    I don't know how much stock anyone puts into ESPN magazine, but they had an interesting list of all the starting QBs in the league in a recent issue. The list was actually a rating list (#1 being the best, of course). Steve McNair was rated at #22 while Billy Volek was rated at #21, I believe. I have never seen the list and don't subscribe to the magazine myself. I heard about it from Paul Jones, the local sportscaster on FOX 17. I didn't hear the source for the QB list during the newscast, so I emailed him. He said it was in the most recent issue of ESPN mag. Anyone got a subscription or the actual mag? I thought that the rating was pretty interesting.

    Billy Volek is rated above Steve McNair, but its Billy at 20 and Steve at 21.

    A caption under Billy:
    "Until Vince Young is ready, he'll make decent things happen with smarts and poise."

    And Steve:
    "Arm still works, but the rest of his body breaks down with alarming frequency."

    I knew it was 20 something. Thanks for the correction. Maybe Volek is the "sleeper" QB of this season. :lol:

    I have yet to see either drafted in 12 team 10 round drafts

    there should be games that Billy will light it up (INDY for instance)
    and there may also be games where he'll be average (because we're winning and running)
    I like Volek as a #2 QB easily with a potential to be a 1

    Steve will deal with growing pains and Billickitis
    he won't need to sling it because that defense will keep the scores modest
    I don't see Steve eclipsing 3,000 yards
    I'd have Steve as a borderline 2/3 QB - wouldn't start him for nothing

    I anticipate Volek to leap up draft boards come week3 preseason

    Steve isn't a number one (fantasy wise), but neither is Volek. They're ranked about where they should be though, although I'd have McNair higher because Mason and Heap are more proven then what we got.
