    SUMMARY: After the most lopsided defeat in 17 seasons, some of the Titans players are showing the frustration. "It is always bickering when you are not winning games," TE Ben Troupe said. "Obviously we are out there to win and when you are not getting it done frustration obviously occurs. But we have to find a way to eliminate the bickering and complaining and get some wins." Troupe suspects some of it is due to the signing of Kerry Collins. "I am pretty sure some guys are (questioning it)," Troupe said. "I am not one of them and who is to say that Kerry isn't hearing it, too. But he is a strong-willed guy and is thick-skinned and can deal with it. And as a team we have to start rooting for each other. We can't be talking behind each other's back and things of that nature. We have to try and keep everything in house."

    Of course they know that signing KFC was a bad move.

    They probably know the "real reason" Volek fell out of favor, and are just watching their backs until they can find their way onto a new team as well.

    Collins, and the idiot who wanted him are a cancer on the team!

    If they come out against Miami and look like they did last week, this team will fully self destruct for the season.

    In Fishers press conference he said there was no bickering or finger pointing going on in the locker room. Typical Fisher blowing smoke..then again no ones believes what he says anymore

    Collins is not a cancer and if he is a problem it is because others have a problem with him and are causing trouble.

    He is only doing what he is told to do.

    It was obvious at the end of last season that JF lost the team, and there is nothing to see this year to say anything has changed.

    No, but the players seem to be more vocal which I think is a good thing.

    Collins is a scab. He has been in Titan blue for less than a month, and yet some will rush to defend him as if he is some kind of leader of this team.

    It is quite clear that despite the attempt to install him as a team leader, he is not leadership material.

    Collins could never earn a position on a team at this point in his career. It is unfortunate for the Titans that he has been handed a "leadership" role by a desparate and confused coaching staff.

    Demote KFC to #3, and watch the team improve.

    no people defend Collins because it is logic.

    Most people had their opinion of him before he got here.
