    I really believe there is no way that Leinhart becomes a Titan, especially when his former college OC doesnt believe his arm his that strong. Granted there is more to being a QB than having a strong arm(intagibles) and Leinhart has them but I think Lienhart will need to be in a very QB friendly offense for him to suceed.

    Max, I keep hearing this rumor that Chow said this but have yet to see it confirmed.

    I don't see why Leinart would not be successful running the same offense he ran to win two National Championship and a Heiman Trophy. And I would give up a little arm strength for the other abilities Leinart brings.

    If he is available at #3, I'd take him in a heartbeat.

    Does anyone have any proof that Chow said that? I hear it on the message boards, but no one has a source. In every interview I have hear from Chow about Leinhart, which hasn't been many, he has just talked about how good he is. Heck, Manning doesn't have a "cannon" either...

    I am with you Jeff...Leinhart or Young...win/win in my book.

    It could be that Chow did say Leinart wasn't physically in the league with Carson Palmer. That doesn't mean Chow wouldn't be happy to get Leinart.

    I believe he said it on the radio really early in the year, but I can't really remember when. And if I remember correctly he said he doesn't know if Leinhart has the arm strength, which is slightly different.

    I have my own doubts about his arm strength. Manning doesn't have a cannon, true. But would anyone here say that Leinart has Manning's arm? I honestly don't know. I do know that Leinhart floats the deep ball too much for the nfl, but that could just be a college habit. Its strongly possible we could get ML, but if we do then I'll be confident that its a good pick. Actually I'll probably be the most confident, because if anyone knows the strengths and weakness of Leinhart- its Chow. (Which means I'll be equally confident if we let him pass) :))

    Someelse said that he/she would sacrifice a little arm strength for the other abilities he has. I have to agree, but with the other two candidates we might be able to get both (arm strength and the other abilities). :))

    The article about Matt Leinhart appeared in the Tennessean several months ago and said that Palmer and Leinharts arm strenght arent in the same league(Palmers being the stronger one)

    Palmer does have a stronger arm than Leinhart. Jeff George had a cannon for an arm. Heath Shuler's arm was amazing....

    I really don't care who has the stronger arm, as long as it's our receivers who are catching the ball.

    I'd take Leinart if he was there. I'm still watching Cutler, but right now it's whomever is available between Young and Leinart.

    For me, the beauty of this draft is that I'd be thrilled to get Bush, Leinart or Young and one of them is probably ours.
