McNabb's turnaround must start now

Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb has the most talked about thumb since Little Jack Horner had his serendipitous run-in with a Christmas pie. The thumb got more ink
this week when McNabb, who has played the last three-and-a-half weeks with
his bruised digit taped, took off the bandages and practiced for the second
day without them.

Supposedly, his passes resembled dead pigskin rather than
dead ducks, but does that mean McNabb is ready to begin turning his
season around?

Not necessarily.
