    And suddenly the Vikes are a legitimate threat.

    Sign him!

    I'll take a washed up McNabb as insurance any day.

    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.

    Rick "Uncle Tom" Smith may think otherwise.

    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.

    Yes...

    If the Bears don't snatch him up first.

    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.

    I'd take McNabb and release Delhomie or Clemens.

    I'd waive Clemens for him in a heartbeat.

    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.

    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
