    Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky <p>NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Vince Young didn't talk in the Titans last open locker room of the 2008 season.</p> <p>That didn't mean he wasn't talked about.</p> <p>Kerry Collins said he'd love to return as the starter, but will go elsewhere or retire if he doesn't find the right opportunity. Jeff Fisher said Young learned a lot from watching, has to show a big offseason commitment, and is still in line to be the Titans quarterback at some point. [Find the news story on that stuff <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3828101" target="_blank">here</a>.]</p> <p>There is not a scenario where Young is not on the team next year, Fisher said. (I've promised a close look at Young's contract this week.)</p> <p>One thing center Kevin Mawae said struck me as being about Young following a season when the quarterback got hurt in the opener and never reclaimed his starting job from Collins.<br /> <br /> "I think this year, this team learned how to collectively win," he said. "We didn't have one guy that stood out amongst a bunch of other guys. We counted on everybody equally."</p> <p>The Titans were certainly better able to do that after bolstering the roster with a dynamic running back in Chris Johnson and by adding other key parts like guard Jake Scott and return man Chris Carr.</p> <p>The Titans quarterback situation will be debated for a good while unless the Titans are quickly able to re-sign him, which would take assuring him of the starting job.</p>

    I know. VY's contract isn't up until the season after next IIRC.

    The question is, if KFC comes back and is the starter, and VY does stay with the team, how will he react to holding the clipboard?

    I think Fish will make them both duke it out in TC for the starting position.

    One reason, the guy shouldnt be making $58 mil for being a back up. By the sound of this article, it sounds like Fisher might make them compete during training camp which is only fair. If Collins does win the job, it makes sense to adjust his contract now before TC

    I think it's Kuharsky, not Fisher, who is going to be taking a look at VY's contract (which is why that part was in ( ) ).
    2 people high five this.

    You mean his ability to read defenses?
    Vince can chuck it every bit as far as KFC, and as accurately. It's his lack of ability to go through his reads/checkdowns etc. that causes him to throw errant passes.

    Make Vince a WR ala Randel El. Build some plays around his strengths and keep KFC under center...
