Reportedly today Titans head coach Jeff Fisher will announce who his starting Quarterback will be. At this time last year this wasn't even a dilemma. Kerry Collins was leading the Titans to a 13-3 record and Vince Young had officially given up. Currently the Titans are 0-6 and are pretty much mathematically eliminated from any meaningful games this year.
You would think the Titans would just throw in the towel and start who used to be the future of the franchise in Vince Young. They have millions of dollars tied up in him and a $14 million dollar option on him next season. Why wouldn't they just throw him out there and see what they have?
The reason is they already know. They have a mobile Quarterback who led them to some wins early in his career but when times got tough he folded. Titans fans booed him early last year and he refused to go back in the game. He then took his firearm and disappeared scaring his mom so much she called the police, then called Titans coach Jeff Fisher. Of course the whole incident was swept under the rug with Young stating that he just went to his uncle's house to watch TV.
The real problem is that both of them have played poorly this season. Kerry Collins has eight interceptions and just five touchdowns. Vince Young has thrown five passes completing none of them and throwing one interception. If you have to decide between two Quarterbacks it means you don't have one.
Ultimately it won't matter. The Titans will start Young sometime this season if not this week because they have millions of dollars riding on him and because Titans owner Bud Adams will tell Fisher who to start. Fisher will listen because his job might be on the line following this season if the Titans continue to lose.
The Titans have nothing to lose, Vince Young and Jeff Fisher have everything to gain.
