And I think with McCarron, it doesn't take much for him to start responding to it poorly. He had it easy with that line of his but when he did get a little pressure, he quickly fell apart. He's not accustomed to having to make decisions quickly. Maybe he has an untapped ability for that and he just needs to work on it.

No, there is little salary cap relief. Next year is the time to discuss this.

Ok..

Like I said, I wasn't trying to defend McCarron.

Nobody really knew what McCarron was like under pressure because his O-Line was so good that he rarely saw any. He did in the Oklahoma game though and he laid an egg.
During the playoffs last year when his line seemed to have a total breakdown, something he has hardly ever had to deal with, Peyton looked exactly like a taller version of Keenum.

Was it as big as the 18-1 Brady-led Pats laid or the Peyton-led Broncos laid just this past Feb.? And those guys are highly paid, NFL-veteran QBs.

Anyone can crack if the pressure is high enough and consistent enough.

And how did we get from Foster to QBs anywho?

What the heck do we have without Foster?

Letting him go or trading him based on almost no savings would be ignorant.

Remember back when he was one of the best in the league? Not that long ago ...

Lets see what he has left.

I'm surprised there are no cut Andre Johnson threads yet? A guy that's past his prime and by far the highest paid player on our team.

Now I am not saying we should cut him, but with the re-building tone of alot of people on here, just surprised I haven't seen it mentioned yet.

On a side note... the way his contract is structured, he's lined up for a sure-cut by 2016. He'll be getting paid +14M, but only 2.7 of it is dead money.
