As a cow, I would trade the two straight up. Unfortunately I don't think it will happen. I'd feel much more confident in our 2nd string QB situation with him at the helm.

Good grief. Are we interested in every player that is going to be potentially released or traded?

Yes. We are. Carl's another story though.



On a serious note Volek would be ideal as a #2 back up. Definately able to step in and play for a short stretch of games and have success if Trent were to go down. He handled himself nicely in Nashville whenever McNair went out with his yearly ailment. Shot Drew Bennett's fantasy value through the roof too. And his last name isn't Huard.

My question is who the hell are the Titans planning on starting? Kerry Collins? Or are they handing the reins to Young already (big mistake, IMO).

I dont think Voleck wants to be a backup. Thats probably why he is pissed they signed Collins. I would be pissed too. Voleck at least deserves a chance to start somewhere, he has proven he can play in this league.

volek is better than huard, but not really worth trading for.

A.J. Feeley was just cut and signed


he was an upgrade over Huard too.

Volek could have walked either last year or the year before IIRC. He had shown he could play and I'm sure lots of teams would have had him. He must have really thought he was the Titans' guy after McNair rode off into the sunset.

Now, where can we find this guy a starting job? That's right, welcome to the ChiefsPlanet QB career opportunity service! :)

Volek reminds me a lot of former Houston Oilers back-up QB Cody Carlson.

Volek, like Carlson looked decent at times filling in for a star QB but when both QBs were given a chance to start they choked under the pressure.

I'd still take Volek over what we currently have now as depth behind Trent.

I don't know. I'd take Drew Brees, Grossman, Plummer (how much I hate to say it), Rogers and McNair over Volek. Also, call me crazy, but I like Charlie Frye if he can continue to improve on that lackluster team.

That's basicaly irrevelant, Croyle is no where near ready to play in a game. Volek's a pretty good backup and would be a massive upgrade from what we have now.

Volek had his shot to try to be a starter the Bills offered him a contract last year and he decided to resign wtih the Titans....He's just upset he knows the Titans are phasing him out.

That was my first thought. Just because Volek lit up our sorry assed secondary of Woods, Wesley, Bartee and Warfield. Doesn't constitute his validity as worthy of draft picks. Hell, we made Pro Bowlers of every QB we faced that year. :banghead: :cuss: :banghead:

The Titans know he's good enough to start somewhere. They were getting big offers for him from teams like the Packers just a year or two ago. His price will be inflated and so will his expectations.

He's an upgrade over Huard by a ton. But we didn't invest a 3rd round pick in Croyle just to turn around use another one on someone like Volek.

We need Volek for the now.Volek isn't going to sign a one year contract to sit on the bench and not show his wares.

He's going to go somewhere with his eyes on the starting role in the near future, or at the very least he's going to get his cheddar to sit on the bench and not get a chance.

It has nothing to do with how bad we need him. It has to do with how he fits into this team.... he doesn't.

I don't think Chicago is looking for anyone. Grossman is getting better. Their main problem is that they won with two different QBs and now don't know which one to go with. Orton was a rookie, and Grossman is only a few years out, I really don't think Volek has any sort of calue to them.

Though what do I know? I'm just a cow.

If he wants to be a starter he should stay put. It'll be some time, if ever, before Young is ready. And if you lose out to Collins then you should probably find another line of work.

Moooo, who just doesn't know...

He could step in and start in Cleveland right now...today. Buffalo and Minnesota have too much invested, beit financial or leadership, in Losman and Johnson. Browntown is the only starting option I could see.

It's already been said many times, no way we trade for Volek, a guy publicly unhappy with a backup job, when we already have Trent and just invested a 3rd in Croyle. Move on...

Count Alex's Wins

Cleveland's starter is Charlie Frye. He's had a great camp and they drafted him as their QBOTF last year.

I could be declared the CEO of Micrisoft, but that wouldn't mean that I am qualified to hold the job. Loserman is terrible.

I guarantee at least three starters will be benched for ineffective play this season, so he definitely has a chance to become the starter before the end of the season.

I agree. If we wanted an improvement, we'd be better off taking a look at the free options. Since we've shown no interest in the likes of Feeley, Collins, George, Detmer, Fiedler, etc., I assume we have no interest in trading for Volek.

Yeah, he's following the Kyle Boller path to fame and fortune.

I know this is going to come as a shock to you, but some guys that were good in college just plain suck when it comes to the NFL and no amount of grooming will change that.
