Me too, Volek has some game, and I wouldn't want to risk McNair getting further injured. Its only SD anyways.

I think Eddie George has both Favre and McNair topped in the toughness category. It's one thing for a QB to never miss a start due to injury, but for a RB to never miss a start due to injury is another monster altogether.
I agree that McNair is one tough SOB, but then again, he takes the same hits that any other QB in the league takes and you don't hear about most of them being hurt all of the time. McNair is CONSTANTLY hurting. It's like Iverson in the NBA. Everyone thinks that he is tough, but he gets hurt more than anyone else in the NBA. Alot of other players play every game just as sore as these 2, they just don't let on that they are hurt.

Yea but McNair isnt a vicoden addict.
That's just wrong.
But come on, it's a bruise. Bruises hurt but aren't physically limiting. Hurts to breathe is different than CAN'T breathe. If it ain't broke, pulled, torn, or sprained get your butt out there.
Bruised Ribs are essentially the same as broken ribs in some cases. I've had both and let me tell you, a bruised set of ribs can be almost as painful as broken ones, it really depends on the severity of the injury. You don't want your QB flinching out there when he knows he's gonna take a tough hit.
i remember several years ago, watching emmit smith have a ganster game despite a seperated shoulder.. the guy is like 5'9 or something, has a seperated shoulder, and still managed over 100 yards and some TDs (i believe)... that was inspirational.
mc nair is thougher the farve, farve always had big line in front and doesn't scramble and take hits, favre hasn't gone through all the injuries macnair has, the only reason why people say favre is tougher is that he is better,
