McNabb works out with Cardinals

Donovan McNabb is currently a member of the Redskins. But despite the fact that Washington didn't draft a quarterback, it seems quite unlikely he'll remain on the team's roster when the regular season begins.

So, when you read that McNabb is working out with the Arizona Cardinals -- a team desperately in need of quarterback help -- there's really only one thing to do: take off sprinting and see if you can land on the "Jump to Conclusions" mat.

“I always believe in a low profile,” McNabb told Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic. “Guys get a chance to work and it’s not something you’re broadcasting all over the place, telling everybody what you doing and who is in town and all of that."

ARGH. Or not. I was actually kidding anyway -- everyone knows that only Carson Palmer can work for Arizona. Plus, McNabb lives in Phoenix and he's not exactly welcome in D.C. right now. And Todd Heap was with the Cards too, and you don't see anyone trying to tie him to their offense.

Fortunately, while Somers had McNabb's attention, he asked him about the quarterback's future.

“The next couple years, we’ll see what happens,” he said. “Who knows where I’ll be anyway? I’m looking forward to that and when that time comes, step in there and be ready to go."

The next few years really will be interesting for Donovan -- a decade from now (and probably sooner), he'll be on television, covering the NFL for some network. That just seems like a lock. But between now and then, anything's fair game.

Although the way things shook out in the 2011 NFL Draft, you have to assume that just about anywhere McNabb goes he'll end up in a tutorial-type role, as virtually every team in the NFL is, at this point, either "set" at quarterback or heavily invested at the position following last weekend's festivities.

just to put it into terms
Terrell Owens 1000+ Receptions, 15,000+ yards, 150+ TDS(only 2 others with 150)
Fitzgerald 613 receptions, 8204 yards, 65 TDS
So another 387+ receptions, 6800 yards and 85 TDs and we'll be able to talk about how bad TO is

I know many of us hate TO, but saying Fitz is TEN TIMES better than him is ignorant. I also know stats aren't everything, but they are pretty important and if you look at TO's compared to Fitz, you will see these guys are pretty similar. TO has played longer and is older, so comparing their years right together is a bit unfair...but if you look over the years, you can actually argue TO is better than Fitz.

It's debatable. They both have been some of the greatest WRs in NFL history. I personally love Fitz, but to say he's better is debatable, but ten times better...that's just ignorant.

TxBucsFan....you should no longer open your mouth, you make everyone less intelligent when you do.  Larry Fitzgerald is 10x better than TO ?  Really?  Check the numbers out over their careers.  TO deserves more credit.  You can't judge a guy that's been doing it his entire career to a guy that has about half as many good seasons as TO.

Lets face it, McNabb has NEVER had a WR like Fitzgerald in his career EVER! Sure he had T. O. for a year, Fitzgerald is 10X better than Owens has EVER been. I think McNabb would have Pro Bowl numbers again, like already stated. Besides he gets a free try to practice with the Cardinals with the lockout.

I would rather have Jeff George than John Beck, and I will take Jeff George in the shape he is in today.
