    Some folks may not think McNair was great, but he was a great QB in my books.

    Put aside the stats and McNair was a QB that I trusted and loved watching play for us.

    Here's what I hated about McNair:

    1. He wasn't a good passer.
    2. When he sucked, he used the "I'm hurt" excuse WAY too much. If you're too hurt to play decent - sit out.

    What I liked about McNair:

    1. He gave 120% effort.
    2. Could run.

    I liked Fisher, but he did play favorites it seems like.

    I'm not even talking about Vince though, I'm talking about several other players. But honestly, after this FA period, maybe some of the problem was with Reinfeldt as well.

    I just remember Billy "the kid" Volek throwing a few 500 yard games while filling in for an injured Mac-9. I kinda liked him as regarded as one of the best back up qbs in the league during the mid
    2000s. Then he went to SD and disapeared off the radar.

    I was at a game I think back n 04 at Oakland where
    Volek and yes Kerry Collins both threw for 400 each in a shootout that was fun ... Little did I know Kerry would be joining us years later.

    Volek took over for a declining McNair, got the green light to freelance in a lost season and padded his stats in 4 straight losses, one in which he posted a 19 QB rating, big whoopie doo, nothing to see here, move on.

    Considering how many things you hate in your life, it's no surprise you feel the need to constantly hate on McNair. And for what really?

    Still hate TN? Still living here? No surprise there.

    my list...
    1. McNair .... doubt I'll ever put a TN signal caller above Mac 9
    2. V-Y .... I know he isn't popular around here, but I loved watching him play
    3. HAAS .... Played well, overall. Was a class act during his tenure.
    4. O'Donnell ....Excellent game manager when called upon. Nothing flashy, just got it done
    5. Volek .... Was fun to watch him sling that football,.Wish he'd have got a shot (POST MCNAIR)
    6. LOCKER .... in time I see him moving up the list, just haven't seen much to get him there..yet
    7.COLLINS...I'll give him credit for holding it down for awhile, but really bored the hell outta me.
    8.RUSTY... always be my fave 3rd stringer QB..that one start was a shame. lol
    9. (HONORABLE MENTION) INGLE MARTIN...I love my TN players

    anyone else hasn't mattered much to me
