Hot Button: Donovan McNabb's impact

By Kevin Seifert

This week’s Hot Button question featured an NFC North flavor: What team made the best move at quarterback this summer?

ESPN’s John Clayton chose the Minnesota Vikings’ acquisition of Donovan McNabb, as did "NFL Live" analysts Mark Schlereth and Hugh Douglas in the video below. Clayton wrote McNabb gives the Vikings a chance at a nine-win season, which by definition puts them in the playoff hunt.

Schlereth is interested to see how McNabb plays when supported by the first “legit” running game of his career, while Douglas thinks the fresh start will serve McNabb well.

You know how I feel about this. But this time, no one asked me.
