    well, i would think it would depend on simms. if he resigns i would think they would go with him...or maybe hit up a free agent qb next year. i

    VY will get 1 chance once Collins is gone, and a couple years on the bench might make a world of difference. Titans would be stupid not to have a back-up plan, which at this point could be Simms - they do say he made great strides since we picked him up. It's hard to tell if that's "great strides" (we're shopping him for a trade to a team in need of a #2) or "great strides" (Mr. Young better get with the program cause this kid is on your heels).

    We have 3 years - Collins for the next 2 and Young for 1 after that. If we draft a QB in the 3rd round or higher I think it means Simms is getting shopped. If we wait it means Simms is the emergency plan for now.

    The decision will be made by this time next year. The best time to get rid of Vince is right after next season (in terms of his contract). They'll decide next offseason, and then either get somebody to take over after Collins' second season, or bring in another vet. I'm very curious to see if we bring back Simms.

    Sounds good but a lot would have to happen for that to fall in place. We would have to probably cut Vince. And Collins has already said he wants to be the starter and I'm sure he was told he was while signing his contract so I doubt Cutler would want to come here behind Collins. Although Cutler would have been my pick over Collins since he has more football left in him and since he played at Vandy I'm sure he would be a fan favorite.

    The question was, "After Collins is gone, what will the Titans do?" So, in 2011 he's out of the picture. We will let Vince go, or trade him after next season.
