McNabb: ‘Hilarious’ that he doesn’t know offense
Question of the Day
“That is hilarious to me. That is really funny to me,” McNabb said Tuesday during his weekly appearance on ESPN980. “For everyone who may not have heard any of this, it’s probably a shock to them.”
Those words aside, the six-time Pro Bowl quarterback spent most of his radio time trying to downplay the fallout from his benching in the final minutes of a loss to the Detroit Lions. Not surprisingly, McNabb said he was tired of the whole thing.
“It’s over to me, and I just look to move on,” he said.
Coach Mike Shanahan has offered varying explanations of the decision to bench McNabb, initially saying that backup Rex Grossman had a better grasp of the team’s 2-minute offense. Shanahan later said McNabb’s sore hamstrings had kept the team from practicing the hurry-up attack and that he was concerned McNabb didn’t have the “cardiovascular endurance” to run it as effectively as Grossman.
“Yes, I’m satisfied,” McNabb said. “You get what you ask for, and after that you put it behind you and move on.”
