Even when TO wasn't there McNabb was putting up decent numbers. 3200 yards, 20 TD, 3-5 rushing TD's, and 10 INT's isn't that bad. That was about his average without Owens. As long as they get a decent WR in there and McNabb doesn't get hurt, he should be a nice pick...not an early one like you said, but better than most QB's.
The reason Bulger disappoints is because his line sucks, and he ends up getting hurt. The WR's always put up big numbers. The only reason to not take him high this year is because of the new coach. We don't know if they'll stay with the same "throw first" philosophy anymore, so his stats may go down further next year. He's probably not worth an early pick either anymore.
The more you look and think about it, Manning in the late 1st is not a bad pick at all next year since the difference between other QB's should be bigger. Don't forget about Hasselbeck...if teams start focusing on Alexander more it'll give him a better chance to throw to open WR's.
