LMAO. Where is it written Bush will be anything special? Just like Bush has a chance, Leinart has a chance. What I know is, this teams needs a QB, not a RB. And I hope they aren't foolish enough to block up all their money in one position like that. It's really funny though where someone would ask what's guaranteed about Leinart, when nothing is guaranteed about Bush either. Priceless.

Wait, and Bush wouldn't? Leinart has already said he will play for whoever drafts him, and try to help them win. People around Bush are already questioning whether he should stay TO AVOID THE SAINTS. Wow.

I'm concerned that Leinart hasn't faced an inside rush like those of the NFL. His worst decisions came when flushed from the middle. I'm also concerned about his arm strength and the size of his hands. His tendency is to miss high which is an indicator of either or both, and those defects will be more pronounced in the pros.

Trade down or take the best available then trade away for more picks. There are too many gaps to fill.

He signed an agent, or he has been interviewing agents? He still has until Jan 15th to declare for the draft, and he hasn't officially done that yet either. Same with all players who want to enter the draft early. Neither has Lendale White. Still 9 days to go, he could change his mind. Although I don't expect him to.

Steve McNair's out:

McNair's agent, Titans in process of sorting out dealBy Len Pasquarelli
ESPN.com
Archive

In the feeding frenzy created by this week's start of the NFL playoffs and the end of so many head coaching tenures, the strong intimations from Tennessee Titans quarterback Steve McNair that he wants to return for 2006 and beyond got lost in the din.

Too bad, because it's a fairly significant occurrence, both for the Titans and for the NFL as well.

In an offseason that could include the departure of Brett Favre from the league landscape, losing a second warrior like McNair to retirement, or having him perhaps relocate, would be a real downer. However, it appears Titans and NFL fans won't have to concern themselves with McNair's departure.


Despite the Titans' 4-12 record, McNair seems legitimately convinced they are not that far away from getting things turned around. He likes the offense installed by first-year coordinator Norm Chow, sees the potential of a young corps of wide receivers and a very productive contingent of tight ends, and doesn't share the opinion of those who feel Tennessee requires a dramatic makeover. While the season included the kinds of aches and nagging injuries that have marked McNair's career the last three years, he did not miss significant playing time.

McNair will be 33 in February, hardly AARP age for quarterbacks, and he feels he can play about three more seasons. The sticking point, of course, is the monster $50 million roster bonus he is due in March, a mechanism included in his contract to force both sides back to the bargaining table. The good news: General manager Floyd Reese and agent James "Bus" Cook, who also represents Favre, have already started in on the contract negotiations.

Under his current contract, McNair is due base salaries of $9 million (2006), $11 million (2007), $13 million (2008) and $15 million (2009). Toss in the $50 million roster bonus and the total comes to a prohibitive $73 million for the next four years. But McNair isn't looking to be prohibitive. If anything, he has adopted a proactive stance, in announcing he wants to return and be a major component in reversing the Titans' fortunes.

There has been considerable speculation McNair and the Titans might be prepared to part ways after 11 seasons. The rumor mill keeps grinding grist about McNair's possibly going to the Miami Dolphins to finish his career. Don't bet on it. The groundwork has been laid for McNair to stay with the Titans. It will take some time and effort and some haggling as well, and a reworked contract might not be struck until just before the $50 million roster bonus comes due, but all signs point to an accord that will allow McNair to finish his career with the Titans.

And Jacobs has not declared for the draft, and why would we want him anyway? Next.

A side note. Do you have to be a college player to enter the draft or could any amateur footballplayer enter?
Just thought of the NHL where they draft players from allover the world (not only amateurs thou9.
