    A lot of talk about Young not being ready right now. Maybe a good point, and I probably agree with that but does anyone really expect McNair to play uninjured at this point in his career? I don't see it happening, I mean he has lost time to injury every year since early in his career(I'm sure star will no the last season he didn't). If/when that happens don't you think that surely Young would be the backup and see a lot of action whether or not Volek is still around(I don't think so)? I expect that Young's learning curve will be shorter than was McNair's simply because he played against much better teams in college than McNair did. So this theory that we wouldn't see much from this pick for a couple of years I believe is not sound.

    There could be Mauck still or someone else, but there isnt much harm in playing Vince Young a little bit over the season (assuming we are not in the playoffs) to get him started.

    I agree with you BigTT :ha:

    Vince Young could conceivably see the field of play this season and maybe early into it really

    heck, i'd bring the kid out even with McNair under center. or let him come in on some short-to-go sits

    then again, knowing Steve's injury history he might even notch a few starts. Don't necessarily throw him into the fire .... but warm his toes up a little

    I think whichever QB we pick will see a few starts possibly 5 or more. Hopefully they will be up for the challenge.

    It is possible a guy like Couch brought in to be our 3rd QB is the best option in year one if we needed a QB for a few games because Mac was hurt. IMO Young should sit unless he is brought in on a few special plays to take advantage of his legs. If we end up with Leinart he could play if needed with his style and Chow's offense.

    If we get Young or Leinhart I can't see either one of them playing at all in their first season. I wouldn't expect them to come in as the number two QB. I could be wrong but I'd expect them to sit for a whole season.

    I would prefer the Carson Palmer route, especially with Young. I think a year of watching is better than being thrown to the fire.
