Donovan McNabb's Fallback Option: Being A 'Power Guard' For The Wizards

Okay, Donovan McNabb is kidding when he tells Dan Hellie that, if there's an NFL work stoppage, he could play for the Wizards. He's not Brandon Marshall.

How do I know he's kidding? Read his description of the role he'd play for the Wizards, via Dan Steinberg:

"Well, we just drafted John Wall, [have] Gilbert Arenas, they're looking for kind of a power guard that can come in, get a little physical down low," he said. "I can go play with the Wizards if things don't really work out. Drop about 10, 15 basketball pounds...slap some boards a little bit, get up on the rim."

Basketball fans will tell you that there is no such thing as a "power guard." I'm sure McNabb himself knows that; hence, he has to be kidding.

(Then again, somewhere, Ladell Eackles is saying to himself "Damn, with my body type, I really should have tried to be more of a "power" guard.").
