    take the top 5 guys in the draft

    who do you think is the "SAFE" pick ?

    Reggie Bush is explosive, but can he be an every down back ?
    Vince Young is electric, but will he be able to throw overhand or 3step ?
    Matt Leinart .... is he just a product of the system ?
    D'Brickashaw Ferguson is an OL coaches dream and should be solid
    AJ Hawk is a monster but is he that much better than the rest of the class ?

    Keep in mind, this isn't a "who's better" poll
    but "who's the better value / who will last the longest" kinda gig

    we are trying to determine which of these guys will make the biggest impact over the longest amount of time.

    yes sir, ..... it might stir the pot a little
    it certainly gets your mind dancing

    it's like playing GM simulator
    it's an investment outlook
    it's great to get the flashy player
    if the production level falls too soon, it wasn't a very good investment

    what's interesting is that :
    (so far) no votes have been cast for Reggie or Vince

    just thought about someting else

    McNair's contract negotitation could have alot to do with who we pick

    obviouslly, if McNair talks fail and we trade Volek (doubtful that BOTH happen) then we would need the QB who's most capable of coming in and starting at some point this year

    which might <edit> Young and support Leinart

    you have to think longterm instead of just this year. we're going to struggle with a rookie qb regardless of who it is, might as well make it the more talented guy.

    Even though he is not as flashy because he is a OT, Jeff Fisher has said that Ferguson has more upside then any other OT he has seen at this stage of his career.

    Jeff looks at it like this :
    what's more important - the protection ,or who you're trying to protect

    i can guarantee that Jeff's looking for Hoppy's replacemement

    (he's my guess at most useful for the longest amount of time)
    he had Kiwi runnin' in circles trying to get by him


    it's not a sexy pick ..... but prudent

    you'll know within 2-3 years whether he's gonna work out or not
    how long are you willing to wait before you start that clock?

    there's some leverage with Matt (knowledge of oc / system)
    he's the most "pro-ready"
    he's the most 'Titans' prepared
    it's entirely possible that he can come in and perform to a level similar to that McNair displayed in '05, which would be an accomplishment for a rookie

    it's a weird feeling though, I'm not sure I trust him
    I'm not overly familiar with his career. but he's done some scary #$*& lately. in the Rose he looked like he was forcing it. I said "this is what Matt will look like against NFL defenses" - which was medi-ocre at best

    it's weird .... i think he'd have an uphill climb to keep fans pleased
    whereas Vince might get a little more slack due to his electricity

    D'Brick firmly in the lead with 60% of the vote

    not a single vote cast for Vince Young
