that is if they are indeed going to draft a qb.

don't get me wrong...i hope they are that dumb, but i just don't see it as a smart move.

deuce,
titans may want young to take a year behind mcnair. mcnair and young already have a working relationship together.

Young before Leinart?????

I will go on record and say no way in hell, especially since they will probably purge the franchise of Steve McNair, Young's mentor. In light of the recent events w/McNair and the Titans, I don't think this is a stretch.

I think that even if the Jets leapfrog the Titans, Tenn will take CUTLER before they take Young.

If young goes before Leinart...that'll be a damn shame. I know Young has talent and all, but to think he is better, or more NFL ready than Leinart? Come on.

I still think the Jets are smokescreening the situation. They have Pennington. We got questions about Brees' shoulder, but just think what Jets fans have in their minds. Then there is Ramsey. He still wakes up with nightmares about Spurrier's Pass Pro schemes. Not to mention the faith Gibbs had in him (1st mtg notes "Hi I'm Patrick Ramsey. You're Young Franchise QB.", Gibbs: "You mean Mark Brunell, right?")

Looks like this draft situation may end up a little les cut and dried than we had all hoped. I also see the Jets taking Leinart, and if not him, Cutler. I think they are just trying to deflate bids for the number 2 spot. I also think the Titans are trying to make it seem like they have no interest in Matt to deflate folks from feeling the need to jump ahead of them.

Dear lord I hope we do good.

i'm not saying that young deserves to go before lienart, but what i think will happen. there has been a lot of talk around the league saying that the titans like young better than leinart. that could be a smoke screen, but it is atleast worth mentioning.

Titans also where impressed with Cutler at his pro day. Which by the way Payton did attend. I think the draft shock is that Cutler is off the board first based on his upside, Leinart second QB off based on box seat draw, and young third off due to the poor score on the wonderlic. Without that score as well as minimum work out of the shot gun.

Like everywhere else there is a different Spin every week. I think from a fans perspective they would be happy with either Leinart or Cutler. But most everyone (I speak from fans I know and there are quite a few) know that they need a quarterback and Pennington is not going to be the answer. (He makes a great Cheerleader now though). The Jets have holes too, on OLine and in the secondary, but there D is fairly solid, but the lack of wins and execution lied on offense last year.

From what I'm following I my Opinion is that Cutler will be the first QB off the board based on his talent and smarts. I think Leinart would be a better addition to the Jets with a dink and dunk passing game they run, he would be able to be placed right into the offensive sceme, as he is similar to Pennington in that respect. That being said they also have our similar need at O line and Running Back ( I am a fan of Duce but he's gotta provit this year for the money he's making).

However if the Jets do Move up I think they will take Leinart. If not and we pick at 2 I think Cutler would be a better fit for what we have in place. Hawk or D'Brick at 2 I'd be fine with. Leinart Maybe. Young no way
