    Neither really. That said, Collins as a vet can offer VY more as mentor than “trade me” Billy. However his skills are not that of a Don Shrock or even a Neil O’Donnell who can win games if needed. Too bad the McNair situation couldn't have been worked out. Can you imagine having him as our back up and mentor to VY?

    He already has Mcnair's passing skills, let's not teach him how to miss practice all week or take naps before the game.

    This is easy.

    The right answer is Collins.

    Because he's content in his role as a back-up. Whereas with Billy, he wanted to become a starter and would have never been the mentor that Kerry has been to Vince. It would have been Chris Chandler/Steve McNair all over again.

    Which is why we're better off with Kerry.

    If Volek was really set on being a starter, why'd he take a backup position in San Diego?

    Volek is from the west coast area, and probably figured it was his best bet. SD has a good chance to make a SB run, and Rivers could go down. He certainly fit in well with their offense the other night. There are several teams that have good backup QB's that could possibly keep winning if the starter went down. Sadly, we aren't one of them.

    And? He knew where he was going 2 months before. It was all 'ok' by both teams and Volek. He understood what he'd be doing there, he probably just wanted to get away from whichever coach he made upset. He was doomed here.
    And he had every right to be upset. He had proven himself, and they bring in a crappier guy to take his spot 1 week or so before the season starts? It was just dumb, and a complete spit in the face.
