    WTF!!!1

    Michael_Fabiano: Titans beat writer Jim Wyatt tweets that Jeff Fishers says Vince Young has lost the starting QB job., injury or not.

    An agitated Jeff Fisher said that Tennessee Titans quarterback Vince Young may need surgery to repair a torn flexor tendon in his right thumb and would be out for the season if that is the case.

    More critically, Fisher said that Young has lost his job and that there are sone things that have to be worked through. Fisher said he was told Young threw his shoulder pads and jersey into the stands before leaving the field and that Young said something to him after the game that will be kept private.

    Young, whose third-quarter departure was cheered by the Titans fans on hand, dressed quickly and rapidly walked from the locker room and out of LP Field before speaking with the media.

    Teammate Michael Griffin, wearing only gym shorts and socks, chased after Young and appeared to catch up to him en route to the parking lot but came back a moment later by himself.

    Young completed 12 of 16 passes for 165 yards and no touchdowns before leaving the game for good in the third quarter.

    His replacement, rookie Rusty Smith, finished 3-of-9 for 62 yards and an interception.

    Titans veteran backup Kerry Collins was deactivated prior to Sunday's game with a calf injury, though he was designated the team's emergency quarterback.

    We all better hope Fisher is fired by season's end, or its gonna be a long, long span of mediocrity until the deed is done.

    Fisher and Vince both need to go. Time to clean house like it's been stated before and start from scratch. This entire team should be embarrassed to be seen in public after today.

    I agree with Fish but Rusty is not the solution we have to sing someone.

    Probably needs to be done that way. Hopefully this is his last year here.

    With the 3rd pick in the 2006 NFL Draft the Titans select QB from Texas Vince Young.. One of the happiest days in my life.

    Not so sure these days.
