    The Ravens pull in a massive upgrade. This could make the AFC North a real QB battle between Palmer, McNair, and Roethlissberger.

    Too bad for the Titans. Now Young has to speed up his process. Volek is pretty good though.

    In my mind.
    Does anybody think they have enough pop to take the AFC with McNair?

    ( the Ravens )

    I think this is the first time they have had a Quarterback since Bert Jones played there.
     
  7. Thats funny that he goes back to the division where he played the Steelers regularly. This is going to be interesting.

    I think they should be OK even if Lewis can't return to his previous form. After all, they do have Mike Anderson, and although he is getting up there in years, he still had a productive year last season, albeit in the Denver running system. If Anderson plays near last year's level and Lewis at least plays respectably, the Ravens should have a decent running game.

    Means we will be seeing Young sooner rather than later. You could make an argument for sitting Young behind McNair. It's a lot harder to make that argument for Volek. Volek isn't bad, but you can bet they are going to be pressing to put Young out there that much sooner now.

    Volek did better than McNair did last year, he will be the starting QB while Vince Young learns behind him...it worked for Carson Palmer and Eli Manning...I don't see the Titans rushing him in there.

    Volek is the projected starter. Noy VY just yet.

    Games like this one make me wish I had the NFL Ticket!

    Good luck to McNair, though! I've always liked and respected him, and couldn't help but follow his career since he was originally drafted as a Houston Oiler.

    I hope he finds big success with the Ravens (even though I'm not a big fan of the owner...but he's no worse than Bud).

    Think McNair will try to send the Titanics a message ? I hope they beat the $h.. outa the Titanics and run up the score in the process .

    I'd love to see Steve McNair win a Superbowl with the Ravens.

    Just more proof for V.Y. to hightail it out of Nashville once his rookie contract is up. Bud has zero loyalty.
    He burned Houston and now McNair.
    I wish Steve the best.
    To hell with Bud! :crutch:

    I think you are being a little too harsh, this is a business and about winning.

    I totally agree with your Bud statement, just not how you got there.

    I have to admit that I always liked McNair but him being a Budman kept me from rooting for him. Now that Bud has screwed him over and McNair is on a team I consider neutral I'll root for him again.

    As for it being "just business"...McNair signed extensions to lower his cap number twice if I recall correctly. That was a move to help the TEAM win. Most of the time you do that, some of the money because a bonus and the rest gets loaded into the final year. He ended up with a unrealistic cap number for this season ($23 million). His repayment for his loyalty was being locked out of the team facilities because they never intended on paying him the money in the contract for the final year. That's not just business. It's showing a lack of loyalty to an employee that was nothing but loyal to you. Sad really.
