The biggest news coming out of the NFL

The Tennessee Titans declining the head case of Vince Young and sending him off to the free-agency waters.

And by Bud Adams, that is called making a top-notch move.

Young has been a huge giant "NOTHING" for the Titans. For all the money that Adams shelled out for him all they got what one playoff appearance (in which they lost to San Diego) and a bunch of a moments in which VY looked like a dumb high school athlete.

Adams had a simple choice to make. He could have kept the current head coach Jeff Fisher, or he could have kept Houston native and volatile quarterback, Young. Fischer and Young have butted heads since the very first days that they were together back in 2006 and the relationship was headed for clear and crystal divorce after Fisher benched Young in favor of the Kerry Collins/Rusty Smith pu-pu platter during a terrible lost to Washington.

Every since then, it was predicted that Fisher would be out after his long tenure at Tennessee.

For Fisher, it wouldn't be so bad for him no matter what happened to him. He is considered an elite NFL coach and he would have been snagged by either an NFL team (Denver, San Francisco, Oakland, Miami) or a top college team nearly instantly if he were fired by the Titan organization.

It really only mattered if he could coach the quarterback that he wanted to coach.

The truth is that Vince Young is not a player that will ever lead a team to a championship. He is not a player that had a history of emotional security. He's not a player that had proved to be a great leader. 

He is not a player that Fisher wanted anything to do with.

Good for Bud Adams to realize that no matter the Houston connections between him and Young, he would have made a huge mistake if he let his head coach go.
