    Keep in mind, he'll be playing against second and third teams.

    Hopefully Fisher will start him in a couple of the preseason games, so we can see what he does against starters.

    He showed a lot his rookie year as far as skills go. He had like 10 pass deflections.
    To put that in perspective: Nnamdi Asomugha hasn't had that many in either of his last 2 seasons.
    Jones also had more tackles his rookie year than Nnamdi has had the last 2 seasons.

    So whoever was doubting his SKILLS at that time was well... not very observant. But I think most were critical of his mental mistakes at the time...and forever more for that matter.

    But- skills and play have never been the problem for Pacman. It has been for Vince. Apples and oranges.

    That's the $64,000 question right there.
    That is the hingepin on which VY's future here swings.

    However, that said; I'm willing to bet that McNair's death may have been the last nail in the coffin of his wishy-washy youthful mentality. I hate that it took something like that, but I hope that it snapped him out of that and made him realize he needs to focus on the things at hand and get it done.

    No team is ever going to trade for Vince, and certainly not a divisional opponent (and one with a far superior QB in Schaub). Vince's salary is that of an elite starting QB and no team will take on that cap hit. If (when) his days with the Titans are done, he will be cut, not traded.

    If Vince reduces turnovers and still has his run game, he's better than Collins.

    He doesn't have to improve yardage, or completion percentage or anything else. The difference is only turnovers.

    If he CAN'T fix that, then he's done for.

    IMO, the way he fixes that is to start at the foundation...his mentality/maturity level.

    He'll reduce his turnovers by learning to read the defense better and make quicker and better decisions. He'll learn to make better decisions by humbling himself and listening to what his coaches tell him and applying it.
    He'll learn (and it looks like he's started already) to humble himself and listen to his coaches by growing up and shifting his paradigm.

    It almost seemed like his 'glory' as a Longhorn gave him the idea that he didn't need anymore coaching and that his transition to the NFL would be seamless. Hopefully that mindset has been stripped off him and he can learn.
