Former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb is apparently among the critics of Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler.

According to sources, Donovan McNabb does not believe pro-bowl quarterback Jay Cutler has the ability to win in the National Football League, and compares him to the Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo.

“He’s the Tony Romo of the Midwest. We can talk about arm talent, we can talk about being able to throw a ball through a wall. He can put up 280, 340 yards passing, but you look across the board he’s got two interceptions in a game that cost them 14 points or so. That hurts a football team,” said McNabb.

The former six time pro-bowler also had the following to say. “Can he play in this league? Absolutely, he’s proven that. But a quarterback is measured by your body of work, meaning your wins and losses record, the numbers you put up. And the end-all be-all is how many playoff wins do you have? How many playoff appearances do you have? If you only have one to show for almost a decade of play that means you can’t lead your team to the playoffs.”

“Then the question is why? Because you’re so talented, the potential is there, but why haven’t you been able to do it? You can only say for so long that it’s been the talent. They have some talent around Cutler, that’s never been the issue. Now can you put it all together? To be honest, the answer is no,” continued McNabb.

Not to take a cheap shot, however, McNabb, a  five-time participant in the NFC Championship game, should know something about playoff disappointment. He was just 1-4 as a starter in those games.
