    It is possible.

    Three year deal with an option for the final, friendly to us, fair to him. I don't see him leaving, regardless of what pans out. Losing Steve is like giving up, making us way to young in the head where it counts. Bad idea. I'd say "Please let's not make this into an Eddie situation. We'd hate to lose you like that, and hate the perception you might get, regardless of where you end up. We want the best for you, we just think that's here."

    Who knows, the right pickups and impact draft players, we could see some glory before Steve's sun sets.

    That's what I want at least.

    This is painful to watch. I've never had to see a hero put out to pasture.

    See below....

    Our situation with McNair is somewhat like Green Bay and Farve. The Cheeseheads are hanging onto an old QB who can longer win games. They keep throwing their money into something that can't be fixed. We are not a retirement home for players who USED to be great, that role has been taken by the Raiders who collect old USED-TO-BES.
    It is obvious about McNair, he is one hit away from retirement. Is this what you want to invest in?

    Not the same. He spat upon us.

    Steve still wants to play here, and we're trying to see what the glue factory will offer us.

    I agree completly

    EG's decision to go to DaBoyz instead of taking a pay cut to stay in Nashville is one of the stupidest decisions I think I can remember an intelligent person making. It's like his decision tree was done on a Candyland board or something - just totally nonsensical.

    He could still be in the Titan backfield today getting ceremonial starts and the occasional 15+ carry game when CB breaks down. PLUS converting on 3rd and 1 would not just have to be a dream.

    Restructuring or not...he did not lose out on any money. By restructuring it guarenteed him the money that was a base salary by converting it into a bonus. Sure it lowered his base pay....but by converting it to a bonus it became prorated over the length of the contract....He made out just fine.

    And on top of that, he made the same or less than we offered him. He signed a contract with incentives that he couldn't deliver.
