    What the hell is a McBoller?

    Nothing, and I repeat *nothing*, has happened on this earth to make me think Billick would not upgrade at the quarterback position, given the opportunity. Do the names 'Elvis Grbac' and 'Trent Dilfer' ring a bell? How about the names 'Kyle Boller' and 'Steve McNair'?

    All the brainiacs in fandom repeating each other like parrots that Billick is too proud to replace Boller, are just plain wrong. Hell, he's already done it once.


    edit: All those correctly pointing out Newsome is the *one* personnel guy are of course, umm, correct. Sorry Billick scapegoaters.

    His definitions and arguments were so clear in his own mind that he was unable to understand how any reasonable person could honestly differ with him.

    Learn to read better. I didn't say he had no say. I said he didn't have a major say, and he doesn't. Boller was his hand-picked QB, yes. And if you think back to that draft, you'll remember that Ozzie tried to trade up with Minny to get Leftwich, and would have gotten him if the Vikings brain-trust weren't a bunch of morons, letting themselves get duped out by the Jags who stalled them long enough to get him.

    Billick wanted Boller, Ozzie wanted Leftwich, they made a huge effort to get Leftwich, it didn't work, they got Boller.

    Billick has some influence in the draft room. Duh, every coach does. But you're fooling yourself if you think Ozzie doesn't call the shots in there.
