    Volek's even been deactivated for today's game. If it wasn't for Drew Bennett I might be hoping for a Kerry Collins injury so that Vince Young is forced into the game. [​IMG]

    Typical caste system media report: "Vince Young, 3/4 in his debut." But as the saying goes, the Devil is in the details: Young is 3/4 for 27 yards and an INT in his pro-debut.

    Couldn't have happened to a more deserving club. And to think, the Titan's Qb's are being out played by a skinny white kid who has had two surgeries on his throwing shoulder.

    I'm sure it has happened from time to time, but how often does a rookie quarterback get to see action in the very first game of the season? When it does happen it's due to injuries of the starter. I've seen better prospects than Vince Young sitting on the bench for eons beforegetting a shot. He's already been on the field nearly as much as Aaron Rodgers of the Packers who sat on the bench all of last year.

    i dunno but Gradkowski got on for Bucs today after Simms' 3rd int... and Grad isn't as high profile as Young (although he just might be better and... faster than him)

    LOL @ volekforqb! First the Slavs, now he's insulting the Irish, too!

    Let me guess - the Irish aren't white, either?

    Have you ever SEEN an Irishman?? You can't BE any whiter than an Irishman!

    TOO FUNNY!

    from KFFL.com
    San Diego Chargers announced Tuesday, Sept. 19, that they have acquired QB Billy Volek (Titans) from the Tennessee Titans for a 2007 sixth-round draft pick. The draft choice could become a fifth-round choice if Volek participates in 50 percent of the team's total offensive plays this season.

    6th round? wow, Chargers made a great deal! but why do they even need it, having Rivers there? Volek will inevitably become a backup, at least for now... shame

    Give him one excuse one bad game, one injury blah blah blah and then you will see a QB of a much different color

    He's already had two. The thing is, Young is worse than Collins right now, so they're stuck with Kerry til 'the future' is ready to play.

    Billy Volek is better than Kerry Collins and Vince Young combined...The Titans deserve to lose by undertaking this ridiculously stupid trade.

    Fisher blasts Volek
    Fisher made a huge deal today about Volek's work ethic and reluctance to face competition during his press conference today. This is the same Volek who took about 90% of the practice snaps for the Titans over the past 5 seasons because NcNair was always too hurt to practice but always managed to recover on game day (a practice for which he was lavishly praised by his coaches and the media). The same Volek who lost a spleen QBing for the Titans.

    Fisher is saying he decided to bench Volek after he wanted a trade when they brought in Collins (which is funny because the day he was brought in at $2 million he was proclaimed the starter) and Fisher claims Volek lied about where he was one day. Fisher wouldn't elaborate about this alleged incident. Again this is funny because Pac Man Jones aked permission to miss practice one day to attend a funeral and he was arrested at 2 am at a local barafter getting in an altercation and spitting on a woman. Nothing from Fisher about this.

    The seat is so hot for Fisher he feels he must try to tarnish the rep of Volek. PATHETIC! [​IMG]

    All this and Tennessee has real chance to win this week as they go up against Duante Culpepper. He just might keep the Titans from going 0-16. If Vince Young starts it should be real entertaining; dueling retarded banjos.

    Tip of the week: Take the under in this game. [​IMG]

    Wow, what a joke Fischer is, I have never liekd the guy but now I hope this season is his last coaching. 2 years ago Volek is all the rage and waited patiently for his turn and performed well whenever called upon. I hope Volek comes out with a rebuttle, I really do because Fischer is a backstabbing,lying scoundrel.

    The franchise has jerked Volek around his whole time there. Playing McNair when he sucked, then drafting Young instead of going for a more pressing need, they bring in the washed up Collins and give him the starting job, totally unearned.

    The whole thing was a set up to get Young in, pandering to the PC crowd. They dump Volek, and to San Diego, they are probably hoping he is stuck behind Rivers so he won't play and show everybody what asses they are, and to top it off after all that bad treatment they bad mouth the guy as he goes. Wanna bet it is just a pre emptive strike to try and silence Volek up from talking about what what went on in Tennessee?

    I heard an interesting take on the radio the other day on why Daunte is a sitting duck in the pocket. The host said if you watched all of his big bombs he scrambled out and bought time and heaved it up to one of his wideouts. Since he blewout his knee he can't run anymore and is overwhelmed in the pocket. He looks like a deer in the headlights, where is David Woodley when you need him.... [​IMG]

    Woodley has been dead for three years so at this point Culpepper might have the edge mobility-wise.
