That is shocking news. Fortunately, they have a talented QB like Kyle Boller to step right in.

I don't believe it for a minute.  We'll be in the middle of some Ravens game, and he'll bust up out of the turf and start taking snaps, like some bad Hollywood horror movie.

Good player.  Kicked our ass more than his share of times.

Remember when he came out of school, there were questions about his potential being a small school QB.   Guess he did all right.

Funny.  I remember all of the McNair & Krodell comparisons/talk like it was yesterday; which one was the better passer, better QB, more dangerous, etc.

In retrospect, when you look at each player's career body of work, it really wasn't even close.

So long McNair. Tough fella who knew when it was time to go. He really did have a nice, long successful career for being a (drunk-driving) game manager.
