    I Agree.. Does Billy Volek think that though?

    how many people think Fisher and Chow sabotaged Volek's playing this preseason. Chow knows BV likes to throw the long ball but yet they did very little of that. Chow is the dink and dunk stuff just like last yr. We will hear the same thing "we were one block away" or one short catch and run away" from breaking it.
    What if they played to Volek's strength this season and he looked great. Were they afraid that might mess up their plans for VY.
    To me it would have been in the Titans best interest to let BV lite it up then trade him when he was hot.
    I think KC know he is here for one yr and then steps back behind VY. BV didn't want to do that and the Titans knew it so they set him up to fail.

    i've said it once in another thread and saw someone else mentioned it as well...

    volek for donnie edwards...

    heck, i'd do volek and sirmon for donnie edwards...

    bullock, thornton and edwards would make a great and fast LB group...

    If this was the start of training camp I'm sure Volek would be in the thick of things trying to win the spot. Now even if Volek thought he was the better QB it doesn't matter. The coaches have made their decision. All this non-sense about Volek not competing is ridiculous. There is not going to be a competition. That is why Volek wants out. Collins won the competition based on Volek's play and Collin's resume.

    good statement...

    I think things would have gone much worse if Collins was here from the start of training camp...bringing him in now was probably the best thing to do, if he was going to be here eventually...

    If the Titans are serious about trading Volek, they'd want to showcase him tomorrow. I was a bit shocked to read Volek may not even go. If I were him, I'd want to see a couple of big plays I'd made on SportCenter just to see if it would help bring out more teams willing to trade.

    if volek breaks his arm in the final preseason game, it wuld be very hard to trade him. and given his injury history, it isnt all that hard to imagine.

    volek is ready to waive his no-trade clause too which means a deal could be imminent... check espn.com for the story

    Voleks best chance to play for another team is for him to be asked to be released now.

    I don't see how he'd have any value right now. Has he shown enough to be a more attractive option than some of the guys we'll see release this weekend?
