Sorry people but this is not all on McNabb. He did not play very well but he did not play 39 yards bad. The play calling in the second half was brutal and could a receiver maybe come back to the ball if McNabb has to throw it a little early due to pressure. One good thing, the Buc,s defense will probably be listed as ques- tionable from sore abs from watching our game film.

Man, McNabb is really taking a lot heat for this ons. He probably deserves it. But still, he isn't the only one to blame. The play calling and Offense line was definitely not up to par to say the least.

It IS all on McNabb! 100% his fault. Unless you want to include some blame for Frazier, for being a moron. He wanted McNabb and he gotem and they will both be gone midseason. PATHETIC!

Everybody on the team has to acknowledge fault. It starts with the coaches and on down. The players can only try and execute what the coaches give them. Against Dallas I thought we played really well with our starters and supposedly we weren't showing all of our stuff. Maybe we should go back to that and quit trying to be fancy with the supposed "Wildcat". Musgrave has to call alot better game, way too predictable.

Agree with most posters here, not all McNabb's fault. We'll just have to sit back and watch this weekend how the game plan works out and how he performs. These next 2 games will be important against 2 quality teams (YES Detroit).

We'll see how well the coaches respond to not only trying to fix what the players did wrong but also taking a hard look at what they could have done better. Only time will tell what the coaches themselves are made of.

Ok Strib, we get it. The Vikings passing game stunk. Instead of going on and on trying to be rabble rousers, how about something insightful about how they can fix it or about the next game. Enough already.

Replace Rivers or Brady for McNabb in that game and the Vikings still lose. Musgrave basically told the Chargers defense what play was coming every down, and yet some people still think it was all on McNabb. I have no idea if McNabb is good or not because we didn't ask him to show it that game. Here's a crazy idea, try throwing a swing pass to the RB or a quick throw to the TE on 1st and 10 now and again. It's amazing what mixing up the play calls can do to slow down a defense. Barring that, just direct snap it to AP every down instead of asking McNabb to play miracle worker on 3rd and 8 with 2 seconds to pass.
