Who was better than McNair? Most teams are only as good on offense as their QB play. It's a chicken or egg debate. Did the Titans not utilize their talent due to their not being enough of it to begin with? Did Kinney have a great season because he is a top TE or that teams played deep with 14-point leads and allowed him to catch all the short stuff he wanted? I agree with you on Troupe. He started out the season looking to be ready to break out. Chow and the Titans should have found a way to get the ball in his hands more. But Troupe also did some really boneheaded things such as spike a live football and disappeared for stretches during games. Still, you have to get your playmakers the ball. I also agree with you on the OL. I think it is a much bigger concern right now than Volek at QB. If I am the Titans, I drop Piller and move Bell inside and give the RT spot to Stewart. With the exception of Mawae, you'd have a core group who would gain experience this season and be much more improved in '07 when Young is ready to take the field. Once the Titans knew they'd get a top QB in the draft, they understood the timing was right to make the change.
