Donovan McNabb believes he's still got game. Starting NFL quarterback game. According to SI.com's Truth & Rumors, the 13-year veteran passer, sacked by the Minnesota Vikings midway through the 2011 season, said the following on Wednesday during a television interview about his future:"I see three teams in the NFL, right now, that I feel like I can add a little bit of flavor to it from what they have," McNabb said. "I won't mention those teams. But, if the phone rings, there will be a lot of decisions to make on that."Even if folks wanted to give McNabb a pass for his numerous bounced throws during his one season with the Redskins because he was ultimately deemed a poor fit in the Shanahans' offense, he was less potent with the Vikings.His 6.58 yards per attempt ranked ashis lowest since 2002, and McNabb was on paceto throwa meager 11 touchdowns.As to his notion that three NFL teams could use his services, we can only guess.The Dolphins are reportedly looking for help, but either of the Matts (Flynn or Moore) makes for significantly better and younger fits for the retooling club. The Seahawks need help, but McNabb right nowis Tavaris Jackson, just considerably older and less mobile.If the Jets are going to send Mark Sanchez packing for a 30-something passer, it will be Peyton Manning. The Browns stick with Colt McCoy or duel the Redskins for RG3. McNabb-to-Arizona rumorshave existed for some time, and the Cardinals could part ways with Kevin Kolb, but dumping the ex-Eagles QB to add the man he used to back up would be so bizarre.And, no, he's not coming back to the Redskins.
Now, we can only assume McNabb's general manager vision projects himself as a starter. However, considering the lack of viable No. 2 quarterbacks, McNabb could certainly function in that role for a playoff contender if wanted.
