McNabb might be waiting for awhile.
It isn’t that I don’t think McNabb can still play quarterback at some level in the NFL, but McNabb wants to be a starter and teams don’t want that distraction, especially if they have a young quarterback.
“I sort of have some unfinished business,” McNabb said during a Friday appearance on ESPN 1000 in Chicago. “I love the game, I have a passion for the game, and I look forward to continuing that on.”
To that end, McNabb said he’s been keeping in shape and working on his fundamentals in case an NFL team comes calling.
“I’ve been training hard and preparing myself out in San Diego working with George Whitfield, the obviously well-known quarterback guru, supposedly, for over the past month,” McNabb said via ESPN by way of PFT. “Just kind of refining the skills, working on the mechanics and getting back to a high level, an elite level. I’m just waiting for the opportunity to display that.”
McNabb isn’t at an elite level anymore, is he better than Jake Delhomme? Probably, but when he makes these quotes I think it causes teams to be less likely to give him an opportunity.
My personal feelings are that he has played his last down in the NFL. He might not want to retire but will be forced into it.
