    The key part is the following (regarding QBs Billy Hart vs Matt Leinart at USC):

    So at #3, the Titans will not take VY, no matter what all of you armchair gurus think! VY does not fit the Norm Chow QB....he will go to the Raiders where he will be able to throw jump balls to Randy Moss!

    We won't know which QB Titans will pick till draft day. Adams and Reece want VY...coaches want Leinart....we shall see.

    I take it that Adams and Reese want to win a SB. They hired Fisher & Chow to do that (especially Chow).....so there might be an argument for which QB is drafted in order to help the Titans win a SB. Bud Adams knows Oil Exploration and NFL Team relocation......Fisher & Chow know football.

    That is a pretty big leap.

    The sky is blue. My car is blue. Therefore, my car must be the sky.

    Just because you say, don't make it true.

    Bud Adams knows cars, right. I think he still owns River Oaks Chrysler. You know what they say about (used) car salesman.:)

    If Floyd Reese really cared what Norm Chow wants, then perhaps this article would have some sort of relevance.

    I'd bet Chow isn't even there in two years....this won't be his decision.

    Agreed.

    I was listening to part of the mock draft on Sporting News Radio and the TN newspaper guy was saying that Chow like Leinart but Reese likes VY, so Reese will win that battle.

    The argument goes that if that organization wasn't afraid of Steve McNair's lack of polish and competition, they aren't gonna be afraid of taking Vince Young.

    That mock was weird. Bush, D'Brickshaw, Young, Leinart, Mario....

    Yeah, but I have to say that quote about Chow jumped off the page for me too. Hope it is true. It will be easier for Houston fans to get over no VY in town if he doesn't go to the Titanhicks.

    Hmmmmmm....

    The Titans are making life hard on Stevie lately.

    Looks like Stevie is headed outta' Hickessee.

    Chow is nowhere near the top of the decision making ladder on this issue. And Vinny is right, Chow is a goner in a few years.

    My money is on this: Bush to Texans, Ferguson to Saints, and Young to Titans.

    Bud and Reese will choose VY for all the right reasons: To spite Houston and solidify the leftover Oiler/Titans fans in Houston who need a reason to stay a fan once Stevie is hobbling out of guitar town. TELL ME DIFFERENT. I dare you. :)

    If TEN drafts VY, it will do nothing but help the Texans..... VY will be a bust, and the Titans will have given up the chance to improve its team.

    Win-Win for me. I assume Billy Volek is the heir apparent, but you never know. The reason for saying Chow wants Leinart is because he is the QB guru, OC, and former ML coach......he an Fisher are pals, and Fisher is a USC alum. Emotion plays into these picks.....Parcells will always pass on more talented players if that player is not a "Bill Parcells" guy. That is the first thing he does when scouting players.....does player X give 110%? does player X take plays off? does player X whine to coaches? etc.

    it looks like the titans are 75% in favor of drafting cutler. leinart is a close second.

    Sounds good. Once we trade with the Jets, Bush will be gone to N.Y. thank godness, Mario Williams will be in N.O., Matt Lienart will go to Tenn., and then Vince Young becomes a Texan. 90% of you Bush-Bandwagon guys will leave this message board, and or turn in you SEASON TICKETS, so thats 15 less season ticket holders so not a big deal.

    Great enthusiasm, but if we drop down to #4, it will probably mean we go defense with AJ Hawk, or OL with D'Brickashaw. I'm hoping we go with Hawk, since LB is leader of the defense, and a dominating LB makes the defense that much better.

    Will not happen, if they drop to #4 it will be Vince, hands down. No need to take a OL, we will have plenty picks to grab them in the first day.

    taking young at 4 is a reach.

    No, passing on Vince at #4 is a reach. He is arguably the best athlete n this yearsdraft, plus Kubiak has already said he likes Young the best overall but Charley does not want him at the #1 pick. At number 4 all of Charleys favorite guys are gone, so Vince would be the guy.

    young isn't even the best athlete in this draft at his position. there are several better athletes. bush, davis, m. williams...young will go somewhere between 9-13, so it's a reach.
