    I wonder if the Titans are considering this option. Instead of having the quarterback of the future learn under Chow/Fisher/McNair he could learn under Chow/Fisher/Volek. It's the coaches that do the most to get a young quarterback ready. I remember when McNair came out Chris Chandler wanted nothing to do with mentoring McNair and McNair turned out just fine due to the coaching. Just think of all of the salary cap space the Titans would have in 2007, which is realistically when they will be ready to contend again. Thoughts?

    McNair is not at the point in his career where he can take a young team on his back and take them to the Super Bowl. Maybe the first round of the playoffs, I am sick of losing in the playoffs. I would rather really suck for a year or two while develeping a team that has a legimate chance at WINNING a super bowl, not a 10-6 team that barely slips into the playoffs and loses in the first round.

    Billy is at the point in his career where he can't play a full game.

    Considering that McNair has been schooling Vince all of this time. I don't forsee any problems should Vince be drafted. Not saying that Volek wouldn't be a help as well.

    But I remember Volek even saying that McNair helped him out alot as well when he came out. Chandler was just a ***** and didn't want to help McNair at all.

    I guess the basic issue is when the quarterback of the future is ready, do we still want $10M-$15M of the salary cap devoted to McNair? If McNair is resigned it should be for no more than two years. Imagine its 2008, the quarterback of the future is completly ready, and Floyd has $20M of cap room to fill any remainning holes. To me, that would be ideal.

    There is no doubt it would be better for McNair to mentor the young quarterback if the salary cap was not an issue, but it is.

    Volek has done nothing this year to consider himself nothing more than an average NFL backup QB. Sure, he may have shown a few bright spots in 2004. However, the NFL (like many other things) is a "what have you done for me lately" league. And quite frankly, Billy Volek has not done too much. Rosenhaus will have his work cut out for him this off-season trying to shop around for a Volek trade.

    Volek is not the Titans quarterback of the future, no doubt.
