    Compared to whom?

    Are we comparing an old, one-hit-away-from-retirement, McNair to a young Brees and saying that they can BOTH last another 4 years? Give me a break. McNair brought up the 'R' word, not the FO.

    IMO , these players are talking out their rear end when they say they want to retire here or anywhere else , loyalty ? , the bottom line is they go where the money is , just as i would in my profession. its a job to them , nothing more. it's all about the money !

    Ok..call me an apologist or whatever, but let's remember this is the player that has given everything for this team. I am by no means saying we should keep him at $23 Mill. just for the warm and fuzzies, but I don't think that his agent coming out and saying what he said is reason to start calling him a bum, or telling him to hit the door, or whatever. The best scenerio would be for McNair's contract to be reworked, he grooms the next QB for a year and retires a Titan. Just my opinion and I am sure some will get all bent out of shape, but I do know that I am not the only one who wants to see McNair to retire a Titan.

    At the risk of being cast as "condascending". Read the first four words. that says it all for me.

    Yeah. McNair was dissapointing last year. But who on our team wasn't? He's still the best QB on our roster by a country mile. Our chances of success this year don't dissapear, but they sure shrink without a healthy #9.

    I'm with Vol, I want to see him retire a Titan, and I damn sure don't want to face him on Sundays.....

    I don't think Bus believes McNair has another four seasons in him unless three are holding a clipboard. But it is his job to talk the talk.

    This thing will sit until after the draft. I expect we'll see a new deal which will spread the cap hit out a couple of seasons and guarantee McNair retires a Titan.
