The smartest thing for us to do at the QB position is keep VY at least until his contract is up, this is to minimize paying him a lump sum of money while he plays for another team. No team is going to trade for VY when the team has already announced to release him anyway. Releasing VY is going to cost us more money than firing Jeff Fisher did. So how do you intent on bringing in good coaches and players and high draft picks through the draft if we are wasting money paying people to leave?
This is why I say keep VY as the starting QB, let Kerry Collins go because he’s not any form or fashion part of this teams future. Sign a new QB to at least start learning the play book along with whatever system the new coaching decide to bring it; then see if Jeff Fisher was really the reason VY had so many personal issues. If VY still has issues and doesn’t play well then don’t resign him the in 2011. This way we won’t have any ties left to him.
I like VY but at the same time I love my team and want them to do well, sometimes I’ve gotten very frustrated with what have went on as far as the organization goes; but when the smoke clears it all comes down to what works for this team and not what the fans want.
This is how I think our roster should look next year.
Listed starters through bottom of the roster:
QB- VY, Rusty Smith, Rookie QB (either 1st or 2nd round guy)
FB- Arhmad Hall
I’m skipping O-line because that takes a lot more time to analyze (I would draft an Offensive linemen and also try to strengthen the position through free agency.)
Return Men- Marc Mariani and Yamon Figurs (Preferably they take turns on Kickoffs, but Mariani runs all punts)
To me this is the roster that will save us the most money, and allow us to see the potential of our new coaches. Good coaches could make this roster work!
