The Linc - Power of positive thought

Despite Code, McNabb Shouldn't Play Though Pain
The code is the unwritten, but fully understood, football ethic that says players play through pain. It is accepted and even celebrated as part of the macho toughness that defines the men who play in the National Football League.

New Orleans Saints won't complain if Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb sits out -
"That's going to probably be the biggest difference, just the fact that McNabb is a guy that can scramble a little bit better than Kolb can. Kolb's a guy that probably will sit in the pocket and probably still has a good enough arm to make all of the throws necessary for that offense. "You would expect them to utilize more of their other weapons if Kolb's in the game so they take a little bit of pressure off of him. But I'm not calling their game plan for them. I'm just saying that as far as the mobility aspect, McNabb is a little more mobile than Kolb is."
