I said before they ever did it that it would help our QB depth simply because he was better than Mauck. But he wasn't ever necessary. I imagine that they would have re-signed Mauck (who knew the offense) and possibly Collins if Volek was out for an extended period of time. But as it was they already started VY after 3 games, so what would the difference have been? Volek's meltdown was the end to him entirely. It didn't earn him competition. It earned him a 1-way trip to the doghouse and an immediate replacement as the #1 QB. Volek had his meltdown in the locker room immediately after the 3rd preseason game (8/26), either than night or the next day. Collins signed on 8/28. Volek was out. In public, he didn't demand a trade. But internally he was as good as traded already. Guess what... we then went with Collins and didn't have a 2nd option. No difference. Except Young was better than Collins and better than Volek. Or what? Vince would have been forced to start in week 4? And those of us who were realistic knew that this was a rebuilding season anyway and it didn't matter who they brought in at QB. It was an option of Volek or a bunch of retreads. None of them were going to lead the Titans to the playoffs. The best thing that could possibly happen was to get Vince ready to play and then get him some experience. And we got more then we could have possibly hoped for... I had no problems with Collins versus other possibilities. I'm saying that they should have stuck with Volek as the starter and used Vince as the backup in the same way they did with Collins once the season actually started. ----------------- Look, it's not hard to understand what I've written. They never needed a 3rd QB in the first place. Not a veteran, anyway.
