    How do they plan on getting McCoy from the Niners?

    I assume he's suggesting the unlikely course that we trade a pick. A pick that we'd probably use on a decent rookie QB who hasn't already proven he's a bust. The allure of certain veterans will forever elude me.

    I'm hearing there's a chance that someone else there (forgot the dude's name) might get the #2 job there. Forgot his name, but he's more like Kaepernick, athletic.

    Remember there were talks of the Packers obtaining McCoy before, as supposedly McCarthy or Thompson liked him.

    Obviously a long shot.

    If the accounts of Harrell's release are correct we are about to find out exactly what #13 can do with a highly complex offensive playbook.

    The guy has started in the NFL and has a pretty decent record as a starting QB ... so, he wins. That's a good sign. His college career has nothing to do with anything.

    I bring up the highly complex offense issue because .... though not always indicative of NFL success ... VY's Wonderlich scores, for QB in a complex offense, scares me. I don't put an end all/be all on those scores but, it is an indicator of VY's ability or willingness to absorb information. We'll see ... mind you, Harrell and Coleman aren't options - never were - but, I'd feel a heck of a lot more comfortable with Young back there than either of those guys

    A chance to do what, exactly?

    Make the team? There was always that chance given the competition.

    A chance to win a game? I hope we don't have the opportunity to find out.

    I'm not sure I wouldn't prefer the Bill's #3 QB, Jeff Tuel. He won't make it to PS, and we wouldn't get near a shot at him via waivers. Such a trade won't happen; there is little about Tuel that is broken for MM and TT to want to fix.

    Oh, the Bills will probably keep him on the active roster with Manuel's knee issue and Kolb's history. It does beg the question...how do the lowly Bills manage to have 3 competent QBs (even if none of them would be outstanding starters) and the vaunted TT scouting can only manage one.

    I think the front office losses over the last few years are taking their toll.

    HRE - Forget Farve is referring to the masses that were against evening signing VY. If you search the threads, you'll see that was a reality just like those who didn't even want TT to bring in Johnny Jolly.

    I wasn't a VY fan early on but he did move the ball as I stated earlier, and proved that his natural ability was greater than Harrell's knowledge of Green Bay's offense.

    As for the 49ers, they just restructured Colt McCoy's contract last night and named him the starter:

    However, that BJ Daniels played darn good against the Vikings. No matter what, two of these three guys will be available after cut-downs if we want to move on from Coleman as well.

    Yeah, with Manual's "minor" knee surgery and Kolb's concussion (which I wasn't aware of at the time I posted that), Tuel gets the start. Note the last lines of that link...they ran out and signed Leinart and traded with Detroit for Thad Lewis.

    THAT is an injury issue.

    I see that your faith in Vince Young has not changed.
