Not looking to be totally irresponsible with this item, but hey, I'm a blogger and I need to hit my wildass speculation quota for the week.
McNabb said he hired a new trainer in Arizona, where he lives in the offseason, and has incorporated more baseball-like activities into his workout routine to emphasize balance and getting the most out of his lower-body strength.
"I felt early on [last season] I used a lot of upper-body strength instead of using my legs," he said. "And not to say that I didn't have confidence in the legs, but now knowing how the whole body feels is like coming off the [pitcher's] mound.
"The guy that I train with [Brett Fisher] works with pitchers like Randy Johnson and Kerry Wood and a lot of other guys, as well. He's [Johnson] still throwing 90-something mph at 40-something years old. So, clearly something is working."
"He's looking good," wide receiver Kevin Curtis said after practice Wednesday. "But I think he has a little bit of a sore shoulder."
McNabb had a very un-McNabb like practice Tuesday. More often than not his throws were off-target.
Apparently it's not rust.
At the mandatory minicamp the Eagles shut McNabb down basically for the last two practices.
Afterward Andy Reid denied McNabb's arm or shoulder were sore or injured, explaining that the quarterback was removed from practice because he'd reached the "pitch count" the Eagles had set for him.
McNabb, however, was seen rubbing the arm and houlder as if it was hurt. He appeared to do the same thing Wednesday only with the shoulder.
