Morris Still Wary Of McNabb

While much of the focus for Sunday’s game will be on Vikings’ running back Adrian Peterson, Buccaneers head coach Raheem Morris knows that Tampa Bay can’t forget about 13-year veteran Donovan McNabb. In his Thursday afternoon press conference Morris commented on the wily vet.

“That's Donovan McNabb man,” Morris said. “We know what he was [and] what he was able to do in Philly. We know what he did to us last year in Washington. He almost beat us last year in Washington. We're going to play Donovan McNabb -- a consummate pro. He will never blame anybody. He's been a guy that has been under the gun his whole career. On draft day he came in under the gun. So he's a player and we know he throws a great fade ball. It only takes a couple of those to beat you so you better get out there. He can change his fortunes in a hurry. Just go out there and play against a really good football player.”

While the former Eagle and Redskin isn’t the same running quarterback that has given the Buccaneers fits over the years, Morris is aware he can still hurt you if not contained. McNabb, who is in his 13th NFL season, has rushed for 3,432 in his career.

“McNabb can run when he wants to,” Morris said. “He's one of those guys. He's just an athlete. He's [like] one of those basketball players when you go out and play. You don’t think he can move on a streetball court and then he kills you for thirty. He's one of those kind of guys. He doesn’t really want to run. He wants to throw the ball down the field, but don’t give him anything or he'll take it.”

    I think the Bucs are fortunate to go up against McNabb early before he really learns everything and settles in. We have a good opportunity. Win Bucs win!

    Iam glad coach Morris is not thinking it is a push over game. Some of the critics are saying that if Tampa is a playoff team they must win these games on the road. Again in a few articles ago I mention that I wish Tampa had open on the road, and then host Minn at Home but Tampa has to play close to get a shot in the closing minutes to pull this one out and be 1 and 1. Because they are a young offensive team and still looking to push buttons to run over defenses.GO Bucs
