    If he takes this job then -- Here endeth the "USC Dynasty" touted after their most recent NC game victory.

    And if the Titans and take Chow do get happily wed it'll be interesting to see if he then chooses his own QB prodigy by way of the draft.
     
  2. they have the #6 pick

    Philip Rivers attributes his success at QB to Chow, and stormin Norm only worked with him for 1 year. Carson Palmer was who before Chow arrived at USC. No doubt Carroll will take credit for Leinart. Chow, Orgeron, the QB coach, and a few other staff. That's going to hurt.

    True enough and that gives those Titans plenty of clout on Draft day.
    Trade up if a QB "star" is on the horizon, trade down with a late 1st or 2nd rd. pick for next year thrown in if Chow sees a protege in the wings. Could Chow go German and look to lock in Berlin for instance? I'm not sure as much can change between now and Draft Day but I believe Berlin may be a late 1st or 2nd round pick. I also think he's the kind of wunderkind in waiting that Chow loves to take to the next level.

    Alex Smith and Aaron Rodgers are both prototype Chow QBs...don't discount a Charlie Frye either.

    With McNair still there and Billy Volek their backup? I'd be surprised to see them take a QB. They're set at QB, WR (Drew Bennett and Derrick Mason), RB (Chris Brown) and TE (Ben Troupe). I think they might take a LT (Alex Barron?) as Brad Hopkins is old, or someone on D, likely Antrell Rolle. Samari and Antrell back there together is scary.

    McNair is nearing the end of the road. I doubt that Volek is their "QB of the future". If anyone can spot and develop young talent, it's Chow.

    I think that's right Mili. Though doubtful, McNair has left open the speculation that he may retire this offseason. While he'll probably be back for 2005, the fact that he's already thinking about retirement, and the punishment he's taken while playing for the Titans, all add up to the likelihood that he isn't going to be playing for too much longer.

    Also correct is your doubt about Volek being their QB of the future.

    Volek was awesome at the end of the year filling in. He outplayed McNair, who has at least a good 3 years left. Volek is real good, and McNair is just talking because they're losing. See Brett Favre, honestly, he does the same thing.

    BuckeyeBK O-H!

    Plus, Volek was playing behind almost all backups on the OL.

    According to today's Tennessean, Chow had a good interview, was not offered the OC job (yet), and Fisher will meet with him after Chow wraps up some personal matters.

    Both Nashville radio stations and some USC message posters (see Wild West board) are saying it's a done deal.

    imo, this was a necessary step by Carroll. The future health of the program just could not be held up to the whim of Chow and ADs from other schools. We'll miss him, and his absence will be felt, but this is the best time for the program to move on.

    Methomps,

    Any chance Chow reconsiders, or is he pretty much gone?

    I would be stunned if he came back.

    If Chow is the Titan OC, what about the Titan's trading up for the SoCal QB. There would be a short learning curve when McNair's body gives out.
