A schism appears to be forming between Leslie Frazier and Donovan McNabb. Too over-dramatic? Okay then, let’s just say there appears to be a bit of disagreement between coach and QB when it come to the nature of McNabb’s struggles.
Frazier reiterated on Wednesday his Monday statement that the Vikings have found something mechanically wrong with McNabb’s throws and mean to work on those issues in practice. But McNabb on Wednesday flatly denied there is anything mechanically amiss, putting the blame instead on rushed throws caused by lack of pass protection.
So in one fell swoop McNabb contradicted his coach and threw his offensive line under the bus. Would if Donovan were as good at running the offense as he is at creating controversies.
To be fair, though McNabb did deny having mechanical issues, he did admit the importance of looking critically at his own performance. But mostly he wants us to look critically at the offensive line’s performance and realize that those guys really suck and that’s why he can’t complete a pass for more than 10 yards.
Thanks Donovan. That cleared it up.
