    not true. CJthebeast, TheSureThing, and TitansWillWin2.

    I actually think TWW2 is the scariest of the three.

    VY's gone. I'm simply looking at his body of work. Enough with the dramatics.

    I'm not saying VY is even a a good QB now. I'm saying he had some success here in TN. He did. No matter how much you want to talk about other issues (shirtless pic in the club, Fisher drama, being broke, etc) it doesn't take away what he did on the field.

    VY's off the feild issues sunk his ship. He was excelling in the field his last 2 years.

    KFC's winning year was nothing like when VY was winning and he was the only star on offense. VY WAS the offense while he was QB here. He rarely played with CJ because of his injuries (another reason he is gone).

    VY had some great moments here (99 yard drive, comeback vs. Giants, OT run against Texans), but he was always a rich man's Tebow. Sure, he'll put some miracles out of his azz, but you could never trust him as a franchise QB, he was always a career project.

    More like how has McNair tricked this fanbase? Oh right- He died. I forgot. Dying immediately makes you "The best" whether you were or not.

    Yes. We lost those 2 games Volek went crazy for. But why? OH... when you put up 36 points it's the QB's fault the team lost, right?

    Keep in mind this was a time when McNair couldn't hit a WR to save his life. THAT's what made Volek's games impressive. He exposed every excuse people had been using for McNair as simply not true.



    And I wasn't judging Mac on his last 2 yrs here. I'm judging him on his entire career- which was mediocre, to be perfectly honest. One good season does not a great QB make.

    McNair had one MVP year and about 4 "pretty good" years.

    Volek had 2 great games.

    Volek "exposed" McNair so bad that McNair was still a starting QB for 2 more years after Volek's "breakout" year and Volek went immediately back to the bench.

    there is no doubt that from a traditional basis McMVP was average in his best years. But he was much more than a traditional QB.

    I would like too see those current ESPN QB rankings on the McMVP years. Im thinking his judgement ect would been rated as excellent. He rarely made the big mistake that would lose a game (Fitzgerald is a Titan because he made a habbit of doing just that). McMVP did not stay in proper shape we all know that and he had issues getting the rock downfield to WRs, but he more than made up for it in the rest of his game

    Yes. Use a Jeff Fisher player keeping their position as justification to good play...


    ... you serious right now?

    McNair should have been unseated 2 years prior to when he was FOR Volek- or anyone else.

    It wasn't just 2 games that Volek showed him up, for what it's worth.

    He did it pretty much every time he got a chance.



    Fans just hated that their hero got outshined by a decent backup.
