    Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky DETROIT - Should Jeff Fisher get second-string quarterback Vince Young in this game?

    The case for it: They might need him at some point this season if Kerry Collins takes a shot, and it would be good for him to get some sort of taste of game action in the interim. It reduces the chance to Collins getting hurt today.

    The case against it: Fisher's not one to pile on. By the time he's ready to play subs, the Titans aren't going to be throwing it and Young would pretty much be asked to be a handoff machine, and maybe get a chance or two to run himself.

    In the Titans blowout win in Kansas City on Oct. 19, Fisher played some subs but did not change quarterbacks. He said afterward that the Titans were only going to run it late anyway.

    I think putting Young in the mix could create more of a distraction than it would be worth. And Fisher, as good as he is at dealing with distractions, would just as soon not create one. If Young does play, he'll be a big story on a day when other guys deserve to be the focus.

    We'll see soon what Fisher decides to do. The Titans just went ahead 41-10 on a 41-yard field goal by Rob Bironas with 2:24 left in the third quarter.

    What do you do if you're making the decision?

    It's kinda funny how Collins first throw this season was a dump for big yards and VY comes back and his first throw is a dump for big yards.

    After much thought and debate i have decided to agree with the idea of playing vince. :ha:


    A great idea for the browns game is to play vince for one series and continue to do that to force teams to have to prepare for him.

    Hawkins made a lovely catch on that pass from VY that didn't count because of the hold.
