    i'm not convinced that a vet QB can teach a rook QB any more than an a proven OC / QB coach like Chow

    I mean, how much do you really think Chris Chandler taught McNair ?

    I guess it depends on how much the QB is willing to work with the rookie.

    The thing a vet QB has over the OC is that the vet QB is out there on the battlefield, while the OC is on the side lines or gets his knowledge from the game films.

    Still the most important aspect is the teaching skills. Favre and McNair may be great QB's, but if they don't have teaching skills young QB's won't learn anything from them, that a good QB coach couldn't teach them.

    Chandler didn't attempt to teach McNair anything, so not a great example.

    I think the mentoring thing is overated as far as Xs and Os and so forth for players. Some of the greatest QB coaches were never great QBs. The best thing a guy like McNair brings to the table is being able to set and example on and off the field. He should be willing to do that for any QB we bring in unless he is lacking in character.

    In that case Favre is lacking in character. After they drafted Rodgers he stated that it wasn't his job to teach the new guy and that he would just do what he'd always done. Would McNair think any different?

    The vet QB can also teach the rookie to:

    1) Not wear a full length mink coat in front of the press.
    2) Not get caught with gun.
    3) Not get a DUI.
    4) Not do chicks in the back seat of your escalade in a parking lot.
    5) Don't trust the media.
    6) Don't start fights in public
    7) Nothing good happens after 10pm

    etcetera etcetera etcetera

    he also said if rogers asked any questions he'd do his best to answer them, but he wasnt going to sit him down one on one in the film room and go over each play in the playbok.
