Good he deserves it. Even though Young folded, if he got it all back together that would be a scary ass team with a mobile qb like him and those rb's, and defense.

FISHER GIVES COLLINS REASSURANCE

Posted by Sheil Kapadia on January 25, 2009, 3:17 p.m.

Jeff Fisher has made it clear to Kerry Collins that he wants him back as the starter in 2009, but the Titans have not yet started negotiations with the free-agent quarterback, a team source tells ESPN’s Chris Mortensen.

Earlier this month, Collins said he’d retire if he couldn’t find a starting job.

“I made my case known, that I’d like to be here and feel that I can be a part of several more good seasons,” Collins told The Tennessean. “I have several good years left in me, I know that. I will pack up and go somewhere else. I don’t want to, but that’s the reality of this business. . . . I am a starter in this league and if nothing materializes that way I will retire.’’

Another interesting note from Mortensen is that Tennessee is high on Chris Simms and wants to re-sign him. A report in the Chicago Sun

Chris Simms, what of Vince Young. Trade bait???

Good news for Vince Young. Sitting back and learning the QB position is the best thing that can happen for him right now. And Collins deserves to be the starter right now so its a no brainer IMO.

Completely agree. I think that the longer the "mobile QB" fad drags on, the more they seem to rush these guys onto the field. Teams want to start them from day 1 to get the most out of the few years they're at their athletic peak.

Vince is garbage. He's never "had it", so there's no way for him to get it together.

The team was winning despite his poor performance. Collins came in; eliminated the mistakes and you saw what happened.

Young has all the god given athletic ability in the world, but not a single ounce of smarts.

Black QBs dont have smarts. He should be moved to WR. Im still shocked how he took his team to the playoffs his rookie year. Overcoming his stupidity had to be tough on the Titans. At WR he can just go with his natural instincts and wont have to think too much.

HAHAHAH funny you say that.

I would say the exact same thing for Ryan Leaf, and Jeff George.

Wow you are quick with the racial stuff today.

Id say the same thing for Donovan McNabb, Mike Vick, Daunte Culpepper, Pat White. They just arent smart enough to play QB in the NFL.

McNabb and Culpepper are certainly smart enough.

But what about Troy Smith, Garrard, and Leftwich?

Smith & Leftwich dont start, not smart enough. Garrard is just like Vince, a one year wonder. He should be moved to WR, and Del Rio should move Matt Jones to his natural position of QB. I hope the Panthers never ever get a starting black QB. :cool:
