I thought this was going to be a post about DMac giving Joey Galloway and Fred Davis more targets this past Sunday...

"Donovan McNabb helps feed the needy"

Yeah, we need a Super Bowl...hopefully, he helps us feed that hunger too...

Not sure why he seeks the interaction of other people on the blog when it seems like he could have a hearty round of debates with himself.

He's the blog bully, trying to control it and tell people what to do.

He tells people to ITA about the trolls, and TRIES to do it himself but eventually speaks when he feels someone is taking attention away from him. Oh yeah, wasn't ITA on your list of overused things done on here beep? Try taking your own advice, cause p1funk called it, you probably do talk to yourself!!!

Donovan McNabb helps feed the needy
By Washington Post editors

In a related story, Albert Haynesworth tries to do his part in helping to FEED the need strippers at local strip clubs. That's right, the generous fatty is feeding the strippers countless $1 bills, pearl necklaces, and tube steak in the back room. It is estimated at least 1 will get pregnant, and then in turn, hit the lottery.

Jemele Hill. ESPN's resident race-baiter.


Is racism still an issue for black QBs?

I don't know...let's ask Jason Whitlock and Jesse Jackson their opinions...I wonder what they think...

Stop lying you hater!

CP is a warrior! He plays with heart!

Stop hating! We need him!

He was so productive 3-4 years ago, he deserves to continue to be force-fed carries even on one leg - we owe it to him, we are forever indebted to him!!!!!

It wouldn't matter if he goes on IR he isn't going to make a huge difference down the stretch anyway.

That injury will constantly flair up, unfortunatley for him this will be his last season as a Skin unless he is willing to play for peanuts.

Read that this morning...hard to argue with it for the most part. Especially Shaun King's quote:

"If Jay Cutler left Chicago, and even if he played badly, he's always going to be viewed as a franchise QB. For African-Americans, their value is strictly tied to their current performance. It's tough to stick up for Vince Young because his immaturity has been a consistent issue, but a Caucasian QB that has been as successful as Vince Young wouldn't be pulled as much as him."

I wouldn't quite use VY as the poster child for this topic, but McNabb surely is a case in point...

RE: McNabb helps feed the needy

He has also been know to help the lame walk and the blind to see -- witness the continuing play of Galloway and Williams.

Now if he could just connect with the slot receiver on a short slant, we'd be calling him a real miracle worker.

Flounder, agree, CP was going to struggle with this injury the rest of the year.

There is no team out there that is going to pay him large dollars next season so he may realize that the best place for him is playing for MS as a third down back.

Pride is a hard thing to swallow though.

??

It's actually quite easy to argue with it and it's nonsense.

Despite playing well last season, Bruce Gradkowski pretty much automatically lost his job to Jason Capmbell after he got acquired - reverse discrimination?

What about Kevin Kolb getting benched for Mike Vick?

Why wasn't Rex Grossman given a fair chance to compete for the starting gig in DC? After all, he knows the offense better than McNabb, and he's been to as many Superbowls as DMac.

Jay Cutler keeps getting the benefit of the doubt despite uneven play. He keeps getting a vote of confidence as a franchise QB - from his black head coach.

I actually think the VY/Cutler comparison is a good one because of their draft position, W-L records, and dispositions (both prima donna babies).

I don't think McNabb is a strong case in point now (maybe at one time) because he's been Andy Reid's right hand man for 11 years.

There aren't many other QBs, let alone black QBs, who get that kind of stable nuturing from Day 1 of their careers.

And say what you want, McNabb played for a pretty good Eagles team. Two other QBs have come in a played pretty well--one like a league MVP--with McNabb's old teammates.
