The Minnesota Vikings are off to a slow but-not-dreadful 0-2 start to their season. While Donovan McNabb did next to nothing in their season-opening loss to the Chargers, the team still had the lead for most of the game. In the second game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the team again squandered a late lead to fall to 0-2.
So, while they haven’t won yet, they’ve been in both games. And McNabb says it’s not time to hit the panic button.
“When you’re 0-2, there’s no need to panic,” McNabb said. “But there’s a sense of urgency that has to take place….I think it was the time (for the meeting). It was one that needed to be addressed. Then we’ll see how it goes from there.”
Donovan made it clear that this wasn’t about pointing fingers and that he’s including himself in his criticism of the team’s start.
“If you’re going to speak, you have to be critical of yourself as well,” McNabb said. “There are a lot of things we need to clean up as a team and I’ll clean up myself. But everyone isn’t sitting there pointing fingers. This isn’t the time to be pointing fingers. I don’t believe in that anyway.”
You can rest assured that, regardless of who it’s from, there will be some finger pointing going on if they drop to 0-3 this week against the Detroit Lions.
