Donovan McNabb was scrambling as well as he had in years.
Only it wasn't on the field, avoiding would-be pass rushers. It was in his first interview of training camp in the media tent a few yards beyond the end zone at Lehigh University.
McNabb, who tries sometimes too hard to say all the right things and please everyone, came across contradictory and at times almost delusional.
In one of his first answers to a question about last season, McNabb was impressive.
"Any time you dwell on the past," he said, "your future isn't very bright."
Then, in the span of the next few minutes he mentioned not only last year's 8-8 season, but the 2004 Super Bowl season, the 2005 disastrous 6-10 season, and even his rookie year of 1999.
