donovan McNabb to the Texans?

Requested to be released by the Vikings and they did just that.

He doesn't throw INTs (third lowest % in NFL history) and can still be mobile and score. Would this be a good fit for the Texans? Better than Yates in my opinion
