Default Clayton: Vikings to pursue McNabb if Favre leaves

Just heard that Clayton is reporting that if Favre retires, the Vikings will pursue McNabb.

I've heard that too...I bet that if we were to bid on him too, the Eagles would rather send him to the AFC than the NFC.

that should be interesting considering Favre won't make a call until half way through training camp . . . when exactly does he think this would all transpire as Favre hijacks his team once again

I would imagine it would be a tough decision for him at this point. Right now, he probably doesn't want to return, but knows that come July, he's going to start wavering on that.

Smart move by the Vikes, this forces Favre's hand. He's either got to declare and come back or be left off a team with a legit Superbowl shot.

Wouldn't it be cool to see a thread title "Clayton: Broncos to pursue McNabb... because Orton is just average." I'm just saying.

Minnesota is a likely destination because of the Childress connection (he was the OC in Philly for much of McNabb's career) not to mention the Vikings QB coach who was with McNabb at Syracuse. That being said, the Eagles would probably prefer to ship him out of the conference.

What a great move by the Vikes if they can pull it off. People in Philly would freak!

Source: Warner announcement Friday

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner will announce Friday at a news conference whether he plans to retire, according to a Cardinals source.
The widespread assumption -- one that hasn't changed for weeks -- is that the 38-year-old Warner will step away from the game.


Warner

One possible indication of Warner's intentions is that he already has begun gathering his family so they can attend Friday's news conference at the team's training facility, according to sources.
Warner also has another added motivation for a quick decision: He has multiple promotional appearance commitments during Super Bowl week in Miami. Rather than answer retirement questions then, Warner would prefer to remove the focus from his future as quickly as possible so it's not an issue next week, according to a source.
Since the Cardinals were eliminated from the playoffs in a 45-14 loss to the New Orleans Saints on divisional playoff weekend, Warner has spent his days huddling over his decision with family and his agent, Mark Bartelstein.
Warner has been voted to five Pro Bowls, won two NFL MVP awards and one Super Bowl and became the second quarterback in history to throw more than 100 touchdown passes for two NFL franchises.
In the wild-card round against the Green Bay Packers, Warner didn't play like someone at the end of his career. He threw for 379 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions during Arizona's 51-45 overtime victory.
But next week in the divisional round, during an interception return, Saints defensive end Bobby McCray leveled Warner with a hit that left the quarterback with a bruised chest.
Earlier this season, Warner suffered a concussion. It was at least his third concussion, and he later estimated it was quite possibly his fifth. Whatever the number was, it raised questions for Warner about his future.
Warner also had the added memory of watching Cardinals wide receiver Anquan Boldin sprawled out on the field from a hit that left him with a broken jaw last season. Warner told ESPN's Rick Reilly earlier this month that he contemplated retiring after witnessing that hit.
"What happened to Q," Warner said, "was personal for me. You realize you're one hit from something that affects you long, long-term."
Warner still has a year remaining on a two-year, $23 million contract.

I think McNabb lives in Arizona.

He does have a home there, and trains there a lot in the offseason.

I would love to have Mcnabb over Orton. I would feel a lot better about Mcd if he could make that happen.

Tarvaris is just a faster, darker version of Orton.

He has no idea where his passes are going either.

Oh my God!!! The world is ending because a team is saying they are going to pursue McNabb!!! Ohhhhh the misery!!!!
