    We make the playoffs if we have the 2008 Albert and like others have stated he completely dominated the opposition.

    I think with the 2008 defense and what we have an offense now we definitely make the postseason.Once the playoffs hit though Locker can't afford to make any mistakes.I think if we face a team with a good defense it could go down to the wire.I could see us in a 13-10 type game easily.

    The crazy thing is we are one yard,a blocked FG and a fumble from having two or three Super Bowls.

    In '99 we were one yard short.....

    In 2000 we should've had a better FG kicker.We could've beat Baltimore if it weren't for Del Greco.Had the league's best record.That one hurt.

    In 2008 both Lendale White and Alge Crumpler fumbled away a game we should've won.That 2008 team would've won it all.Had the league's best record.This one hurts most because we got stopped once again by the Ratbirds.

    I hate the Ravens more than any other team in the league.2000 and 2008 this team should've had something to show for it.

    Although I don't believe in Locker much, I do think he can be just as good as McNair was. (not saying much)

    On the other hand... I don't think anyone we have can be as good as Haynesworth was in his contract year.

    IF we had the 2003 McNair on the 2008 team with the great Haynesworth dominate defense we had that year we would've easily won in 2008.

    Always wonder what might've happened if McNair stayed a couple more years until 2008.He could've easily won it all here in 2008 and walked away on top a champion.

    If 2003 McNair was the QB of this team...the defense wouldn't matter.

    ^Even though McNair needed great defenses to ever do anything?

    Even though I think Haynesworth was more dominant in his best year than McNair was in his, I had to vote McNair. Simply because QB is the most important position on the field. Sure Locker could have a good year. But I'd rather take the sure thing of McNair's best year than gamble with Locker. Also, if Locker really sucks this year then I'm not so sure '08 Haynesworth is enough to get us to the playoffs.

    Just a top 3 RB in the league, receiver drafted before Moss, Derick Mason, and one of the greatest TEs of our time...

    He was never asked to do much though.
