    SUMMARY: Tennessee Titans owner Bud Adams places a lot of the blame for the team's standoff with Steve McNair at the feet of agent Bus Cook. "Steve has been a fantastic player for us. He’s led us to a Super Bowl. We want to always be a friend with him, but it’s kind of gotten a little bit ragged toward the [end],” Adams said. “I always bring that on the agents, not on Steve, the agents — that’s their bread and butter." Adams went on to say the situation is close to what the team went through with Eddie George a few years ago. "I think he’d have to get his salary down. That’s what we’ve asked him to do is cut his salary down. Steve Underwood and Floyd Reese are working on that," Adams said. "I would have rather seen Eddie George in our uniform rather than a Cowboys uniform, but it didn’t happen. We wanted him to stay too."

    Bring a shovel because both sides are providing plenty of BS.

    Wasn't Bus Cook Eddie's agent too?

    No. I'm pretty sure his only clients are McNair, Favre and Cutler.

    this situation provides too many headaches.

    it needs to be resolved so everyone can just move on.
