Family enjoys Donovan McNabb's reception in Philly

Before we turn the page on quarterback Donovan McNabb's return to Philadelphia, we were curious about how his extended family viewed the standing ovation he received and their feelings after the Redskins' victory.

Last week, Rick Maese reported that McNabb's parents, Sam and Wilma McNabb, who rarely miss any of their son's games, did not travel to attend the 17-12 victory at Lincoln Financial Field.

But everyone was happy after the game, right Donovan?

"Well, I mean, it wasn't one that, you know, was kind of like I circled it and my family was throwing darts at the calendar," McNabb said Wednesday at Redskins Park. "It's a game. But, obviously, there's something from playing there for 11 years.

"Obviously, you go back, and when you receive the kind of ovation that I got, I mean, it was wonderful. And to come out on top really topped things off. We were happy. But yet and still, we've got the Green Bay Packers coming up this week."

And now, we move on.

Big, what you think of this as a set up?

Skins, Giants, Eagles, Cowboys
49ers, Rams, Cardinals, Saints
Packers, Lions, Vikings, Bears
Falcons, Steelers, Browns, Colts
Patriots, Bills, Jets, Dolphins
Chiefs, Texans, Jaguars, Bucks
Seahawks, Raiders, Chargers, Denver
Panthers, Titans, Ravens, Bengals

What's the NFC and what's the AFC? Not that it really matters...

49ers, Rams, Cardinals, Saints

I like this division only because the Rams are on the up and up and the 49ers SHOULD be contenders


Skins, Giants, Eagles, Cowboys

Still don't like the 'Boys here, but after thinking this is the best division in the league, next to the AFC East.

Seahawks, Raiders, Chargers, Denver
Panthers, Titans, Ravens, Bengals

These two divisions even out IMO. lol, poor Raiders though, they won't ever get a shot.


Falcons, Steelers, Browns, Colts

Wow! This one's a shake up. The Steelers playing the Colts twice a season? That'd be stellar!

I like this spread, but don't ever seeing the league making this much of a change.

If a team is placed in LA what city loses its present team? Buffalo? JAX? probably the two most likely candidates, which could slide the cowboys into the AFC South division, hmmm I like that.

This is why Moss is gone and this is why he wont last in Minny.

Sources: Moss was becoming a distraction in New England
Posted by Mike Florio on October 6, 2010 11:03 AM ET
Multiple sources tell us in the wake of the deal that sent receiver Randy Moss from the Patriots to the Vikings for a third-round pick that the trade became a necessity because Moss was becoming an in-house distraction for the Patriots.

Per one source, Moss "was pissing [coach] Bill [Belichick] off at every turn." The source opined that Belichick wouldn't have given Moss to Minnesota for a third-round pick unless Belichick knew that keeping him could hurt the team.

As another source explained it, some players were becoming more and more frustrated with Moss, who reportedly asked for a trade after his Week One postgame tirade regarding his perceived lack of appreciation, based on the actual lack of a contract extension.

That said, other players in the locker room liked Moss and had no problem with him. Still, if enough of them had enough of Moss and if Belichick was indeed growing weary of dealing with the downside of a guy Belichick didn't plan to bring back in 2011, the move makes plenty of sense.

I won't ever get over the fact that the cowboys are THE ONLY team that isn't in a division that is relative to their geographical location.

It pi$$es me off! BAH! Go away cowboys, you don't belong in the NFC EAST.

McNabb talked yesterday on the radio about how he wants to stay here he has purchased a house and has a lot going on with local charities. He said he wants it and believes it will get done.

Posted by: Flounder21 | October 6, 2010 11:59 AM | Report abuse

Floun (and Brown) - I tend to agree he's leaning towards staying if the price is right, but of course he's going to say that - he's barely been here 6 months, played 4 games and we're in 1st place. It would take a horrible start for him not to be "saying the right things". That said, he is a character guy and not surprisingly he is involved in the community, and I do think he'd love a chance to stick it to Philly for 2-3 more years. His future here depends largely on the next 4-6 weeks; if we're above .500 and still in contention come mid-late Nov, I think it gets done. If we're in the cellar, Minny may look a lot better.

Right now my odds are 70-30 that he re-sgins with us. However I'd be surprised if it gets done before Week 10, and it wouldn't surprise me if it isn't done until after the season.

Why would you want real news like that when you can have this nice fluff piece that tells you nothing you couldn't have assumed without reading?

No one else is getting an update on the Portis MRI, either, which tells us the information lockdown starts with the Redskins. I would think one could probably put two and two together if they were working out running backs yesterday or today, but apparently, WaPo cannot seem to mine that kind of information, either. Cheer up, though. I am sure we will get another nice fluffy piece today - maybe something about how Torain was raised or how Landry likes the color magenta or something like that. Yawn.

You know how players are supposed to put the previous week's game behind them after a day? I wish reporters would do the same, I'm still yet to hear ANYTHING about this week's game against...um, against....shoot, I don't even know because THEY AREN'T TALKING ABOUT IT!!!
Games should go under the 24 hour rule, talk about it up to a day later and then move on.

Isn't that Edge's cousin? This is a signing that is in preparation for the ATV (All Torain Vehicle) to wind up in the shop. This is also Shanny's M.O.: Plugging almost any RB into his system and watching them succeed.

This also indicates that Janky Spanky is at the end of his rope. The Skins will have gone from having the oldest backfield in the NFL to having the youngest by week 6.

Book Me.

Unless you want to talk about Ryan Torain knocking Mikell for a loop on his way into the end zone.

The Packers: A team that's not at the top of their game. After a loss to Chicago, they need a pick-6 from Woodson to beat the Lions.
Offense:
Aaron Rogers is a lot like Mike Vick, a little slower but reads defenses much better. Gets sacked a lot too. I suspect the game plan will be much the same as it was for Vick: 4 man rush, keep Rogers contained in the pocket if possible. If not, force him to his left. There's a little bit of back-and-forth in the press between Rogers and McCarthy, will that effect the game plan for Sunday? The Packers line is hurt: LT Clifton and LG Colledge are both nursing injuries. Clifton has a knee, which may help Orakpo beat him with speed or power. I haven't seen a dominating bull rush out of 98 yet. If he gets that going, Rogers may be joining Vick on the bench.

Other skill players -- I don't think the Pack has two guys like McCoy and Jackson. Their WR are good, but they're not likely to take a 5 yard pass and go 80 more into the end zone. Haslett may end up playing more aggressively against their WR.

Defense: after 6 sacks in 2 games, Roid-boy Matthews had zero against CHI and 1 against DET, and only 3 tackles in each game. Is the book out on him? They were both divisional opponents. Both inside backers are beasts and the 3 down linemen are playing pretty well. Cory Raymer has GOT TO HANDLE B.J. Raji. He's struggled against quality NT las couple of years, but if Raymer can't get the job done, the running game will have big problems.

A key matchup is Hicks against Jenkins in pass protection. Will Williams be back at LT?

I saw somewhere that KW was cut on Oct. 2 and signed Oct. 6, so whoever was cut for James to be added, it wasn't KW. How many running backs can 1 team keep on the practice squad? Should just be re-named to Runningback Squad (stupid nickname, I know. Didn't have enough time to think of a better one!)
