It wouldn't hurt as bad if he was crushed by a player on a good team.
He probably just remembered that Norv Turner is still their head coach.
"I'm sorry, but as the press conference went on, I just realized that McNabb wasn't a good fit and that I really would prefer almost anyone else playing quarterback for us," said Vikings vice president Rick Spielman. "Nothing against Donovan. He's a good guy."
McNabb, who was smiling and excited when he was first introduced, sat stone-faced beside Spielman at the end as he learned that he had already lost his job.
"It's tough. It's a tough situation," said McNabb, minutes after the event. "I've been kicked in the teeth a lot during my career, often times out of nowhere and completely unprovoked. But this is probably the worst one. I didn't expect to get benched until we played two or three preseason games at the earliest."
