    Thumbs down Any McNair apologists still out there?



    This is what we got for $33 million? A "whopping" 49.9 rating, two picks, against a mediocre Colts defense. He blew on two potential TD passes to Heap that would have reversed the game. ralph: This loss is squarely on McNair's shoulders. Sorry - no more excuses: after we emptied our warchest, we expected playoff calibre performances. Trent Dilfer, Elvis Grbac, even Anthony fuckin' Wright outperformed this bozo in the playoffs.

    On top of that, we may not now be able to afford to keep Adalius.

    I say: cut our losses, dump his salary now, eat the rest of his signing bonus. Let's build for the future. We are going nowhere behind an 82 rated QB who chokes in playoffs games.

    In a 2003 BBC poll that asked Brits to name the "Greatest American Ever", Mr. T came in fourth, behind ML King (3rd), Abe Lincoln (2nd) and Homer Simpson (1st).

    T...granted he sucked major ass tonight but he alone won us a few games this year. We need to draft out QB of the future and have McNair tutor him.

    Re: Any McNair apologists still out there?

    McNair had the bye week to rest and, as far as I know, had no injuries. so wha happened?
    next year? Start the best available qb, whether McNair, Boller, Olson, or whomever's on the Free Agent market. It would be a shame to waste the last 2-3 good years from Jamal, Ray & Ogden waiting for a college guy to develop.
    considering how many qbs have come & gone and how poor the Offense has consistently been, perhaps BB should hand the O over to Neuheisel and see what happens.

    Honestly, Boller should start in '07


    If he was in today, I feel like at least we'd have had a chance.


    McNair didn't seem to turn anything on in this game, besides the INTs.


    It didn't even seem like he gave a fuck.

    We have a year to get a young guy ready to go. ...so in '07 Mac9 will still be starting.

    There is a chance to get a young guy in the draft and to work on Boller, then in '08 it's on to the new.

    However, next year is the last chance for about 6-8 vets on the team

    He never does. Sometimes it's good, sometimes it's bad. That is also why I don't think he'd be a great tutor, but just because he wouldn't be a good tutor doesn't mean we can't have a young & growing qb in our system.

    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.

    LOL

    Yea, we would've gone 13-3 and had a bye with Boller.

    We lost.

    McNair played like shit.

    STFU and accept it.

    Agreed. It is puzzling how a guy can play so good for 13 games, and so poor for 3.

    i can't believe some of you want boller in there instead of mac 9. if we would have won the game, you'd all be calling him the savior of the team like everyone did when we were winning during the season. it's startin to sound like a redskins board in here, stop all the whinin. we lost, it sucks, but you can't put the game on one player. mcnair will be back next year and we'll have a helluva season, stop all the cryin and bitchin.

    So tell me something.

    What was your opinion of this offense from the time Billick took over the play calling until tonight?

    Did you not like the 9 wins in 10 games we ripped off?

    Or was that just the defense doing it?

    You're the fuckin mental midget.

    Tell me, who's the savior QB and coach?

    I'll use a quote from someone else.

    Which play was Billick's worst?

    1. Heaps fumble.
    2. McNair's first INT
    3. McNair's 2nd INT


    Just be quiet, OK?

    Pre-Billick:
    181 yds, 63.0%
    143 yds, 48.5%
    264 yds, 56.1%
    158 yds, 56.7%
    165 yds, 58.8%

    Post-Billick:
    159 yds, 73.9%
    245 yds, 67.7%
    373 yds, 61.7%
    236 yds, 70.6%
    140 yds, 75.0%
    227 yds, 60.5%
    283 yds, 77.8%
    256 yds, 67.7%
    216 yds, 65.7%

    While he's been accurate once the system was changed, he's generally been pedestrian.

    What this tells me is:
    1) Playcalling matters a LOT.
    2) We need a real QB that can lead this team for the future. McNair's stats aren't going to magically improve.
