sounds good to me
Is McNair worth that much? I'd pretty much take anything for him. But if they want to give us some 2007 Picks even better.
Interesting how Wyatt's article now has Fisher saying a trade is unlikely and that he is unaware of any negotiations.
So...has Fisher been kept out of the loop on this or is this Bus Cook playing the media big time? If the former...what does it say for the Fisher/Reese relationship??
Mcnair for Ravens 1st rounder next year and a bit of beas n honey?
Sounds to me that Cook is putting some pressure trough the media. I wouldn't like to let Mac go unless traded for Lewis
I find it hard top believe Reese and Fisher could be that out of sync. As for Bus Cooke, all I can say is "thanks for squatto". I think the earlier post is right- Bus is looking for one last payday on his old warhorse Steve. If anything this should tell Steve what Bus thinks of his skills now, i.e., before he was always right there helping Steve to renegotiate for the good of the team. I guess he figures it's time top get what he can while the gettin is good. Bus must have studied a page out of the Jerry Kraus playbook.
Still feels weird, the idea of Mac moving on... especially to the f'in Ravens..
Well...Bus has Steve and Favre....two high profilers that are on the downside of their careers...maybe Bus should be trying to get some new clients to feed his wallet rather than trying to squeeze wine out of raisins...
Adam Schefter reported on NLF Network that Cook/McNair asked permission to talk with the Ravens yesterday, and Titans okay'd it. (Who thinks that hasn't already been going on?) He also said they were close on a contract but the Titans and Ravens couldn't agree on compensation.
ESPN is all over this story right now. They say Titans gave permission for Ozzie Newsome to open negotiations with Cook.
BUT, then they say that it is unlikely that both sides will reach a mutually suitable agreement and mumble that he will probably be released in the summer.
My take on this: Titans FO is letting the Ravens show McNair what the market is- but have little intention of trading McNair. I think they may be using the market to assess what it would take to keep him (in regards to what they would accept as a renegotiation). If McNair's market value is too rich, then they'll let him go. If not, they will make a play to keep him.
