Mornhinweg: 'You don't let one or two plays throw you out of rhythm'

After listening to offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg Sunday, it's pretty obvious he thinks players disrupt rhythm, not substitutions and formations.

He has tried to relay that to Donovan McNabb, who in the preseason game last Thursday rather animatedly gestured for Mornhinweg to put away the package of Mike Vick wildcat plays and get back to basics - and into a rhythm.

Mornhinweg said he and McNabb "did have a quick conversation about that."

Apparently the result of the quickie was they will have to agree to disagree.

"We do our jobs," Mornhinweg said. "I understand, but that's secondary. You are not going to let one or two plays throw us out of the rhythm and that's at every position. You know, receivers like to get into a rhythm, too, and they're in and out. (Running backs) go in and out. We change personnel groups virtually every play."

And yes, the quarterback position is treated differently than the receivers or the backs although according to Mornhinweg, it shouldn't hurt for the few plays Vick gets.

"I understand the rhythm and al those types of things," Mornhinweg said. "It's not going to disrupt our rhythm. It won't."

It won't. So knock it off.
