If you haven't heard yet, the Washington Redskins announced that they will be benching Donovan McNabb for the reminder of the year, and look at this, It was a month ago that He signed that 5-Year, 70+ Million Contract. This Benching pretty much signals that McNabb is on his way out of the Country's Capital, and letting him go wouldn't hurt the Redskins as much as you think it would. With Favre nearing the end of his amazing career, riding off in the sunset (I guess, he hasn't had a good 2010 season),T-Jack on his way out of Minnesota because he FUCKING SUCKS and didn't learn anything from the Old Gunslinger, and Joe Webb getting a chance to prove himself (which I like, give the kid a shot),IMO, I think the first Priority for the Vikes this offseason is to get a LEGIT QB, either from the draft or free agency. I have came up with 2 possible scenarios I think the Vikes FO should do.
1) Get a QB in the First Round in April's Draft
Andrew Luck: I doubt he'll be on the Board when we're on the clock but Hey, stranger things have happen in the draft before (EX: Aaron Rodgers waiting until pick 24 (I think) before he got drafted by the Packers),Easily the best QB in the 2011 draft class
Jake Locker: I like the guy, he can run, he can throw ( can be inaccurate at times), but I think he has the potential to be special in the NFL.
Ryan Mallett: Big Arm, Accurate when he wants to be, has Mental Problems at times but I think those problems can be fixed, NFL-Ready if those problems are fixed
Cam Newton: I've kept on saying that getting this guy would be a risk/reach because of his Off the field issues, Be he's a super-athlete, he can do anything, Throw,Run,and Catch (LOL)
2) Get either McNabb or Michael Vick from Free Agency and draft a QB in the later rounds of the draft and have that guy and Webb develop from one of those two, I hugely doubt the Eagles will let Vick go because of the season he's having but you never know and With McNabb getting benched, he's very likely out his way out of D.C.
Here are some non-1st round QBs
Andy Dalton: I really like this guy, he should be the first QB the Vikes should consider drafting if they go this route
Kellen Moore: The guy is Accurate and Efficient, may not have the big arm but he makes it up with his great Accuracy
Colin Kaepernick: I really like this guy too, If we get Vick, this guy can learn alot from him when it comes to being a Dual-Threat QB
Nick Foles: Big Guy from Arizona, good arm, really good season at Arizona
some other QBs: Landry Jones (Okla), Brandon Weeden (Okla St.), Robert Griffin III (Baylor), Christian Ponder (Flordia St.)
