    ... Billy Volek, he looked studly last year when Steve Mcnair was out and hes already in the NFL so we know hes made the transition. I think we should trade for Billy Volek. Im surprised that this name hasnt come up more.

    Hes already getting up there in age and he doesn't look like a QB that can bring us to the promise land.

    I wouldent complain. We could get Billy for 2 or 3 years, draft a QB next year, let him learn for those 2 or 3 years, and put him in. Sounds like a good idea to me, Volek, Rivers or Brees are all good options.

    Well, 23Ronnie23 I live in Tennessee and seen Billy Volek play a lot last year. He looked good to me but his age I can see is a problem to some. I mean if he is 28 (I don't know), but he'd still have like 9-10 years left, but he would probably only get a couple good years. I would have like to have seen Matt Schaub picked up by the Fins, but because Vick is so injury prone in Atlanta, we will probably never have a shot at Schaub, so oh well.

    I want to see them draft a rookie and keep Frerotte here to groom him and stuff, that way we can see if we can find the franchise QB we have been lacking since dan left.

    I dont want to see another teams second stringer starting for us year in and year out. I want our own manning/mcnabb/favre

    David Garrard is a guy who most people overlook but he could be a good starter for any team but the Jags are just wasting him by sitting him, I'm not saying he is better than Leftwich but he is good and the Jags could trade him for something good

    If you're thinking of keeping a QB for only 2 or 3 years, why wouldn't you just keep Gus? He already has a grasp of the system, and can only get better. Why bring a new guy, have him go through the growing pains, only to replace him when the QB stud is ready? Gus will be adequate to manage our games until his successor is ready.

    It wouldn't bother me, but the Titans aren't letting him go w/ McNair's impending retirement.

    the titans could very easily get the #1 pick this year, forcing a reunion of matt leinart with norm chow

    ironic because jacobs will be no better than a backup in the NFL

    Good point. I dont think they get the number 1 but that is the only scenario I could see where they might consider it

    he is happy with the Titans because he will have the job soon, why would we want a 28 year old QB? we want a future QB not one who will only last 5 years max

    the only QBs who might be availabe through trade we should look at are as follows: Philip Rivers, David Garrard (the best choice in my opinion), and Patrick Ramsey (I wouldn't take him but he is an option)

    personally I would draft someone, my choices would be: (in no particuar order) Matt Leinart, Drew Staton, Omar Jacobs, Charlie Whitehurst, Vince Young, Brodie Croyle, and Marcus Vick

    there's some other draft prospects but those are the well known ones

    Rex Grossman might be available if Orton shows promise the rest of the year.

    are some of you really saying you dont want him cause hes 28 instead of a rookie that wouldnt be able to contribute till he was prolly 25-26?

    i dont give a **** how old he is, if he can play the QB position good for us and win us football games im all for it..

    i havent watched Volek to much, but i can tell u this, he throws a great deepball.

    yea so does everyother team. their not easy to come by. if you got someone that can give u 3 good years and help you win, you take it. specially when u havent had a decent QB in 5 years.

    he is the back up to mcnair in tennessee.

    no way they let him go.

    he is very cheap.

    people, RESEARCH BEFORE DOING DUMB THREADS.

    and you guys seem to love other people's trash for qb's.

    the only backup i would consider is rivers.

    if the chargers choose to entertain a trade after this season, we should offer our low first round pick + a future 2nd or 3rd on 07 to get this kid. i say low cause we are going deep in playoffs.

    Volek is very fresh and very good. He can throw the deep ball 10 times better than mcnair.If the dolphins wanted him they could have signed him a year ago , or gotten him with a 7th pick before that. Just because a player has success on another team doesn't mean the dolphins should try and get them.
