    He would obviously be the 2nd-stringer for at least this year.

    And if you can name a player we can draft in the 3rd round that would be of more value to our team in the near or long term, I would be happy to rethink it.

    I don't know about you guys, but I don't want to be in the top 10 drafting next year. If you think Steve will be healthy the whole year or that a rookie qb will be ready to step in, then you're probably kidding yourself.

    For the past 3 years, McNair has been out with some sort of injury forcing us to use back-ups. Johnson looked good a couple of years ago and so did Volek, but things have changed. Keeping McNair, (One-Hit-Away-From-Retirement), without a quality back-up is going to screw up any chance of an 8-8 season if Steve can not stay healthy.
    If we draft a QB, I don't see the Titans carrying 4 QBs on the roster. Mauck will have to be let go. If Volek leaves/gets traded, then another vet will have to be signed for a year or so.

    As gay as I think Jeff Garcia is... I think I'd take him over Volek.
    I dunno. I'm kinda whimsical... Where McNair may be a hit away from retirement... Volek sometimes seems to be a hit away from a rehabiltation hospital. Then again... I may just be a hater.

    is this about FA $ for D if McNair is cut or dealt or a vet QB?
