Tennessee Titans quarterback/headcase Vince Young will start on Sunday when the Titans host Jacksonville Sunday, according to at least one online report. The move comes at the behest of Titans owner Bud Adams, and when a guy named Bud tells you to do something, it’s usually a good idea to go with it.
Collins signed a two-year, $14 million deal in the offseason after guiding the Titans to a 13-3 finish last season. He is 108-of-197 passing for 1,071 yards this season, with five touchdowns and eight interceptions.
But now it’s Young’s turn. In two appearances this season, Young is 0-for-5 with an interception. His last start came last December at Indianapolis, when the Titans rested their starters for the playoffs. –The Tennessean.
And really, after that 59-0 pimp-slapping the Titans took in Foxboro two weeks ago, this is the only move that makes sense. At least Fisher can bask in the lowered expectations of his team and almost certainly count on coming back in 2010. And as of this writing, the Titans are three-point favorites against Jacksonville. Or maybe “3” is the over-under. I’m not too great at this betting stuff.
