I never really doubted his return for some reason, its just hard for me to picture the NFL without him. He's one of those guys who it will be very sad for me to see him retire. A year ago I would have been crazy to think that Volek was better than Mac9 as my boy King Titan would say. I wonder if KT still has him ranked #1...

I am going to call this right now....

Calico is going to be #1 in Titanville with Mcnair at the helm.

As long as both his sprained knees have healed.

I like the prospect of the titans offense next season. With Chris Brown *healthy* the offense is going to revert to that hardnose running style that made them a good team. With a Chow twist. Mcnair will have less of a featured role unlike the last few seasons. Where the Titans were a passing offense. Because Eddie George had lost a step or two.

Almost the same scenario as PITTSBURGH STEELERS. Running offense that shifted to passing, Sucked. And is going back to their bread-and-butter running style.

Shhhhh... ;-D

Let everyone draft Drew Bennett in round 4-7 while you silently grab Calico in the 9th or 10th. With Mason gone, he has to step up. Now, if he gets hurt again, I don't know who they have in reserve.

Also watch out for Erron Kinney or Ben Troupe...if they stick to one of these guys, you could have a very nice TE option if you miss out on the "big boys." McNair loves TE's, and if Calico gets hurt again someone has to catch the ball. :-?

Oh God... not again.
Calico has been the Fantasy Football "on the down-low, sleeper" player two years running. And, has pretty much burned everyone who drafted him late or picked him up off waivers. I've got no faith in the guy's skill or health.
Although, I do find it amusing how we so easily write McNair off, two seasons off of a MVP performance. Granted, McNair may not have the physical skills of the 2K Mac, but the guy is a baller, and could still easily put up top ten FF-QB #'s, even with minimal talent backing him up, if he remains healthy.

I'm just saying...

question... did you count out Rich Gannon last year? Because if you did, you are a hypocrite for making this argument now. :-b

I just want to add....

Volek threw for 172 yards and four more TDs than Michael Vick last season -- in seven fewer starts. Volek, who started eight times, was also the best quarterback in Fantasy Football in December. He had more points than Peyton Manning and Daunte Culpepper, and only Trent Green equaled his 11 passing TDs for the month.

He also played against some of the worst pass defenses in the league - Oakland, KC, and Indy. :-o Denver put the whooping on him (and cost me a title :-[ ). I'm still a little sketchy on Volek, especially with Mason gone.

McNair was most dangerous when he could scamper for TD's and first downs...I'm sure he can still do it, but he gets hurt too much these days. If he is healthy, I'm sure he can still put up nice numbers. If you aren't big on backup QB's, you could probably wait until late and pick him up hoping for the big comeback! ;-D

just because he was an MVP 2 years ago doesn't mean much anymore. I hate to say it, but it is all about "what have you done for me lately." Now I know McNair still has it in him, but will we ever see it is the question. There was another MVP that got replaced after taking home not just the NFL MVP, but the SB MVP too. He was even replaced after leading his team to the superbowl the year before.

McNairs team seems to be losing alot of its talent. I think it might have been a good idea to retire this year. But then again, if I were him I would play until my legs fell off too.

oh i like the stats santa. i dont care who he played, those numbers speak for themself, if in fact numbers can speak??? :-] that game in denver i believe was like negative 10 degrees so ill give billy a pass there. but i do believe mcnair has at least one stellar year left in him. he'll just have to do it for someone elses team.

Because we all know Vick had a monster day against that very same KC defense, when he put up, oh wait, they blanked him and rolled on for 56 points. So even if Volek played bad defenses, he appears to have played them better than Vick did.

I do like those stats, and hope the Titans give Volek a fair shot to become their franchise guy.
