    If the pass is on target any of our guys are fine. Many of their catches were far from on target. Fix one thing first before you try to fix another. You don't put a new tranny and rear end in a car to fix an engine that isn't running right.

    i guess, if it makes you feel better.

    like you said, walker had as many drops as our guys, but denver throws the ball a lot more. more opportunities to catch/drop the ball, he had more catches with the same amount of drops.

    Again, he also had two QB's that throw the ball better at this point......just like Palmer and his group, Peyton and his group. Their percentages are probably higher also.

    walker had all three of his 100 yard performances with plummer at qb. plummer completed 50%, 49% and 59% in those games.

    All three QBs had good to great rookie seasons IMO. Cutler was the best passer, while Young was the best for his team. Leinhart was overshadowed by both, but played quite well at times. Kudos to all three.

    We are not measuring a wr's ability to, how should we say, get open. Get Vince one of those. And there you go. We need speed. Our whole offense is geared toward it now.

    There’s something I don’t see (m)any of you taking into account. NOBODY works harder at improving himself than Vince Young does. And if any of you doubt that, the proof is in the pudding:

    2003
    Leinart 255 of 402, 3556 yards (63.4%) 38 TDs, 9 INTs, 164.5 college QB rating
    Young 84 of 143, 1155 yds (58.7%) 6 TDs, 7 INTs, 130.6 QB rating
    Cutler 147 of 241, 1844 yds (61%) 10 TDs, 5 INTs, 134.8 rating

    2004
    Leinart 269 of 412, 3322 yds (65.3%) 33 TDs, 6 INTs, 156.5 rating
    Cutler 147 of 241, 1844 yds (61%) 10 TDs, 5 INTs, 134.8 rating
    Young 148 of 250, 1849 yds (59.2%), 12 TDs, 11 INTs, 128.3 rating

    2005
    Young 212 of 325, 3036 yds (65.2%), 26 TDs, 10 INTs, 164 rating
    Leinart 283 of 431, 3815 yds (65.7%), 28 TDs, 8 INTs, 157.7 rating
    Cutler 273 of 463, 3073 yds (59.1%), 21 TDs, 9 INTs, 126.1 rating

    As you can see, Leinart was exceptional throughout his college career. Cutler was okay throughout his college career. Vince Young was marginal to begin with but through hard work and dedication eventually became comparable to Leinart.

    I expect the same thing to happen in the NFL. Cutler and Leinart fit systems. Plug them in and watch them go. They’re fine from day one but fine is all they’ll ever be.

    Young is an enigma wrapped in a riddle inside a paradox. He vexes coaches. They tell him to run. They tell him to stay in the pocket. They don’t know what the hell to do with him. Consequently, he starts out very raw.

    But through an incomparable drive to excel, Vince continually polishes his game until he’s comparable to the best of the best.

    And that merely addresses his passing skills. Guys like Leinart and Cutler can’t hold a candle to Young when they’re flushed from the pocket and forced to run.

    As for the Vick – Vince comparisons, here’s the difference. Vick is a coach killer. Vince is a coach maker.

    I agree. 2 or 3 years down the road, Vinny will be just like Vick.

    2 or 3 years down the road, the Texans will still have never had a winning season... but hey, I have hopes of you guys breaking even at some point...

    In 2 or 3 years it will be close to 45 years without a Super Bowl win for the TENNhead franchise.
