    Any way you look at it, Bus Cook wants McNair to be paid $10 million for the 2006 season. Is he worth it?

    I wish I knew how far that would go in the way of talent to help this team.
    Can't really put a price on a good education...

    I have a hard time justifying it when he is on the backside of his career... add-in the fact that we're sitting 3rd in the draft with a'least 2 legit projected franchise Quarterback and a 3rd that could go either way. I don't see us in the position to take advantage of this kind of opportunity anytime soon. 95' was the last time and it established ourselves for 10 plus years.

    I see no advantages to using the cap space now as opposed to later. In fact it is better used later when we are more attractive as a team. McNair is our best player and we have the money to give him. Why not. It does not slow our progress any. We are a better team with McNair than Volek and some retreads that the top tier teams did not want.

    not really, it took Steve 3 years (as a QB) to get going and he's slowed considerably in the last 2

    realistically <gulp> Steve has never really been an "ELITE" QB
    he only threw for 20+ TD's 'thrice' and never threw more than 24
    he threw for 16 or less TD's in 8 of his 11 years
    he threw for over 3,000 yards only 5 times and never over 3,400
    he hasn't rushed for more than 140 yards in 3 years
    he's only played an entire season 3 times in his career
    and he has rushed for only TWO td's in the last 2 years

    as much as I love the guy, it's time to cut losses

    put this resume in front of an NFL GM and ask for $10million
    it might sound something like this "Bahaaahhahahahahaaahhhaaaaa!"

    What about the ability to aquire another high caliber quality LB to give our defense some teeth over the long run. A first time UFA coming in...

    I hope we can get the best of both words.

    Is that basically the $9 mil salary and the $1 mil option bonus?

    And what would that take us to in terms of cap savings?

    I think $7-8 is fair. Give him some TD bonus, yardage bonus, run bonus. I doubt he goes for that, it's kind of insulting. $10M only if it is saving us some money.

    But I don't think getting rid of him is smart, either. It's more damaging than losing EG. Doubt McNair is holding us hostage. Cook has been relatively quiet for years, and now his cycle is coming around again. His chest has gotten soft from not throwing it around for so long.

    Cook reps Young...this is of no impact? :hmm:
    A tale of two backs in EG & JB?
    Handing off a legacy?:greedy:

    Priceless. He's staying.
    Reece lacks the balls to shove McNair off the boat.
    They need to put something in his contract
    about some secret off shore account.
    That'll get-r-done.
