    $15 Million for 2 years. Who inks the contracts on the Titans end? Am I to guess Bud Adams approved this contract? Am I wrong to assume Adams also signed off on Collins coming back to be the starter?

    Now hindsight shows VY should have been the guy but if Hero Bud truly believed that Young was the guy and wanted it that way he could have had it that way.

    He chose to resign Collins. So why is Bud not as much at "fault" as fisher?

    I get the feeling you're not too bright. At least Nate has some good arguments.

    If your team goes 13-3 and your coach says I want the same QB back and I can win you a superbowl, what do you do? Say no? Bud along with most current VY homers had faith in KC. I really thought we could go back to the playoffs and have a decent chance at the superbowl this year, WITH KC. Above all, I'm a Titans fan and I cheer for who I think gives us the best chance to win.

    After starting 0-3, let alone 0-6, changes should have at least been considered. That is why people say its Fisher's fault. He didn't do what it took to improve the team at the time, instead he stuck by KC and it took Bud saying he wanted a change for a change to happen.

    Too much grey area. Bud could have "demanded" a change in week 4 since he's a genius like the other VY backers. Also, No Pitts, Hou, NE and Indys have been played since the bye.

    My point was KS was on board with Collins also. He just ended up trying to save face.

    Yeah but we played Jacksonville again after they destroyed us in week 4, San Fransisco on the road (1-9 on the West Coast going into that game) and a rested Bills team.

    Dont act like those were sure-wins.

    maybe Vince is where he should be, when he should be there. He's had the opportunity to get his feet under him and increase his learning without having to play a top notch team. So by the time we play one of those teams again, he will be more prepared. The 0-6 run was embarrassing to be sure, but good things many times result from failures and I have a feeling one of those good things is going to be Vince.

    It's nice having 2 overpaid quarterbacks on the same roster. The single position that's the most important in this league, and it's the one that's kept our dominant defense from the past 2 seasons without a single playoff win. And, not positive but didn't our D only give up 1 touchdown in each of those 2 playoff games? So sad.

    What's sad is your repeatedly pathetic dribble you keep spouting.
