    Let me guess....I bet he said to pick Demeco too. I also told my parents to invest in Microsoft.....yeah. Saying it after the fact means nothing to me.

    Kinda funny.... I was just thinking about the Dan Reeves thing last night when I heard him on the game radio broadcast.

    He was hired to go through the whole organization and make recommendations about who should stay and who should go. After hearing this, I can't help but think that he probably advised to get rid of Carr along with Capers and Casserly....but McNair wasn't having it.

    I doubt we'll ever really know what was said behind closed doors.

    "I don't know if they ever asked my advice, but I looked at (Young) and told them that he was a guy they would have to consider even with David Carr there," Reeves said.
    ****************************
    Even though we heard this awhile back from McClain and other sources, there it is right there from the horses mouth. And come on Coach, you know
    Bob McNair asked you about Carr and VY and you know you gave him your
    opinion.
    But he is your fellow S. Carolina U. alum, and your golfing partner, your buddy.
    Of course you've got his back on this and don't want to make him appear any
    more foolish than he's got to feel right now for not taking your advice.
    Good luck in the E-W Shrine game Coach. Enjoy yourself while your in town this week.

    Now that was funny, I don't care who you are. It would really suck to have Vince and all the prime time games for the next ten years at home wouldn't it? Yep Mario was the clear choice

    I'm serious. I like Mario. With a bum foot, he was a pretty dominant run stuffer.

    Pal, you are a no-brainer. Young was the correct choice. Some knew it then; everyone knows it now.

    That McNair hired Reeves and then did not take his advice is just plain stupidity. It's pathetic. McNair may be "nicer" than Bud, but he's dumber.

    If you VY lovers weren't so enamorated, you would see Mario isn't the horrible bust your kind seems to make him out to be.

    I love mario, hes a good player, even with the injury he was still all over the place, but im just sayin this franchise would be better off with vince young, but bob doesnt seem to care about the franchise he wants to have a team full of friends on this team

    In the long run, I think we're better off with Mario.

    i think you might be pushin it on that one, but i think with not takin Vince we are 2 years behind on were we should be, cause were not gonna get a long run startin QB this season, but maybe next, and theres no way to get into the playoffs with david carr, maybe plummer but not carr

    The Steelers showed the world last year that you don't need a great QB to win a Super Bowl.
