    Looks like Donny Mac will be sent packing from his 3 organisation in 3 years.

    Is it time for him to hang up the boots, or has he still got something to offer?

    No way he retires imo, which is a shame, as he's already tarnished a pretty good career, but since he's going to Farve it up, who bites?

    I could see the bears and texans being interested

    Texans I can see making a play for Sage Rosenfells who was just released too.

    McNabb is finished. Everyone knows that except the next NFL team that signs him, and one will.

    When we have Romo, Kitna and mcGee why would we want him? Except maybe for him to be our #4 qb

    Colts might, they're that desperate for even 1 win this year.

    no way the colts do anything that might sacrifice suck for luck

    i dont think mcnabb changes anything for them, i dont think he's any better than painter at this point of his career but why would you risk him coming in, playing at a high level, which he has for long stretches of his career, and coming in as a starter throwing to Wayne, Clark and Garcon, which i still think is a good WR group and winnning some games late to cost you andrew luck?

    To avoid going completely winless? They've got one more real chance at a win against the jags in the final round.
    If they haven't won by then, the first round draft pick would be safe.

    I hope Luck stays another year, then I can laugh at the blatant tanking of the Colts. On the topic of McNabb, do people think he can lead them to 2 wins? McNabb is finished, probably at Painter's level.

    Yes he can, i dont think he will unless he doesnt want to go to indy
    and im not sure why he wouldnt want to go there, they are a stable organisation, who will likely have a new coach with fresh ideas, as long as they make the right appointment, they've got a good ownership set up, they look after their QB's money wise if he's good enough, the same roster a year ago was a SB contender, all they need is a quality QB, if Luck thinks he's a quality QB and the colts make the right moves in the coaching department, i dont think he'll stay in

    Being under study to Peyton Manning for a year or 2 would only help Luck I would think.

    McNabb wasn't claimed on the wire so my guess is he'll land in Chicago by the end of the weekend.

    i agree but i think he suits houston's game more, lean on the run, play action off Foster to Dre Johnson, Owen Daniels.
    i think he could do well in that system


    Martz system at the bears doesnt suit him imo.

    If he lands in Houston i recon they are right back in the talk for AFC championship

    How's Houston different to what we were trying to do?

    I think Chicago suits him better, will give him a chance to throw to who he sees open and more passing opportunity rather then relying on him to be a 3rd down converter after using the running game on the first 2 downs.

    .

    nobody suits him. unless bouncing balls into the ground is somehow a completion now. i think the teams have seen enough of him to work out he is done.
