i swear i've seen someone else say "mcnown" or "mcknown," and i just don't get it. Am i missing something, or do you just have his name wrong? :confused:

Or is it a name used by many to suggest mccown should be starting now?

my bad you are got my point though.

Thanks teacher.....

Ill be the first to say that I think jake delhomme's time has come to really give it up and be a backup...but I also think that next year with a new quarterbacks coach developing him to make sure and practice his mechanics better he might have a chance. I think all the talk about him having a stronger arm after tommy john surgery wasnt reliable...he might have had more zip but he had bad mechanics. Look at the first couple of games the year before he went to all minicamps, all workouts and traning camp and had about 8 tds and 1-2 interceptions before he got hurt. I think that if he can be coached to work on his mechanics and be a little more patient we might see a good quarterback in Delhomme and him being in all workouts, all minicamps and training camps I think he can comeback from this bad year. I mean I honestly dont have trust in mccown or moore. I mean look what happened when we wanted david carr to play over delhomme and how good he did until he got hurt...I know its hard but lets give him one last chance and see what happens next year.

    • I don't feel like we're a sleeper team. We are just mercurial as a franchise- up, down, and in the middle. I really do not know what to expect this year. As it's been said, the O-line is a big question mark. Our interior is good, but the tackle spot is a mystery. I wasn't and am still not high on the Lil Kalil signing, and not because of the contract. He has declined every year since his rookie year. Am I suppose to believe that he has really been chronically injured this whole time and now that he is here with Ryan he is suppose to magically be healthy and perform? I'm not saying it isn't possible- I'm not saying he's def going to suck either. I just have no clue. I think it's a big time gamble from Gman. I hope it works out. And I desperately want to be proved wrong about it too. I hope he fills the hole that's been there since Gross left as a long term solution. And the other thing that worries me that is the coaching staff. Everyone talks about Shula but I'm not high on RR. He took zero accountability in his post season presser- as apposed to Gman who acknowledged his mistakes. I've never really liked him- I'm really wondering if Riverboat was just fools gold. He just feels like Fox 2.0- don't think he can't get us a Lombardi- which is sad because I feel like our roster can. Again, I hope I'm wrong about this. These two things plus our division- The NFCS will be a dogfight this year. 
    • Yeah we fell asleep..the offensive like ducked and the secondary ducked til Bradbury and the other kid stepped up.. but season was done.. need a healthy o-Lind this year and execute or these new weapons are pointless
