    In Shock...

    You guys are amazing...stating they should CUT the franchise? Are you serious? Bud Adams has been a joke of a owner since he threatened to move the team to JAX only to have them renovate the Astrodome and they still left to TEN. We just had a purge of talent that crushed the team hoping to be stable for the cap and we are now only under 450K? WTF?? Instead of kicking off franchise players off your premises over money, maybe he should be given a pass since he constantly renogotiates his contracts yearly and does it without incident. The Titan brass is a joke. "PacMan" was a joke of a pick last year, and they still keep screwing up with these contracts. Why cut everyone a couple of years ago only to have the same horrible cap number? My son playing in franchise mode on Madden 2007 is better than these clowns. I have been a Oilers/Titans fan since 1985, but I am tired of the way the brass is handling key players....no respect and loyality and it is disgusting...especially doing this to the only QB who came close enough to win the Super Bowl...

    Umm... you do realise McNair is the reason we're not a good $13mill under the cap right? You also realise that it financially impossible to keep Rolle and Mason. Carter, Kearse and Robaire we probably could have kept, but their asking price was way above their worth.

    Just because somebody's been with the franchise a long time, it doesn't mean you just throw money out the window to please them.

    Agreed....but you can't blame McNair for signing the contract if it'll make him rich. It still leads to extremely poor management, and they are using McNair as the scapegoat....the execs are jokes!

    No, the problem is that McNair isn't as good as he was when he signed the contract...

    “I went through the same thing in 1997 with the Jets,” O’Donnell said. “I was working out at the facility every day, just like Steve. [Bill] Parcells wanted me to take a $2 million pay cut. When I refused, Parcells told me not to come back to the facility until they told me to. And they released me. For Steve, I think this means to either redo your deal, or you’re gone.”

    Mcnair should've never mentioned the word "retirement" two years ago. Every since he started talking about that he's been concidered unreliable. What if they decide to go with him and he retires after next season? Now we're stuck. Personally, I don't think there's a snow balls chance in hell of Steve being a Titans next year. If Joe Montana isn't to good to go play for the Chiefs than Steve isn't to good to go somewhere else either. It'll be sad to see him go but that's just how it goes. The fact is that we're going to pick a QB very high in the draft and there's no way they can afford to pay a premium player that's drafted so high a bunch of money to sit on the bench for more than a season. If Steve would agree to a one year deal and then retire he could remain a Titan. All of the sudden he has two or three more good years left in him after talking about retirement at the end of the 04' season. It ain't going to happen here, sorry...

    You can book it. After the draft is complete Floyd will offer Steve an amount to play in Tenn. What that amount will be, I don't know but I'll bet it won't be high enough to lure Steve back to the Titans. Similar to the Eddie situation, Mcnair won't except the deal and he'll move on.
