    heres the thing.. VY during his breakdown was saying.. "I dont even know if I wanna play anymore", then KC comes out (after having a 13-3 season mind you) and essentially wants to retire as a Titan. Kerry gets the job. Any QB that can get us to 10-0 is my guy. VY, as much as I like his play making ability, is still on the bench in my book. He needs to be humbled because he probably thought all along, that he was gonna be the guy next year. He can get upset and pull another stunt but that only hurts him in the future. He knows how stupid he looked. I dont think we will ever see VY as a Titans starting QB. I think he will be traded because the organization tends to not put up with BS.

    I agree with you.

    But I don't agree with your sig. The only screwjob is the one the Titans pulled on themselves. I hate it when Ravens and Chargers fans put things on the refs. We should have beaten them by 3 scores. We had our chances.

    That being said, it was a bad call. I put more of the blame on lendale, Bironas (with the wind), and Crumpler before I'd blame it on blown call.

    That did it. Comments like this prove we need mandatory drug testing on this board.

    The bottom line was we laid an egg in the playoffs similar to the Chargers two years ago when they had an outstanding record but turned the ball over in the playoffs. This logic is totally backwards. We dominated the Ravens but lost because of the turnovers. The team we would have played this week, the Steelers, we dominated a few weeks ago. We had home field! This team was primed to go to the SB AND WIN. Our OL and DL were outstanding. We had one of the biggest playmaking RBs in the league (I guess Fisher should have known CJ would get hurt?). I wouldn't change a thing. Re-sign as many of the better players we can, especially AH and KC. Try and get another playmaker in the draft and we will be primed and ready for another run.

    Also, VY had his chance. He could have been part of this SB run. His play on the field and crappy attitude cost him that chance. There is no way in hades you bench KC when he is part of the team winning almost every game.

    Your inability to understand where he was coming from is amazing to me. How do you compare vince young to jim sorgi? Vince is the future because we're paying him 30 million dollars and he was the #3 pick in the draft. The guys you listed are back-ups. How is that so hard to understand?

    I don't see any reason, if VY is a backup next year, not to incorporate some "Wildcat" style sets in the playbook. It only gives us another dimension...and think about this...

    VY, CJ, and Lendale all in the backfield at the same time. You can't just key on VY anymore. You could run options, pass, run downhill. That would be tough for D's to stop. (again, only as a change of pace, not a full change in offensive gameplanning)

    I want Collins to be the QB next season but I wish I could go into an alternate universe and see Young play a full season under Heimerdinger and having Johnson in the backfield. If I was a QB I would like my chances better with Dinger and Johnson than I would with Lendale and Chow. Collins is better but I also think he was in a much better situation to succeed than Young was last season

    To add to that, 2007 was Gage's first season as a Titan. He was still learning the system. He ended up with more receptions and yards with Vince at QB.

    And in 2006, VY's rookie year, we had Travis Henry on one of his best years. Travis 2006 > Lendale 2007. Also had Drew Bennett who was playing with extra motivation for a contract.

    vince gump is a backup.

    just because a guy makes a lot of money doesnt mean he is good enough to be the future

    What i'm curious about is why wasnt VY around the Monday following the game when players met with the media for the last time? I would of liked to hear his thoughts on the season,how hes changed, and how hard hes going to work in the offseason to be the starting QB next year. If nothing else he should of made a statement to the fans and given those who have written him off reason to believe that hes going to come back stronger next year. I know some of us have been hard on him including myself but it would of been good for him to address the media and fans one last time before the season ended, thats just my opinion
