A rare missed game for Donovan McNabb's parents

While Donovan McNabb's return to Philadelphia will be a hot ticket on Sunday, there are at least a couple of McNabb fans who won't be in attendance: the quarterback's parents.

It's an out-of-the-ordinary decision for Sam and Wilma McNabb, who rarely miss any of their son's games.

"To be honest with you, knock on wood, they haven't missed one game, professional, college, high school, grammar school," Donovan McNabb said before the season. "They have yet to miss one game."

The McNabbs say they have missed a couple of their son's games over the years but not many.

"He probably can't remember us missing because we were there for 99.9 percent of them," Sam McNabb said before the season.

People familiar with the McNabbs' decision say they have no problem returning to Lincoln Financial Field, but because they have so many friends and the day could be filled with distractions, they feel they'll be able to follow the game better on television.

Because he has spent 11 years years around Philadelphia, McNabb is still expected to have many other family and friends in attendance.

Run a 3-3-5. Cobra package w/ Rogers, Hall, Landry, Moore, and either Buchanon or Horton/Doughty depending on down and distance.

Daniels/Carriker, Haynesworth/Holliday, Kemo/Golston, Flether, Orakpo, McIntosh.

Try to limit Carter's 3-4 snaps. Try to keep Doughty off the field except for teams.

I think we both can agree that Riggins was a special player, and while I like Portis, he is no John Riggins. Riggins was the type that COULD hit a couple guys and move the pile, Clinton is not. Wasn't Clinton on the sidelines during the Houston game at the one point in the second half practicing gripping the ball with a trainer. Obviously something is wrong, and I don't want him fumbling, so he should go down when he feels the play is over, kinda like Moss does.
I don't need to fight with anyone else, we used to get along. Remember the whole Albert_Haynesworth and Poopy_McPoop saga?

Re: Clinton's Dive

Seriously. It was a pu$$ move. Period.

The only people who do that in football are spindly-a$$ed wide receivers and QBs who may as well be wearing the booty shorts and garters from the Lingerie League.

Before the St. Louis game, had you ever in your life heard of a running back hitting the turf in the open field b/c he was afraid of getting gang-tackled? Ever?

It's a pretty, pretty big deal when your RB fears contact.

Blocking is one thing: He can control the contact and hit versus being hit. It's the contact he can't control that he's scared of and this is why he's finished.

I don't believe Portis was afraid of contact, he didn't want to take a chance of fumbling. Portis rarely fumbles anyway, which is good, cause I'd still be cussing the screen if he had stayed up for a couple extra yards and fumbled at mid field.

Thanks Diez, this is what I kept repeating to the fools the other day up here making the same "blocking" argument.

And I was also drawing the Shaun Alexander parallel.

When SA broke his wrist the year before he started to really really suck, he adpoted this weak running style where he would turn his back to a tackler and sit on the ground when he anticipated contact. It was a way to favor his arm.

IMO, what we are seeing from CP is a weak running style because he doesn't want to get crushed in the head again after the concussion he suffered in Atlanta last year which kept his vision blurry for a month...that's got to be some scary stuff for anyone - I don;t care how "tough" you are. In that game he got sandwiched in the open-field; didn't really see where the tacklers where coming from and they both clobbered him.

CP has been a warrior, but he's done. I don't blame him for not wanting to spend the balance of his life twitching and slurring and asking the NFL for handouts like all these old-timer players we see suffering the long-term effects of concussions.

But let's just call it like it is.

Brilliant-

The coach tells CP to take a dive when a defender approaches to avoid a fumble. Is that why he belly flopped against Dallas in the open field and why he flopped again in the Texans game when he had the corner and should of scored against a LB.

What a novel coaching idea, I'm sure you'll start to see it trickle down to all levels of football.

The idea of going down to avoid a fumble is if you are wrapped up by a defender, go down to avoid a strip. The defenders actually had to reach down and touch CP for the whistle to blow.

A NFL running back intentionally going down to avoid fumbling is like a carpenter not plugging in his saw to avoid injuring himself.

It made me think of Jim Brown's disdain for Franco Harris because he would run out of bounds to avoid contact, leaving a few yards on the table. IMHO, Portis took it to a new level. Getting everything available and holding on to the ball aren't mutually exclusive...or shouldn't be.

Red,

I get on Portis's case at times too, but in this case I do think this issue is overblown...and given that what happened appears obvious to me, I have no idea why.

Portis had no feeling in that arm, which has been hurt since week 1. When he was surrounded by players, he went down because he had no confidence he could keep the ball since he couldn't feel it. Shanahan, after the Moss fumble, probably emphasized ball security, which got Portis thinking. Then, when Shanahan asked what happened and Portis explained, Shanahan rightfully got Torain in the game (if he can't feel one arm/hand, it is a liability).

This explains the drop to the turf and why Torain took over the carries.

I don't really have an issue with any of it, save I wish Portis had told coaches of the extent of his arm/hand issues - if it's numb, they need to know.

The truth is, when things go bad we invent stuff to complain about here. This team is doing auditions this year, no matter what they say about "winning now" publicly. They know they have holes to fill, and they are finding out who is gonna stay, who can be traded, and who is getting the boot.

They'll have better personnel to fit what they want to do next year. This year, they have what they have, plus whatever stop-gaps they have managed to bring in on the cheap.

Seems pretty obvious to me....

I've seen RB's breaking 6 or 7 tackles to reach the endzone. And get a god damn dish on your roof so you can watch the games on Sunday.

"Dude did a belly flop in the open field and you freaks want to defend him......"

Maybe because Lord and Savior Coach Shanahan had his back on the situation. Portis said that he was coached to do so, don't you idiots think that if he was lying or said the sh*t to deflect blame from himself Shanahan would have called him out on it?

I know most of you all want Portis ran out of town, but damn, at least try to gather and ASSESS the facts before you go making brainless claims!

Some of you KILL the fu_k outta me with your constant HATE and DISCONTENT for player X! Will spin, spin and spin some g-d more all the while totally ignoring the FACTS and losing all sense of rationality -- just to make yourselves appear right.

This was a non issue then, FOUR days later you're just coming off as flies slamming against the window with this bullsh*t. Let it go already, because as much as you wish it was something that'll back your arguments, it ain't. Get over it.

the thing about the Portis run that is more relevant is this.

A lot of NFL RBs take that one for 50 yards or even all the way. People talk about his lack of burst -- watch the replay and stop it as he's around the 35 yard line. Then ask yourself, what would the end of this run would look like if it our RB had good speed?

@pabrian, a few post back you clowned Shanny for only having CP and a couple of backs he picked up off the street. may I remind you Shanny has made a living off turning backs off the street into 1000 yard backs. Shanahan makes running backs they don't make him sn. so don't be surprised if Torain starts the game and gets 100 yards come sunday. it's what he do not how he do it.....I said do it

Are there any editors at the Washington Post who can help the beat reporters to do their jobs. This is not news. It has nothing to do with the football team. What is going on at Redskins Park. What is Bruce Allen trying to do to make this team better? Why when Mike Shanahan does his press conference on Monday are you afraid to ask tough questions? Why did this team go from the fourth best defense to last? Why can/t the Redskins stop the run? Who are you looking for at Wide Receiver? Why does Carlos play 10 yards off the line of scrimmage? There are thousands of questions but the only way to get anyone to ask them is to read something other than the Post. Redskins fans are very serious about football. Stop this garbage and report on football. Please.

I wonder if Dan Snyder offered to take McNabbs parents to the game? They could fly in with him, and sit in the visiting owners box seats ... that way they wouldn't have to worry about anything.

Seems like an easy fix to the problem.
