    They all would have been logical until one by one they filled their needs. I think someone of the teams who have added a FA QB this week could still draft one of the three, but if you take them out, it leaves Raiders, Cardinals, Ravens, pretty much. I guess we'll see what happens.

    There are some teams with starting QBs on shaky footing, a few with so-so QBs and no backups, and then there is Oakland...

    Schaubs career passing rating is 49%

    Like Eli Manning last year- his stats look pretty good until you look at the completion rating. Thats what we began to saw in Eli - he couldn't get the ball there..

    On the other hand look at the progression from his first year to his second!! From a 42 passer rating to a 98. Yes his completions are low, but he doesn't have good receivers and he probably doesn't get to work out with a lot (unlike Billy).

    If we trade Volek now, does it show our hand at #3? We have sent out signals that we are not overly thrilled with any of the three QB's in the draft by inquiring about Culpepper and Schaub....signals that we might not take one at #3. Not sure if the Jets, Cards, and Raiders are buying that or not. If Volek goes, we lose leverage renegotiating McNair and it becomes (more) obvious that we go QB in round one. We won't trade Volek until McNair's situation is resolved unless an offer is too good to pass/wait on (highly unlikely).

    Well sending Reese, Chow, Johnson, Ackerley and Snead to Cutler's proday is probably somewhat of a giveaway that we are interested. Only ones missing were Fish and Bud himself...

  8. Actually, his career passer rating is 68.8. You really can't gauge his talent basd on passer ratings considering he's only thrown 134 passes in his entire professional career. Add in the fact that he was never allowed to keep his rythm by playing back-to-back games, his stats are not that bad.

    His start against New England last season in which he had 298 yards, 3 TDs, 112.1 Passer Rating deserves some recognition.

    Geez.

    Mcnair is better than Schaub, mcnair is better than volek. Mcnair is better than half the starting nfl QBs. We don't need to make some deal to get a QB we already have one. We need to make a deal to keep steve mcnair in a titan uniform for the next three years.

    As george said in seinfeld after getting that job with the yankees. I'm back baby!

    The titans are back!

    Steve mcnair is OUR QB! He belongs here and he knows that. He can win here. Let's get this guy to a new cap friendlier deal and move on!
