    I don't know, but I think us picking 3rd is some kind of sign, Last time we did, we got Steve McNair, Now we get a pretty similar guy. Thoughts, Opinions?

    Better than McNair. He's already been tested. He's smooth. He's cool under pressure. He's taken a team on his back to the championship. He's scored the winning td in front of the whole world. He's done everything McNair had yet to accomplish. They say he's not ready. Please. He's ready to go now. When you can make things happen, you don't have to read defenses, because they have to read you. He's the show. Vince Young will be greater than McNair. He'll win the superbowl.

    Check and see where the Titans/Oilers have done drafting QBs in the first round:
    1971 - #3 - Dan Pastorini
    1986 - #3 - Jim Everett
    1995 - #3 - Steve McNair
    2006 - #3 - Vince Young

    All at #3 overall. All damned good QBs. so far anyway. Numerology dictates that Vince will be a good one...

    I think Vince will run into some problems when under pressure from defensive linemen, but experience will help him out their. I was rooting for the Titans to take Young ever since I watched the Rose Bowl. I was like, "he looks like McNair and Vick combined!" It's always good to have over 280 rushing yards in THE college bowl game while playing the QB position and still be able to celebrate after the game. I am, however, still worried about Volek's situation.

    I just responded to Phislamma on another thread. You are crazy to say that Vince is ready now. If he starts I say he throws between 15-20 INTs and we win 5-6 games. He will be brought along slowly I am sure.

    I might even agree with you stat wise, but it wouldn't be because of Vince Young. It would be because the Titans aren't that good. I think he's ready to play. And that doesn't mean play like Bret Favre. That means play like a first year star might play. Showing improvement each week.

    Jim everettt?

    Damn good QB? Try average...

    Everett was drafted 2nd in 1986.

    "Damn good" might not apply to dan pastorini either star. 103 career TDs vs 161 ints. Nah, he sucked. Sorry to spoil your whole theory buddy.
