Donovan McNabb was benched at the end of last season while playing for the Washington Redskins.  Head coach Mike Shanahan elected to start Rex Grossman instead of McNabb for the final three games of the season.  Now, Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier has elected to start rookie Christian Ponder instead of Donovan McNabb.

The Minnesota Vikings are currently 1-5 this season.  McNabb has completed 60.6% of his passes for 1,026 yards (26th in the NFL) with 4 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. 

Although McNabb has put up very impressive career numbers (37,276 yards to go along with 234 touchdowns and 117 interceptions in 13 seasons), the Syracuse product has been on a noticeable decline the last two seasons.  He threw more interceptions than touchdown passes for the first time in his career last season (14 TDs, 15 INTs) as a member of the Redskins.
