    McNair got hurt really because he would drop his shoulder rather than slide. Alot of his injuries came because he held the ball too long in the pocket waiting for something to develop that didn't. I think both of these things can be mentored.

    Houston fans are like that too, they are just amazed right now, they have a solid QB in Carr. They really don't need to use that pick on Young unless they will trade him. You can't always draft hype, and they don't need him. The smartest thing to do would be to trade down and get D'Brick, but remember Dan Reeves is in that office, he draft Michael Vick.

    I've heard Reeves really play Vick down in AM on Sirius. He's said more than once that although he's phenomenal athlete, he's not a complete QB.

    Well maybe he doesn't think too highly of Volek.

    I didn't even think about that, but you're right. There was no mention of Volek and the rest of the quote makes it look like he's definitely not in our plans for "franchise QB."

    I don't think he's ever been in our plans as franchise QB... Does anyone have a quote to the contrary? I've never heard them mention him as a long term starter...

    On Cold Pizza an Insider said he talked to the GM, and he said that the Texans will NOT be taking any type of QB.

    Can Fisher be making comments about a player who hasn't declared for the draft? I thought the league sent out something about Bush after his 500 yard game earlier in the year - warning don't talk about underclassmen.

    Interesting no comment about Volek. Recent info in papers seems to indicate McNair seems pretty sure about coming back (talks more about working with recievers in offseason). I also understand from comments on 560 a couple mornings ago that Volek is upset with the Titans and wants out, despite concilliatory comments to the contrary. I've always liked Volek, but the situation just isn't going to work for him here. His time and McNair's time overlap. I do think Volek can play well in the right system, but Mac is going to be the guy here for a couple more years it seems.

    that could mean anything.

    I doubt a GM would tell anything to anyone outside the organisation in the hopes it won't get out to the media.
