    mcnair was pretty much on par for his career averages in '05. he actually had a better qb rating in '05 than he did in '04.

    Mcnair in 2005...

    2004 was a throw away year for him because of the injury but in dingers offense from 2001-2003 mcnair had an average passing rating of 91 and of course was mvp in 2003. In 2005 it was 82 and while most of us credited that to a decline in ability it had as much to do with personel. That 2003 team was loaded with good Wrs..mason-bennett-mccareins-calico.

    If gunny thinks that 24 game appearences is not enough to judge a guy what about one game? Volek only played one game last year. He wasn't horrible either.

    I didn't say they don't count just that he was playing better than that before. Of course they count and i made that exact point about 15 times on these boards to illustrate that mcnair was not playing that bad last season. He didn't play bad last year he just doesn't run that much or as well.

    If mason and mcareins were here last season i think you will agree that mcnair's stats would have been better right? Closer to that 91 rating he had when he was at his best. My point is that it wasn't chow's system that caused that.

    You are right mcnair was just about as good throwing the ball as he always has been. He didn't have good WRs in 98-2000 and you see similar results to last year.

    sure, mason was mac's go to guy. but volek's go to guy was still here, and his numbers still suffered. that was my point.

    and by the way, mcareins hasnt done much since he has been gone. i would say mac made him look better than he was.

    like i said about a page back, volek must have done something to make the coaches feel uncomfortable with him as the starter.

    your starting qb and leader doesnt call out his guys and start complaining that they arent good enough.

    So volek agress with me then?

    But he shouldn't have said it.

    The line about personel shortcomings. He should have waited until givens and jones were healthy to make that judgement and should have kept his mouth shut..

    Bingo!

    I think that's why Collins was brought in. No changes seen in the pre-season.

    Yet you still have to wonder, why bring in a quarterback with an even more questionable completion percentage?
