McNabb Thoughts

Note: If there is a man to discuss Donovan McNabb’s new situation, it’s Adam Caplan, a Philly native and the former editor of footballinjuries.com.

Here’s Adam’s Take:

Much has been made locally about Donovan McNabb and his sore right throwing shoulder. McNabb is expected to miss about two weeks of throwing in their OTAs, so that could push him on the shelf until the final week of June. The OTAs are over in a few weeks.

While it’s only two weeks, he could certainly use the work with his receivers and tight ends. Keep in mind last year at this time McNabb was still limited somewhat from coming back from ACL surgery. It should be noted McNabb is expected to work with his receivers in Arizona at the end of the month or into July, as he usually does every year at this time. But I’m not certain that he got that work in last year because he was coming back from serious knee surgery.

I didn’t realize it until I looked at his numbers but McNabb hasn’t thrown more than 19 TDs in a season since 2004. That probably explains why he’s going off the board in round seven in early drafts. [...]

  • The Prince Connection: Rodgers and Nelson July 7, 2014
    If you follow along over at my Twitter account @FG_Dolan (shameless plug), you’ve probably noticed my undying love for Jordy Nelson, and the fact that I’d happily welcome him onto any of my fantasy teams this year. First of all, he’s madly productive as is: he hauled in 85/1314/8 last year and averaged 16.5 FPG in a PPR league. That was good enough to rank h […]
