    What's wrong with having Chow prep Vick for the big time ?
    I mean he's done it with quite a few successful QB's
    what exactly is Kerry Collins / Patrick Ramsey actually going to teach him ?

    It's just a matter of getting a fellow QB's knowledge and experience to learn from in addition to Chow. Plus, it's just one more person to help. During games, for instance, Chow and Johnson are a bit busy with other things, but a backup QB could be conversing with Vince.

    I don't really like Collins for that job, but I think Vinny Testaverde would be a good person for that role.

    Something else i was just thinking about....If we bring in a vet i.e Collins, does that mean Volek is our #1, Collins #2, and VY our emergency QB. To me it would kind of a stretch to have Young the number 3 pick in the draft as your emergency #3 starter.

    I think making Young the #3 is fine. You don't want him in the game unless it's an emergency. But I believe once the #3 goes in, #1 and #2 can't go back in.

    A weird rule, actually. It means a guy like Mauck could not hold for the FG or anything last year.

    Some of you guys might think I'm crazy but is Ty Detmer still in the league? He would be perfect, he already knows Chow's system from his days at BYU and he is a high character guy that would help Vince and not hinder him. He is also a guy no one will ever try and build a team around so he doesn't have delusions of grandeur

    Yeah, the Eagles already tried that. And they failed.

    Ty detmer...

    Still technically in the league but maybe not for long. He hasn't seen action since 2001. Not a player that could help us.
