    Man, if it really is a done deal behind closed doors I hope Volek emailed their playbook and circled what they have been working on in practice.

    Agreed, but what are we giving up for him. He wants to be a starter, and he isnt going to be one here without an injury, so is he going to like Diego any more than Nashville?:icon_shrug:

    I think it's the lesser of two evils. Being a #2 is better than a #3.

    I just hope we don't give up too much for him.

    You're not gonna like this, but I heard Darren Smith say there's a chance it might be for Whitehurst.

    I dunno know how you guys feel about this, but I don't like it.

    I hope we didn't give up too much for him. He's gonna be 3rd string for possibly a month till he learns the chargers playbook. Hope they just give a very late rounder for him.

    It is being done.

    A.J. has coveted Volek for sometime and now we will pull the trigger. I am not comfortable with Whitey pulling the trigger - yet.

    No effin way that goes down. No way.

    Volek is a rent a vet. Whitehurst is like money in the bank. He'll garner us a first or second in two years.

    Thats a possibilty. Hopefully before they ever trade whitehurst though they have two other capable qb's in the qb stable besides Rivers.

    He couldn't start over Collins fresh off the street or stay ahead of Young. The titans know what they have in him and they would rather have Collins or Young in the game than to put their hopes in Volek. That says something. We should listen and pass.

    Agreed..

    White-man stays.

    I see lotsa gold in this dude for potential and hope he pushes the fuc out of Rivers.

    It says the Titans were forced into taking a franchise QB (Young) and not that something is up. They needed a seasoned vet behind the starter which makes Volek trade bait....nothing more.

    They were forced to take a franchise QB because they didn't trust Volek on the job after he was with the team grooming for that role for how many years? Then they had to bring in Collins because they were so unsure about him as a starter quality QB. He turned out to be third string out of that mix behind two guys off the street new to the system.

    Volek is a seasoned vet behind the starter. They are willing to trade him to put a rookie backing up the starter, the exact situation we are in & acting like we have to get Volek to solve.

    True dat. :icon_banana:

    Folks, Volek has a bad attitude and is going to whine constantly because he's not the starter.

    He's not an AJ type player.

    Volek is a cancer. :icon_eek:

    I'm not so sure that's the case. I think this might be a KMac type situation, where the guy is a pretty good guy but he's just had a falling out with the front office and coaching staff in Tennessee.

    nothing does that more then having the starting QB job and having it snatched under you not just by a FIrst round QB but by some guy you snatched up at hte last minute. I never heard him being that way prior to this; I think it was just that the Titans had, by all accounts, been grooming him to take over the starting job after McNair left and then had it taken from him by both Young and then by Collins.
    Don't think too much of this, he'll be much better when he enters SD.

    In other words, "I'm not good enough to beat out a very RAW rookie or a FA we just signed off the street, so let me move on and find another sucker."

    Just translating.

    I think it's more like, "I have not been given an opportunity to beat out two inferior QBs. This organization does not know what the hell it's doing. The front office and the coaches are not on the same page. I re-signed with this team as a free agent because I was told I'd be given a chance to start after McNair left, and I never received my chance. I even put a no-trade clause in my contract because I wanted to be with the Titans. But they have treated me like crap, so it's time to move to a team that gives me a fair shake."

    I partially agree with this assessment.

    I like Volek everytime I have seen his pitch the rock. He has a live arm downfield......nuff said.
