    I doubt we would have drafted Young if we had acquired Culpepper. I dont think you bring in a guy in the prime of his career, and then go out and draft someone to take his spot in a year or so. But, I not convinced Culpepper is really that good, so I am happy we got Young, because I think he will end up better than Culpepper.

    I would not call a guy who has been injured the last two season with knee problems that have noticeably slowed him down in the prime of his career. Plus he has had issues with protecting the ball and was saddled with Moss his entire career(iunflated stats). Mini Hands was not going to be our long term answer and I still think we draft Young as the future and let him mentor under Culp.

    Im not a big fan of Culpepper so I am not defending him and I am glad we went the route we did. But he is still a pretty young QB and if he stays healthy should be a decent QB for another 6-8 years. I cant see going that route, and then turning around and drafting another QB with the 3rd pick. But regardless, its a hypothetical and didnt happen so no point in really arguing over something neither one of us can prove.

    Surely if the whole Volek/Fisher thing was going on, it would have been known to the players and if so, I doubt it would be used to settle the 'dissention' in the locker rooms as they would most likely know what has been going on.

    I do find it funny some people here know more of the story with less information then some Titans personnel.

    And I am glad we didn't get Culpepper.

    The reason why we complain is because the Scrub is better than the starter. If KFC was decent we would all be like, whatever. Come on, BV would have atleast got a first down in the first half if not the first quarter.

    Fisher liked collins...

    Volek did some irritating things but it is not enough to basically get fired in this day and age. I think fisher genuinely liked collins and especially liked the idea of collins QB-ing his team.

    Had you asked fisher in may who he preferred collins or volek he would have truthfully answered collins. I think that played a big part in all of this.

    Whether fisher liked collins simply because of his experience or really liked his game i think fisher saw him as an upgrade.

    must be possible because it is the 10th lowest, hard to believe that 9 other QB's had a rating less...6 or 7 had 0.0 ratings :ha:

    I remember one Browns QB was intercepted 6 ot 7 times in a game once.

    That must have been a 0 rating.

    Big Ben had a QB rating of 30 in the Superbowl.
